Hydraulic Lifts – Man’s First Step Towards Convenience
A Hydraulic Lift is one of the most common types of lifts present in today’s world. The hydraulic mechanism has been used in its most rudimentary form since 1846 and was slowly adapted into modern elevator technology as well.
A hydraulic lift works on Pascal’s principle of fluid mechanics. The key players in this mechanism are two pistons, hydraulic fluid, and the lift car. The pressure generated from the small piston via the hydraulic fluid is transmitted to a larger area thereby generating a larger force. This force is used to lift heavy objects, such as the lift car, placed on the larger piston.
It is a tried and tested technology as it has been in use for the past two centuries and has only gotten better with advancements in technology. Hydraulic lifts are well-known for their load-bearing capacity and space-saving nature.
Increases Property Value
Having a home elevator installed can add significant value to your home, making it a profitable investment. Many prospective homebuyers today gravitate toward homes featuring elevator access.
The construction and preparation stage can take as little as 2-3 days with minimal disruption and mess for you and your home.
Ease Of Use
Just about everyone has had to use an elevator at least once in their life, and residential elevators are no different from commercial models found in business and office buildings. At the push of a button, you could be moving between floors of your house.
How Does Elite Elevators’ Hydraulic Elevator Offer Unmatched Performance?
Conventional hydraulic elevator companies do not manufacture their hydraulic elevators from scratch. They rely on a chain of vendors with differing levels of quality and expertise for their motor, hydraulic oil and spare parts. As a result, the process ends up being an assembling of different parts to form a mish-mash of a hydraulic elevator. In the long run, when it is time to replace a certain elevator component, these companies purchase cheaper alternatives to make a quick buck. This is the primary reason such hydraulic elevators do not perform well. They end up producing unpleasant noise, jerky landings, fluid leakage, and other such concerns. These hydraulic lifts are not built to last – they are assembled.
However, our hydraulic elevators are entirely manufactured exclusively by us. Our partner’s factory TK Home Solutions Srl in Pisa, Italy manufactures our hydraulic elevators – and all their spare components – in-house. There is no question of cutting corners when it comes to our hydraulic elevators for homes. Since the entirety of our hydraulic elevators are manufactured from top to bottom to a uniform standard, the performance ends up being unparalleled. Smooth, bump-free movement, no oil leakage and a silent ride are hallmarks of our hydraulic elevators.
What Distinguishes Our Hydraulic Lifts? Our Patented Features!
There are ordinary hydraulic lifts. And then, there are extraordinary hydraulic lifts. Ours belong to the latter category and there’s a magic component in them: patented German technology. Specially developed for our hydraulic lifts for homes, the patented technology and mechanisms afford them a sophisticated performance that cannot be replicated by anyone else.
Enhanced Hydraulic Drive
As briefly mentioned earlier, this drive has been enhanced by the engineers at TK Access Solutions to remove all the inconvenience of a conventional drive. …A conventional hydraulic lift produces grease, requires frequent maintenance and offers a jerky landing with a noisy and unpleasant ride. With the TK Access Solutions’ H200 hydraulic lift, however, all these undesirable qualities have been eliminated. The result is a hydraulic lift that offers you the quietest, smoothest, safest and most luxurious ride you will ever find in a hydraulic lift.
Soft Start and Stop Device
The soft start and stop (SSS) technology improve the smoothness and gentleness of our hydraulic elevator. This technology manifests in a device that lends our hydraulic elevator … a soft start and stop to provide maximum comfort to the users. Even though TK Access Solutions’ hydraulic drive is superior to conventional hydraulic drives, the engineers still added this patented feature to further improve the performance of the H200. The SSS device is attached to the lift’s motor to afford the hydraulic elevator this premium feature every time.
Greaseless Rail Technology
The Greaseless Rail (GLR) technology is a patented feature extraordinaire. Conventional hydraulic elevators are notorious for the grease, heat and dust they produce, which ultimately …leads to their decline and reduces the smoothness of their performance as these issues, literally, pile up. This leads to an appliance that is rapidly becoming obsolete and is just years away from ending up in the scrapyard. To combat this common issue, the engineers at TK Access Solutions developed the famed Greaseless Rail technology. Here, the need for oiling the rails of the lift car is eliminated, thereby drastically cutting down on maintenance costs and frequency. This masterful stroke of engineering repels the formation of dust and grease and automatically increases the lifespan of our hydraulic elevator.
5 Safety Layers
Ultimately, a hydraulic elevator (or any elevator for that matter) is only as good as its safety features. Even though conventional hydraulic elevators are considered the safest options,… the engineers at our partner’s company have added 5 safety layers. These safety layers are present in case you find yourself in unfortunate situations. Each safety layer acts as a backup for the other and is meant to give you the tools to help yourself instead of depending on elevator technicians. The safety layers are:
1. Built-in emergency battery for power backup
2. Secondary battery to support the primary one, in case the latter fails
3. Small button on the power pack. When pressed, the lift gently descends to the desired floor
4. Manual key to open the door, in case the above methods fail
5. Trapdoor on top of the lift cabin for escape

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) On Hydraulic Elevators
What are hydraulic lifts?
Hydraulic lifts are lifts that work on the principle of hydraulics. Using Pascal’s principle of fluid mechanics, this system has been in use for lifting objects and eventually people since 1846. Hydraulic lifts are extremely capable of supporting heavy weights and do not take up too much space. The process involves applying pressure on a hydraulic liquid that is present in one of two pistons. The pressure that is generated is used to lift the object or in this case, the lift car, which is attached to the second piston. This is how a hydraulic lift goes up. When the pressure on the first piston is released, the lift comes down due to gravitational force. Hydraulic lifts can be found in homes and public places.
How much are hydraulic lifts
Hydraulic lift price typically starts from Rs. 4 lakhs and can go up to Rs. 45 lakhs or more. Many factors influence the cost of a hydraulic lift. Brand, country of origin, safety certifications, safety layers, number of floors, and customisation usually affect the price of hydraulic lifts in India.
What are the disadvantages of a hydraulic lift?
Jerky, uneven landing, noise, grease, slow speed, and wear and tear are some of the most common disadvantages of hydraulic lifts. In certain cases, the hydraulic fluid can cause an unpleasant odour when the system overheats. These factors cause a reduction in performance and decrease the lifespan of a hydraulic lift.
However, Elite Elevators’ hydraulic lift for homes, the H200 does not have any of the above inconveniences. Operating on an enhanced hydraulic drive, thanks to German engineering, the H200 hydraulic lift is perfectly suitable for homes. With a blend of German technology and patented mechanisms, the H200 offers users a smooth, silent, and gentle ride. It does not produce grease or attract dust, requiring minimal maintenance.
