Lifton Home Elevators is enormously proud that one of our residential elevators has been selected to be installed at the country home of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II from the UK on the Balmoral Estate in Scotland.
As widely reported in the worldwide media, the Queen has had a spacious Lifton Trio+ Home Elevator installed at Craigowan Lodge as part of future-proofing upgrades at the historic private cottage. Lifton is delighted to have been part of the modification works that needed to combine tasteful décor along with welfare and reliability.
The Queen, who has traditionally stayed at Craigowan Lodge twice a year, once in April and for two weeks in the summer, is expected to start spending much more time at the countryside cottage in the Scottish Highlands according to media reports.
Perfect for important historical buildings like Craigowan Lodge, the self-supporting designs of Lifton home lifts means that no major structural changes would need to be made to install the residential elevator.
As the elevator travels on two vertical rails through an opening in the floor, or in a stair well, there is little impact on the fabric of the architecture and décor.
Specifically designed for use in the home, Lifton home elevators ensure a comfortable ride for the user, and will be a huge help in making all areas of the seven-bedroomed cottage easily accessible.
These modern slimline residential elevators have become increasingly popular in recent years as an ideal alternative to the traditional stair lift and are also great for future-proofing properties.
