Group One Home Elevator Manufacturers
These are home elevators that are a two stop, two floor type. They are usually a home elevator cost reduction since there is no need for a shaft which reduces cost. The elevator cab rides a track on a load bearing wall. The top of the elevator cab picks up the floor as it travels up between the two levels of the home. No pit is required.

Group Four Vacuum Elevator
No special works are required with a unique self-supporting structure. No pit excavation or engine room is needed. Group Four elevators are ideal for recycled homes due to the little space required in the building. Home elevators can rest on any existent floor. They are not a fixed installation and can be disassembled and transported.
The elevators are absolutely safe in case of an electric power outage since the descending car automatically stops on the immediate floor. Panoramic view allows a 360º visibility with no cables or pistons blocking vision. No lubrication is required and maintenance is minimum. These elevators solve the technical difficulties that other home elevators may have.
