    NEW PRODUCT RELEASE – Orion C350 Commercial Lift

    Here at Aussie Lifts we are always at the forefront of developing our existing products, whilst also manufacturing new and exciting products. For some time now, we noticed a gap in the market for an Australian Made sliding door elevator. So for the past 18 months, our research and development team have been working hard on designing a solution for this gap. Today we are pleased to announce the release of the Orion C350.

    The Product

    The Orion C350 is the largest of all our lifts with a travel of up to 7.5 metres (4 levels). This lift is perfect for schools, factories, organisations & government buildings that require disability access to their premises.

    Built to Australian Standard 1735 part 16, the Orion C350 lift is BCA E3.6 compliant and is perfect for complying with the disable access regulations for commercial buildings, whether it be for a new or existing buildings.

    Offering an alternative to the costly expense associated with providing load bearing walls, large slab footings and a machine room, the Orion C350 comes complete with it’s own light-weight self supporting lift shaft, sliding landing doors and machine cabinet.

    Capable of servicing up to four levels with a maximum travel of 7.5 metres, the Orion C350 is powered by an advanced chain-over oil hydraulic drive system that requires no over head space or structural support. Requiring only a few days to install, the Orion C350 lift is built in Australia, which results in very short lead times. Rated for 350kg, the Orion C350 can easily carry three people and has a clear floor space of 1200mm x 1400mm x 2100mm.

    Leave a Comment

    The Client

    Established in 1970, Heisig Constructions is a family owned business operating throughout the greater Brisbane area. Heisig homes are different. They are unique. Each of their homes are a reflection of their multi award winning commitment to the design and construction of individual, energy efficient homes of exceptional quality.


    The Project

    Heisig Constructions recognised the value of including an elevator to new home builds. So after much research, they approached us to supply a Phoenix elevator for their beautiful display home ‘The Dream Catcher’.  Heisig Constructions planned this home as a smart home, which allows full access to the home for everybody! This display home is the first in the area to include consideration for disability access, allowing everybody of any ability to enjoy what they are creating!

    When manufacturing the lift, we worked very closely with the team from Heisig to ensure that the lift was finished to the highest standard.


    The Result

    The Phoenix lift has now been operational for just over 12 months and it is serving its purpose perfectly. The chosen cosmetic selections compliment the display home seamlessly.

    Since it’s addition, many people have enjoyed using the lift which has resulted in many enquiries. Heisig continues to deliver on its responsibility of meeting market demands and we are happy to partner with their great team in the future.

    NEW PROJECT – Alzheimers Association lifts

    Because we manufacture our lifts, we are able to offer our clients custom sized lifts as per their requirements. This was the case with a recent project for the Alzheimer’s Association of Queensland.

    The Client

    We were approached by the team from Alzheimer’s Association of Queensland. Their Upper Mount Gravatt complex required an alternative access solution to their current ramp system.

    The Project

    The customer requested two custom sized elevators, which we were able to supply within their firm construction deadlines. Our sales team worked closely with the Alzheimers team to achieve the best result for each allocated space. After many consultation meetings, we were able to come up with a great access solution for the project. The in-house building designers from Alzheimer’s were able to visit our factory and showroom where they saw the lifts being built. As well as they were able to see our range of cosmetic options to which they were able to select the cosmetic options that worked for each building.

    The Result

    The lift has now been operational for a few weeks and it is servicing its purpose perfectly. The chosen cosmetic selections finished product looks great and serves its purpose perfectly.

    Leave a Comment

    Along with our new website, we have had some exciting events happen here at Aussie Lifts.

    New Ownership

    In January 2017, Mr Sam McLaughlin approached Aussie Lifts with the intention of joining the network of authorised Aussie Lifts re-sellers. After learning more about the company & the staff, Sam was very impressed with what the business stood for and how knowledgeable the staff were. He decided to approach the business owner, Ian Lawrance, directly asking if he would be interested in selling the company to him. Ian and his wife Dale were looking to retire, so they made the decision to sell the company. After 21 successful years, they had definitely earned it. Sam also approached Todd Lawrance asking if he would like to partner with him to be part of the future of Aussie Lifts. To which, Todd agreed. At the end of May, the business was sold to Sam McLaughlin & Todd Lawrance.

    The Partnership

    Todd Lawrance brings many years of lift industry experience to the company. He has worked at Aussie Lifts for over 15 years. He is constantly at the forefront of new development and manufacturing.

    Sam McLaughlin brings a fresh perspective & feel to the company. Sam has the experience of running many successful companies, so his knowledge is going to be very beneficial for the company and it’s ever growing clientele.

    The Future

    The future looks very bright for Aussie Lifts. We cannot wait to share the next few exciting months with our customers & re-sellers.
