Stiltz Homelift

In the Greater Chicagoland Area

Why renovate or move when there’s no need? A Stiltz Homelift is the safest, most convenient, most versatile way of getting between floors when stairs have become a challenge.

Look at our unique railing system, and you can tell right away why we’re called “Stiltz”! The lift car travels on our unique space-saving rail system, which requires no load-bearing walls.

Yes. A Stiltz Homelift is a great help to those with mobility problems — but more and more people buy one to “future-proof” their homes while they are still able-bodied. In addition to people, you can carry groceries, suitcases, laundry — even family pets. With a Stiltz Homelift, you can continue to live a full life in the family home you love for many years to come.

Yes. The Stiltz Trio Alta Homelift is ideal for homeowners with mobility issues, because it provides you with the freedom and independence to move around the home unhindered. The Trio Alta is our widest and deepest model. It can accommodate up to three people, a full-sized wheelchair or a walker.

Yes. Stiltz Homelifts are fitted with your choice of a half-height or full-height hinged door.* The door provides a physical barrier during the operation of the lift. The door lock automatically releases when the lift arrives safely. Lifts with half-height doors come equipped with an infrared “light curtain” that will instantly detect anything crossing over the top of the door. If this happens, the lift will safely stop, and will not continue until the obstruction is removed.

Safety is our number one concern. The Stiltz Homelift has safety sensors above and below the lift that immediately detect obstructions and stop the car. The lift is also fitted with weight and balance sensors. Finally, every Stiltz Homelift comes with a telephone — your choice of a landline or cell phone.

All Stiltz Homelifts are equipped with a battery backup. In case of a power outage to the home, the battery backup allows anyone in the lift at the time of power failure to gently descend to the lower level of the home, exit the lift, and wait until the power comes back on.

It depends on where your Homelift is located — but no matter where, construction is typically minimal. And no supporting walls are ever required. The most common location is through the floor, requiring the appropriate size hole to be cut and finished. Your Authorized Stiltz Dealer will handle this work. Another common location — through a stairwell void to a landing — needs no hole, but does require a gate at the landing and support brackets. In rare cases, additional work may need to be carried out, such as rerouting of pipes or wires — but these are easily managed by your dealer. * Your state or local regulations may require a specific type of door.
