If you are considering a home elevator, one of the first questions will likely be, “How is an elevator installed in the home?” The answer is that the residential elevator installation process will depend greatly on the type of elevator that you choose for your home.
Home elevators and commercial lifts are often designed with hydraulic, winding drum, machine traction drive, or vacuum technology. Most traditional elevators require machine rooms and elevator motors, but pneumatic (vacuum) elevators usually do not require a machine room, pit, or hoistway. You’ll need to determine if your home can accommodate a machine room, as this will have a sizable influence on which type of elevator you choose.
Design and installation are tied together. The type and the design of your mobility system will determine the specifics of how the elevator is installed in your home. This is why choosing the location for the elevator in your home is the first step in the design process. Once the space and dimensions of the elevator have been determined, the design process will begin and provide a clearer picture of home elevator installation requirements.
Before we can install an elevator in a house, we’ll work with you to customize each detail of the lift that goes in your home. Artisan Elevators will work with you to find the best elevator style to complement your space and your tastes: Luxury elevator design is our specialty. Before we can install an elevator, in-house design experts at our company will take your preferences into account and consider the designated space set aside for your elevator as they begin drawing up plans and specifications for your elevator. We’ll then draw up sketches of your design, and once you approve of these, we’ll create a 3D model, giving you the chance to examine every aspect of your high-quality luxury elevator before our artisans create it.
