Homelifts aren’t just for old age

a brand best known for its stairlifts,

is breaking into the younger market with its new homelift business.

Traditionally homelifts of any kind have

been associated with old age and infirmity. But with customers now choosing Stannah’s Salise homelift for its design and versatility, the modern Stannah customer may simply be looking to enhance their home and make their life a little easier. Since its launch last year, Stannah sales consultants have seen an interest in the lifestyle lift for all sorts of reasons: to carry shopping, to help with a baby or toddler, to replace a dumbwaiter and even to reach a helicopter pad! With the cost of elevators reaching as much

as £65,000*, Stannah’s domestic version at less than a quarter of this makes the Salise good value for money. Users tend to live in a variety of style of home and are not in their 70s or 80s but rather in their 40s and 50s. They do not “need” a homelift but like the freedom one brings. These are

smart people future-proofing their homes. The lifestyle lift market is growing, with

many styles and variations available. A lifestyle lift isn’t a last resort but is rather the first choice for those who value the convenience that they bring. The Salise is fast becoming an object of

desire and can also open up property options as people who had restricted themselves to ground floor properties now have a wider choice. With installation taking just three

days, building work is simpler than you might think. The 4x3 feet lift, which can


carry two people, only requires an aperture in the ceiling of the same dimension. It does not need to be attached to the walls making the installation process much cleaner and no planning permission is required, although Stannah will manage the obligatory checks from building control. During consultations, Stannah engineers

are frequently asked about the possibility of a breakdown or getting stuck between floors. The lift only travels up almost three metres (the equivalent of one floor) thanks to hydraulic pressure. Gravity means that it simply floats down in a controlled and natural manner. And should there ever be a problem, there is a full battery back-up, a manual override on the inside, a manual override on the outside and a manual override for the doors. A phone can also be hardwired to the inside of the lift. And what

about the noise? The only noise a customer might hear is the soft hydraulics on ascent. On the way down it is virtually noiseless, surprising for a lift that advertises a safe working load of 250 kgs. With slick and

silent glass lifts like the Salise, customers of all ages are racing to buy the latest luxury home accessory; this one really is a sign of things to come. For more information call Stannah on
