FAQ

RESiLIFT® are the smallest residential lifts on the market.  The smallest RESiLIFT® is the Mirage and has a footprint of only 1040mm x 850mm. The Mirage can fit in almost any home in places like a linen cupboard or on an angle in the corner of the room.  It is ideal for fitting into existing floorplans that did not contemplate including a lift.

The largest RESiLIFT® is the Miracle Max.  This is sufficiently large for a wheelchair, but still only takes 1040mm X 1350mm.  We are able to customise for any size in between these measurements except for the 1040 at the guiderails which cannot be altered.

When the lift is being installed as part of a new build, the ideal dimensions for any 'provision for future lift' are 1070X1200 for the Miracle models and 1070 X 1500 for the Miracle Max models

Ian & Adele H, Mirage RESiLIFT owners, Carlingford, NSW

Installing this lift has made such a difference, no more piles of washing waiting to be taken downstairs or carried upstairs. It has made our house complete and it has taken no time for us to “just go by lift”. Carrying laundry upstairs was one step at a time, now the basket is in the […]

Joseph & Raj E, Mirage RESiLIFT owners, Parkville, VIC.

The complete installation was affordable as we are a retired couple.The installation of this lift was compact and has made our life comfortable and now we’re able to stay in our own Townhouse. We were very pleased with the staff including the excellent after sales service.

Ann B, Miracle RESiLIFT owner, Melbourne, VIC.

Resilift.. wonderful. I never thought it would be so fantastic. We had it installed from the garage,(where my husband spends a lot of time!) up into the laundry in the first floor living area. I used to dread going up and down the stairs. Now with the lift it is just like going into another […]

Bill and Thersa R, Miracle RESiLIFT owners, Dromana, VIC.

“Outstanding and excellent! From my first communication all the way through to post-instalment, I have been highly impressed. I am delighted to share my satisfaction and gratitude. Thank you RESiLIFT so much!”

Lyn N, Miracle Max RESiLIFT owner, New Gisborne, VIC.

I broke my leg just before Christmas. Having the RESiLIFT was a God-send! On the other hand, my girlfriend broke her ankle very badly and had to have an ankle fusion. Their home has very steep stairs and no bathroom downstairs. Without a lift, it was a nightmare. Lyn N, New Gisborne, VIC

“Every time I put my foot in the lift, I am so thankful”, says Romina who installed a RESiLIFT 6 months ago. Romina and Les lived on a large property in Mornington Peninsula for over 30 years.  As the property became too big to maintain, they decided to subdivide the land.  Les, a builder by trade, built a beautiful double-storey Georgian Style house at the front of the property which they moved into 12 years ago.  Little did they realise what a problem having a double-storey home would be ten years later. In recent years, Romina developed Neuropathy, a condition where she has numbness in her feet and toes, therefore losing control of her feet.  The stairs in their home now is an ‘accident waiting to happen’.  Their adult children were so concerned for their safety they encouraged them to sell and move to a single-level home.  The thought was heartbreaking for Romina and Les.  Over several decades they had accumulated so many memories associated with their property, not to mention they didn’t want to uproot and leave their local community and networks. In their conundrum, Romina received a text from a friend. It was a photo of a lady…

In your home a doorless lift is safer and more convenient than a lift with doors. Safer because you can’t ever get trapped inside and more convenient, because you don’t have to fuss with opening or closing the door. This is a big advantage to those with limited mobility. For some people the thought of a doorless lift is a different paradigm but customers with moblity issues and claustrophobia continually praise this invention. As you travel upwards, the safety barrier (which is attached to the ceiling of the lower level) guards you from the risk of falling from any significant height.  Once your feet are more than 500mm off the ground, the guard starts to enclose you without the inconvenience or risk associated with doors or gates. Like all machinery there are precautions you need to take when using a doorless lift and the RESiLIFT® has many features to make it easy for you to operate it safely. Advantages to a doorless entrance Maximum accessibility:  RESiLIFT® was specifically designed for people with limited mobility. It hard to appreciate the inconvenience of a door when you can easily run up the stairs.  But when you have bad knees, a walking frame…

Pictured above is a Miracle RESiLIFT® The RESiLIFT® was specifically designed so people could safely stay in their two-story or split-level home and eliminate the danger of stairs and at the same time offer the most affordable home elevators on the market. Invented by Tasmanian Engineer Peter van Emmerik, the award-winning RESiLIFT® remains to be Australia’s most affordable and reliable home elevator. “I designed this elevator so people could stay safely in the home they love,” says Peter. “It saves time, effort and money that would otherwise be wasted moving home. It also removes the emotional anguish of being uprooted from your family home.” There are numerous RESiLIFT® safety features. Firstly, the home elevator operates with continuous pressure, giving the operator complete control of the journey for the whole way. There is also an isolating key to turn off the entire home elevator unit in case there are occasions that you would like to stop the elevator from being used (perhaps when the grandkids are over?!). The shaftless design means a safety lid covers the upstairs opening when the elevator is on the lower floor. There are pressure sensitive safety surfaces which stop the elevator if there is an obstruction…
