How to Choose the Home Elevator


Nowadays, many homes and villas are also using elevators. Home elevators differ from commercial elevators in many aspects such as specifications and needs, so you need to know the appropriate methods to choose a home elevator. Quality is very important when choosing home elevators and villa elevators, but you will usually meet elevator dealers when choosing, so it is also very important to know some good manufacturers of home elevators. So today we will discuss how to choose home elevators and home elevator manufacturers.


Design features of home elevators

  1. The shaft takes up little space. Since home elevators are installed in private houses and the number of users is small, there is no need for large-sized cars, and users do not want them to take up too much space in the house, so the shaft of home elevators should be as small as possible. At the same time, due to the limitation of the height of the floor, it is also impossible to provide a deep enough pit and a more spacious top floor space.

  2. Low speed and good comfort. Home elevators often have a small lifting height, so there is no need for high speed to meet its use requirements, and as a household appliance, its use of comfort should be good, and frequent shaking should not occur.

  3. Low noise. The home elevator is installed in the villa, which may be adjacent to the bedroom or rest area, or even installed in the bedroom, so its noise requirements are more stringent than those of ordinary elevators.

  4. Should be equipped with self-help function. It is very likely that family members may ride the elevator alone and there is no one at home, and the elevator breaks down. At this time, the elevator needs to be equipped with self-rescue functions, including the power-off and re-leveling function in case of power failure, so that the user can make the elevator run to the leveling position through the self-rescue device in the car to achieve self-rescue.

  5. Manual door and no car door. Some home elevators choose the form of manual doors and do not have car doors according to the needs of users, mainly for the purpose of saving space and cost.

  6. External telephone access function. This function is a necessary function for home elevators, so that when the elevator is trapped and no one is at home and cannot save themselves, they can seek help from the outside world in time.


Home elevator specification

  1. The load of home elevator should not exceed 400kg.

  2. The speed of villa elevator can not exceed 0.4m/s.

  3. The net size of the elevator is a very important issue, the net size of each direction refers to the minimum distance, in the face of a new project shaft, if there is any protrusion inside the shaft, must describe the size of the protrusion to feedback to the factory technical personnel, in order to draw an accurate and effective elevator drawings, and the future elevator manufacturing construction is completely in accordance with this drawing to carry out Therefore, this drawing is very important and must be accurate. Each home elevator is a customized product, and all the dimensions are tight and well-designed, and the dimensions are related to each other's interference, and one mistake may lead to the elevator not being installed.


How to choose a home elevator

  • Safety

    Safety and reliability is one of the most important factors in choosing an elevator, so it is important to choose a safe and reliable villa elevator. Often the residents or developers using the elevator are not familiar with the elevator, so how to determine the safety and reliability of the elevator must be tested by a third-party regulatory authority.

    For example, China's regulations consider elevators below 320KG as "equipment without group injury" and do not require acceptance by the relevant departments after installation, so it is more reliable to choose a villa elevator of 320KG or above, because elevators of 320KG or above are required by the state quality and technical supervision department for acceptance and issue a certificate of use.

  • Humanization

    Humanization is the main demand issue of villa elevator, in the villa and home installation of elevator, a large purpose is to facilitate the elderly and users.

    For example, the size of wheelchair is 68CM wide and 93CM long, so the elevator car must be bigger than 70CM wide and 100CM deep, otherwise it cannot push the wheelchair.

  • Energy Saving

    Energy saving and environmental protection villa elevator need to consider the noise, whether environmental protection and pollution-free, how much top degree, how much power consumption. At present, energy-saving and low-noise elevators are permanent magnet synchronous host elevators, such as ThyssenKrupp, Mitsubishi, hosting, Tongli, respectively, independently developed permanent magnet synchronous traction elevators without machine room.

  • Personalization

    Personalization is to choose the elevator that matches the architectural characteristics of the building or villa, as well as the identity, temperament and hobbies of the user. Because the villa itself is rich in its unique personality, and the buyer and the builder are using different architectural structures and styles to reflect personalization, so the elevator must reflect personalization, otherwise it will lower the grade of the villa.


Home elevator price

Home elevators and villa elevators have higher requirements for safety and maintenance because they are inside the home and in the protection of the elderly and children.

  • Purchase price

    China's top-tier home elevator manufacturers can achieve world-class quality while having competitive prices, and you need to ask home elevator manufacturers and distributors for details.

  • Maintenance Costs
