Vivalift, home lifts

Travel up to 15m

​First of all, Vivalift home lifts can be installed without a load-bearing wall, in a simple plasterboard hoistway. They operate without a machine room, and without a pit (when using a ramp), or with an 8-cm pit inside or outside existing buildings.

These lifts are perfect for installations with difficult technical constraints and low traffic. This means our home lifts are ideal for buildings open to the buildings open to the public, office buildings, shops, and homes. 


Elegance, toughness and safety

The certified home lifts in the ERMHES range have been designed in compliance with the 2006-42/CE machinery directive and the EN 81-41 standard.

Therefore, Vivalift lifts are especially suited to :

  • Buildings under renovation subject to stringent public access regulations,
  • Existing private residential buildings with between 1 and 4 floors,
  • Private detached houses,
  • Public buildings: town halls, schools, etc.

In addition, the footprint is smaller than that of a conventional lift. It requires 2.6m ceiling clearance on the top floor.

Finally, the installation cost for Vivalift home lifts is to 3 to 5 times less expensive for a conventional lift.

Your custom-made lift

Whatever your environment, the Vivalift steel cabin is designed to complement your architecture. You can design your own custom cabin from a range of materials specially selected by our designers.

Whatever your environment, the Vivalift home lift has been designed to minimise its footprint and the time required for the installation.

Also, thanks to its free-standing structure, the Vivalift requires no load-bearing wall, machine room, or pit. You can easily install it in a plasterboard hoistway or using a mast, indoors or out. See the page Our Achievements.

Finally, the silent electric technology in Vivalift home lifts will astonish you. Its automatic doors open especially quietly.

Vivalift home lifts and safety

Since 1996, ERMHES has brought you the ultimate in safety.

Vivalift’s system is fully compliant with safety regulations, with :

  • Parachute system to stop the cabin if necessary,
  • Overload detector,
  • Overspeed detector linked to the parachute device,
  • Battery backup in case of power failure, which allows the user to exit the lift independently of any outside help,
  • A light curtain at the edge of each open side protects the user from any contact with the wall.

Our Vivalift home lifts are designed in compliance with the EN 81-41 standard on the construction and installation of vertical lifts for people with reduced mobility. They also conform to the 2006/42 CE machinery directive. C.E.E. No. 0526 760D 3502 07 08 certified by CETIM.
