Platform lift installation at the Goodwood Festival of Speed site

Platform Lift for the Festival of Speed

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is an annual event for car lovers across the UK and beyond, featuring historic and modern racing vehicles attempting the famous hill climb in as short a time as possible. The festival attracts crowds of over 100,000 visitors on each of three days over the holiday weekend.

Due to the nature of the event, temporary buildings are erected to serve the needs of the visitors. Losberger UK Ltd are one such specialist in the supply of Goodwood's temporary event structures. This year, they erected a hospitality suite which required a lift over just four days to assist with access during the Festival of Speed.

Invalifts were contacted, and managed to supply and install their external platform lift, the LRH400 Platform lift within the tight installation deadlines. The lift needed to travel 3.3 metres with an open adjacent arrangement and glazed doors to serve the hospitality suite. With a 400 kilogram capacity and being fully weatherproofed against the unpredictable British weather, the lift was the perfect solution for access to the hospitality suite.

After the festival ended, the lift was carefully disassembled and taken back into storage for reuse again next year.
