The Phoenix Residential Lift

Phoenix Residential LiftsFull of surprises, the Phoenix offers versatility in size, speed and design for multi-level residential properties.
Custom-built in Australia as a free standing unit, the Phoenix has short lead times and eliminates many of the traditional costs associated with luxury lifts

Capable of servicing up to four levels, with a maximum travel of 7.15 metres, the Phoenix is powered by an advanced chain-over oil hydraulic drive system that not only pushes the boundaries of residential performance but also dramatically reduces pit and overhead lift height requirement – especially important with height restriction.

Supplied as a complete free-standing unit with its own self-supporting tower, doors, hydraulics and pump, the Phoenix provides flexibility in speed, weight capacity, size and finishes.

Eliminating the huge expense of building a conventional lift tower, the Phoenix requires no load bearing walls and is easy to install.

With a lifting capacity of 350kg, the Phoenix can easily carry two people (including a wheelchair) at an average lift speed of 0.185 m/sec or 0.292 m/sec if the enhanced option is selected.
