Contrary to popular belief, home elevators are not always extremely expensive. As a matter of fact, RAM Elevators + Lifts specializes in fully functional, low-rise home elevators that are powerful, reliable and budget-friendly. For over 30 years, we have installed several elevators in different sized homes, ensuring smooth operation no matter the space.
With RAM Elevators + Lifts, you do not have to worry about chaotic construction, extensive excavation or site preparation when installing a home elevator in an existing space. You might not have a shaft ready, but RAM Elevators + Lifts can make it work. Read on to learn more about the factors that affect the price of home elevators.
The price of home elevators increases exponentially in relation to the amount of preparation needed in your home. Most elevator suppliers carry out heavy construction in your home to make space for the pit, shaft and machines. Not only does that increase the cost, but it is also highly time-consuming. However, when installing a RAM home elevator, you will undergo little to no construction at all.
RAM Elevators + Lifts have engineered the Smart Space Design to lower the need and cost of extensive home preparation. The following features allow us to integrate your home elevator seamlessly easily:
- Machine Room-Less (MRL) Design
- Unlike other elevators, every RAM product is compact and self-contained. Our home elevators do not need a separate room for essential machinery, saving you space, time and money.
- Limited/No Pit Required
- When installing RAM’s home elevator, you no longer have to worry about the price or the time spent on creating suitable space. You can choose a pitless build with a 2” ramp (ideal for existing areas) or a 2” pit for flush access.
- Low Overhead Clearance
- The low overhead clearance allows us to mount all drive components directly to the top of the RAM rigid guide rail frame, fitting into a standard 92” to-floor ceiling height. This is designed to deliver the most space and money-efficient product in the market.
Another factor that increases the price of home elevators is the constant need for maintenance. A hydraulic or a winding drum elevator will require continuous home visits for maintenance to ensure no leakage, fill up the fluid, clean the machines etc. Unfortunately, with these types of elevators, you cannot avoid the continual visits without risking the ride’s safety.
RAM’s home elevators require maintenance only every six months as it features an all-electric drive system. With no hydraulic fluid, you eliminate the need to spend money on maintenance several times a year. Unlike standard home elevators, the all-electric drive system is whisper-quiet and does not omit any harsh smells.
Invest in RAM’s home elevators to save yourself time, effort and money today and in the long run. Our goal is to provide you with the mobility solution you need without sacrificing functionality or style. Our Trus-T-Lift, Stratus and Crystal series provides you with a home elevator that is not costly nor time-consuming.
