Custom Home Elevators From Artisan Elevators

While you might often encounter elevators in a city high-rise or a hotel, in recent decades, more and more homeowners have sought to install an elevator in-house. But what do you do when you want an elevator to match the inside of your home? The simple solution is a custom home lift that can blend well with and elevate the look of your home. Working with our custom home elevator and lift company’s skilled mechanics and crafters, you can design an elevator for home installation that’s exactly like you envision.

What Type of Home Elevator Will You Choose?

The first part of designing a custom elevator is deciding which operating mechanism is the right choice for your home. Some in-home elevator systems are designed with extreme-case-scenario safety in mind, such as earthquakes or tornadoes, while others are created to use a minimal amount of space. For the former, hydraulic elevators give the best protection in case of natural disasters, since these elevators in houses affected by power outages can be manually lowered down the hoistway. A hydraulic elevator needs a machine room to operate, however, and this will require additional space as well as installation time.

Other luxury home elevators operate from above with either a winding drum or machine traction drive mechanism. These have a cab that is suspended in the hoistway and moves between floors by means of a counterweight or rail-like mechanism. These types of in-home elevators require less energy for service.

A pneumatic elevator is another option for small home elevators. Pneumatic elevators move the cab between floors with a vacuum suction mechanism. These are the narrowest elevators for homes, requiring very little space and the least installation time. All three of these home elevator options need no machine room.
