Investing in a Home Elevator: Why Choose RAM?

by | Nov 23, 2023 | Elevators, Lifts

When you first bought your Vancouver, Edmonton or Calgary infill home, multiple levels were the selling feature: more room for your family to grow, different levels for different activities, and large square footage for a spacious home. However, as the years go on, circumstances inevitably change. Knees get creaky, hips need replacing, and the once-easy upkeep of your home becomes a challenge.

Since the first RAM lift was created in 1987, our company’s ethos has remained the same: improving our client’s quality of life with accessibility made accessible, barrier-free living, and supportive environments. For over 30 years, RAM has focused on creating cutting-edge accessibility technology that is beautifully designed and precision-built.

If you live in a multi-level home, you should start planning for your tomorrow today. Keep reading to learn more about the home elevators RAM proudly offers!

Why RAM?

We pride ourselves on our high-quality customer service. When clients call us, they can expect to speak directly with one of our exceptional staff members. Our phones rarely go to voicemail, and if they do, we get back to you as soon as possible.

When you work with us, you are guaranteed the RAM Advantage of leading-edge quality and dependability. We meticulously craft and source the very best quality materials and products. Additional key factors of the RAM Advantage include:

1. Compact Convenience

RAM’s thoughtful engineering and design have eliminated the need for excessive overhead clearance, machine rooms or elevator pits. A compact design requires fewer alterations to your home during installation, which allows for faster service and more affordable prices.

2. Systematic Edge

There is no need to worry about hydraulic fluid smells or squealing elevator belts. RAM provides the cleanest, smoothest and most whisper-quiet drive systems on the market.

3. Energy Efficient

RAM’s proprietary counterweight design offers tremendous value, as it is 50% more efficient than conventional hydraulic systems. We use high–efficiency components, which effectively cut costs and allow us to provide a high-quality service at an affordable price.

4. Superior Reliability

The RAM engineers prioritize safety and reliability above all else. Every RAM elevator has two tiers of emergency auxiliary power, including an emergency battery backup and manual crank.

Residential Elevator Options

RAM offers two different types of residential elevators. The Stratus Elevator is our standard product, designed with contemporary elegance and keen reliability. Cost-effective and made with superior quality, the Stratus is the perfect choice for any homeowner looking for a home elevator.

The second option is The Crystal Elevator, designed with iconic luxury and is uniquely customizable in nearly every external aspect. The Residential Crystal is ideal for clients with a larger budget and a specific interior design vision. As long as the elevator complies with provincial safety codes and standards, the world of finishings is your oyster.

Elevator Installation

From the initial consultation to the final construction of the elevator, our process takes 6-8 weeks. Our products are incredibly customizable, with a wide range of finishings and materials available. RAM is proud to provide our customers with the nexus of functionality and aesthetics.

We will visit your home for an in-person consultation, discuss your options, and create site drawings. Our team gets back to clients quickly and efficiently because we understand the importance of creating an accessible home as swiftly as possible.

The installation process typically takes between 5 to 10 days. With more complicated and intricate requests, the installation can last up to two weeks. It depends on the age of the building and how much construction needs to happen before the elevator’s installation.

Bottom Line

RAM firmly believes in the right to barrier-free living and understands the importance of aging in place. No one should have to leave their home because they can’t make it up and down the stairs anymore. Residential elevators are so much more than an accessible extension of the home– it’s a promise for the future.
