Customised goods lift matching corporate colour of Pink Hippo Self-Storage
In 2018, Lödige Industries has supplied a customised goods lift in bright pink for the new Pink Hippo self-storage building in Reading. The ESCORTA goods lift with attendant adds the wow factor in colour and comfort to the Pink Hippo self-storage facility in Reading, London.
About the project and building
The self-storage industry continues to grow in the UK. Following the success of their self-storage facility in Leatherhead, Pink Hippo has decided to open a new facility in Reading. To enable maximum storage opportunities, the new building offers spaces on two levels.
Pink Hippo realizing goods transport and matching corporate colour
The Pink Hippo storage facility provides self-storage spaces on two levels for several items that need to be stored temporary. Whether the scooter is to be stored over the winter, a longer stay abroad is planned or winter clothes need a place to “over-summer” – the self-storage market is evolving in the UK. To ensure that even bulky goods find a safe and reliable way into their storage boxes, a goods lift needed to be integrated. Most importantly, the customer Pink Hippo wanted the goods lift to match the bright pink colour theme of the self-storage facility.
Lödige Industries installed an ESCORTA goods lift with attendant. The lift is designed to carry up to 1,500 kg in storage items between two storage levels. The large capacity and brightly lit cabin of the lift removes the need for centre users to carry their goods through staircases. Traveling with the goods in the lift storing becomes much easier. Relying on an in-house paint shop, Lödige was able to perfectly match the corporate pink colouring and delivered its first goods lift pretty in pink.
