Optique 2000 is an opticians in Wimborne, offering high quality glasses for customers all over Dorset. Due to increased demand for their glasses Optique needed to look to expand their business, they had 2 options, they either had to move to larger premises or look to expand the current site to maximise the retail space. They had a stock room upstairs but access was difficult so they couldn't turn it into a sales floor without making it easier for customers and staff alike to get up there. A simple shop lift was the best option to increase their sales floor.
They chose to install a Vector system, a lift that comes in its own aluminium shaft, it also only needs a 50mm pit below the floor level. This means that there is little builder's work with minimal cost. The lift fitted had dimensions of 1400mm x 1100mm with automatic doors on both floors. The shop lift was finished in gloss white with glazed glass doors to give the lift a spacious and airy feel in what was a small space. The lift was fitted in 2 days and has led to Optique doubling their retail space without having to move from their current in location in the heart of Wimborne.
