Stiltz Lifts set up in the country a few years ago and their products are typically used as an ideal alternative to a stairlift for elderly folk.
But already their innovative home elevator, which has been designed solely for residential use, is becoming an increasingly popular mobility solution for wheelchair users.
Unlike a traditional residential elevator, the Stiltz Home Elevator does not use hydraulic equipment and plugs straight into a regular 110v or 220v power socket. It is powered by a small electric motor that sits, out of sight, at the top of the lift.
The home elevator travels on a clever twin rail system, which make the entire structure self-supporting so no exterior walls are required.
This technology allows the Stiltz Home Elevator to be installed ‘almost’ anywhere in a two-story home.
After launching the Stiltz Duo first, next came the bigger, wider and heavy version of the same lift, the Stiltz Trio wheelchair lift. It covers 13.5sf surface area compared to the 7sf Duo but is still compact.
The residential elevators have been designed in Europe and are made up of modular sections so it makes it easy for installers to fit them in the home. There is no major construction work needed and a standard application can take just one day.
Also available in the UK, a gentleman with multiple sclerosis recently had a Trio wheelchair lift installed in his home, while another family used it for their four-year daughter who had a rare neurological skin disorder.
Both the Duo and Trio include a remote control to call the lift from any floor, a battery back-up, full height light curtain, full or half height doors and obstruction sensors. Stiltz also cover the roof of the lift with the original flooring so when the lift is downstairs it does not intrude upstairs.
Most importantly, this type of wheelchair lift gives the wheelchair user the freedom to be able to move around their home independently.
