Experience Next-Level Luxury with Savaria Vuelift

Sometimes you see something so cool you just have to show it to others. For us, the Vuelift elevator fits the bill. Designed and built using quality materials and components, the Savaria Vuelift Residential Elevator provides a smooth and scenic ride that puts climbing stairs to shame. Seriously, why would anyone take the stairs? Well, possibly because of how expensive it is to install this elevator. How much does it cost? Well, if you have to ask—you probably can’t afford it! Seriously, though—prices start around $50,000.

Use Vuelift to Class Up the Joint

An energy-efficient winding drum drive train system uses two aircraft cables to drive the Vuelift. Meanwhile, Savaria has fitted the elevator cab with 24 guides made from low-friction material. The end result is a residential elevator model that gently glides up and down to a maximum of 6 stops and 42.5 feet.

The Vuelift is More Than a Play on Words

The Savaria Vuelift, if the name isn’t enough of an indication, prides itself on the quality of the view from within the elevator. You can choose between an acrylic or glass model. The Vuelift glass models feature crystal-clear low-iron silica glass for the best clarity with no green hue. The acrylic models are constructed from premium clear acrylic panels that exceed code requirements for strength and avoid discoloration over time.

Safety and reliability are also paramount for the Savaria Vuelift. These elevators comply fully with ASME A17.1 section 5.3 codes, which outline the criteria for avoiding deflection, entrapment, and other safety risks. The winding drum drive system offers reliable and consistent speed under load while operating at a max 67 dB(A). The acrylic model supports up to 840 lbs., while the glass models support up to 950 lbs.

The Savaria Vuelift features a streamlined installation process. Once electricity and a phone line are in place, the elevator can be set up by a single team. This eliminates the need for calling in multiple trade Pros and avoids the contractor domino effect. The Vuelift also requires minimal ongoing maintenance, reducing the expected number of times you might need to call on your installers.

Savaria makes all of its Vuelift Residential Elevator models in North America. They come in virtually any color you can imagine to match your preferred decor. If you have the money to look twice at this elevator, then quit walking up and down your home stairs like some sort of uncultured Philistine and get one!

Oddly, I was just calling a dealer today about a VueLift for a new house I am designing. There is some regional variation, but you are off on pricing by a large margin. $60-120K!

Amazing lifts, but as you say expensive. Im building my own version for around $2500 that will support around 1000lb with safety features that will stop it crashing to the ground from easily sourced materials. A lot of work but just look at the savings ! After all none of us are getting any younger ? 👍👍
