How to make your two-storey home safer?

February 19, 2020

The potential to fall down stairs is a fear that many people have with two-storey homes, and rightly so.  The reality is, stairs are dangerous, especially when you’re carrying things

 With high land prices in Australia, often the only option to maintain a desired amount of living space is to build a two-storey home; the downside, however, is stairs.  Now with the option of a RESiLIFT®, people can stay in their homes safely. The lift can be retrofitted into existing homes, and the shaftless design means installation is quick and easy.

The  RESiLIFT® are designed and manufactured by The Residential Lift Company. 

Depending on the layout of your home, the lift is installed in a location that is practical.  Some people install the lift in their garage, so bringing home the shopping now is safe and easier.

Instead of lugging washing baskets, suitcases and household goods up and down stairs, you can now place these items in a residential lift.  The RESiLIFT® also has a remote-control option where you can call the lift from a different floor.

“It’s such a relief! Now I know we can stay in our home! We love it!” says Margot Ling who installed a RESiLIFT® a few months ago. “It is so discreet that our friends often ask “Where is your lift?” even though it is right in front of them!”

Another delight of the RESiLIFT® is that it was invented by Tasmanian engineer, Peter van Emmerik when he retired.  He spearheaded the way for residential lifts to be affordable and a practical solution for the home.  He invented the first ‘through-floor’ lift that has been patented, and his award winning design pioneered shaftless lifts globally.

“One of the stunning features of the RESiLIFT® is that the streamline design blends in wonderfully with any home, no matter what the style” says Peter van Emmerik.

A few decades ago, people considered air-conditioning in homes was a luxury and only for the rich.  We predict that over the next decade it’ll become the norm for two-storey homes to have a residential lift as they are very affordable and make homes safer.
