Residential elevators - selecting the right model
Installing a residential elevator in your home helps solve the accessibility problems of the physically challenged and elderly family members. It allows them a great deal of independence when it comes to accessing the upper floors. Besides providing safe and comfortable access to different levels of your home, sturdy home elevators facilitate the easy transportation of heavy goods such as laundry, furniture, and groceries from floor to floor. There are many types of residential elevators in the market. Whether you are home owner or a builder, it is important that you select the right model.
How to choose the right elevator model
Selecting the right home elevator model is easy once you are aware about the major aspects to look for. This article offers some pointers to help you choose a home elevator model that will meet your requirements.
Residential elevators are available in a variety of configurations, cabin sizes, innovative
features, wall panel finishes and stylish designs. Due to the increase in demand for home elevators, many manufacturers have entered into the business. But don’t purchase just any elevator. Always go for a product manufactured by a leading company. Elevator manufacturers like ThyssenKrupp Access, Savaria and Federal Elevator are the pioneers in the industry that deliver the best quality home elevators. So look for branded models while buying an elevator system for home. Only a branded home elevator system can ensure maximum safety and it does not require frequent maintenance.
Also, ensure that the residential elevator system you've selected are user-friendly and safe and come with high-end features such as non-skid platform, under-panel obstruction sensor, lockable control panel, door interlocks, emergency stop and alarm buttons, slack chain brake system, telephone system, open door sensor, and more.
In order to ensure consistent performance and durability, it is very important to evaluate the technology, specifications and configuration of residential elevators. Check the loading capacity of the different models since the elevators with excellent load capacity can accommodate not only people but also heavy items. Always consider the cabin size of the various models as it will give you an idea about the available space and whether it is sufficient to meet your needs.
The number of travel stops offered varies from model to model. Try to choose a residential elevator that can provide access to all the floors of your home.
Ensure that the residential elevator you choose comes with proper warranty. Determine the electrical power consumption as the power requirement varies from model to model. While buying an elevator, ensure that your home electrical system matches the power requirements of the elevator. If power outages are frequent, a battery-powered option is ideal.
Don’t forget to consider your budget before finalizing a model. Cost is one of the most important factors to be considered while buying residential elevators. Cost varies depending upon type, size, style, and custom options selected by the buyer. So compare the cost of different models.
Going by these tips is easier when you have professional guidance from experienced elevator suppliers. So find a reliable supplier to select the right elevator model for your home.
