You’ll see many of the built-in safety features every time you use the Small Elevators For Homes —the “all good” indicator light, the sliding door, and the non-slip surface—while other features like sensors, rechargeable batteries, and the emergency fall-stop brake work behind the scenes. Regardless, here is an overview of the features that make the small elevators for homes the safest in-home elevator of its kind.
Rechargeable Battery. The small elevators for homes has built-in charging stations on both floors, so it’s always ready to go when you are. The battery recharges itself by converting kinetic energy to electricity when it’s descending to the first floor and carries enough juice to make up to 10 trips without direct electrical power. This means you never have to worry about being stranded if the power suddenly goes out.
Super Strong Elevator Cables. The small elevators for homes is supported with galvanized steel aircraft cables that have been quality tested for over 10,000 trips. These high-grade cables have a 12x safety factor and a breaking strength around 7,000 pounds—above and beyond the gold standard for most commercial elevators. They are designed to withstand the most demanding circumstances, and there are two of them for added protection and peace of mind.
Fall-Stop Mechanism. In the extremely unlikely event that one of the high-strength cables break, the built-in fall-arrest mechanism automatically (and gently) brings the elevator lift to a stop. This is the same fall-stop prevention technology found in modern commercial elevators.
Top and Bottom Object Sensors. If a child, pet or object is under the elevator car while it’s moving, the built-in sensors of the small elevator for homes will automatically stop the car from moving. The sensors will gently stop the elevator they sense anything as small as a dog’s chew toy beneath the car or something the size of a playground ball on top.
