West Midlands-based homelift specialist Stiltz has extended the distance its latest range of domestic lifts can travel by half a metre, enabling its dealers to reach out to end-users with more varied types of property.

Now capable of reaching a maximum distance of 4.5 metres whilst meeting the BS EN 81-41 European standard for lifts travelling over three metres, the manufacturer has rolled out the product update on its Stiltz Duo+ Homelift and Stiltz Trio+ Homelift models.

According to the company, the extension will open up a new customer base for its authorised partners, allowing dealers to supply a wider range of structures, such as period buildings and homes with high ceilings.

In order for the lift to travel an extra 50cm, the homelift specialist has increased the size of the drum, while the modular, self-supporting rails can be customised to fit the size requirements of any ceiling.

“We’re delighted to have expanded the capabilities of our homelifts as this means our dealers can now offer their customers an even greater number of installation options,” commented Gino Farruggio, UK Trade Sales Director for Stiltz Homelifts.

“Our research and development team in Kingswinford have worked hard on extending the travel distance of our lifts following feedback from our distributors in countries like France and Germany, where properties tend to have higher ceilings than in the UK.

“The new 4.5m travel option means dealers can provide a unique solution to customers with higher ceilings who have an immediate need for a homelift.”

As part of continuous investment in product development, Stiltz Homelifts has also upgraded its Classic and Vista models with a new control panel which brings them in line with the Duo+ and Trio+ models.

The company, which was founded in 2010, has enjoyed considerable growth in just under a decade, ranking as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, as well as the second fastest-growing health company in Europe, by the Financial Times.
