Building Homes for Life

The Lifestyle Home Lift has been designed to help people adapt their homes to suit their needs, addressing one of the changing demands in the housing market.

The housing market is changing. Empty nesters are staying for longer in their family homes, delaying or even eliminating that ??final move?? to a bungalow or possibly a retirement village. More and more retirees are choosing to stay where they are rather than relocate.

Most of the houses that exist today were not designed with this in mind, and are not equipped to cope with the changing needs of their long-term residents. Narrow hallways and staircases make life difficult for those who develop mobility problems later in life, and this fact is now recognised among architects and developers when building new homes. As a result, we have seen more emphasis placed on building homes for life, with design criteria such as ??Lifetime Homes?? growing in importance.

 

One of the Lifetime Homes design criteria states that provision should be made in new houses for the installation of a stair lift or through-floor lift.

 

The Lifestyle home lift has been engineered with all of this in mind. Designed especially for the home, it will travel safely and quietly between two floors, enabling people to remain in their homes for longer if the stairs become too much.

 

Key features

 

 Space-saving & compact
 An attractive & less obtrusive alternative to a stair lift
 Self-supporting structure meaning no lift shaft & minimal building work
 Simple & safe to operate
 Can be fitted in almost any home
 Meets all the requirements of BS5900:2012 where applicable including the very important fire protection between floors

 

The Lifestyle Home Lift is currently being exhibited on stand TV115 at the National Self-Build & Renovation Centre in Swindon. Click here for more information.
