More about this product

Savaria's Telecab Elevator requires minimal construction because no elevator hoistway is required for installation. Its modern design accommodates 2 stops making it our most economical elevator.

If space is one of your major concerns​ ​when finding an innovative and affordable mobility solution for your​ ​home, the Savaria Telecab is the answer for you. This two-stop elevator has ​a modular construction with a guide rail system that eliminates the need for a hoistway so you don’t have to worry​ ​about complex and costly installations. The Telecab travels through a simple floor cut-out for a vanishing elevator effect leaving you more usable space.

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. 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. If you're considering a home elevator, but are worried about space, the Savaria Telecab home elevator may be just right for you.
