Easy Climber Shaftless Home Elevators
Easy Climber is the newest and most efficient home elevator on the market. Easy Climber Home Elevators are designed with today's premium on square footage in mind, in addition to builder's time and costs. Our shaftless elevators require minimal space and construction and can be installed virtually anywhere in a home, condo or apartment. Unlike most home elevators today, there is no motor room, no elevator shaft, no pit to construct and no special electric wiring. In fact, Easy Climber doesn't even require a load-bearing wall to be safely installed.

Easy Climber Hoistway Elevators
If your project calls for a home elevator to be installed within a hoistway (elevator shaft) due to location or other variables, Easy Climber is still your simplest solution. Just like our shaftless elevator, our hoistway solution requires minimal space and can still be installed at almost any spot that you choose. Just like our standard home elevator, our hoistway solution requires no extra motor room, elevator pit or expensive electrical work. It is still 100% battery operated and we'll still handle the installation. For added convenience and efficiency, we give you the choice of using our pre-engineered enclosure (see diagrams) or having the builder provide the hoistway in the material of your choice. Great for use in areas where code requires an enclosure to surround the home elevator, these units are just as efficient and affordable as our standard elevators.
