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

Mark Blomfield

President

Stiltz Home Elevators has been awarded Green America’s Green Business Certification.

We expanded our operations to the USA from the UK in 2013, manufactures some of the most space-efficient residential elevators in the world and can now proudly display the Green America Seal.

Green America is a national, not-for-profit organisation that was set up in 1982 and its Green Business Certification is a leading authentic trustmark for true green business practices.

Stiltz Home Elevators has been awarded the seal for excelling in social and environmental responsibility and meeting all the green business standards criteria. This includes providing evidence that the home elevator company is environmentally responsible in the way its sources, manufactures, and markets its elevator lifts and runs its operations and facilities.

The Stiltz range of residential elevators are compact but spacious which means they can be fitted into smaller eco-friendly homes as well as larger dwellings where space can still be at a premium.

The small size of the elevator lift – it takes up less than seven sq ft – means that significantly less materials are used in the manufacture of the home elevators than conventional ones. The elevators can, in most cases, be installed without the need of a lift shaft so no extensive remodelling of a house with the associated materials, is required. This further reduces the environmental footprint of the Stiltz elevator lift.

Stiltz home elevators, which includes a wheelchair elevator big enough to accommodate a standard-sized wheelchair, are also low on power consumption and very economical as they are run from a 220v outlet or 110v outlet with step-up transformer.

The Stiltz headquarters is based in Bethlehem, Philadelphia and its residential elevators are sold nationwide and all around the world.

Stiltz Home Elevators President of North American Operations, Mark Blomfield, said: “We are delighted to have earned the Green America Seal. It is part of our ethos at Stiltz to build environmentally-friendly and green elevators.

“We are proud that, thanks to its unique and innovative design, we produce home elevators that use far fewer materials and consume much less energy than conventional elevators.”
