Reasons to Buy a Public Lift

According to WHO (World Health Organization), more than one billion people, or 15% of the world population, live with some form of disability, and accessibility is one of the fundamental rights in the Bill of Human Rights. If the activities of your establishment spread across several floors, investing in a public lift or a commercial elevator is not only the right thing to do, but a smart thing to do. Not only will a lift add value to your building for potential buyers and tenants; it will also be of great benefit to anyone experiencing difficulties climbing the stairs, and that is a lot of people!

What is the Best Public Lift Solution?

What type of lift you should choose for a public environment depends on how much space you have and what you want to use the lift for. If you are looking for a wheelchair-friendly elevator, we recommend a platform size of 900 x 1400 mm (w x d) or bigger, for platform elevators, or a lift car size of 1100 x 1400 mm (w x d), for cabin elevators. However, if you need an elevator that can take large goods, you need to go bigger, at least up to 1405 x 1980 mm. And, for lifts that need to take stretchers and hospital beds, you need to go even bigger, preferably to a platform size of 1405 x 2480 mm (w x d). Kalea offers you the choice between two types of lifts, that both have their advantages:


  • Platform sizes from 900 × 1467 mm – 1405 x 2480 mm (w x d)
  • Rated load: 400 kg (max 5 persons) – 1000 kg (max 10 persons)
  • Always comes with a ready-made lift shaft
  • Indoor or outdoor installation
  • No separate machine room, no lift pit
  • Min headroom: 2300 mm with standard single-hinged doors
  • Platform controls: hold-to-run*
  • Landing controls: automatic drive

*According to European Standards. For countries outside the EU, automatic drive may be allowed.


  • Cabin sizes from 1100 x 1400 mm – 1100 x 1700 mm (w x d)
  • Rated load: 385 kg (max 4 persons) – 630 kg (max 8 persons)
  • Indoor installation only
  • Available with, or without, a ready-made lift shaft
