The Telecab17 is a two-stop elevator that travels through a simple floor cut-out for a vanishing elevator effect, leaving you with more usable space. Available in two standard sizes – both with a capacity of 845 lbs – the lift can typically handle multiple passengers as well as heavier mobility equipment.

With a modular, fully enclosed drive tower, which attaches to a support wall, no hoistway is required, so no need to worry about complex or costly installations.

If you are looking for a space-saving, stylish, and affordable mobility solution for your home, the Savaria Telecab17 is the answer for you.
