LIFT SIZES

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.

MIRAGE

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.

MIRACLE

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.

MIRACLE MAX

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.

RESiLIFT® BENEFITS

For over a decade we have been perfecting our lift to ensure that our customers enjoy all the benefits that our lift offers

RESiLIFT® is manufactured in Australia from quality parts by the Residential Lift Company who is the patent holder.

RESiLIFT® is the original freestanding residential elevator. This means that it does not require a shaft, reducing the impact on the building and minimising any building modifications associated with installing a lift.

The RESiLIFT® includes a safety barrier which ensures that once the operator is more than 1 meter from the ground there is a barrier preventing them from falling.

The doorless quality of RESiLIFT®increases accessibility, reliability and safety; it is not possible to become trapped inside.

Peter van Emmerik who designed the innovative RESiLIFT® is still actively involved in product development within the business which means you have the latest improvements.

Because the lift is made locally, it can be supplied quickly or if desired, customised to your unique requirements, such as modifying the depth of the car.

CASE STUDY Ros Morton was in tears six months after she and her husband Stuart moved into their new two-storey home in Rosebud, Victoria. Yes, there were the amazing views of Port Phillip Bay and the sun setting slowly on the horizon. And yes, they were excited to be close to their son and his family in Mount Eliza and all the Peninsula had to offer after relocating from Mooroolbark (Edna Walling territory). But there was one major problem preventing Ros from enjoying any of it. “I’d had a full hip replacement and was having problems rehabilitating. I was in this fabulous house and thinking what have we done? How am I ever going to navigate the stairs? I could barely drag myself up from ground level let alone carry shopping or washing from one floor to the other. We were seriously considering another move.” The Morton’s main living area is on the top floor of their Rosebud home – ideal for drinks on the deck and sighting ships in the distance, but not so great if you are physically challenged. “I had to rely on Stuart to do all the lifting which was difficult because he was going through…

The idea of the lift was conceived when it was proposed to Peter Van Emmerik by his son Andrew, that in view of the ageing population and the absence of a lift suitable for residential use, a market for this product would emerge and that it would provide Peter with a challenging retirement project at age 67. The options were evaluated and it was concluded that to make the lift economic and blend in with the home decor as a retro fit was to make it free standing by eliminating the enclosures and enclosure doors. It was discovered that the Australian Standards Commission had also foreseen the emerging need and had composed and issued a Standard AS 1735 part 15 to meet this need.  The “thru lift” concept was birthed at this very time. The next challenge was to have the entire lift motor, wire rope system, control boards etc. within the 300 mm high space between the cabin ceiling and the home ceiling to avoid penetrating the upper floor ceiling into the roof space. Peter set out drafting the lift on a drafting board he had purchased at a Hydro fire sale!  The prototype unit was then produced on…
