The celebrated installation took place at the Masonic Housing Association sheltered housing facility at Castle Street in Aylesbury. The bright new Aritco 7000 lift will service the 32 retirement flats at the site, originally built in 1980. It replaced a small dark lift with an awkward heavy door and will go a long way to make residents’ lives easier.
The Mayor of Aylesbury, Tom Hunter-Watts attended the handover ceremony and gave his seal of approval, after taking a test drive of the new lift along with the Warden, Margaret Farrow; the builder, Paul Wakefield, and Matt Akerman from Gartec. A large bouquet of flowers was presented to Margaret Farrow and Gartec also provided tea and cakes for all the residents.
Residents were quick to praise the new lift saying, “We love our new lift, it is so easy to use, the doors are easy to open and we can use the big mirror inside to do our make-up on the way down!”
The Aritco 7000 is an ideal solution for residential and care facilities needing to replace tired or unserviceable equipment with reliable and cost-effective replacements. An Aritco 7000 platform lift is approximately 50% cheaper than a comparable conventional lift and suits facilities which need to fully function during the installation. Disruption is kept to an absolute minimum with retrospective installations undertaken in just 2 days.
For 20 years Gartec has been offering a comprehensive range of platform lifts, lift accessories and maintenance options for a wide variety of commercial and domestic applications.
