United Kingdom



Alimak Hek has been the industry leader in supplying lifts based on rack & pinion drive technology for almost 50 years. Over 30,000 Alimak Hek rack & pinion solutions have been installed over a broad spectrum of industries around the world.

Goods Lifts for every application
Alimak Hek rack & pinion Lifts & Hoists are built to operate in the most extreme environments, so our range of Goods Only Lifts are ideal for the safe and reliable movement of goods and materials in every application.

Motor room less and shaft less
Alimak Hek’s rack & pinion drive system is unique as the lifts do not require a load bearing shaft or machine room as the lifts carry their own machinery. Lifts are designed in accordance with the Machinery Directive for goods only use.

Versatile and robust
The diverse range allows unique flexibility with capacities from 300kg to 4,000kg with a wide choice of car sizes on single or twin mast configurations as well as duplex models operating on a single mast.

Many types of manual car and landing doors are available including swing, sliding, bi-parting and shutter. Lifts are available with single entry, through car and adjacent entry arrangements. Lift cars can be open or enclosed with buffer rails and robust flooring as standard.

There is practically no restriction on travel distance and accurate floor levelling is achieved irrespective of load or lifting height. Installations can be internal or external and easily retrofitted to existing structures and buildings.

Alimak Hek’s range of Goods/Service Lifts incorporate all the safety features that have made our lifts a benchmark for the lift industry worldwide. The unique progressive Alimak safety device comes into operation should the lift exceed the rated speed, bringing the car to a smooth stop. The lifts are also fitted with an overload sensing device.

Remote Monitoring
Alimak Hek’s online A3 remote monitoring system can be fitted as an accessory. This gives the ability to fully monitor the lift and trace any faults instantly. This accessory can improve response time for corrective diagnostics and minimize downtime.
