COVID 19 Statement

These are exceptional times. With Coronavirus – COVID-19 - we all face an unprecedented global challenge. The Stiltz Group continue to review activities on a daily basis to ensure we comply with safety directives at all times. At the same time, we look to balance this with providing the expected levels of service and support to our customers while being mindful of minimising risk for all concerned.

We are acutely aware that our customers tend to fall into higher risk categories, whether due to age, or as a result of pre-existing medical conditions. Therefore it is all the more important for our current and future customers to maintain their safety and independence at home with the help of their homelifts; this contributes towards the current policy of social distancing, especially important for seniors and those with compromised immune systems. Reduction of accidents within the home at this time will also help minimize the burden on the increasingly stressed healthcare system.

We are keen to ensure those who need new homelifts installed and those who require their lifts to be serviced, can expect these activities to take place without fear of risk to their health. There are multiple online resources that will guide you to assist in providing a safe workplace for your employees and help protect the customers whose home you visit. Two we would recommend are:

CDC - click here to visit
OSHA - click here to visit

We are in this together and are standing by to offer you as much support as possible during this challenging time. If you have any questions, concerns or doubts about anything, please contact your territory manager or the technical services team and we will do our best to assist.

Sincerely

Mark Blomfield

President

Spring is in the air and with it comes the feeling of fresh starts and new beginnings. As people shake off the winter and feel ready for something new, it makes sense that spring is also when the housing market starts to wake up. This is especially true for those who have seen their mobility decline over the winter months and are looking for a way to live more independently. However, there is evidence that this year it would be better not to rush into a house move, and that most people looking for accessible living would benefit more from staying where they are and upgrading their existing property.

Moving stress

Finding single story or accessible living accommodation with everything you need sounds great, but in reality, the right property can be hard to find especially within it in the right location near to friends and family. Also, moving home comes with a raft of stress factors, including dealing with buyer, sellers and realtors, negotiations, legal work and all the associated costs. Many people find that once they have secured their new home, the property still needs work to make it right for them.

The best solution

If mobility is a key factor in choosing to look for a new home, a Stiltz home elevator is the better option by far. Attractive, safe and convenient, modern home lifts are as practical as they are elegant. With a compact size and small footprint, Stiltz residential elevators can be fitted in a huge range of locations around the home and come in a range of sizes to suit customers’ needs.

Many homeowners are equally tempted to remodel their home, to equip it solely for first floor living. This can be costly, time consuming and stressful, with architect plans to be drawn up and approved, and the upheaval of building work within the home.

Also, single story living cuts off access to 50 per cent of the property whereas a Stiltz home elevator opens up the whole home to those who are finding the stairs difficult, quickly and easily travelling between floors. Installing a Stiltz elevator is not only cost effective, but it means the home can remain unchanged. A residential elevator is surprisingly fast and easy to install, taking installers just a day to build and fit the lift.

A domestic elevator can help to make the most of your property and provide the mobility support needed, without the stress and upheaval of the alternatives, and at a fraction of the cost of moving home.
