Why Choose a Residential Lift?
A choice of models
Whatever your lifting needs, we offer a wide range of standard and bespoke lifts. Also available for residential homes with low headroom configurations.
Quick, Simple Installation
Our residential lifts operate within a rapidly-erected, structure supported frame which is easy to install and requires minimal builders' work.
Choice of Finishes
The finish of the lift car and rise and fall shutters can be a tough painted finish or stainless steel.
Key Features of a Residential Lift (Microlift)
What car styles are available for the Microlift?
Constructed in mild steel, finished in grey baked enamel with a stainless steel base and a removable stainless steel shelf. The car can also be finished in stainless steel.
What landing entrance options are available for the Microlift?
High quality rise and fall shutters or hinged doors are fitted with safety locks and can be finished in either grey baked enamel or stainless steel.
Is it essential to have Car Entrance Protection on a Microlift?
Whilst it is not essential to fit doors onto the car itself, it is highly recommended to do so. If doors are not fitted, other means of restraining the goods should be assessed and provided. Stainless steel rise and fall doors are available for all models, whilst collapsible gates are available on all models serving at floor level as an option.
What kind of mounting is provided for the Microlift?
The lift is supplied in a structure-supported frame which is galvanised for longer life. We do not require a separate motor room or ‘load-bearing’ lift shaft. For more information, please ask for our builder’s work detail.
How many floors can the Microlift travel?
The Microlift can serve up to 12 floors.
What speed does the Microlift travel at?
The Microlift can travel up to 0.35m/s (70ft/min).
Residential Lift Controls
Fully automatic push button control, with call and despatch facilities at each entrance. For that extra reassurance, ‘lift arrival’, ‘lift occupied’ and ‘lift position indicators’ together with an ‘arrival buzzer’ are fitted as standard.
Residential Lift Operation
The operation is smooth and quiet with a highly efficient motor winding unit with a reliable controller. Combined with a counter-balance drive system, this ensures electrical consumption is minimal.
Residential Lift Winding Unit
Normally mounted at the top of the lift structure within the headroom dimensions shown overleaf. The motor drives a high quality reduction gearbox fitted with a traction vee-sheave. An electro-magnetic disc brake is supplied, with emergency release mechanism.
Residential Lift Electric Supply
415 Volt-3 phase-50Hz or 240 Volt-1 phase-50Hz. A 15 amp isolator should be supplied for the lift by your electrician to be fixed adjacent to the lift at the top floor served for top drive units or lowest floor for bottom drive units.
Residential Lift Installation
A 2-floor lift normally takes us 1-2 days to install depending on site conditions. The enclosure is to be completed by your chosen building company.
Residential Lift Maintenance
We recommend the lift is serviced and inspected a minimum of every 6 months by competent lift engineers. This is to ensure efficient and reliable operation. We can arrange servicing after installation.
The lift is guaranteed for twelve months from completion of installation, subject to it being serviced regularly by our engineers.
Once installed, tested, commissioned and all the building work is complete, the lift will comply with the Essential Safety Regulations (ESRs) of the latest Supply of Machinery (Safety) Requirements, otherwise known as the Machinery Directive and EN81-3 where applicable.
