Vertibus Passenger Lifts

A passenger lift has a completely enclosed lift car that travels vertically within a specially prepared lift shaft. Passengers are transported between floors at reasonably quick speeds and the control systems are designed to give the most economical distribution of passengers throughout the building.

Vertibus can supply any kind of passenger lift on the market and our speciality is customising them to meet your requirements, no matter how challenging they may be. Our highly skilled and experienced team of lift engineers have vast experience in designing these types of lifts and have a real expertise in creating bespoke elevator systems and fitting them into unworkable spaces. Designed to transport passengers quickly and effectively from floor to floor, our passenger lifts can add an attractive quality to any building and can be customised to meet any requirement and complement your existing interior design.



bespoke & unique design

Whether you want to tweak one of our existing models, or design a completely new bespoke Passenger Lift, we have the expertise to meet your needs and create the ideal solution.

With our ability to design and manufacture bespoke lifts, we are passionate about taking on new challenges to create the right vertical transportation solution for each individual situation including those with severe reduced pit and reduced headroom requirements. Whatever the space you have to work with, our tailor made production system can harmoniously fit any Passenger Lift to ensure smooth transportation of passengers. Vertibus has designed Passenger Lifts in scenarios where it seemed impossible to install one. 

Vertibus Passenger Lift cabins can be supplied in any bespoke shape, size and colour and are made out of very durable formica, stainless steel sheets or plastic laminated metal sheets bent especially to give the most possible strength. All the Passenger Lift cabins come standard with a full colour seven-inch TFT indicator inside the cabin and also a full indicator push button at each landing. Depending on the space available and the door clear opening required, one can opt for either manual swing doors or automatic sliding doors. The landing doors can be chosen in plastic laminated sheets, RAL coated metal sheets or various types of stainless steel sheets. Your own build can be customised and given a personal touch with a wide range of buttons and indicators to match your needs. The Vertibus Passenger Lift finishes can be customised according to your specifications so that it can blend seamlessly into the building and its surroundings.

In cases where there exists no space to build a stone / bricks lift shaft, these can be fit into our Vertibus Pre-Fabricated Hoist-ways / Steel Structures.


Comfort refers to the quality of the ride as well as the interaction between the lift, the building and the passengers.  

Due to excellent product design Vertibus Passenger Lifts provide a very comfortable and distinguished ride. Ride quality is also affected by the vibration, noise, acceleration, and deceleration of the system as well as the ability of parameter optimisation. Our lift cabins are designed to exceed customer requirements and expectations with various optional accessories such as additional handrails, tip-up seats, etc.. and also automatic fault reporting and autodialer self-test which are standard with Vertibus Passenger Lifts.


A common inquiry that we receive from potential customers is “What safety features are included in Vertibus Passenger Lifts?”

All Vertibus Passenger Lifts are equipped with a safety gear in case speed is attained, a full length infrared light curtain that detects movement of anyone or anything entering or exiting the cabin, interlocks that control whether or not a cabin can begin to travel, switches in the lift shaft detecting the lift position including a final limit switch, an automatic re-leveling device that maintains the cabin level with the landing to avoid tripping hazards, car door contact to prevent the lift from travelling unless the cabin is closed, protection buffers located in the pit, an emergency alarm button, an automatic telephone dialing system that performs auto-testing every 72 hours and reports back to the maintenance company via Vertibus Connect, an emergency battery that activates most of the safety features above upon loss of power including an emergency light inside the cabin, and also an emergency lowering device that automatically lowers the cabin to the nearest floor and open the doors for the passengers to get out of the lift in case of power failure. Other safety features are available and can be discussed.

Technology & Innovation

Innovation in design and manufacturing is a passion for Vertibus but so is technology. Vertibus has not only focused on the mechanical design but also on the design of the software and hardware of the electrical system.

Vertibus Passenger Lifts are available in both hydraulic and traction type, in various travel speeds, in single and three phase electrical supplies, in reduced pit and reduced headroom situations, in machine roomless situations, in manual or automatic doors, in advanced door opening, in CAN-BUS communication system and various other technologies as required. 

Vertibus Passenger Lifts are controlled by software specifically developed in house which not only ensures a smooth journey for the user but also enables us to tweak for specific customer requirements.  Vertibus Passenger Lifts are equipped with pre-wired CAN BUS electronic systems which provides expeditious message delivery and data to our indicator push buttons at each floor and our full colour seven-inch TFT indicator in the cabin, both offered as standard with Vertibus Passenger Lifts. 

This TFT indicator is GSM-Type and since it is wireless, it removes the possibility of a lift being damaged by lightning strikes through the telephone line.   But this is not the main objective of our TFT indicator. More importantly, it provides a means for our lifts to communicate with our server platform through Vertibus Connect.

By means of Vertibus Connect, the maintenance companies of Vertibus Passenger Lifts can monitor that the telephone system of the lifts which they installed is working properly, via the automatic self test which the auto-dialler does every 72 hours.

Furthermore, using this system a Vertibus Passenger Lift can report itself as out of order when a fault developes. This means that before the lift user reports the problem, the lift maintenance company can identify the area of the fault and is able to send the right technician with the right parts for the job. This is Vertibus Automatic Fault Reporting.

Our aim at all times is to create a feasible solution using optimised VERTIBUS TECHNOLOGY in the most affordable manner.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency and Safety are also of paramount importance to our designs as we strive to offer customers the best possible experience. For traction, we offer inverter controlled gearless machines that reduce energy consumption by half when compared to conventional geared machines. For Hydraulic lifts Vertibus offers either  an electronically controlled valve or an inverter which regulates hydraulic oil flow rates as needed for more efficient acceleration, travel and deceleration.


Efficiency in manufacturing is matched with very strict quality control policies in accordance with our ISO 9001: 2000 accreditation. This not only applies to the production of our lifts but also to the way we pack and ship lifts after full assembly and testing from our final loading base in Malta to customers across the globe.

Vertibus Passenger Lifts are aimed at providing a significant quality ride in terms of both vibration and noise.  The high quality mechanical and electronic parts, together with the high quality and detailed designs ensure that the overall quality of Vertibus Passenger Lifts exceed customers’ expectations.


Vertibus Passenger Lifts can be customised as fully accessible to all, with buttons and displays at the right height, a voice synthesiser, an infrared light curtain, induction loop and various other features.
