THE ONLY WAY IS UP WITH THE NEW LUXURY HOME LIFT THAT IS DESIGNED NOT TO BE SEEN – BY LACHLAN FAULKNER.
Lachlan Faulkner, from Stiltz Lifts, has written the latest piece for the blog about the totally unique luxury home lift from Stiltz that requires no load bearing walls, does not use hydraulics and has been designed to blend into your home without any fuss.
Stylish and sophisticated, the Vista Lift can be a wonderful addition to any home. Buying a lift for your home may have been unheard of once but they have massively grown in popularity over the last few years. Commonly purchased
by elderly people when the stairs become too much, a domestic lift has become an ideal alternative to the age old stairlift that can sometimes be unreliable and unattractive.
The rise of the home lift also offers a solution to people with mobility problems as it means they can move around their own home independently and without assistance. However lifts for houses are also proving attractive for people who like the finer things in life.
A recent example of this is the new luxury Vista Home Lift from Australian company Stiltz Lifts that is unlike any other home lift on the market. Totally unique and the first of its kind to be available in the UK – and worldwide - the Stiltz Vista Lift does not require load bearing walls or use hydraulics.Instead it uses an intelligent dual rail – or stilts - system that creates a completely self-supporting structure. This means that no extra weight burden is added is on the home. The weight of the self-supporting structure and lift car is carried in compression through the rails into the floor of the home.
While conventional lifts are loud and noisy because the lifts use hydraulics and mechanical equipment, the Vista is very quiet because it is powered by a roped drum-braked gear electric motor system with no extra external mechanisms required.
The domestic lift uses single-phase power and draws between two and three amps and there is no other hard wiring or additional power packs needed to power the elevator. The Vista simply plugs into any normal 13-amp power socket like any other household appliance such as the kettle, toaster or
microwave for example.
What makes the Vista Lift really special is it is also made of polycarbonate and has been designed to blend into any room or décor without a trace. This means it causes minimal disruption as it can just dissolve into the furnishings as if the lift was not even there. Due to its ‘clear’ nature, the Vista lift can
bring natural light into a room and is perfect for installing in front of an existing window.
The Vista is modern, minimalist and sophisticated for people looking to make a luxury addition to their homes. The lifts can only be fitted through one floor but can be installed around the home if required. They also boast the smallest footprint of any home lift on the market and can also add value to a property.
The Vista is ideal for a stairwell void application as due to unique shape it can fit perfectly in an alcove of the stairs. In fact, it can be fitted virtually anywhere in the home. No other through-floor lift on the market can offer a solution that
uses the dead space in the void to fit a home lift in this way.
With lots of clever safety features including top and bottom safety pans and weight sensors, the Vista Lift even has internal LED down lights, an interior seat, half-height swing door and two remote controls to call the lift from any floor. You can even choose your own colour and interior lining! With the Vista Lift, the only way really is up!
