Future-proofing has never looked this good. While an aging North American population will necessitate extensive retrofits to millions of homes, the results don’t have to compromise style: Elegant mobility solutions from Savaria offer an uncommonly design-driven vision of aging in place.
The Vuelift panoramic residential elevator exemplifies Savaria’s aesthetically refined approach to mobility. Available in a range of configurations and styles, Vuelift models feature an integrated glass or acrylic hoistway with matching cab and landing doors.
It makes for a sleek and well appointed addition to the home. While the hoistway, cab and landing doors introduce a tasteful presence, Vuelift’s powder-coated steel frames are a striking accent, making the elevator a subtle focal point in the home. It’s a contrast to other home mobility solutions, which seldom combine style and functionality with Vuelift’s adroit grace.
While the results are sophisticated, the installation process is surprisingly streamlined. Thanks to Vuelift’s integrated hoistway and all-in-one mechanics, the elevators can easily be placed in the middle of the room, within a compact mezzanine or at the centre of a spiral staircase.
From chalets and country manors to urban townhouses and penthouse condominiums, Vuelift elevators offer a vital mobility solution – and an aesthetic complement – to a wide variety of homes. Available in UV-resistant glass or clear acrylic to allow natural light to shine through, the clarity means the 360-degree view from inside the cab is as captivating as the elevator’s exterior design, while customizable frame colours can also be used to complement other interior design elements.
Vuelift is offered in six base models – with capacities of up to 432 kilograms – including the chiseled Octagonal, the cylindrical Round and the newly introduced Vuelift Mini. With a 50-inch diameter footrprint, the Vuelift Mini is the most versatile model yet – the lift can sit beside a wall, in a corner or at the heart of the room while sacrificing little open space.
“The adage that ‘form follows function’ is great up to a point. But there’s no reason why we can’t have beautiful things that also help people live independently,” says Linda Kafka, Director of Trade Relations for Caplan’s and Founder of LivABLE Environment Inc. For Savaria, it’s a guiding ethos: Beauty and mobility do go hand in hand. In other words, Vuelift offers the ability to skip the stairs in some style.
