Products: Savaria Telecab

One of the easiest and quickest ways to add an elevator to your home is with the Savaria Telecab home elevator. This unit requires minimal construction because no elevator hoistway is required for installation. Its modern design accommodates 2 stops making it our most economical elevator.

The Telecab adds the convienece of an elevator without the hassle of a hoistway.

This innovative "vanishing" elevator travels on a guide rail system through a floor cut-out. The modern appearance of the Telecab blends into your home decor and the enclosed drive tower keeps mechanical components out of site and safe. With a capacity of 500 lbs (227 kg) and a standard interior cab of 30" by 46" (76.2 cm x 116.8 cm), this unit is a good option for those with reduced mobility.

Your Telecab elevator comes with interior lighting and is finished in white or beige powder coat. Choose from clear or bronze-tinted acrylic window panels. You can also custom order your Telecab with a larger cab interior, or add a second door to accommodate a landing exit.
