Home Elevator Safety Campaign

To any home owner, the idea of an residential elevator may be a dream come true. For people with mobility issues, it goes beyond just a novel idea, to it being a necessity. But there are many safety measures and concerns when installing, operating and maintaining a home elevator. Our friends over at Garaventa Lift informed us of a brand new, and much needed, initiative for Home Elevator Education, to help answer questions and concerns when installing a home elevator.

In June of this year, the homeSAFE (Safety Awareness For Home Elevators) campaign was launched. The homeSAFE partners: The Association of Members of the Accessibility Equipment Industry (AEMA), National Association of Elevator Contractors (NAEC), National Association of Elevator Safety Authorities International (NAESA International) and ThyssenKrupp Access Corp, reflect the industry production, inspection, sales and installation process of home elevators. The intent of this campaign is to help raise awareness about the installation, operation and maintenance of home elevators. Not only is this is an Industry-First, but its an Industry-Wide awareness campaign.

With the desire for home elevators on the rise (Chicago Tribune), as well as the market consistently growing, more and more home elevators are getting installed. But despise this rise in installations, there is little available information for potential consumers. “Until now, much of this information was either scattered on various websites or not documented. Having information in one place helps homeowners easily find basic information about home elevator safety and smart practices. Simply, this allows them to assume greater control over their safety.” – John Sweeney, president of NAEC. Having customers aware of all the aspects of a home elevator, creates a dialogue between parties, asking more informed questions, and receiving more concrete answers.

This gives Elevator Service Company another source of information to help guide our customers. There are countless questions when considering installing a home elevator. Between price, model, and contracting issues, safety questions sometimes fall to the wayside. With this new campaign there is a place for us to direct both current, and future customers who might have raised safety concerns.

Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators: Solutions for Retrofits and New Construction

Pneumatic vacuum elevators are the next big innovation in residential elevator technology. Powered by air and low on energy consumption, vacuum elevators are safe, efficient and attractive ways to increase the number of upward mobility options in your home. Unlike older elevator designs, pneumatic elevators do not rely on a system of heavy weights and pulleys to function.

Instead, the vacuum elevator uses a careful manipulation of the air pressure above and below the elevator car to deliver passengers safely and quickly to their destination. Here’s why this matters: Because pneumatic elevators do not require tons of complex construction (most of our installs are done in two days), they make the absolute best choice for both retrofitting old homes and building new ones.

If you’re working on a new home, you can work a PVE elevator into the design from the outset. Vacuum elevators require very little space beyond that which the cylinder takes up, and any architect or designer should be able to find the perfect spot to put one when working out the final layout of your home. If you’re remodeling or need an elevator added to an existing home, the small space requirements and low-impact construction process make pneumatic elevators even better.

Look at it this way: Residential elevators were once clunky, massive installations that required weeks of construction and a full overhaul of your house’s layout. Sometimes structural changes would even need to be made. But that time has come and gone, and pneumatic elevators make it easy to add a home elevator to both new and old residences.

Check out our fascinating line of vacuum elevators and you’ll quickly see how attractive and low-maintenance they are.
