Assuming you are unfamiliar with the design of a residential elevator, let’s review the basic operation.
- The cab travels vertically along two guide rails. (Approximately 30-40 ft./min.)
- Lift-Aids offers either a 1:2 Roped Hydraulic, a Winding Drum or an In-Line Traction drive system.
- Roped Hydraulic– a hydraulic cylinder works in conjunction with wire ropes and sheaves to raise and lower the cab.
- Winding Drum– a gear reduction drive turns and winds the wire rope (to raise) or unwinds the wire rope (to lower) the car through a system of sheaves.
- Electronic controls monitor cab position, door latch status, floor leveling and automatic lighting.
These are the panel finishes available for our elevators.

Residential Stair Lifts
Enjoy Your lifestyle doesn’t have to be limited by stairs. Enjoy your home, just the way you always wanted to!
- Freedom – With the Electra-Ride, you can go up and down stairs effortlessly, anytime you want to. Electra-Ride gives you the freedom to live a full life.
- Security – Since the Electra-Ride is battery- powered, you can always get up or down stairs, even if there’s a power outage. You can rely on the charge stored in the unit to get you to the top or bottom of the stairway.
- Comfort – Unlike ordinary chain or cable driven stairlifts, Electra-Ride uses a rack and pinion system, so there’s no slipping or lurching when the unit stops and starts. Your ride is smooth and controlled. Your installer can even set the speed to suit your own comfort level.
- Less Costly – Electra-Ride is simpler and less costly to install than other units because with battery-power you don’t need to install additional outlets.
- Convenient – Electra-Ride compact size ensures that friends and family can use your stairway, even after the unit is in place.
- Full Value – Electra-Ride is complete with a full list of standard features. Similarly priced units either don’t offer these items or they are shown only as extra cost options. Remote call/ sends, 45° and 90° seat swivel at both the top and bottom of the stairs, adjustable, swing out arms, and a 350 lb. rider capacity are all included.
- Certified – Electra-Ride meets all ANSIA-17.1 residential requirements and public building specifications with the optional commercial package.
