Lift Gate Assistant for Pass-Through Countertops
Improving Hospitality Design with Motion Control Engineering
When you walk into a fancy bar, what do you notice? Is it the lighting or the seating? Your eyes are probably drawn directly to the bar itself, which is often designed to be the focal point of restaurants and pubs.
The Lift Gate Assistant can make your bar both functional and fancy with a flip-up bar counter. Save your employees the hassle of wrestling with a heavy countertop and leave a lasting impression on your customers.
Using motion control engineering and Vectis Technology, the Lift Gate Assistant makes lifting heavy tables or counters easy, safe, and convenient.

Flip-up countertops and other counterbalanced hinge solutions offer multiple advantages for hospitality spaces and other business applications.
A hinged countertop has long been a staple of many room designs, like bars and restaurant kitchens. But modern engineering offers major improvements on standard bar flap hinges and other countertop pass-throughs.
In today's hospitality world, bigger isn't always better. Yes, hotel room design is changing -- all you need to do is observe the capsule hotel trend. It's popping up throughout the world, but it’s just one way designers are maximizing space while still creating a unique customer experience.
If you want to design a product with a heavy lid or door, it’s useful to research how engineers have solved similar problems with other products.
You don’t have to look far to find examples. Grill lids, car trunks, tanning beds, deli display cases, and many more products use counterbalance hinges for pivoting loads. If you need heavy-duty lid support, chances are, counterbalancing is the way to go.
