Domestic House Lifts are a Growing Trend in the UK

At one time a home lift was the preserve of large country houses, but 21st century developments in technology are recasting the house elevator as both a pragmatic investment for older homeowners, and a ‘value-add’ for vendors wishing to differentiate a domestic property. At Tower Lifts we are noticing a growing demand for home installations across the UK.

Enquiries about home lifts are diverse, demonstrating that the technology is now affordable enough for it to be seen as a workable solution to a number of challenges homeowners face. The Tower Lifts design and installation team have created bespoke lifts for a number of contexts:

  • Planning for the Future – houseowners who are looking forward to enjoying their retirement in their own home are considering home lift installation as an investment to ensure ongoing access to all areas of their property as they grow older.
  • Bespoke Design for Disability – homeowners with limited mobility, or impaired vision find that they can now adapt their environment of choice, rather than consider moving to a new home that has already been adapted to accommodate their disabilty.
  • Visiting Access – a number of our clients install domestic house lifts in order to be able to offer full access to visitors to their home. This may be a family member, a close friend, or it may be a facility they wish to offer, should it be required.

Fitting a Domestic House Lift in London

We were recently delighted to be asked to fit a 3-stop passenger lift in a five storey house in London’s fashionable Eaton Square. Despite the size of this elegant town house, there was insufficient space available for the pit required by the EU Lifts Directive. An application to the Department Business, Innovation and Skills was made, and we were granted a derogation order, allowing us to install a lift with a reduced pit depth of 400mm.

Platform House Lifts

The growth of demand for domestic house lifts is largely predicated on the range of home lifts now available to houseeowners. If you are looking for a home lift that can be installed quickly, without requiring a lift shaft for the machinery, the platform lift may be the ideal solution. Platform lifts run on either an electric or hydraulic system, and utilise the latest technology to ensure optimum performance.

Tower Lifts work with homeowners to design beautiful, durable platform lifts that provide a bespoke solution for their home. We install curved or straight stair platform lifts, step lifts for ease of access over split level flooring, or short flights of steps, and vertical platform lifts for travel between floors. Each lift is designed to integrate tastefully with the house aesthetic.
