A versatile and intelligent lift concept

One of the major advantages of our homelifts is their efficient use of space. Due to the modular design of the Genesis Type B, installation time is significantly reduced. Additionally, all the technology is integrated directly into the lift shaft and requires no pit or overhead clearance. Thus, this homelift is perfectly suited for both new installations and retrofit projects.

Modern lift design

Glass conveys timeless elegance and architectural lightness. The Genesis Type B lift shaft is available with glass panels on all four sides, allowing you to maximize natural light and enjoy the beautiful views in your home.

Installation examples of Genesis Type B

The required space for a lift varies depending on the model and size. Just 1 square meter is sufficient to install our most compact model, which takes up little more space than a wardrobe.

If you have just enough space for a wardrobe, it is indeed possible to integrate a lift into your house. While it may seem unlikely, for our smallest lift, which occupies an area of just 600×830 mm, this is actually achievable. Many residents of smaller homes with limited space often mistakenly assume that there is no room for a lift, although that is usually not the case.

Garaventa Lift's space-saving platform lifts can be installed even in tight areas, such as a staircase. Unlike traditional elevators, our models do not require a separate machine room and can be installed without a shaft. On the top floor, only a room height of 2300 mm is needed for a full-size door. The smart and space-efficient design of our lifts allows for installation in your house without the need for major renovations.

If there is no space inside your house or no suitable location can be found, there is also the option of mounting the lift on the exterior facade. Such an outdoor lift not only provides convenient access to your garden but also connects the living area inside the house with the outdoor area. Garaventa Lift's outdoor lifts are robustly constructed and withstand harsh weather conditions such as snow and rain.

With a solution from Garaventa Lift, you are opting for a homelift that can also be installed indoors - and that with surprisingly little effort. Thanks to its self-supporting construction, it is not necessary to already have an elevator shaft in place. You will receive this together with your new lift, and if you wish, it even comes in a panoramic version. Alternatively, a shaft can be built by the builder. A major advantage of our products in this area is their small footprint. You can realize an indoor homelift with just 1 square meter of space. However, please note that a different minimum size is required if the lift is to transport a wheelchair.

Of course! Garaventa Lift solutions are extremely flexible and can be implemented both inside the building and as an outdoor homelift at fair prices. As described above, such variants are often also referred to as "outdoor elevator" or "outdoor lift". Typically, your new lift will then be placed near the entrance door or even next to the balcony and, thanks to modern design, will make a real statement! Experienced employees from our company take care of the installation with the utmost care and put your new homelift into operation.

Generally, a homelift can be realized in different dimensions. At Garaventa Lift, we ensure that your new elevator fits ideally into your individual living situation. Of course, certain structural requirements must be taken into account. In this context, we deliver lifts according to DIN EN 81-41. This standard covers all relevant conditions for vertical platform lifts for people with limited mobility. To always be on the safe side, the experienced project managers at Garaventa Lift take care of the project planning and thus enable tailored solutions with individual adjustments according to your taste.

No, a homelift always requires a shaft. However, this shaft can also be constructed on-site. It can be built by masonry or with a framework support. In this case, only a load-bearing wall for the drive side is needed. Even if you opt for a self-supporting steel shaft provided by the manufacturer, which is built on a post-and-beam structure, it still needs to be anchored to the building.

The question of the price for a homelift cannot be answered in a blanket manner. There are several questions that need to be clarified beforehand, which are important factors in determining the price. These include:

  • What are the structural conditions inside or outside the building?
  • What specific requirements does the user have for the equipment of the homelift?
  • What technical capabilities should the lift have?
  • What personal preferences are there regarding the design?

The uniqueness of a homelift means that costs are difficult to predict due to numerous variables. To receive a detailed cost estimate, we recommend contacting us directly. At Garaventa Lift, you can rely on professional and transparent advice, providing you with a solution tailored to your needs, meeting the latest safety standards.
