Using steel, aluminium, glass and as little plastic as possible allows for recyclability of almost all the materials that are needed to manufacture Gartec lifts, with up to 92% of the materials used already from recycled and sustainable sources. All that is left which is non-recyclable are parts of the electrical cable system and the battery. Aritco, our parent company are constantly developing our lifts and as battery technology changes, our lifts will be developed to incorporate recyclable batteries.
With rigorous development to achieve maximum recyclability and the forward thinking on materials, manufacturing processes and new technology we are always looking to provide the most eco-friendly lift solutions. We are proud that every step taken from Design to Installation, sustainability and energy efficiency has been factored into the process.
When considering energy efficiency in your home, Gartec lifts are powered by a 2.2kw motor which uses less energy than a standard domestic kettle or hairdryer. Similarly, the low-energy LED lighting and display components all contribute to a more sustainable and greener solution. View our energy-efficiency brochure for more information.
