FREE-STANDING

One of the remarkable features of the RESiLIFT® invention is it does not require a shaft.  This makes it relatively easy to install in existing homes with only minor building modifications.

With a free-standing lift, when the lift car is on the other level the only part seen is the guide-rails.  This means there is a minimal visual impact, making it a great choice for tight spaces such as townhouses.

BUILT-IN

Some floor plans are conducive to a built-in lift. This is a common choice for new homes and may have a sliding door in front of the lift.

Sometimes clients with existing homes make this style of booth by modifying a hallway linen cupboard.

We'll be able to discuss the options with you when we visit your home.

COLOURS & FINISHES

We give you the option of matching your home decor and colour scheme.  The lift comes in clear polycarbonate which is a glass-like finish but can also be made in opal (white) or grey. For a more traditional lift car look, brushed aluminium can be used in the Miracle range.

The framework is supplied in Surfmist as a standard but can be powder coated to any of the Dulux range.  Some distributors also supply this in raw or anodized aluminium.

COLORBOND® Finishing Options

The standard colour for the RESiLIFT® guide rails is Surfmist® from COLORBOND®.  It is surprising how well this blends in with most homes. However, at an additional charge, you can choose any colour for the from COLORBOND® powder coating range.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Testimonials
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.

We are just one couple, of doubtless many hundreds who have benefited from your Father’s expertise and drive to develop ResiLifts.

Janie and Phil R, Mirage RESiLIFT owners, Port Melbourne VIC.

We would like to thank you for the excellent work and service you provided to us when we were in a tight spot and needed an installation very quickly, due to Phil’s fall.

Joseph E, Mirage RESiLIFT owner, Parkville, VIC.

It has been a pleasure dealing with you & your company. We are very grateful for the prompt attention & wonderful service – The lift makes our life very comfortable living in our home.

“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

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.

Fifteen years ago, Tasmanian Engineer, Peter van Emmerik was in his early seventies and retired.  Like many people in retirement, he didn’t want to stop working altogether.  Instead he started working on a project, which at the time, he didn’t realise was going to launch a full blown Australian-based company, pioneering residential lifts of this kind around the world.  With Peter’s passion for mechanical engineering, he embarked on a problem-solving project: ‘How can we remove the inevitable danger of stairs in two-storey homes affordably for the average Australian?’  This was a personal dilemma for an elderly relative and eventually was a clever solution for hundreds of Australians.  Peter invented the first ‘through-floor’ residential lift as a safe and convenient alternative.  His motivation was to create a product that empowered people to stay in their home, at an affordable price and with minimal impact on the building.  Prior to his invention, residential lifts were either an exclusive luxury or for people with a disability.  It’s now considered a smart way to future-proof a home.    “I designed this lift so people could stay safely in the home they love,” says Peter.  “It saves time, effort and money that would otherwise be wasted…

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…

Future-proofing your home is about being prepared for whatever happens to you or your family members.  As we age, the likelihood that we experience limitations to our mobility increases.  It may be the result of a past injury or a new diagnosis.  For people living in two-storey or split-level homes, stairs may become difficult to navigate and sometimes even dangerous. Faced with this dilemma, some people feel their only choice is to move to a single-level home. Pleased with already having a RESiLIFT installed, Lyn from Gisborne, Victoria shared her experience “I broke my leg just before Christmas, and having the lift was a God-send. On the other hand,” Lyn says, “My girlfriend broke her ankle very badly last year and had to have an ankle fusion. Their home has very steep stairs and no bathroom downstairs. Without a lift, it was a nightmare.” RESiLIFT® is not only an affordable solution, it’s a smart choice.  Because the footprint is so small, our lift can be retrofitted into existing homes with minimal impact.  Many people also install our lifts in their holiday homes as they prepare for a sea or tree change. Australians are including lifts in their house designs so that…
