You Won't Get Stuck – What is your biggest fear when it comes to riding in an elevator? Think hard; we bet that we can guess what it is. You're afraid of getting stuck. This natural fear for all elevator riders becomes magnified for someone confined to a wheelchair or for a person who can no longer use the stairs. If you're worried about yourself or someone you love becoming stuck in an in home elevator, you can put that worry to rest when you purchase a hydraulic elevator. Here is why; hydraulic elevators are not operated by motor-driven cables. Instead, the car inside the shaft moves depending on air pressure in the cylinder. When you want to ascend, air pressure above the car is reduced; when this happens, the pressure underneath the car gradually pushes it upward. When you want to descend, pressure equalizes, and the car gently falls. Since there are no cables, and since the car is powered only by air pressure, you don't have to worry about getting stuck in the cylinder if there is a power outage. Electricity powers a motor that controls the air pressure in the cylinder. If the power goes out, the air inside the cylinder will equalize. If you are at ground level, you'll simply be able to exit the elevator by manually opening the doors. If you're not at ground level, the car will automatically descend to the first floor.
More Reliable – Okay, so you don't have to worry about getting stuck; another thing you don't have to worry about is dealing with broken parts. Traditional elevators are full of moving parts that can wear out at any moment. Since traditional elevators can break down so easily, yearly maintenance is a requirement. With a hydraulic elevator, you don't have to worry about a thing. Since there are few moving parts and absolutely no lubricants or liquids, you don't have to worry about it breaking down without warning. Since hydraulic elevators are virtually maintenance free and break down far less often than traditional ones, you'll be happy to have a working elevator that is incredibly reliable.
