Elevator for Home


Need an Elevator for Your Home?

If you have impaired mobility, or you’re a wheelchair user and you live in a home with stairs, you most probably need an elevator for your home. Having vertical transport between the floors of your house gives you independence in your home, and peace-of-mind concerning the future.

Tower Lifts has been installing vertical transport in residential environments for nearly two decades. We care about high-quality access in homes because we’ve seen first-hand how much it can change lives for the better. In this blog, we outline 4 steps for successful home lift installation.

1. Which Home Lift is Best for You?

The Research Institute for Disabled Consumers suggests that you might want to take advice from an Occupational Therapist. A professional OT can to carry our an assessment of your home and offer expert guidance on which products will suit you best. It’s possible to book an OT appointment through the NHS, or contact DLF which offers advice on living independently.

2. Take Expert Advice on Vertical Transport Products

There are plenty of UK lift designers and installers who would be happy to talk through the range of products available. Tower Lifts designers are able to come to your home and assess your living space with an eye to installation. Our engineers will talk about the relative merits of a range of different options until we find one that would suit your living requirements and your budget.

3. Think About Future-Proofing Your Home

Many of our clients ask whether a stair-lift is a viable alternative to a wheelchair home lift. In response we always recommend that clients think of their investment as solving tomorrow’s problems, rather than today’s. A stair lift may be adequate for now, but will it always offer you the access you need? At Tower Lifts we’ll offer you recommendations on solutions that will provide access solutions for the foreseeable future.

4. Maintenance, Repairs and Safety

When installing a home lift you need to know that it adheres to the highest standards of passenger safety. Tower Lifts also recommends that clients have tailored maintenance contracts to ensure ongoing safety and high performance from your lift. This includes a 24/7 emergency repair service, so that you will never have to be without your home lift for any length of time.


Types of Elevator for Your Home

We are specialist providers of bespoke lifts for the home. This means that we’ll create the very best solution for individual clients, rather than offering a standard solution that doesn’t do exactly what is required. All our lifts take into account the style of your home décor, and can be customised to seamlessly match your interiors. Our bespoke solutions include:

  • Vertical Platform Lift. This innovative technology provides a flexible solution for homes without space for a lift shaft. It looks like a traditional lift, is designed to accommodate wheelchair users and can be customised to your taste.
  • Small Lifts for Homes. We don’t only install lifts in large houses! We can now design lifts that adapt to your home environment without overwhelming your living space. These are simple to install and installation won’t disrupt your household for more than a few days.
  • Wheelchair Home Lift. If you have a flat with split level flooring, or a front entrance comprising a short flight of steps, a wheelchair home lift is the ideal solution. We regularly create ‘invisible’ step lifts that appear only when activated.
