How Much Space Does A Lift Take Up?
The space needed for a home lift depends on the type of lift you need. However, technological advancements have allowed home lifts to be designed more and more compact, to the point where some lifts will only take up the same amount of floorspace as a large armchair.
Alternatively, for homes with limited space, lifts can be installed externally so as not to take up any floor space in your home.
How Many People Can Fit In A Home Lift?
Axis Lifts offers a range of residential lifts including both compact lifts and spacious lifts. We offer compact lifts with platforms as small as 580 x 805mm – ideal for use where space is limited. However, we also supply and install larger lifts to accommodate wheelchair users or up to 5 passengers at a time.
Are Home Lifts Easy To Use?
Yes. Each home lift we supply is designed with ease-of-use in mind. Our home access solutions each come with intuitive operating panels or controls to make accessibility simple. Check individual product pages for more information.
How Often Does A Home Lift Need To Be Serviced?
It is generally recommended that home lifts should be serviced at least once a year. Ensure tht any maintenance on your home lift is carried out by a qualified professional in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Do Home Lifts Come With A Warranty?
Every lift we install comes with a standard 12 month warranty including two visits from a member of our qualified service team to ensure that everything is running smoothly.
Lift manufacturer’s will typically also provide their own warranty. Check with the individual manufacturer for more details.
What Happens In A Power Outage?
All lifts are built with emergency safety features to ensure the safety of passengers in the event of a power failure.
Each lift supplied by Axis Lifts has a backup emergency lowering feature to ensure that occupants are able to safely exit the lift if the power cuts out. Additionally, each lift must legally have an emergency communications system allowing you to contact a qualified lift technician in the event of a power outage.
Axis Lifts has a 24/7 service response team so you can rest assured that we will be able to provide you with expert over the phone troubleshooting and advice whenever you need it.
What Happens If The Lift Stops Working (While In Use)?
Modern home lifts are built with a range of safety features, including an emergency lowering system, to ensure your safety at all times. If your lift stops working while you are using it, use the communication system or in cabin phone to call for help.
Note: some lifts will have an auto-dial function that will automatically connect you to the emergency response number. Otherwise, there will likely be an emergency number display near the dial pad.
Axis Lifts offers a 24/7 response service to keep your lift running smoothly all year round.
