Documentation & Technical Diagrams

Our personal lifts are specially designed for the home and include the following
(see diagrams below for informational purposes)

EtnaLift home lifts are composed of guides, a hydraulic cylinder, a controller box (which contains the system control panel and the hydraulic drive system) and a passenger car. The lift must be installed in an enclosed shaft. The controller box is positioned within one metre of the shaft. The guides are installed on a load-bearing wall. Pressure from the oil in the hydraulic cylinder moves the car along the guides inside the shaft. The specially designed automated control system ensures a smooth ride with our ‘soft start and stop’ system.
