Frequently Asked Questions
Domestic lifts come in a wide variety of sizes and configurations, from small incline and step lifts to spacious passenger lifts. Consequently, you should select the one that best suits your requirements; for instance, you wouldn’t select a passenger lift if all you needed was a little step lift.
Our team need to know not only why you need a lift, but also who it will be used by and how often. Your answers will help us choose the best elevator for your home. While independent research is useful, our specialists’ extensive background in lift design and installation makes them the best choice for providing individualised, qualified guidance.
The space required for a home lift is subject to various factors, including the type and design of the lift, the specifications, and any local building regulations.
- Shaft Size: The elevator shaft or enclosure should typically have dimensions of around 1.2 meters by 1.2 meters (approximately 4 feet by 4 feet) for a compact residential lift. This can vary depending on the size and design of the elevator.
- Headroom: A minimum headroom clearance of approximately 2.4 meters (about 8 feet) is recommended to allow for comfortable travel within the elevator car.
- Pit Depth: A pit depth of around 0.3 to 0.6 meters (1 to 2 feet) is common for residential lifts. The specific depth may vary based on the elevator’s design and specifications.
- Machine Room: Certain lifts may require a separate machine room to house the elevator’s motor and control equipment. The size of the machine room will depend on the elevator model and design.
- Door Clearances: There needs to be sufficient space for the elevator doors to open and close within the designated shaft area. The door size and type (sliding or swinging) will influence the required clearance.
- Accessibility: If the lift is designed for wheelchair accessibility, it will require additional space to accommodate a wheelchair and ensure that the lift complies with accessibility regulations.
It is important to determine how much room you have in your home for a lift, as this may vary depending on the kind and model you choose. As an example, traction lifts require an engine room to be placed overhead and often have heavier components, so they take up more area than a hydraulic equivalent. Platform lifts, on the other hand, tend to be smaller than passenger lifts since they are intended to transport fewer people over shorter distances.
The Disability Discrimination Act, the Equality Act, Part M of the Building Regulations, EN 81-1/2, EN 81-41, and the 2006/42/EC Machinery Directive are just a few of the laws that apply to elevator installations that Axess2 always complies with.
Before approving a project, we always conduct site surveys and risk analyses to guarantee safe installations. Then, to further ensure the safety of the procedure, we’ll instruct our design engineers to provide site-specific drawings that outline the building operations needed for that particular lift installation. No matter what your needs are, you can be confident that your home lift will be safe to use because our experts have experience working in a variety of diverse locations, sites, building styles, and working situations.
It’s crucial for many people that a lift complements the home’s aesthetics, furnishings, and layout, all of which might vary widely from one dwelling to the next. Our clients have the ability to personalise any model of lift that we install by selecting from a variety of options that relate to the equipment’s dimensions, materials, colours, and interior finishes.
The cost is a crucial and significant factor to take into consideration, and reaching an agreement on it is necessary before work can begin. The final cost will be determined by variables such as the kind of lift, its dimensions, and the amount of construction work that must precede its installation. Since they can frequently be simply installed onto a property, external elevators are generally less expensive than internal lifts, which may need more substantial renovation work.
An important factor to think about, as the installation of an elevator might make some areas of your home inaccessible for a while, depending on the model chosen and its final resting location. Installing certain home elevators might take weeks, while others can be set up in a matter of days. Getting an estimate of the installation timeframe in advance will give you time to make preparations in case it takes longer than expected.
