New build home gets a lift
Ability Lifts were recently contacted by the owner of a 3 storey, new house build in Pershore near Worcester, who was looking to future proof the house and ensure the occupants can easily access all three floors without using the stairs.
From the architect drawings provided, Ability Lifts suggested that their Optimum 500 home lift would be an ideal solution. It has very compact shaft dimensions of just 1150mm x 950mm, enabling it to fit discreetly within a home environment.
The client wanted the lift to blend into the colour scheme of their home, so the Anthracite Grey finish was chosen for the shaft colour, along with glazed panels down one side of the shaft to maximise light coming into the building. To give a clean look to the doors, a hidden closer was used. Alongside this, a stainless steel handle was fitted to the lift doors, to match with the fittings in the home.
The lift was installed over a 3 day period with very little building works by the client, as the lift is self supporting and a structural wall is not required. The lift requires just a 60mm pit, allowing level access into the lift at the lowest level. Due to the efficient 0.55KW motor of the lift, future energy bills will not be heavily affected.
A service contract was included with the lift, providing two service visits every year to ensure it runs smoothly, and to maintain the exceptional warranty on major parts.
The home owners are thrilled with the lift, and they can look forward to trouble-free lift service for many years to come.
