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.

“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.

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…
