Irish Castle  – A5000 Cabin Lift

Customer Requirements

This customer required a minimalist and easy to use lift for their 17th century castle. The main challenge was to not interrupt the original stone feature wall of this unique building.

The customer required a lift that would be able to travel through 5 floors whilst respecting the unique architecture in which it would be set amongst. 

Our Solution

Pollock Lifts produced a bespoke A5000 lift which was able to travel 17m through 5 floors, then finishing with a glass box standing only 2250mm above floor level.

The new AL6 doors were also used on this lift meaning the door leaf is 90% glass. This 17m travel enclosed platform lift has helped to transform this unique building into a convenient and luxurious Holiday Home for an American client.

Modern design complimenting historic architecture

The functional needs of this unique and historic building required a modern, reliable lift with style and elegance that would not detract from the stone features in which it is set.

Its clever design of a 90% glass door leaf allows the lift to fit discreetly into the original features of the building. As such it never distracts from the historic and interesting features of this 17th century renovated castle.
