Residential lifts must meet the AS1735.18 or ASME A.17.1 and A18.1 standards. These mandates specify maximum dimensions, speed, distance of travel (and levels), types of gates and doors, as well as minimum safety measures. Our residential lifts are compliant with all applicable national Australian codes. Talk to us for information regarding regional codes and bylaws during the installation process.
Safety is the most important factor of all our projects. Our trained personnel perform exemplary project management on-site and behind the scenes to help avoid potentially costly site preparation mistakes. A home lift model cannot be installed in public or commercial buildings. For outdoor applications we offer wheelchair lifts that are suitable for exterior applications.
Home lifts require regular maintenance by a professional—a minimum of twice a year to maximise safety and reliability. Talk to your Savaria representative about a maintenance package. Lift maintenance is never a do-it-yourself project. All parts must be installed by an authorised Savaria representative.
Because all our home lifts include a phone for emergency use, a landline connection is required. All our models include emergency manual lowering and safety brakes. Children should never use a home lift without supervision. Ask about optional keyed operation for additional safety. Remember that regular maintenance helps prevent issues and ensures parts that wear are replaced appropriately.
