  • Internal LED Downlights These are programmed to turn on once the user has entered the lift and remain on for the entire journey.

  • Fold Down Seat This is a popular option selected by customers for the short trip between floors.
  • Interior Grab Rail Offers increased security for the occupants of the lift.
  • Full Height Door An interlocked door that replaces the half-height door and light curtain – a no cost option.
  • Full Height Light Curtain A full-height motion sensor is situated at the entrance of our elevators (unless a full height door is chosen). If this barrier is crossed the lift will immediately stop.
  • Safety Lid Plug This crucial feature plugs the aperture in the floor when the elevator is in the downstairs position. It is strong enough to stand on and you can place your original flooring on top to blend in.
  • Key Switch Operation This feature allows the owner to isolate the lift if the need arises. This is commonly used when going away on vacation or when children are around.
  • Top & Bottom Safety Pans Using our obstruction sensing covers, a Stiltz Home Elevator can detect objects above or below the lift, causing it to immediately stop.
  • Hold-To-Run Controls Operating a Stiltz residential elevator requires constant pressure to the controls. This allows the user to ‘drive’ the lift and feel in total control.
  • Weight Limit Sensors Our Duo elevators are limited to 375lbs (170kg). The lift detects anything exceeding this limit and will not travel.
  • Out Of Balance Sensors Sensors will detect if the lift is ever out of balance and prevent the unit from travelling.
  • Fall Arrest Mechanism This patented system prevents the car from falling in the unlikely event of the steel ropes going slack.
  • Emergency Stop Button This button is front and center for the user in the event of an emergency.
  • Over Speed Detection The elevator uses an optical sensor to detect the speed of travel. If this increases beyond a certain speed, the sensor will stop the lift from travelling in that direction.
