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

One of the fantastic benefits of choosing a Stiltz Home Elevator is that can it can take just one day to install and you can start using it straightaway.

This is because, unlike a traditional hydraulic home elevator, at Stiltz, we have manufactured a lift which needs very little time to fit in the home.

None of our range of home elevators, including the Stiltz Duo Home Elevator, Stiltz Trio Home Elevator and Stiltz Duo Alta Home Elevator, are hydraulically-powered, do not take up an abundance of space or require a separate machine room.

Our designers and engineers wanted to make the Stiltz elevator simple and easy to install so came up with a unique, more economical, way of powering the lifts – electricity.
Situated – out of sight – at the top of each home elevator is a self-contained motor which plugs straight into any normal power socket in any American home.

Another unique feature of the Stiltz selection of lifts is the fact they also do not need to be supported by load bearing walls or any other extra mechanisms which massively reduces the time it takes to install the elevator.

Hydraulic home elevators and traction home elevators usually require a pump or lift shaft in order for the lift to move between floors. With a Stiltz residential elevator, however, passengers are transferred from floor to floor on self-supporting rails or ‘stilts’.

Whilst it can take weeks to install a hydraulic or traction home elevator due to the amount of building work which is needed to be carried out, installing a Stiltz Home Elevator could not be simpler.

All a professional builder has to do is cut out a hole in the ceiling for the lift to pass through between floors and one of our Authorized Stiltz Home Elevator Dealers, which are based nationwide across the USA, will do the rest. The home elevator is delivered in modular sections making it easy to move under most doorways and ceilings before it is then pieced together. Our Stiltz dealer can also organize all the small amount of building work too.

For a typical installation, the team can have the residential elevator installed in a day which is especially useful, if there is an urgent need for it because the user can no longer safely use the stairs in the home. If the customer has purchased the lift to enhance their current lifestyle or ‘future proof’ for use for later life, they can also be rest assured that, with a Stiltz Home Elevator, there is no lengthy installation time and they can start enjoying the comfort of a ‘real’ lift in their home fast.
