Elvoron Home Elevator Door Options

All elevator car entrances are equipped with either a full height accordion style gate or a side sliding elevator door. These are attached directly to the car and move up and down with the elevator.

In addition, every landing has a door installed in the hoistway wall. These doors are always fitted with certified elevator interlocks to ensure that the door will not open unless the car is present at the same landing. These doors can be swinging passage doors provided by others or side sliding elevator doors which work in tandem with sliding doors on the car.

There are three door packages available with the Elvoron Home Elevator:

Premium Door Package

The Premium Door Package includes side sliding elevator doors for both the car door and all landing doors. The car door engages with the landing door as the elevator car approaches the landing. The doors slide open and shut in tandem. Sliding elevator car doors are available in white, black, brushed stainless steel or safety glass framed with brushed stainless steel. Sliding elevator landing doors are available in primered steel, stainless steel or safety glass framed with stainless steel.


Upgrade Door Package

The Upgrade Door Package includes swinging hall doors by others with the side sliding elevator car door. The car door automatically slides open when the car reaches the landing, giving access to the inside of the swinging hall door. Powered swinging door operators are optional. Sliding elevator car doors are available in white, black, brushed stainless steel or glass framed with brushed stainless steel.

Elvoron Home Elevator Drive and Control Systems

The Elvoron Home Elevator by Garaventa Lift is an elevating system designed specifically for use in private residences. There is a choice of two drive systems available; hydraulic or in-line (machine room-less).

Hydraulic drive system (Premium Ride Quality)

  • Compact Drive Cabinet.
  • 3hp Submersed Hydraulic Pump Motor.
  • Aircraft-Quality Steel Suspension Cables.

A small area outside the elevator hoist-way is required to accommodate the controller and the hydraulic pump unit. This area can be adjacent to the elevator hoist-way or in a remote location.

Another advantage to the hydraulic drive system is that manual lowering operations are very easy for those with limited strength or mobility. There is a manual lowering valve on the pump unit which allows the hydraulic fluid to drain from the cylinder, controlling the lowering of the cab in instances of power outages.

  • 1:2 Cable Hydraulic Drive. (1)
  • Two-speed hydraulic control calve provides smooth, comfortable starting and stopping. (2)
  • Submersed hydraulic pump and motor ensures quiet operation. (3)
  • Recommended pit depth:8"(203 mm). Shallower depths may be feasible. Deeper pits may be required for larger can sizes. (4)
  • System utilizes a heavy duty car sling which provides uncompromised stability. (5)

Elvoron MR In-Line Drive Home Elevator

  • 2hp In-Line Drive Electric Motor.
  • No Hydraulic Fluid.

This a popular choice where space is a prime consideration. All of the drive components are mounted within the hoist-way except the controller which is located outside of the hoist-way for easy service access. Manual lowering is accomplished either by use of the standard manual lowering hand wheel, or by use of the optional battery powered lowering.

  • Controller box c/w UPS can be mounted on any wall adjacent to the hoistway or in a remote location up to 50 ft. (15.2m) away from the hoistway. (1)
  • Direct drive electric motor located on top of the rail system. (2)
  • Counterweight frame. (3)
  • Recommended pit depth:8"(203 mm). Shallower depths may be feasible. (4)
  • System utilizes a heavy duty car sling which provides uncompromised stability. (5)
