3 Stannah goods lifts support growing CLEAN Yeovil laundry
A trio of Stannah Goodsmaster CD goods-only lifts has been installed in the Yeovil branch of CLEAN Linen and Workwear.
Installed over three years, each lift reflects and supports the depot’s ongoing development by lightening the growing workload.
About CLEAN Yeovil
Part of CLEAN Linen Services, CLEAN Yeovil is a vital link in one of the UK’s leading independent laundry companies, an organisation that delivers linen and workwear rental services to leading brands such as Harbour Hotels, Honda and Premier Inn.
Why specify a third Goodsmaster CD?
“Since opening in July 2011 the plant has grown significantly, from delivering 250,000 pieces of linen per week to our customers to now 800,000 pieces per week.
“We have seen significant investment over the years to accommodate this growth. One addition to the plant was a mezzanine floor, installed in 2018 as floor space was becoming very tight.
“The mezzanine is used to hold the cages of soiled linen prior to sorting and washing. We needed a reliable lift to transport circa 600 cages per day up and down. The latest goods lift was one of several choices offered to us by the company who installed the mezzanine floor – Rose Engineering. We were happy to opt for the Stannah Goodmaster CD 1500kg as its two predecessors perform to our complete satisfaction.
“We are happy with the construction, performance and durability of the lifts and the service from Stannah. There was a small hitch with the first installation, but this was rectified quickly. I would be quite happy to purchase another lift from Stannah if required in the future.”
—Geoff Milverton, Site Director, CLEAN Yeovil
From the specifier, Joe Baker, Estimator at Rose Engineering
“We worked closely with our client, CLEAN Yeovil, to deliver a goods lift to match their exact requirements—a sturdy lift that would transport heavy, laundry-laden roll cages between two floors.
“From the choices we offered they chose Stannah as they have a previous contract with this company, so they knew exactly what they would be getting and that it would deliver exactly what was required of it—including the after-sales service.”
Client: CLEAN Linen Services Limited
Total upgrade project cost: £7 million
Stannah Goodsmaster CDs:
1 x 1500kg—installed in 2019
1 x 1000kg—installed in 2018
1 x 500kg—installed in 2017
Supplied in a structure-supported frame, each lift was quick and easy to install in a matter of days. The Stannah installation team flexed around the premises’ operation with minimum disruption to everyone involved.
"The first lift was installed to service our first-floor storage / chemical room back in 2017. The second lift was installed 2018 to service the mezzanine floor. The third lift was installed in 2019 to run parallel with the mezzanine floor lift installed in 2018."
—Daniel Stalley, Engineering Manager, CLEAN Yeovil
An efficient, responsive laundry depot—fit for purpose and responding to the industry’s growing laundry-load.
A Stannah wheelchair platform lift supports access in Castle Howard
Only a Stannah Stairiser CR (Curved Rail) wheelchair platform lift could help support the mobility requirements of Castle Howard in North Yorkshire—the stately home of the Howard family for over 300 years.
Matthew Nicholson, Head of Commercial Operations at Castle Howard, explains why:
“The previous lift was supplied by an overseas supplier. Whilst it had served us well it had come to the point where it was unreliable and repair parts had become impossible to source. The lift had been in place for many years and with the high volume of paying visitors (+250,000 annually) it was business-critical that we replaced it.”
First for market-leading status, competitive cost and timescale performance
“We approached three main suppliers, including the company who were maintaining the existing lift for us. All of the suppliers had experience in installing stairisers into Grade I-listed buildings. Stannah is recognised as a UK market leader in this area and was the most competitively priced. The schedule of works from point of ordering was also a key issue and Stannah was able to meet our timescales.”
First for bespoke capability
“In keeping with English Heritage guidelines, our conservation architect, curator and the Howard family insisted that no further drill holes were made into the historic and protected Grand Staircase. Stannah was very open to this and installed the lift stanchions to the fixing points of its predecessor. Stannah also closely matched the lift colour with the natural stone walls.”
Client: Castle Howard Estate Limited
Architect: Sir John Vanbrugh and Nicholas Hawksmoor
Internal area: 140,000 square feet
Grounds: 3,561 hectares (8,800 acres); a mix of farmland, woodland and parkland
Visitors per annum: 250,000 and growing
Installed in just a few days, ahead of time and budget—in time for Christmas 2019…
“Whilst we remained open to the public, Stannah rose to the challenge with aplomb and even worked outside normal business hours to ensure minimal disruption to our visitors. The installation was completed ahead of schedule and was crucial to our Christmas operation—our busiest time of year— where we welcomed over 67,000 visitors to the house.”
A 17th-century heritage
Castle Howard is the Grade I-listed ancestral home of the Howard family. Construction began in 1699 and took over 100 years to complete.
Set in sumptuous grounds, the House is accustomed to the limelight when it comes to films and television appearances. These include Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon, Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited and, most recently, ITV’s Victoria.
Part of the Treasure Houses of England, this Baroque/Palladian masterpiece is both the family’s private residence and an iconic tourist attraction with over 250,000 visitors per year.
"The installation of the Stannah Stairiser access lift is a vital component in a constant programme of conservation, restoration and maintenance that ensures the House and wider Estate is safeguarded for future generations."
Accessible to All
To cater for visitors of all mobility levels, Castle Howard has a comprehensive accessibility policy. This comprises many elements including car parking, a hearing loop, on-site manual wheelchairs and the Stannah Stairiser CR wheelchair platform lift.
“Accessibility is key to the visitor experience and so the Stannah Stairiser CR has had a huge impact on the enjoyment and ease with which visitors with mobility restriction can experience the wonders of Castle Howard and its collection of art and antiquities.
"Additionally, the lift has taken a great deal of stress away from the staff who welcome the visitors to the House, knowing that they can easily move wheelchair users and mobility restricted guests up to the principal floor of the house."
About the Stannah Stairiser CR
Centre stage when it comes to its role—but appropriately discreet in its presence—this disabled lift takes visitors up the Grand Staircase to the main floor of the House and to most of the rooms.
One of the slimmest wheelchair platform lifts on the market, it provides discreet, efficient movement for mobility compromised people, either one person in a wheelchair or a person seated on the lift seat provided.
The curved rail allows this access lift to navigate the staircase that rises in two stages, with a linking level that lends a natural grace to the incline and where visitors can stop to admire the family portraits lining the walls.
When not in use, the folding platform and barrier arm ensure that the lift compacts away neatly and leaves the stairway free for pedestrian use.
Safe to use
Built-in safety features mean it's impossible to operate the lift until the barrier arms and ramps are folded in place.
Easy to operate
Easy-to-use constant-pressure controls allow the lift-users to operate it independently.
The lift stops automatically at the upper and lower landings and the intuitive controls allow the user to stop the lift at any time.
