The History of The Residential Lift Company One could hardly imagine that the prototype RESiLIFT® would birth an Australia-wide company leading the way in simplicity, cost effectiveness, easy installation and maintenance. Nor could one imagine that the heritage of each of the players contributed to the design and inspiration of the project. Rosemary Murphy born 1936 came from a long line of Engineers beginning with her grandfather, Joseph Francies, who became a Professor of Engineering in India and her father, Frank Murphy, obtained a degree of Science Engineering at the University of London. Peter van Emmerik, Rosemary’s husband, has a Diploma of Mechanical Engineering, Hobart. Peter was to become the designer of the lift. Their son, Andy, has a Degree in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. Peter’s family moved from Holland to Java and his grandparents formed the White Cross Colony to address the problem of the aftermath of a volcano in mid Java. At its heyday the White Cross Colony housed over 1,000 people and provided shelter, food and work on the coffee plantation ,dairy, weaving and an orphanage. The 2nd World War resulted in the family being sent to concentration camp and the Colony falling into disrepair. Peter’s Father,…
WE UNDERSTAND YOUR LIFT NEEDS TO BLEND IN WITH YOUR HOME
One of the benefits of choosing a RESiLIFT® is you have plenty of choices!
- Would you like a built-in or free-standing lift?
- What colours would you like the lift to be?
- Do you need to have the size modified?
You can be in control of your 'lift style' because the RESiLIFT® is manufactured locally.
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.
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
It’s absolutely wonderful! For the first time in 12 years of living in this home, it is all on one level; we don’t have to use the stairs to get around our home!
Thanks to you and installation team (Phil and Adrian) on the excellent result achieved with this project. We believe this project outside the existing home is not common with most lifts being internal. We are delighted with the result.
“Wonderful product. Wonderful company. Resilift would have to be the best run company that I have had the pleasure to deal with. Service was excellent prompt and delivered with enthusiasm. After sales service was the same. Wishing this family run business all the best for a long and productive future”
Many thanks for the commemorative key ring — it sits proudly on the safety key in our lift, which by the way still gives us yeoman service.
Congratulations on the sale of 1000 lifts! If all of your customers are as happy as we are, then you’ll have 1000 satisfied customers!
Alf never used the stair climber and now since his knee operation, Alf can’t use the stair climber at all. So we are now thrilled that we can both use our new RESiLIFT safely.
We future-proofed our home and now it is so much easier to get our groceries upstairs.
Far better than I ever imagined! The professionalism of the distributor and installers was outstanding.
