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:

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

Duo Classic Elevator Lift Case Study, PA, USA

When Leslie looked into a solution that would provide easier access to the upstairs of her home due to her medical condition, she initially had a stairlift installed.

However, it soon became apparent that this type of product did not suit her needs and was totally impractical. After carrying out some internet research and looking at alternatives, Leslie discovered, much to her amazement, that she could have a home elevator installed in her home in Chester County, Pennsylvania.

Due to the limited amount of space in her property, Leslie could not accommodate a hydraulic residential elevator, which also often require a separate machine room, but one that provided her with the flexibility to be able to install it almost anywhere in the home.

Instead, Leslie chose to have a home elevator, manufactured by Stiltz, because it was not only attractive but also practical with the smallest footprint of its kind in the USA – less than seven square feet – and it did not use hydraulics.

In fact, the range of Stiltz residential elevators plug straight into the wall using a normal 110v or 220v power outlet – just like any other household appliance. The elevator has a quiet, electric, self-contained motor, housed out of sight at the top of the home lift, so no noisy hydraulics or vacuum systems are required.

The home elevator travels on a unique twin rail system with no supporting walls or additional construction work needed. As the elevator lifts are made of modular sections, it took just one day for the Stiltz Duo Home Elevator to be installed in Leslie’s house.

Leslie had the elevator lift installed in a hallway that backed on to her garage. She hired a builder to use the extra space in the garage to build a lift shaft that went up into a storage floor on the second floor, leaving plenty of room remaining for her to park the car.

Leslie said: “I purchased a stairlift but it was not functional at all due to my medical condition. I purchased the Stiltz Home Elevator because it met my needs and it had a small footprint that worked perfectly with the limited space I had available in my home.

“I was familiar with a more commercial type elevator for home use as larger properties in my neighbourhood have them installed.  I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to find a space in my house with minimal construction to install my lift.

“I have been very happy with the Stiltz elevator.  It has allowed me to access my second floor living space as well as my storage room, providing me with a sense of independence I did not have before.

“I like the small footprint and simple, sleek design.  It blends in well in my hallway where it is installed and it is easy to use.  I’d 100 per cent recommend the lift to others and have overall been very pleased with my experience.”

I have been very happy with my Stiltz Home Elevator.  It has provided me with a sense of independence I did not have before. Leslie
