Mensagem: 

The word "lift" has many definitions, including the device used to raise cars so that mechanics can work on them.  It's also used as an nautifcal term, mining term, etc.  It can even be a gate that must be lifted to gain access.

 

Quite possibly, your "guarded lift" is merely an elevator that is guarded (by guards). 

 

Without the context....
