Top home elevator companies in the world
In general, home elevators divide into three main models: traction elevator, screw home lift and hydraulic home lift. There are so many brands of home elevator lift in the world, today I will introduce you some leading companies of home lift.What are the best home elevators companies and brands in the world?Let's discuss it today

Traction elevator


Most of the traction elevators are suitable for middle and high-rise buildings and can also be used for villas and residences.

Need a pit and a specific machine room

Need to take up a lot of home and business space

Need to build a standard elevator shaft


For the traction elevator, you need to build a pit with a depth of 150mm-500mm and equip it with a machine room. The traction elevator uses a counterweight device to balance the up and down movement. According to the height of the building, you can choose elevators with different speeds. The speed is too fast and the cost is relatively high.


Advantages of traction elevator:

1. Safety is guaranteed, the most traditional elevator, traction elevator is equipped with various safety components and measures to ensure the safety of passengers to the greatest extent

2. Quiet and stable, the traction drive is relatively quiet, the permanent magnet synchronous main engine has no reduction box, and the gear friction has no mechanical sound. As long as the installation and debugging are in place, the operation will be very smooth. The speed of the motor can be adjusted by frequency conversion. The noise level is similar to that of a hydraulic elevator

Disadvantages of traction elevator:

1. The requirements for civil construction are very high. If the top floor of the customer is too low, it cannot be installed. In addition, a certain pit depth is required


It occupies a large space size, the utilization rate of the shaft is only 60%, and it needs to add a counterweight device and an additional running track, so it takes up more space than other types of elevators

It is not a wise thing to install a traction elevator in a villa or residence, because the pit and special machine room will cause a waste of space. At the same time, the cost of buying a traction elevator is generally about 20,000 to 30,000 US dollars, which does not include installation cost.


Now, let me introduce you some famous traction elevator companies in the world:

1. Otis


Otis elevator is one of the best elevator brands in the world, they have supplied 2 million elevators worldwide, carry about 2 billion person-time per day.

Screw drive elevator


Easy to install

Requires no machine room, no pit and comes with its own shaft.

Requires very less civil works

Low energy consumption

Less frequent maintenance

Screw drive technology has been around for almost 100 years, but very recently started selling in China. Hence people think it is something new but it’s not. Most Swedish companies specialize in this technology. In simple terms, this technology has a nut spinning on a screw which takes the platform of the lift up and down. Its very simple technology, no rocket science. It saves around 50% to 60% space than traction lift. It does not require very frequent maintenance in comparison with other technologies.

Disadvantages of Screw drive home elevator

1. High mechanical noise. Since the motor follows the platform, the mechanical noise of the motor will inevitably be transmitted to the user's ears. Users who are more sensitive to noise may not be able to adapt to spiral lifting platforms. The noise is large and the screw operation is very noisy. Most of the screws are installed in the sightseeing well, which is not conducive to sound insulation.

2. The running speed is relatively slow. Due to the limitation of the mechanical structure, the operating speed of the spiral lifting platform cannot be too fast. The maximum speed can only reach 0.15-0.25 m/s, which is half of the 0.4 m/s operating speed. If you want to focus on efficiency, users won't like it too much.

The price of high-grade small home screw elevators is generally about $50000 or $60000. There are also elevators with a quotation of $70000 or $80000 on the market. The key is to carefully distinguish the brand, quality, configuration, elevation, service and other factors, and whether it is a real screw drive.

2) What are the factors affecting the price of small home screw elevator?

home elevators are different from commercial elevators. home elevators belong to non-standard customized home equipment. Manufacturers can customize production according to customers' needs. There are differences in drive systems, hoistway materials, product configuration, elevator styles, installation dimensions and after-sales services of different brands from different manufacturers, which will affect the final transaction price.

3)What are the principles for the purchase of small home screw elevators?

Hydraulic home lift


No need for computer room

Much save space

Low noise, suitable for the elderly in the family or those with limited mobility

Suitable for low-rise buildings or villas

No need for regular maintenance, simple installation

The hydraulic elevator does not require a dedicated machine room. In simple terms, a hydraulic elevator has an oil tank full of oil. The oil pushes the piston to raise the elevator, and releases the oil to lower the elevator.

Compared with traction elevators, they save space; you can save up to 40% of the area. The smallest installation size of the hydraulic elevator only needs about 1 square.

The hydraulic elevator will not overspeed and lose control, and it is easy to realize the self-rescue of the trapped persons. The safety factor of hydraulic elevators is relatively high, and hydraulic elevators are generally equipped with backup power sources and can be used in emergency situations. When the elevator breaks down or the power outage traps people, press the emergency button in the car, and the hydraulic oil after the oil drain valve circuit is connected to the oil tank will slowly return to the oil tankSlowly reduce its own weight. In addition, with the development of technology, the safety configuration of the current hydraulic elevator is basically close to that of the traction elevator.

The price of hydraulic elevators on the market is generally about 6,000-10,000 US dollars. The specific price accounting needs to be determined according to the raised height, the number of floors and the internal decoration. It is worth noting that the installation of hydraulic elevators is relativly simple compared with other types of elevators. We provide all installation manuals and videos, so the installation cost of this part is relatively small.

The price of our hydraulic elevator includes the cost of basic decoration. For the ceiling, we provide a variety of options. These ceiling are led. In addition, for the choice of floor, we have hundreds of options. If you have higher decoration requirements, such as choosing high-grade floor material or luminous car, the cost will be increased, but even if the cost is increased, The cost of hydraulic elevator is also lower than that of traction elevator or screw elevator.
