Stiltz Home Lifts has extended the distance its latest range of domestic lifts can travel by half a metre to a maximum of 4.5 metres.
The manufacturer has rolled out the product update, which meets the BS EN 81-41 European standard for lifts traveling over three metres, to the Stiltz Duo+ Home Lift and Stiltz Trio+ Home Lift models.
The longer travel option means the Stiltz domestic lifts can be installed in even more varied types of property, such as period buildings or homes with high ceilings.
In order for the lift to travel an extra 50cms, Stiltz Home Lifts increased the size of the drum, while the modular, self-supporting rails can be customised to fit the size requirements of any ceiling.
Gino Farruggio, UK Trade Sales Director for Stiltz Home Lifts, said: “We’re delighted to have expanded the capabilities of our home lifts as it means we can now offer our customers an even greater number of installation options.
“Our research and development team in Kingswinford have worked hard on extending the travel distance of our lifts following feedback from our distributors in countries like France and Germany, where properties tend to have higher ceilings than in the UK. The new 4.5m travel option means we can provide a unique solution to customers with higher ceilings who have an immediate need for a home lift.”
As part of continuous investment in product development, Stiltz Home Lifts has also upgraded its Classic and Vista models with a new control panel which brings them in line with the Duo+ and Trio+ models.
