Where can I put a Stiltz Home Lift?
Does a Stiltz Home Lift require any extra external mechanisms? (Or the clever bit as to why it takes up so little room!)
No. A Stiltz Home Lift uses a roped drum braked gear motor drive system. This entire drive system is neatly self-contained within the lift car itself. Unlike other lifts, all of the mechanics are in one place, hidden from view.

What makes a Stiltz Home Lift safe?
Top and bottom safety pans: When the lift is moving, two safety pans are always working to make sure nothing is obstructing the lift as it travels. These are located above the Home Lift and below it. So if a pet or an object was to obstruct the lift as it travels, the lift will simply stop and only move in the direction away from the obstruction. Full height light curtain (half door option lift): The full height light curtain is located at the entrance to the lift. This acts as a sensor and ensures nothing crosses into or out of the lift as it travels. This prevents any dangers to passengers in the lift and also people outside the lift. In the event the light curtain is crossed, the lift will stop and will not move until the obstruction is removed. Hold-to-run press button controls: The Stiltz Lift is fitted with hold to run press button controls ensuring that the occupants are in total control of the lift moving at all times. This also creates a point of contact with the lift during travel and ensures the safety of the occupants. Swing Door: The home lift is fitted with a self-closing, hinged door (this comes in both half height and full height varieties) that provides a physical barrier during the operation of the lift. The door locks will release when the lift arrives safely at the floor of choice. Weight limit sensors: If the weight limits of the Duo or Trio are ever exceeded, the weight limit sensors will not allow the lift to travel. Out of balance sensors: If the lift for whatever reason is ever out of balance, a number of sensors will detect this and also prevent the lift from travelling. This is to ensure the safe working of the lift for all occupants. Fall arrest mechanism: Due to the Stiltz Home Lift unique drive system, all the weight in the lift is carried on two very strong steel cables. In the unlikely event that these cables were to break or go slack, the patented fall arrest mechanism inside the lift will activate and not allow the lift to move. This ensures the absolute safety of all occupants at all times.
