Modern society has become so accustomed to the installation of the elevator that using the stairs has become a burden. In fact, finding out that an elevator is out of order is enough to kickstart a day of bad karma. Although stairs have been around for long than people can date in the history books, the team here at Elevators Ltd biasedly believe that they are the superior form of transport between the floors of a building. Read on to find out a few reasons why…

Disability Friendly

Not everybody is able to use the stairs with ease. After all, the elderly are susceptible to falls which can be incredibly dangerous and 12% of the general population suffer from debilitating medical conditions that have left them wheelchair bound and thus, reliant on elevators. In fact, providing accessibility is required under the Equality Act and an elevator is the most cost effective solution.

Saves Space

Although the machinery that is required for an elevator installation looks bulky, they actually save more space than people realise. After all, a staircase requires a good portion a property to be sacrificed however an elevator only requires enough space for the shaft and a machine room. This makes them an ideal installation for properties that don’t have a lot of room to work with.


If you are looking for an easy way to modernise your property then a home elevator may be just be the perfect solution. After all, the technology will outrank a staircase any day and can actually help increase the value of your home should you ever decide to sell up. In addition to this, elevators in public places can also be a scenic attraction thanks to the materials that are used to adorn the exterior, which can modernise even the most out dated properties.

After all, as the best lift company around it is our responsibility to advocate for our area of expertise.
