Multi-level Home Lifts for Period Town Houses

A typical regency or georgian town house might have a minimum of 4 floors/ storeys including a basement. There are many scenarios where due to the large number of stairs in such properties it might become desirable to install a lift/ elevator in order to create a safer and more convenient home for the householders. The installation of a suitable lift could be desirable for various reasons-

A lift could provide:

  • A safer and more convenient option for older persons who might be unsteady on their feet and have difficulty in negotiating stairs safely.
  • Enable wheelchair users and people with certain medical conditions or disabilities access to all the various floors in the property.
  • Help with the demands of daily modern living by transporting groceries, household goods, buggies, prams, cases of wine or boxes of heavy paperwork up or down to a study or home office.
  • Easy access for members of the household and their guests to and from various floor levels throughout the building via a passenger lift.

The type of lift (hydraulic or traction) for a particular property will depend upon various factors such as: the number of floors the lift will need to serve, the available dimensions within the building for the mechanical and operational components of the lift, the desired performance requirements for the lift such as: rate of travel (speed) and load capacity (weight limit).

Obviously, there are other matters to also consider when choosing a lift; including the actual design of the lift car including wall & ceiling finish options, lighting, lift door configuration (layout), type of lift door, keypad security access and other technical choices.

The overall cost of the lift can vary significantly depending on certain choices made regarding the actual type of lift selected and then the various design options that are chosen.

What is an Invisible Step Lift?

Invisible step lifts are usually low rise transfer lifts designed to provide disabled access for wheelchair users up and down steps either inside a building or externally. Some models of low rise transfer lifts travel just vertically (up and down) whilst other models can travel vertically and then on reaching the desired travel height the top platform that the wheelchair stands on slides out horizontally bridging the gap between the steps and the floor.

The  “Invisible Step Lift by Oyster Mayfair” comes in three models, two vertical travel options and also the combined vertical and horizontal travel model. Probably the quickest and easiest way to understand this product is to watch the video of this low rise transfer lift in action which is available to view on “The Invisible Step Lift by Oyster Mayfair” page on this website.
