All You Need To Do To Install a Residential Lift

Why Choose a Residential Lift?

What comes to your mind whenever you think of an aesthetically pleasing house? Fancy interior decor, furniture, flooring, paintings, antiques etc! These are things of the past now. If you think creatively, you can elevate your home’s aesthetic ambience by changing how you move, and residential lift  is the perfect option for your little nest. 

These lifts have transformed conventional voyages within the house as they provide the utility of movement with added glamour to your home. Now, you may have a question: Is installing a lift in the house even possible? Yes, it is possible and affordable, as we provide the best lift installation services. Let’s look at how you can be the artist who renovates your home into a structural paragon equipped with a vertical travelling masterpiece.

Connecting and House Visit

The first step of your creative journey begins with selecting a master of vertical carriages that provides the best lift installation services within your vicinity. You can contact them by visiting their website or directly calling their number. When you have found a master in lift manufacturing and installation like us, you must convey your requirements and configurational desires. 

Once the communication of your aesthetic needs is over, the experts from the company will have a site visit. The visit will collect data like how many floors the house has, the house’s area, structural aspects, and possible lift users. You can give your creative ideas and the structural requirements you expect from the project to the site inspector.

You Get the Drawings and Design Samples

Once the company’s experts do the detailed field analysis, GA [General Arrangement] drawings are made, showing the different placement projections of various lift components. These GA drawings are delivered to you and the architect. You can express any size, direction or placement modification to the company experts you want to have. 

Once you approve the drawings, the company’s creative team will provide the best design samples based on the GA drawings and site parameters. Here, you need to do some innovative research within your inner domain of consciousness and look for a design that best replicates the aura you want your home to express.Selecting a design affects the construction and installation of the home lifts as the material sensitivity defines the structural strength of your chosen lift type.

It’s Time for Some Installation “Art”

Now is the time when the actual groundwork starts. Once you have approved the design provided by the lift company, they will procure the necessary materials to turn your dreams into reality with their craftsmanship. The first step includes constructing a shaft, which can be either steel or concrete, depending on your selected design, material type, and structural requirements. 

The shaft, also known as a hoistway, is the space in which an elevator travels. Like a tunnel is to a train, the shaft is to the lift. It runs vertically and has various equipment installed within it like guide rails, cab and counterweight. Other components in the shaft depend on the type of lift operated in it, whether it is a traction lift or a hydraulic lift.

After the shaft is constructed, the next step is to install a passenger conveyor into the structure. These are built and tested off-site. After installing other lift components, the installation’s structural aspect is complete. Now remains the last few steps, after which you can taste the satisfaction of creativity that enhances the soul of your house.

Get yourself a CC and a Maintenance Package

One last thing is left before the company hands you access to the control panel. Like every industrial product has a testing phase, lifts also go through the same stage. The company will cross-check the functionality of all the lift systems and operations and ensure that all the ride’s elements, including technical, mechanical, and electrical components, are in good working condition. This testing confirms that the lift is built correctly and is entirely safe for passengers. The technicians will then provide you with a Certificate of Completion [CC] that ensures the proper functionality of the ride. 

After you have access to your new mode of travel, you must ensure that it stays in optimum working condition for years to come. That’s why you need top-notch lift maintenance services that will keep your structural paragon greased with the care of lift technicians and experts. The motive for choosing an optimum lift maintenance package is that periodic technical nurturing reduces the risk of machinery failure as there is a check on the technical operability of the machine from time to time. IEE lifts also have a variety of packages, which are the perfect value-for-money services you can avail of in India.

Requirements Your Lift Needs to Fulfil 

Now that you know how to embrace your home’s composition, let’s look at the requirements that regulatory bodies demand in a residential lift. In India, the BIS [Bureau of Indian Standards] sets the guidelines for lift installation and their properties. Furthermore, you can adhere to various Indian standards like IS 15259 (2002) to check the regulatory requirements of the lifts. You must carefully memorise these points as these are the quality checks for your desired home lift.

  1. The controls should be easy to use so that any house member can navigate the control panel easily.
  2. The movement of the lift should be quiet and smooth, allowing a peaceful transition to various floors in the house and not disturbing others.
  3. All lift parts should be of sound material and sufficient rating to ensure maximum safety for the lift users.
  4. The regulatory body states that the lift should have a load capacity of at least 204 kilos [3 passengers] and not more than 272 kilos [4 passengers].
  5. The car speed should not exceed 0.2 metres/second.
  6. The company should provide an intercom facility in the lift.
  7. The lift car shall stop at each landing at an accurate level. The maximum allowable difference in level between the car sill and landing sill is 5 mm.
  8. In the event of power failure, a battery-operated ARD [Automatic Rescue Device] shall move the stall to the nearest floor to rescue passengers.
