ELEVATORS IN DETACHED FAMILY HOUSES
 
The increasing desire to be mobile, especially with elderly people but also with young families creates a new market for a new generation of elevators, namely the “elevator in detached family houses”, which Americans and some Europeans call “home elevator”. 
 
According to industry experts, this concept will be introduced into the European market this year.
 
Especially in cases of newly built homes, preparatory measures are made to simplify a later installation.  As long as no lift is necessary, the free room can be used for other purposes.  An interesting solution but in consideration of European guidelines might cause some turmoil in this line of business.
