Here are a few key differences between a home lift and a commercial lift…


One of the most apparent differences between the two is the size of home lifts in comparison to commercial lifts. After all, the former is made in order to comfortably fit inside a residential property which means that they cannot take up too much room or else they will become a burden rather than a blessing. In comparison, commercial lifts are made for shopping centres so they tend to be much bigger.


Usually related to the size, it is not uncommon for a commercial lift to be more expensive than a home lift. After all, the latter tends to be made with hydraulics which removes the need for a machine room and therefore saves space inside the property and reduces the installation fee considerably.


Commercial lifts are installed in many different locations including but not limited to shopping centres, hotels and offices which means that they often travel between two and twenty floors so they have to be incredibly sturdy. On the other hand, a home lift will travel a maximum of two floors depending on how many stories a property has.

Being able to understand how a home lift differs from a commercial lift is incredibly important. After all, there are many ways that the home lift has been adapted for residential use in order to make them suitable for accessing the different floors within your home easier.
