Indiana Residential Elevator, offers all types of home elevators with
various designs and performance. To explain their
differences, it is best that we group them into four different types:
These are in home elevators that are a two
stop, two floor type. They are usually a home elevator cost reduction since
there is no need for a shaft which reduces cost. The elevator cab rides on a
track on a load bearing wall. The top of the elevator cab picks up the floor as it
travels up between the two levels of the home. No pit is required.
This type of residential elevator is like a porch lift that is
enclosed in shaft. The shaft can be dry wall with doors, plexiglass or metal
enclosure. A pit is required or permanent ramp for access to lift at bottom. Two, three or four stops available. This type of lift will
floor home with perhaps a third exit to a garage or outside door. Doors will not
open unless lift is at door level.
Three Home Elevators Similar to Group One. Drywall enclosure required. Doors
are wired to elevator and will not open unless elevator is at level.
Vacuum Elevator. No special works are required with a unique
self-supporting structure. No pit excavation or engine room needed. Ideal for
recycled houses due to the little space needed in the building. Vacuum elevators
can rest on any existent floor. It is not a fixed installation, and can be
disassembled and transported. Absolute safety in case of an electric power cut
since the descending car automatically stops on the immediate floor. Panoramic
view allows a 360º visibility, without cables or pistons that block vision. -No
lubrication is required and maintenance is minimum. Solves technical
difficulties that other home elevators may have.
