Home Elevators

The Elvoron Home Elevator by Garaventa Lift is an elevating system designed specifically for use in private residences. There is a choice of two drive systems available; hydraulic or in-line (machine room-less).

  • Compact Drive Cabinet
  • Submersed Hydraulic Pump Motor
  • Aircraft Quality Steel Suspension Cables

A small area outside the elevator hoist-way is required to accommodate the controller and the hydraulic pump unit.  This area can be adjacent to the elevator hoist-way or in a remote location.  Another advantage to the hydraulic drive system is that manual lowering operations are very easy for those with limited strength or mobility. There is a manual lowering valve on the pump unit which allows the hydraulic fluid to drain from the cylinder, controlling the lowering of the cab in instances of power outages.

  • No Machine Room
  • In-Line Drive Electric Motor
  • No Hydraulic Fluid

No machine room is required, making this a popular choice where space is a prime consideration. All of the drive components, including the controller box, can be mounted within the hoist-way. However, it is recommended that the controller, which can be located up to 50 feet away, be located outside of the hoist-way for easier service access.  Manual lowering is accomplished either by use of the standard manual lowering hand wheel or by use of the optional battery powered lowering.
