Do Your Elevators Fit Wheelchairs?

Yes, one of the reasons to consider installing a home elevator is because of the accessibility they provide. With a home elevator, individuals in wheelchairs can access every floor of their homes.

How Many Floors Can the Elevator Travel?

This answer depends on how tall each story of your home is and which drive system you select. Both the Elevette Cable Drum and the Elevette Hydraulic drive systems can travel 50 feet and stop at up to six landings Even if you have high 10-foot ceilings on every level of your home, elevators with these drive systems would still travel six stories. The Elevette MRL Overhead Cable Drum will travel 40 ft, but will still accommodate up to six landings.

How Much Space Will the Elevator Take Up?

Not all home elevators are one, standard size. This is one of the many aspects of your home elevator you can customize to an extent. Our cabs can be up to 15 square feet or more if allowed by code or can be smaller if you have space restrictions. A representative can help you prepare your home for an elevator. We’ll help you determine the appropriate dimensions for your home elevator to accommodate not only the cab but the elevator shaft as well.

How Much Weight Can the Elevator Hold?

Weight limits are important specifications to observe with your home elevator. Larger cab sizes can safely hold up to 1,000 lbs. A 500 lb capacity elevator can be no larger than 12 square feet.

What Happens if the Electricity Goes Out?

If your power goes out while you’re using your home elevator, there’s no reason to worry. You won’t become stuck or lose all your lighting. That’s because our home elevators include safety features such as backup lighting and backup battery power, which will kick in when your electricity fails. The elevator will automatically lower you safely to the bottom floor of your home.
