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

As more states open up across America and ease lockdown restrictions because of Covid-19 many people with reduced mobility will have become aware about the importance of having a fully-accessible home.

For older people or those with a disability, tackling the stairs on a daily basis can be an extremely challenging experience. With homeowners forced to spend longer in their houses due to the US lockdown, this has naturally meant the chances of a trip or fall in the home has increased.

The traditional stair lift has been around for a long time and is well known as a way of navigating those stairs. However, more and more people are turning to a different more modern, more practical and more stylish mobility solution such as a home elevator as a way of moving between floors.

Depending on their mobility issue, when a person uses a stair lift, they might need help from a husband, wife, partner, family member or friend getting on and off the device. But a home elevator enables that person, whether they need to use a walker or be in a wheelchair, to use the lift completely independently and unaided.

At Stiltz Home Elevators, for example, there are two types of main residential elevator offered, the Duo range of elevators, which can accommodate one or two people and the Trio series that are primarily designed for wheelchair users. The benefit of the larger lift is there is enough space for a carer too if needed.

Unlike conventional home elevators, which were powered by hydraulics or noisy vacuum systems and often needed a separate machine room, Stiltz home lifts run on a quiet self-contained motor system and plug straight into a regular 110 v or 220v power outlet.

Manufactured to a high standard, the range of residential elevators by Stiltz have been designed to look attractive in the home. Elevators of yesteryear tended to look more boxy and square-like but these lifts make a welcome addition to any property. With no load bearing walls required, the lift travels through the floor on self-supporting rails, and is quick and easy to install.

The Stiltz Home Elevators comply with the ASME A17.7 (a Standard recognized by ASME A17.1) and ASME A18.1 Vertical Lift Code, and include all the safety features expected from such a product. Unlike a stairlift, there are also no risks of trips or falls. Taking up less than six square foot of surface area, the residential elevators can be virtually anywhere in the home, and are simple and easy for the user to use.
