Residential Lifts

Residential Lifts In Alberta

A residential lift, more commonly known as a home lift, porch lift, or stair lift, is a great solution to solve your home accessibility needs. Our selection of home lifts can be customized based on your home’s structure and design, including curved stairs and homes with multiple floors. Wherever you need assistance – whether it’s an outdoor lift, a lift that can accommodate a wheelchair, or one designed for less than 20 feet of travel, we have a solution for you.

Home lifts are governed by the B-613 code and are mandated to operate under “constant pressure”. A vertical home lift will typically have an open car and travel at a lower rate of speed than an elevator. At Uppercut Elevators, our team is trained and experienced in installing residential lifts that are code-compliant and reliable.

We are a local company providing residential lift installation in Calgary, Edmonton, Canmore, and the rest of Alberta. Your safety is our priority and we work hard to ensure your lift is installed successfully.

Bruno VPL – Porch Lift

Bruno VPL – Porch lift

The Bruno VPL offers all the standard safety features you deserve to allow you feel comfortable using your porch lift. These include solid steel side walls and an under-pan sensor to eliminate shearing and crushing hazards.  This lift draws about half the amps of a standard household plug under full load, so there is little chance of blowing fuses and breakers in the cold weather. Silicone injected rollers and aviation grease also ensure exceptional performance in extreme temperatures.

This porchlift can accommodate rises of up to 53” and 75” .

Genesis Shaftway - Residential Lifts

Genesis Shaftway – Vertical Platform Lift

For applications with less than 14 feet of travel, a vertical platform lift may meet your needs. Typically the lift would be installed inside of a wood constructed hoist way. A contractor would provide standard household doors which we would incorporate into the safety circuit of the lift. The end result is a lift that is essentially “hidden” with only a call button being seen from the outside of the lift hoistway.

Genesis Enclosed - Residential Lifts

Genesis Enclosed Lift

This lift has the ability to travel up to 14 feet and comes complete with its own aluminum and plexi-glass, or aluminum and steel enclosure. The enclosure could include a combination of an upper landing gate and door(s), or all doors.

X3 Residential Lifts


This inclined platform lift has the ability to take a wheelchair up and down a set of straight stairs. The stairway needs to be about 41” wide and have at least 47” at the bottom landing. When folded up it takes up less than 14” of your stairway. This is a great solution when a vertical platform lift is not possible.

Stair Lifts – For Straight Stairs

Stair Lifts are an economical solution when an individual is ambulatory but simply has trouble managing the stairs. A stair lift or stair chair mounts directly to the tread of the stair and does not need any additional support in the wall. Powered by batteries with an automatic charging system ensures your lift will be operational even in the event of a power failure. The Bruno Elan has a weight capacity of 300lbs. Our factory trained technicians can usually install your lift in less than 3 hours.
