The Benefits of Installing a Home Lift

Installing a home lift isn’t just about practicalities; it’s also a decision to enhance your lifestyle in the following ways:

  • Convenience. Home lifts transform the way you move about your home. Say goodbye to struggling with bulky items up and down staircases. Home lifts eliminate the physical strain, offering a relaxing way to move between floors. The time and energy your lift saves you, can then be used on the things that matter most in your life.
  • Sophistication. Beyond their convenience, home lifts add a touch of elegance to your home. Carefully designed to clients’ specifications, home lifts can blend seamlessly with your interior décor, or create a focal point for your living space. Blending form and function, home lifts celebrate contemporary life and a commitment to wellbeing.
  • Property Value. A home lift isn’t just a commitment to convenience and style; it’s also a strategic investment that can enhance the value of your property. In a competitive property market, a home lift sets your property apart, attracting potential buyers who recognise the unique advantages it offers.

Types of Home Lifts to Choose From

There a 4 main types of lifts for home use. Tower Lifts designers are happy to talk through the different models with clients, and offer guidance and advice where appropriate:

1. Hydraulic Home Lifts

Hydraulic home lifts use a hydraulic piston system to move the lift cabin. These lifts are known for their smooth and quiet operation, making them an excellent choice for homes. They are also energy-efficient and require minimal maintenance.

2. Traction Home Lifts

Traction home lifts use steel ropes or belts to move the lift cabin. They are highly efficient and can carry heavier loads compared to hydraulic lifts. These lifts are a great option for homes with higher volume requirements and the need for increased capacity.

3. Pneumatic Home Lifts

Pneumatic home lifts, also known as vacuum lifts, operate by using air pressure to move the lift cabin. These lifts have a unique cylindrical design and offer a panoramic view as they move between floors. They are ideal for homes with limited space and require minimal construction.

4. Screw-Driven Home Lifts

Screw-driven home lifts use a threaded rod to move the lift car. They are known for their stability and ability to lift heavy loads. These lifts are popular for use in homes as they have a very small footprint and can be installed without the need for a deep pit.

Home Lifts Customisation Options

Tower Lift designers create state-of-the-art home lifts that are unique to your home. Once clients have chosen the specific types of lifts for home use, there are numerous ways that they can be customised to reflect their style, personality, and unique aesthetic.

  • Immersive LED Ambiance. With the ability to control and adjust your home lift lighting, you have the power to curate the perfect mood for every ride.
  • Vivid RAL Colour Palette. Infuse your lift with your personal style by selecting from the complete spectrum of RAL colours for its finish.
  • Elegant Lift Finishes. Tailor the look and tactile experience of your lift to match your vision. Choose from an array of lift finishes, including the warmth of wood, the modern elegance of glass, or the luxurious touch of textiles.
  • Musical Voyage. Select your preferred tunes or playlists to accompany you as you traverse between floors. The ability to curate your own musical backdrop adds an extra layer of sensory pleasure to every ride.
  • Intuitive Controls. Whether it’s a sleek touchscreen panel, ergonomic push-button controls, or even smartphone integration, these user-friendly systems ensure that operating the lift is a simple and enjoyable process for everyone.
