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:

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.

One of the biggest challenges to overcome when installing a regular home elevator is space. And not only space but making sure the space is in the right place.

Most residential elevators take up a lot more room than you would expect, and often require a separate machine room for controllers, hydraulics etc.

Even if you can find the space for the elevator, it is often not in the right place because the necessary structural wall is not available in that location.

A Stiltz home elevator lift takes up far less room and does not need a supporting wall. Therefore, your options are far greater in terms of placement.

This flexibility also allows you to get quite creative in terms of where you place your home lift and find locations that would not be possible with other residential elevators.

At Stiltz, one location we have often seen used is in the space we call a ‘stairwell void’.  This is the area that a spiral staircase, or one with several 90 degree turns, has running up through the middle of it.

There is not a lot that can be done with this space from a practical standpoint but is often the perfect position for one of our products in the Stiltz home elevator and wheelchair lift range to be fitted.

The Duo Elevator is probably the best option as it takes up less than seven square feet and only requires a space of around 41 inches wide by 29 inches deep.  It also has a rounded back which is the perfect shape for spiral staircases.

In this particular application you will not typically need to cut through the floor as the space will be open from ground floor to top ceiling. When you enter and exit the Stiltz home elevator from upstairs you will do so from the landing.

The landing will have a gate which will only open if the lift is at the top landing.  The moment the lift moves away from the landing the gate will automatically lock.

This is just one example of how you can get clever and creative in terms of where you can place one of our home lifts and where placing a traditional style home elevator would be difficult if not impossible.
