Matalan stores have all the angles covered

Retailer Matalan has taken delivery of two new goods only lifts from Elephante bringing the total supplied to this company to over 80 lifts in nine years.  The latest installations are in Colindale, North London and Elgin in Scotland.

The Colindale goods lift was installed into an existing Matalan store and featured a car with its entrance/exit gates at right angles.   It is designed to operate over four levels including split level floors. The lift was designed specifically for the location which had no available lift pit and required a minimum height load ramp. The site also had very restricted headroom.

In Elgin the goods lift was installed into a new build and had to comply with the strict fire regulations found in Scotland.  This required the modification of an existing design to meet the more demanding regulations.

Commenting on the work, Phil Wragg of the Elephante design and development team said: “Whether it is a retro-fit or a new build, the retail environment operates to tight programmes and we are pleased that Matalan recognise our ability to deliver on time and to specification.”
