"Made in Sweden" a force internationally
Consolidated lift solutions are developed and manufactured at Cibes in Gävle. Cibes Lift is a quality concept internationally. Development, production and expertise are gathered at the main plant in Gävle to secure quality levels. Work on streamlining in terms of logistics and distribution includes fast, safe transport to all over the world. Smart and practical packaging that provides smooth handling for the customer during installation.
Technical innovation and flexibility in design
The Group's lift programs have been developed gradually over the years. The lifts have become more flexible and adaptable to different environments and customer requirements, installation has been simplified with project-specific modules and the accessories range has expanded.
Simplifies accessibility in existing buildings
When requirements for accessibility in existing buildings are tightened up, it is important that low speed lifts are able to be installed without extensive renovations. Cibes lift solutions make this possible. The lift designs are flexible, they require little space (including a minimal lift pit) and installation is simplified through module deliveries adapted to each project. Many of the smaller Cibes lift models can be installed in a few hours.
The drive solution with screw and nut technology
This technology offers many advantages compared with hydraulic lift and chain-driven solutions. It is straightforward and provides a smooth, quiet and safe ride. Installation is quick and simple.
Support for architects and contractors
A large number of Group employees possess many years of know-how on accessibility solutions for different environments. This knowledge is available to, for example, architects and contractors in their efforts to select, design and customize lift solutions. For architects, Cibes has invested in BIM (Building Information Modeling). Being able to download lifts as digital objects means a lot when they are simulating and presenting lift solutions.
Opportunities for architectural adaptation
Many choices in terms of materials, finishes, colours of the lift shaft and door models give designers ample opportunities to adapt their design to customize a lift solution to its surrounding environment.
