Safety Features

The Domestic Hydraulic Lift (D.H.L) comes loaded with mechanical and electrical safety features. These features help prevent costly mechanical repairs and most importantly personal harm.

Electrical Door latches:
These electrical door latches play a significant safety roll in the operation of the lift. These provide entry only to the floor the lift is situated at.
Permanently restricted orifice:
The permanently restricted orifice restricts the decent rate of the platform. This safety feature will provide a constant rate of decent in the event of a blown hose or malfunctioning valve.
Pressure relief valve (By-pass valve):
The pressure relief valve prevents the lift platform from being overloaded past its operating weight capacity.
Mechanical overtravel limitation:
The mechanical over travel prevents the mechanics of the lift from self destructing.
Electrical timer:
The electrical timer is set to relate time of operation to distance travelled. This safety feature shuts the motor down and prevents the motor from over heating in the event of a jam, lack of oil or overloaded platform.
An audible alarm button is fitted to the control panel.
A telephone is installed in the lift car. This phone may also be used to summon help in the event the alarm doesn't raise assistance. (It is not a building requirement for personal home lifts to have a phone.)
The lift hand rail is fitted with a standard LED light which provides limited light to the operator.
