The ultimate peace of mind

We have designed a lift that gives you the ultimate peace of mind that you and your family will be safe with your home elevator. All essential safety features are included as standard. Pressure sensitive safety edges stop the lift gently if an obstruction is detected either above or below, while a battery backup allows the user to return to the ground floor in the event of a power cut.

Fire safety in your home is of paramount importance. The Lifestyle Home Lift provides fire protection between floors, whether parked upstairs or downstairs. It has been tested and certificated by an independent Fire Research Centre.

What is a Lifestyle through floor home lift?

This is a home lift that travels through the ceiling or floor to the level above or below, depending on the type of house you have. This type of lift does not require a lift shaft, which means when you do not need the lift, you can send it away to the next floor. This will give you your valuable living space back, unlike conventional fully enclosed lifts.

What happens if the power fails?

If the power fails due to a cut in the electricity supply, then there is a battery back-up which will enable the lift to travel down and for the door lock to open. If for some unlikely reason the battery back-up failed, there is a simple emergency lowering and release procedure which we will take you through during the handover and demonstration of the lift.

What British or European standards does a through floor home lift need to comply with?

There isn’t a current standard that a full height cabin type through floor home lift can comply with. However, the closest standard that can be referred to is BS5900:2012. This is the rigorous standard that is in place for unenclosed through floor lifts such as the Harmony range of lifts that we manufacture. We can confirm that the Terry Lifestyle Lift complies with BS5900:2012 where applicable and have been independently certificated to confirm this. We also have independent notified body approval to ‘The supply of the Machinery Regulations’. This legislation is very generic and a manufacturer can self-certify against to a lift travel of up to 3 metres. We would always recommend that ‘Independent Notified Body Approval’ is proven.

How much does a Lifestyle Lift cost?

The Lifestyle Lift price depends on several factors, including where you are located, the specification of the lift and the degree of preparation works required. This is why we offer a free survey of your home so you can obtain a personalised quote. Home lift purchase should be seen as an investment that can have a tremendous impact on the quality of your life and add value to your property – something that a stairlift will not do.

What happens if a child or a pet is underneath the lift when it descends?

The Lifestyle Lift has a pressure sensitive bottom panel, which we call the underpan. When activated it will gently stop the lift if an obstruction is detected. For example, if a pet or child was playing underneath the lift when it was descending, the micro-switches above the underpan would activate, immediately stopping the lift. The “pinch-point” allows approximately 20 millimetres of movement, preventing even the slightest pinching from happening. This allows the obstruction to be removed without having to send the lift back up.

Are there any special requirements if my lift travel is above 3 metres?

It is a legal requirement under ‘The Supply of the Machinery Regulations’ that if a manufacturer is looking to install a through floor lift above 3 metres, then the product must have been assessed and approved by an Independent Notified Body. Once the manufacturer’s lift is approved following a rigorous testing and assessment process, they will receive a certificate proving compliance against the Directive. It is a legal requirement to have this certification. Therefore, please verify this important detail by asking for evidence of ‘Notified Body’ approval, before placing your business with a supplier. Terry Lifts have been independently assessed and have been certificated by an approved ‘Notified Body’ and are the first and only company in the UK to have it.

When you cut the opening (aperture) in the floor, will the natural fire protection be removed?

Yes, it will be. Your ceiling and floor combined will almost certainly have an in-built fire rating of approximately half an hour. However, this may not be the case with some very old properties. It is vital that you select a lift that can provide the same fire integrity you had before the aperture is cut. Some companies are not able to offer this. There are 600 fire-related house deaths every year in the UK with more than 12,000 injuries, therefore, it is important to insist on fire protection to the lift itself, whether it be parked up or downstairs. We can confirm that our Lifestyle Lift has the required fire rating and has been tested and certificated by the independent Warrington Fire Research Centre. For added peace of mind, Terry lifts are able to interface smoke alarms to the lift to ensure it behaves correctly in the event of a fire.

Do I need to get planning permission to get a Lifestyle Lift installed?

No, however, Building Control approval is required as you are altering the structural integrity of your floor when you have an aperture cut in the floor for your lift. We will arrange this for you and will always double joist the floor (if a traditional wooden floor) when forming the aperture. This is the only way to ensure that the original structural integrity of your floor is maintained. We will arrange for the local Building Control to come along and approve the work carried out.

What other structural implications are there when installing a Lifestyle Lift?

The Lifestyle Lift does not require load bearing walls to fix to. In fact, we do not require fixing to a wall at all. We fix to the floor base, to the aperture ring and the ceiling on the first floor. This is not only aesthetically pleasing; it also alleviates the need to fix to a party wall which may back onto a next door neighbour.
