Home Elevator Shopping Guide

Home elevators have gradually become an indispensable vertical transport for different residences: modern single-family, duplex, multi-story, villas, etc. It is practical and convenient - a beautiful scenery at home.


1. The difference between home elevator and ordinary public elevators


The focus of home elevators and ordinary public elevators is different. Some indicators of home elevators have been greatly reduced. For example, the load of home elevators does not exceed 400kg, which is much lower than that of ordinary public elevators. Home elevators do not need to consider the passenger flow problem. The lifting speed of home elevators is slower, generally 0.3-0.4m/s, with guaranteed safety and stable operation.


Home elevators are different from public spaces. Taking into account factors such as limited installation space, no dedicated shaft, and small lifting height, the design is more simple and miniaturized. Besides, the machine room is not necessary. Check more details about lift door operator.


2. Factors to consider when choosing a home elevator


  • Security

General brand elevators must be tested by a third party, and the elevators that have been checked and accepted by professional institutions are safe, reliable and guaranteed, and can be used safely. In addition, when choosing to purchase a villa elevator, it is important to understand the safety components and safety configuration of this elevator. The necessary safety configuration in the villa elevator includes a backup power supply and SOS external line telephone system to ensure the safety of private users of the elevator.


Household elevators must be maintained regularly to confirm the safety of the elevator, and whether it can continue to operate and use, and by the way to repair the faults and hidden dangers.


  • Civil Engineering

Different types of elevators (traction elevators, screw elevators, and hydraulic elevators) have different requirements for civil engineering. Common traction elevators need to take up a certain amount of space in the shaft. The shaft made of concrete can also be made of steel and glass curtain wall to create a sightseeing elevator. There are certain requirements concerning the depth of the pit, at least 50cm, and the height of the top floor.


If the villa residence has a reserved shaft, by comparing the width and depth of the car according to the size, width and depth of the shaft, the appropriate car model can be selected accordingly. If there is no reserved shaft, choose the elevator model first, and build a new shaft according to the reserved size space required by different models.


  • price

The total installation cost of villa elevators includes equipment costs, civil engineering costs, and installation costs. When customizing a home elevator, civil construction and installation costs are also a cost that cannot be ignored. Generally speaking, installation and civil construction costs of traction elevators and hydraulic elevators account for about 15-25% of the total cost.

The price difference of villa elevators is very obvious in terms of different grades, configurations, performances, whether imported or domestically produced. The approximate reference price range of home elevators with different grades are listed as follows:


Economical: the standard equipment price is about 100,000-150,000


Comfortable: the standard equipment price is about 150,000-200,000


High-end type: the standard equipment price is about 200,000-250,000


This is the standard reference cost. If there are special customization requirements for the car and door, the cost needs to be increased by a few thousand yuan to tens of thousands of yuan.


  • Maintenance

When ordering a home elevator, the manufacturer's professional maintenance personnel need to maintain and inspect the elevator regularly after signing the maintenance contract. After the free warranty period, the elevator also needs to be maintained and repaired regularly every year. It is important for the safety of yourself and your family. Choosing a regular and reliable brand can ensure that the later replaced parts and maintenance materials are original and more reliable.


  • Appearance and operation

The exterior facade of the shaft, the frame shape of the sightseeing elevator, the interior decoration of the car, and the design of the control area - all these will affect the overall style of the interior decoration. It is necessary to match the individual needs with the decoration style. Meanwhile, take the safety into consideration and avoid over decoration.


In addition, pay attention to the opening way of elevator doors whether it is automatic or hand-operated. The side-opening automatic door can save the construction area to the greatest extent, and can make full of the width of the shaft, which is convenient for the disabled and the elderly.
