I was excited to see this interesting alternative to the traditional stairlift that we all know so well. The Stiltz Duo Home Lift is a through floor lift which can be installed to retrofit your home if climbing the stairs is or is becoming a particular challenge. The lift can comfortably carry up to two people standing and can even fit in a vacuum cleaner and the family pet apparently, but I guess that’s not all at the same time!?! ; ) There’s even an option for a pull down seat, if you’d prefer to sit while the lift transports you from one floor to the one above.

Here’s what Stiltz has to say about its Duo Home Lift and what makes it stand out from other through floor lifts on the market:

• Self-supporting structure – unique dual rail structure does not require load-bearing walls

• Self-contained drive mechanism – no need for external power packs

• Small footprint – covers just 0.62 m² surface area

• Plugs into normal 13 amp power socket – like all other household appliances

• Versatile placement and fitting – our range of models can be positioned anywhere in the home

• Quieter than any other through floor lift available

Living in a ground floor flat, this isn’t for me, but I’d definitely like to see one in action. I’d be particularly interested to know if the Stiltz Duo Home Lift would work for someone who is a wheelchair user and if there would be any need for adaptation. Also how much does it cost compared to a standard stairlift?
Have you got one of these in your home or seen one in use? Would one of these work for you? Would love to hear your thoughts! : )
