Sunkid offers not only Moving Carpets, but also four different small ski lifts that stand out with their many special technical features.

The Sunkid lift construction kit system permits combination of more than 80 (!) different types, positioning Sunkid as the perfect full-service provider for innovative logistics solutions up to a length of approx. 350 m and gradients of up to 40%.
