Home Lift Install IssuesWhat to consider when purchasing your lift.
Is your garage car lift ready?
There are several important things to consider before purchasing a new lift for a home garage. The main thing to consider is whether or not your car will be able to lift the entire height of your garage ceiling without encountering obstructions. With AEI these issues can be easily resolved.
Measuring Your Garage
Example: 11′ garage ceiling height (132″) minus 10’6″ of total vertical distance (126″) equals 6″ of cushion space leftover.
Examples of overhead obstructions which limit lifting travel in low-ceiling residential applications.
Garage Door Tracks
Examples of garage door tracks following tightly the contour of the ceiling.
Side Mounted Garage Door Motors
Examples of side mounted garage door motors to the end of the torsion shaft.
Opposing Lift Master door openers living side by side cleanly, utilizing drive chain system. This eliminates the traditional garage door motor hanging down in the middle of the room.
Single Post vs. 4-Post Space Saving
With a single post lift the garage remains virtually unobstructed.
