Following on from last month’s entry on our Lifts Blog where we described and uploaded images of what a Stiltz Home Lift could look like in your home from the upstairs, we thought it would be a good idea this month to go into more detail and show what it looks like from the downstairs.
Once again, we have used a recent lift installation we carried out in Surrey to help us answer this question. As you can see from Image A, this is a fine example of how a Stiltz through-floor lift can fit nice and snug in the corner of a living room, in this case, in this delightful Leatherhead home.
This is also shows the minimal amount of floor space a Stiltz lift takes up – it has the smallest footprint of any residential lift in the UK lifts market of just 0.62m2.
If you have a plotter computer printer and wish to print out a copy of the full size footprint document it fits easily on to one A0 sheet which measures 1m squared.
Looking back at Image A, we can see that no load bearing walls are required for a Stiltz lift as the lift uses a dual rail system. The rails, fitted on triangular plates, can be seen more clearly in isolation in Image B when the lift is upstairs and stationary. This is a completely self-supporting structure with the weight of it carried in compression through the rails into the floor of the home.
With no hydraulics or load bearing walls, as previously mentioned, it means Stiltz’s range of domestic lifts offer unrivalled flexibility and can be fitted almost anywhere in the home. It is very unlikely that you would not be able to have one of these lifts installed at your house.
We offer no obligation site surveys, demonstrations and quotations with the lead time for a Stiltz lift between 6-10 weeks. A standard installation can be completed in just one day and all building work can be managed by us or a supplier of your choice.
