Lift Installation, Maintenance, Repair Work, Spare Parts and Break-Down Cover

Residential Elevators

When stairs are inconvenient for home occupants, installing an elevator is simply the solution. SHARP Lifts now supply, install and maintain Home Lift as a viable option for home users. Our range of home elevators have several options for cab finishes, gates and doors etc and we also offer the technology of lifts based on home user’s requirements. Some homes prefer to have Machine Roomless (MRL) type lifts which allows easier access to the motor, and a reduction in required ceiling height on the upper landing.

How home elevators work?

A popular drive for residential elevators is the Winding Drum. An electric motor and gearbox are used to wind cables and lift and lower the elevator car. This is becoming increasingly popular as the motor control has improved. Today’s motor drives are capable of controlled acceleration and deceleration, providing very smooth starts and stops.

The motor and gearbox is often located at the top of the rail system. The drums are attached to an axle driven by the gearbox. The cables are attached to the cab. As the drums wind the cables, the cab moves upward. As the drums spool out the cable, the cab moves downward

The winding drum systems do not require a machine room as the motor/gearbox is located inside the hoistway This space savings is a benefit in home design. The winding drum units also run quieter than other home elevator drives.

Lift for limited ceiling height

The Winding Drum drive is popular for home elevators. The motor/gearbox is typically located at the top of the rail system, but it can also be located on a lower level, between the rails. This allows easier access to the motor, and a reduction in required ceiling height on the upper landing.

The drums and motor and gearbox reside between the rails, typically at the lowest level. The hoisting cables are secured to the cab and travel over pulleys and down to the drums. As the drums wind the cables, the cab moves upward. As the drums spool out the cable, the cab moves downward

The winding drum systems do not require a machine room as the motor/gearbox is located inside the hoistway. This space savings is a benefit in home design. The winding drum units also run quieter than other home elevator drives.
