Our lifts can be installed almost anywhere with a footprint option of less than 0.8 m².
Our residential lifts are extremely energy efficient and plug into a standard 10amp power outlets, like any other household appliance.
Compact lifts are quieter than conventional home lifts and many stair lifts on the market.
Our unique and intelligent design eliminates the need for load bearing walls making our home lift simple and easy to install.
With no lift shaft required, it makes the installation process simple. A standard retrofit application takes under 2 days.
Our lift drives are neatly contained within the elevator itself and are therefore hidden from view.

Our compact home lifts allow for unrivaled flexibility in terms of placement. Due to the size of our lifts and unique dual rail support system, our lifts can be placed throughout the home. We can even install our lifts in some closet spaces.
No, our unique dual rail system creates a completely self-supporting structure. The weight of the entire structure and lift are in compression through the rails into the floor of the home. The Compact Home Lift does not add any extra burden on a home thanks to this clever system.
Unlike conventional lifts, our range only requires the appropriate ceiling aperture to be cut out and trimmed by a professional builder. This is minimal work and will most likely only take a builder a single day to to complete. We also have our own in house building service and can recommend registered builders for your specific project.
Our home lifts are fitted by a professional network of authorised dealers and contractors. Once the basic building works are completed, we can often have your Compact Home Lift installed and operational in under 2 working days.
Our lifts are some of that safest of their kind on the market and boast the following safety features:
Top and bottom safety pans
When the lift is moving, two safety pans are in place to ensure nothing is obstructing the lift. This means that if an object (e.g. a child or pet) was to potentially obstruct the lift as it travels, the lift would simply stop before making contact and only be able to move in the opposite direction.
Full height light curtain (half door option lift)
The full height light curtain is located at the entrance to the lift. This acts as a sensor and ensures nothing crosses into or out of the lift as it travels. This prevents any dangers to passengers and also people outside the lift. In the event the light curtain is crossed, the lift will stop and will not move until the obstruction ceases.
Hold-to-run press button controls
Our lifts are fitted with hold to run press button controls, ensuring that the occupants are in total control of the lift at all times. This also creates a point of contact between the passenger and the lift whilst it is in motion.
Our lifts are fitted with a hinged door (this comes in both half-height and full-height varieties) that provides a physical barrier whilst the lift is in use. The door locks will only release when the lift arrives safely at the floor of choice.
Weight limit sensors
If the weight limits of our lifts are ever exceeded, the weight limit sensors will not allow the lift to travel.
Out of balance sensors
If the lift for whatever reason is ever out of balance, a number of sensors will detect this and prevent the lift from travelling.
Fall arrest mechanism
Due to our unique drive system, all the weight in the lift is carried on two steel cables. In the unlikely event that these cables were to break or go slack, the patented fall arrest mechanism inside the lift will activate and not allow the lift to move. This ensures the absolute safety of all occupants.
Over Speed Governor (OSG)
Over speed governor triggers if lift travels quicker than 0.15m/s, ensuring a safe speed is maintained.
Our lifts have a emergency battery backup in the event of a power failure.
Travel sensors on the highest and lowest levels are in place to guarantee the lift stops where it should.
A cleverly concealed mobile phone comes standard with each lift, as required per the Australian Lift Code.
In the event of a power outage, our lifts are equipped with a battery backup facility. This comes standard and will allow the lift to safely descend to the lowest level of the home and allow the passenger(s) to exit.
Unlike most other residential lifts on the market, our product don’t use noisy hydraulics, vacuum systems or loud mechanical equipment. Our lifts use a unique electric motor drive system which is very quiet. You can see how quiet our lifts are at one of our showrooms in Melbourne or Sydney.
