With the popularity of basement kitchens and home renovations increasing, a Battersea H3 (rope operated) or H4 (handle operated) lift is an economical way to provide that vital link between the floors of your home.

Our customers love the fact that our dumbwaiters are economical to run and easy to install. In fact, they can be fitted by your own builders and personalised to suit your chosen décor.

We are the only manufacturer of hand lifts in the UK and as our domestic lifts are incredibly reliable and economical to run, they are a popular choice for both the modern home and listed buildings alike.
