Would You Like an Elevator in Your Home Without the Hassle of a Major Construction Project?

The Savaria Telecab is one of the quickest and easiest ways to add an elevator to your home without using up valuable space for a shaftway, or the need to build an addition just for an elevator.  And what about the mess that a major construction job can create?!

This “through the floor” home elevator requires minimal construction since a hoistway is not required for installation, making it our most economical elevator! And with its design accommodating two stops, this unit is a great option for those with reduced mobility!

This innovative “vanishing” elevator travels on a guide rail system through a cut-out in the floor. The modern appearance of the Telecab blends into your home decor and the enclosed drive tower keeps mechanical components out of site and safe. Your Telecab Home Elevator comes with interior lighting and is finished in white powder coat paint.

If you are considering a home elevator but concerned about space, the Savaria Telecab Home Elevator may be just right for you!
