Wessex Elesse

The Elesse is synonymous with quality. Its design stems from a frustration with the drawbacks stair lifts unfortunately present; for example, the Elesse is designed to be as comfortable, safe, and easy to use as possible

Wessex Elesse Stairlift Key Features

If you have problems using the stairs but a stairlift isn’t suitable, maybe a Home lift will be the perfect solution for you.  As more people look to future proof their home, our range of Home Lifts have boosted in popularity in recent years and it’s easy to see why – with their stylish sleek appearance, they are a welcome luxury addition to anyone’s home.  But which one would be best for you?  Let us show you all the features the Elesse Home lift range has to offer

Why Choose the Elesse Home lift?

The Elesse is an elegant addition to your home and as well as looking good it is practical, functional, and is built to high-quality standards. It comes in different platform size options to suit the space you have and your needs, and at its most compact size, it measures just 920 x 905mm.  It’s designed to take one or two people in a standing position, up to a combined maximum weight of 250kgs, that’s just over 39 stone.  This model is not suitable for wheelchairs, so please see the popular VE or VM range on our website. 

Where stairlifts would not be suitable for bariatric clients the Home Lift ranges may be ideal.

Normally the Elesse travels from a living area downstairs, through the floor to a bedroom on the upstairs floor.  With its small footprint it fits neatly into the corner of a room, although as we don’t need a load-bearing wall, it is flexible enough to fit anywhere you like.  When the lift is parked upstairs you can walk under the space below the lift and similarly you can walk on the top of the lift if it is parked downstairs. 

To go through the floor, you will require building works to be done in your home and we co-ordinate and project manage all this for you in the price.  A hole will be cut into your ceiling and the floor above, and joists will be reinforced to support the lift and structure.  We clean up as we go so there won’t be any clearing up for you to do and everything will be left neat and tidy.  The lift is powered by a dedicated power supply.

The guide rails attach to the ground floor, mid-floor, and upper ceiling, and the lift car is fitted to the rails.  The hydraulic pump box can be fitted inside or outside your home.  There is no need for a pit to recess the platform into as there is ramped access at the front of the platform.  All the mechanisms are situated on the lift and guide rails so there is no separate “pump control room” required as you would have on a passenger lift. – everything is all neat and compact.

Controls are situated in the car and on the wall on both floors.  There is an up, down, alarm, emergency stop, and powered door opener button with powered doors fitted as standard.

To operate open the door from the wall control, get into the car, close the door and press the up button once.  The lift will gently glide you to the next floor.  When you reach your destination just open the door and exit.

The inside of the lift car, wall panels, and flooring comes in standard colours with the option to upgrade to other colours and customise the design to your home.

So are Home Lifts safe?  They are built with the highest safety requirements.  On the top and bottom of the lift, there are sensor plates that eliminate any crushing hazard.  There is an emergency stop button inside the lift and on the wall controls too.

When not in use, the lift can be parked upstairs or downstairs and there is an integrated fire seal protection on the top and bottom of the lift.  Further protection is provided by integrated smoke and heat protectors to current safety standards.

There is an emergency battery backup in case of a power failure that provides in-car lighting, power door, and emergency lowering if not already on the ground floor so you will always be able to go downstairs.

To ensure your complete safety you should have a service and safety check every 6 months.  We offer servicing and maintenance as part of our aftercare service to you.

So in summary, the Elesse looks and feels very luxurious and is very practical and easy to use making traveling between floors a breeze.  It’s a stand-in model for one or two people to use at once.  All models are made to order and the wait time is typically around 8-10 weeks depending on building works. Once on-site, it takes around 3-4 days to complete the installation.

So how do I buy the Elesse Home Lift and how much does it cost?
