The Benefits of RAM’s Pitless Home Elevators

by | Apr 18, 2022 | Elevators, Lifts

In today’s home elevator market, the vast majority of home elevators require excavation for a pit. For many homeowners, this is a significant pain point that prevents them from making their homes more accessible. From ripping up antique flooring to disrupting the design layout, even concerns about altering your home’s foundation; there are truly countless reasons to be less-than-thrilled about a pit for a home elevator.

Thankfully, modern pitless elevators provide the same easy, convenient accessibility as their traditional counterparts without the hassle of excavation and digging a pit. RAM’s home elevator products all feature pitless, machine room-less (MRL), low-overhead Smart Space Designs that saves space, time, and money in installation and throughout their lifetime. Learn more about the top benefits of RAM’s pitless elevators below.

Preserve Your Home

Many homes simply won’t accommodate a traditional elevator easily. This is especially true with older or historic homes; the last thing any homeowner wants is to alter their home’s layout to make room for an elevator. Even certain features – such as radiant floor heating or one-of-a-kind flooring surfaces – may make traditional elevators highly undesirable, if not impossible.

Pitless elevators provide a simple, elegant solution to the common challenges of elevator installations. A pitless, machine room-less elevator design minimizes disruption to your home by taking up less space, allowing you to enjoy total mobility with significantly less lost space.

Faster & Easier Installation

Whether you’re adding an elevator to your existing home or incorporating it into a new design, excavating a pit is always expensive and time-consuming. From waiting on contractors to even get excavation equipment into your home, digging a pit is almost always an expensive hassle.

Because pitless elevators require little to no excavation, they can be installed more easily than traditional home elevator designs. As a result, pitless elevators often require less construction, lower costs, less time spent without access to parts of your home.
