Home Elevators Ensure Convenient and Independent Access for the Mobility Impaired
The percentage of Americans with mobility issues is on the rise. Besides loss of independence, disability issues make it difficult for people to move around their own multi-level homes. Once considered a luxury, home elevators are now a welcome addition in residential buildings as they ensure convenient and independent access for the mobility impaired.
Home Elevators – Fully Featured for Convenient Floor-to-floor Access
There are different types of residential elevators: winding drum, hydraulic, counterweight, vacuum and gearless. Each varies in cost, features and advantages, but they all ensure smooth and safe travel through the floors of your home. The type you choose would depend on the structure of your home, your budget, and accessibility requirements.
A hydraulic system with a remote machine room and submerged motor ensures quiet and smooth operation. If your home has a space constraint, you can choose a machine-roomless model. Pitless elevators can be set up in existing homes without costly modifications. There are even compact, gearless, green elevator systems that reduce energy consumption and save you up to 30% on your energy costs.
All home elevators feature user-friendly controls and several standard features such as non-skid platform, telephone, battery operated (UPS), emergency light and alarm, emergency stop switch, motorized braking, lockable control panel, elevator door interlocks, in-use indicator lights on hall station, slack chain brake system, and more.
Reliable Elevator Suppliers for the Right Solution
While ensuring convenient and independent access for the mobility impaired, home elevators lend style and elegance to your home. One of the best things about present-day elevators is that they come with many customization options. You can choose from different cab sizes, interior panels, hall stations and more to blend with your home style.
A reliable dealer of accessibility equipment would provide professional guidance and support for the custom installation of your system. Browse the Web and locate a supplier that stocks a wide range of accessibility devices from leading brands such as ThyssenKrupp Access, Savaria and Federal Elevator. That way you can choose from many options and find one that perfectly suits your needs and budget.
Always purchase your elevator from a dealer that offers professional support solutions including installation to meet necessary standards, on-call service, and efficient maintenance and repair by factory-trained technicians. See if your dealer can arrange for mandatory inspections and testing services. If you’re buying a device for your existing home, you can save costs if it is installed with the least structural modification. So make sure your dealer can do that for you.
