Stiltz

A Freestanding, self-contained elevator that can be positioned almost anywhere in a home due to its self-supporting rails.  There is no visible hoist or any noisy motor. The unique technology uses a discreet wire rope hoist and built-in drive equipment.

The lift plugs into a standard power outlet and a battery pack will gently return the lift to the lower floor in the event of a power outage. The operation can be from the control inside the cab or from the standard remote controls.  Various models & sizes are available.

It is possible to install an elevator in an existing home, but naturally it is easier when building a new home. Installation of a home elevator can take several days, depending on the specifics of your project. The installer will make sure that safety and electrical requirements are met for your specific model and local building requirements. Depending on where you live, your elevator may require inspection by local authorities before you can use it. The installation costs of an elevator are low compared to the cost of the elevator equipment. Installation is of paramount importance when it comes to ensuring safety and performance.

Full size elevators for new construction can start as low as $20,000. Highly customized models can range from $30,000 – $50,000. Standard installation is generally included in those costs.
Specialty elevators for remodeling or retrofit applications are available, can cost less, and have less required construction. They also have some limitations such as smaller cab sizes and lower capacity ratings.
Installation time can vary from three to five days for a standard elevator.
A standard residential elevator will need at least 20 square feet of floor space for the hoist-way.
By building code, an elevator can be a maximum of 15 square feet inside the cab
Regular service/maintenance will be required to uphold the warranty and avoid larger repairs
