by | Feb 22, 2023 | Elevators

Homeowners often find choosing a home elevator or lift confusing as they come in many different types and sizes that range in price. If you’re looking for a home elevator that offers easy, safe and efficient accessibility at an affordable price, RAM’s Stratus Elevator is the perfect choice for you. Read on to learn more about the many benefits of our screw-driven home elevator, which is an ideal addition to any home, no matter the size.

What is a Screw Driven Home Elevator? 

One of the simplest systems of elevations is the screw and nut drive system. It consists of a motor, a large drive nut, a threaded steel bar and an electrical supply. Screw-driven home elevators are growing in popularity as they’re low in cost and require minimal site preparation and minimal maintenance. Unlike other types of elevators, screw-driven home elevators have a very small footprint and can be easily integrated into any home without the need for a deep pit. With so few components, screw-driven elevators save you space and reduce installation expenses.

How Do They Work?

As screw-driven home elevators are manufactured using very few components, the operation is effortless. The way they work is through an electric motor that turns the drive nut in a certain direction when the control button is pressed. Whenever a passenger hits the control button, the car goes up or down as it’s directly attached to the drive nut. Simply put, when the drive nut turns one way, the car goes up, and when the motor turns the nut in the opposite direction, the car goes down.

Why Are They Used?

Homeowners looking to make their homes more accessible for people with limited dexterity often install screw-driven home elevators.

Our Stratus Elevator, for instance, is engineered to offer people with limited mobility total independence when accessing their homes. It is designed to make home accessibility easy, safe and efficient.
