Shaftless Home Elevators

The Symmetry Shaftless Home Elevator’s sleek and compact design makes adding an elevator to your home easier and more affordable than ever. Installing a shaftless elevator requires only minimal home alterations and provides full access to your existing two-story home, allowing you to maintain your independence and age in place.

What is a Shaftless Home Elevator?

A shaftless elevator for home use is designed to travel through a single floor opening. Unlike larger elevators, a shaftless elevator does not require a shaftway, elevator pit, or machine room, giving the elevator a very small installation footprint. Also unlike other home elevators, shaftless elevators are operated using push-and-hold buttons. Sensors on the top and bottom of the elevator detect possible obstructions, safely stopping the elevator if any objects are detected.

Symmetry Shaftless Home Elevator Advantages

Symmetry shaftless home elevators use a winding drum drive and have a rated capacity of 400 lbs. and come with a range of customizable options. Beneficial features of shaftless home elevators include: 

  • Battery power to allow up to ten trips during power outages

How Much Does a Shaftless Home Elevator Cost?

Shaftless home elevator prices vary depending on the options and customizable features you choose. On average, a shaftless elevator costs less than other home elevator models because shaftless models are smaller and require far fewer modifications to your home during installation. 

Shaftless home elevator costs range from $15,000 to $30,000 plus any applicable construction costs.
