The Safest Lifts
Only Lift Shop can make the claim of safest lifts because only Lift Shop has the exclusive, genius feature:
In-Cabin Self-Rescue – How it works:
The battery backed up computer checks that the landing doors are locked. (so nobody can be under the lift or fall into the shaft).
Provided the lift is not in its emergency brakes, the passenger presses and holds two buttons together.
The lift very slowly descends to the lowest floor and unlocks the door for a safe exit.
The latest (1993) Australian standard for residential lifts was written prior to the invention of the in-cabin self-rescue device option. It’s likely it would be a requirement if that standard was rewritten today. Checked by WorkCover of NSW, it’s entirely safe and means our technicians don’t have to drive to your house to get you out (whilst unlikely, machines can fail).
Don’t wait for rescue, get yourself out!
Lift Shop has led the way in safety for home lifts since 2003, when we were the first and only home lift specialist to include full height light rays for ultimate passenger safety – Something that became the industry standard.
Safety features include:
In-cabin self-rescue (get yourself out by pressing 2 buttons together in the cabin to safely lower)
Full height light ray infrared protection to the cabin opening (at no extra cost since 2003)
Key lockable panels to restrict child access and for added security
Safety switches are located at each landing door, on the roof, in the pit, and sensing over and under travel
Assisted emergency lowering from the machine cabinet, so anyone can safely lower the lift at any time

Intelligent power sensor that senses mains power outage and lowers the lift to the ground floor on back up battery power and unlocks the door

Electrical protection to ensure the door is closed and all the safeties are working before the lift moves
