LATEST NEWS: Due to Stage 4 Lock Down in Victoria, the subsidy has been extended for another 6 months to Victorians. On 3 June 2020, the federal government announced the HomeBuilder’s Grant to bolster the industry. It now makes it even easier to install a RESiLIFT® which is already the most affordable residential elevator on the market in Australia. Installing a RESiLIFT® meets the criteria of the grant which have been outlined: ‘the renovation works must be to improve the accessibility, safety and liveability of the dwelling.’ Whether your renovation is a building extension to your home or a refurb, a RESiLIFT® can be easily installed and be part of your HomeBuilder project. To be eligible* for the grant the home building work needs to be at least $150,000. Adding a RESiLIFT® to your plans could help you reach this amount. The subsidy is for up to $25,000 which is almost the price of the lift. The government grant is only for a limited time, so best to organise your quote as soon as possible. [*Eligibility of the grant is on the onus of the applicant to research the latest and up to date criteria.] CONTACT US For a no-obligation quote or…
EXPLORE LIFT MODEL OPTIONS
We will help you choose the right lift for you based on your needs, floorplan and space. Each of the lift models are the same width, but they do vary in depth.
It's not just the size to consider, but also the configuration, as some of our lifts have the option for a dual entry. You can enter one side, and exit the other side, thus creating a roll-through experience for wheelchairs, and a walk through experience for walkers or passengers.
The lift photographed here is a Mirage RESiLIFT. The lift in the lower level is located in the garage.
The Mirage is our smallest lift. It is the most compact lift on the market in Australia. Due to its incredibly small footprint, it's the most popular choice for many homes. Despite being our smallest, it still fits two adults comfortably.
The Miracle model comfortably fits a person with a walker. The lift car is square and has a slightly larger footprint than the Mirage.
The Miracle gives the option to have dual entries/exits. Therefore someone can walk through the lift entering in one side and exiting another side.
The Miracle Max is a longer version of the Miracle model lift. It comfortably fits a person in a wheelchair. Like the Miracle, it also has the option to have dual entries/exits so if someone is in a wheelchair they can simply roll through.
Some people install the Miracle Max with a dual entry as a way of keeping the area accessible as a hallway.
“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…
Check out the latest Home Design magazine featuring RESiLIFT®. Why should homeowners consider a home elevator? Initially associated with the aging population, residential elevators are fast becoming a lifestyle inclusion for all multi level homes. As souring land prices force developers upwards, elevators prove a safer alternative to stairs. Residential lifts are now replacing the dumb waiters being installed to take groceries from the garage to the pantry and laundry chutes previously included in luxury homes. Many people use their elevators for commuting items that are difficult on stairs such as luggage and furniture. Some use them for their sick/older pets, although this is rarely the primary reason for installation. Many people do not want to purchase double storey homes but with land prices cannot afford to have single storey, so installing an elevator resolves that problem. Who benefits from installing a home elevator? Nowadays architects will typically suggest at least a provision for a future lift in new build designs. There are also a number of lifts that can be installed for existing homes, such as the RESiLIFT®. It is not just the homeowner who benefits. Because people do not have to move home, they retain their family memories and…
