Wessex Through-Floor Home Elevator

Sleek, stylish Wessex residential elevators are perfect for the two-story home where space is a concern. Install virtually anywhere, while leaving your staircase free of obstruction.

Move easily between the floors of your home with a Wessex elevator. A smooth, quiet ride allows you to move about safely and independently, while also keeping your staircase free of obstructions for others living in the home. With compact sizes and free-standing models available, Wessex home elevators are the ultimate in convenience and a perfect solution for families with mixed levels of mobility.

An added bonus: Wessex elevators are elegantly designed, and come in a variety of styles, colors, and materials. These options mean your elevator can perfectly match the decor of your home – making them a stylish addition to the room, rather than its focal point.

With a full product line of Wessex lifts available, there’s a model to meet your space requirements and your decor. Suitable for home and commercial use, Wessex lifts offer quality at an affordable price.
