The majority of residential properties in the UK were built during the early 20th century which means that they are small, poorly designed and ineffective for the elderly and disabled, who often find themselves confined to the ground floor of their own home like a prisoner. Luckily, home elevators have managed to take over the industry like never before. Read on as the team here at Elevators Ltd go over three reasons why domestic lifts are so popular…
Contrary to popular belief, a home elevator is one of the most affordable installations on the market. After all, they are much smaller than a traditional elevator and do not need to travel between many floors which means that the equipment is often smaller and easier to install. This contributes to the affordability of the product and is thought to be why they are such a popular investment for homeowners.
Since domestic properties are poorly designed with steep staircases and small hallways, navigating from room to room can be incredibly difficult for the elderly or wheelchair dependant. In fact, many people are forced to move at their own expense or live on the ground floor of their property. Luckily, a residential elevator can improve accessibility by providing a safe and reliable method of transportation between the different floors.
Although they look complicated, home elevators are actually one of the simplest designs on the market. After all, they are much smaller than a traditional passenger elevator which means that they are easier to install and take up a lot less room inside a home. As a result, much of their popularity is thought to be the by-product of this characteristic as it makes domestic lifts incredibly appealing.
Here at Elevators Ltd, we place a lot of emphasis on the installation of a home lift as we want to cause as little disruption as possible for our clients. Luckily, modern domestic elevators are virtually unrecognisable thanks to the accessibility revolution that they have undergone over the past few years. In addition to this, our team also carry out an extensive safety inspection after installation and all of our lifts come with an impressive 12-month service contract.
