Viewing Platform at Brooklands Museum Accessible with Platform Lift

Gartec Platform Lifts

Brooklands Museum recently completed a project refurbishing a WW2 hangar with a mezzanine viewing platform.

Gartec provided everything to make an informed decision. We're surprised how quickly the team completed the installation – efficient, clean and professional. The lift ticks all the boxes and opened the upper space for everyone to enjoy”
