When it comes to new home elevators, customization is assumed! Trimmed to match the house, the access door blends right in; open it to find the car wainscoted or paneled in hardwood. Options extend to panel styles, stainless steel and glass, and a variety of doors and gates. You may even supply your own light fixture. Adding a residential elevator starts with your architect, who uses the manufacturer’s design guides in planning. The local distributor then creates specific, accurate plans and the elevator is built. Installation is by the distributor.

A winding drum elevator is similar to early versions, using aircraft cables attached to a rotating drum and variable-speed motor. Hydraulic drives are popular for their quiet ride. An inline gear drive elevator, counterweighted for energy efficiency, doesn’t require a machine room. Symmetry Elevators, (877) 568-5804.
