  • When will the AirLift be available for purchase and installation?
    AirLift™ is in the development currently with several technology prototypes already built and tested. We are working tirelessly to introduce the Kilimanjaro™ model – the upscale residential (or home elevator) AirLift™. We are in the process of building and testing vital systems of the elevator, ensuring an uncompromised performance and safety of our products. Once fully tested – it will be released to the market for immediate availability The estimated release date for the Kilimanjaro product is June 30, 2023.
  • How many different models of AirLift will be available on the market?
    We plan on releasing several lines of products for AirLift™ elevator. First and foremost, we will introduce home elevators line of products, including the Elbrus and Kilimanjaro models. Kilimanjaro will be introduced to the market first – it is the upscale model capable of lifting up to 4 people or a wheelchair with accompanying person to up to 4 floors. After we increase our volume production and automate custom manufacturing of some parts, we will be able to reduce manufacturing costs and introduce more affordable model Elbrus for the mainstream buyer. We continue to work 24/7 to release our products to the market as scheduled. At a later time, we will also introduce business line of products for commercial setting – for low-rise commercial real estate.
  • What are the plans for releasing a budget AirLift product?
    Elbrus, the budget version of AirLift™ is in the development and is planned to be released to the market by end of 2024 or during 2025. This will largely depend on our ability to bring the cost of manufacturing down at high volume sales. We will be able to safely release the Elbrus to the market with more affordable price tag once our cost structure is optimized and production volume has reached significant repeatable monthly production volumes.
  • What is the price of AirLift?
    Our current MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) is estimated to start from $45K for the Kilimanjaro product and $25K for the Elbrus product for the minimal configuration and for the 2-floor model. Depending on the optional feature set and the number of floors, this price may go up. We are confident that the price of our products is very competitive compared with similar category of products on the market. Current ongoing high inflation worldwide and increased price of energy and logistics affects the cost of our production, which in turn, may impact the MSRP prices of our products.

  • Can I change my order?
    You can change your order details as long as we did not enter the fulfillment stage. Don’t worry, we will invite you to our showroom and discuss your order with you, making sure that all order options are chosen correctly before finalizing your order. Once finalized, your order will enter into the fulfillment stage where custom parts for your particular order will be manufactured. Your order at that stage is not subject to change. All changes after the start of fulfillment may be subject to penalty fees if custom parts are to be reordered.
  • Is it possible to upgrade or downgrade an order?
    Yes, you can upgrade or downgrade your order, as long as you do so prior to finalizing your order, i.e., upon AirLift™ products being available in our showroom and you had been given an opportunity to conduct first-hand testing.
  • Can I cancel my order?
    You can cancel your order any time before your order entering the fulfillment stage. Before it happens, we will invite you to our showroom where you will be given an opportunity to test drive the AirLift installed in our showroom. If, for whatever reason, you are not completely satisfied with your AirLift experience, you can cancel your order, no questions asked. Your downpayment for your order made prior to your cancelation date will be fully refunded to you. If you cancel your order after finalizing your order and during the fulfillment stage, we will refund to you your downpayment less penalty fees determined by the number and cost of custom parts that are in the fulfillment stage for your particular order. If we fail to deliver your order in the timeframe, manner and quality as promised, we will refund your order and the processing fee, no questions asked. If we are unable to install your order at the installation site in the timeframe promised due to your fault or the fault of third parties, like general contractors, architects, city bureaucrats who delay drawings, city permits, remodeling of your installation site, which is preventing Blissera and its agents from installing your order, then Blissera is not at fault and your order may be subject to cancellation with partial refund. In this case we will patiently work with you to make sure that all hurdles prior to elevator installation are crossed and we can proceed with the order installation and turn-key handover.
  • How long is the order fulfillment?
    Once your order enters the fulfillment stage, there are two processes that would start happening in parallel: - Custom manufacturing of parts for your particular order and shipping to our warehouse - Obtaining city permits for remodeling works and conducting remodeling/construction works for enable space for elevator installation We estimate the lead time to be between 30 and 60 calendar days from the day the order is finalized to warehouse inventory availability. Similarly, obtaining all the city permits for remodeling works and performing the remodeling in preparation to elevator installation – can also take 30-60 calendar days or even more. Once the two processes above are complete, we can install your order and turn-key handover your fulfilled order to you. In the future we plan on streamlining these processes to shorten the lead time to less than 2-3 weeks for all custom parts manufacturing, permits, prep works, remodeling and installation.
  • Why is glass used in the construction of AirLift?
    Glass is not only used in the construction of AirLift™, but the glass is the construction in itself. Contrary to mainstream use of glass, where glass is used as a filler in a structural metallic frame skeleton for doors, windows and displays, the glass panels in AirLift™ are the main structural element, the exoskeleton of the system, carrying the weight of the entire construction. We use tempered glass in the construction of the AirLift™ due to impressive strength of the tempered glass, withstanding to high compression and tensile stress, comparable to that of steel, yet at a fraction of steel’s cost. Cabin too is built from tempered glass, which connects the cabin’s foundation and cabin’s roof via glass walls of the cabin. Glass in the cabin is subjected to tensile stress, while glass in the hoistway is subjected to compression stress.
  • Is AirLift prone to scratches, dents or other similar damage?
    Tempered glass is an unscratchable material when applying metal tools and household items. The rest of the body is built from an aviation (hardened) aluminum that is also highly resistant to scratches. Overall, the whole construction is highly resistant to physical abuse by sharp objects, baseball bat, sledgehammer and alike.
  • What is the purpose of thin aluminum frames at the edges of glass panels of AirLift?
    While tempered glass is a strong material resisting to compression and tensile stress, it is relatively fragile at its edges. It may not sustain a strong blow by a metallic object, like a hammer, at its edge. Also, tempered glass is relatively easy chipping at its edges. What happens if we glue a thin protective aluminum frame to the edge of a tempered glass? Such glass panel becomes practically invincible – it can withstand a sledgehammer blow at its edge and its surface. That’s why all edges of glass panels in AirLift™ are covered with thin protective aluminum frames. Thin aluminum frames serve multiple purposes in the construction of AirLift™: - protecting the edges of structural glass panels from chipping and accidental damage from shock - serving as a medium for connecting adjacent panels together by means of conventional fasteners, like bolts and nuts - serving as a conduit for cabling and wiring of the system for connecting different sensors and electronics together - serving design purposes.
  • Why there are no rails in the construction of AirLift?
    The first reason we decided to abandon the use of rails and guides – it was ugly, it makes bad design. That’s why most of the elevator shafts are concealing the guides from view to hide its ugly design. Yet, it is surprising to see that literally every single elevator in the world is equipped with rails to which the cabin is “hooked” to for going up and down. The rails in conventional constructions are also serving as a medium for emergency brakes to latch on for stopping the cabin in case of emergency situations where the cabin is subjected to a fall. Example of such emergency situations are – ropes being damaged/cut-off that are suspending the cabin in the shaft; or a sudden loss of vacuum in case of vacuum elevators of PVE type construction. In such emergency cases a traditional brake system is used where emergency brakes are latching to rails for stopping the cabin. AirLift™ has completely abandoned the idea of rails, or ropes, or counterweights, or any sort of metal clutter that is present in every other conventional elevator solution. There are several reasons we decided to abandon this “metal clutter” approach: - It is ugly - It is inefficient - It is expensive Instead, the shaft in the AirLift™ is completely free of the metal clutter. We use vacuum forces to lift the cabin in an airtight elevator shaft. We also use aerodynamic forces to halt the cabin in case of emergencies where the cabin is subjected to a fall, thus completely eliminating the need to use rails in the system.
  • How different parts are fastened together in the construction of AirLift?
    As part of our signature design style, the multitude of bolts and fasteners, which are used in the system, are hidden from the observer, whether viewing from inside or outside the elevator – thanks to our special “boltless” design technique we developed in-house. You could see similar type approach in other high-end consumer products, like automobiles – you don’t see any sticking out bolt from the body of an automobile – it has nice and smooth surface. This user experience is relatively easy to achieve on automobiles, as the body is non-transparent, and it can conceal the multitude of bolts used to connect parts of the automobile. AirLift™, on the other hand, is fully transparent and the business of concealing the connecting bolts – becomes an order of magnitude more complex task. In fact, the system is using thousands of bolt-like fasteners that hold the entire construction of the elevator parts together, while being absolutely concealed from view in a panoramic and transparent design. We spend a lot of effort in perfecting the design to achieve this aesthetically pleasing and unmatched customer experience.
  • Why does AirLift use automated double doors in its construction?
    All main home elevator manufacturers except AirLift™ are producing elevators with manual doors. This is true for PVE – the existing vacuum elevator company, this is also true for Stiltz – the shaftless elevator company, this is also true for many other elevator products. In case of PVE there is one-leaf door for the hoistway and one-leaf door for the cabin – both opening manually in a swing operation. AirLift™, on the other hand, is using automated doors. Moreover, it uses double doors, meaning there are two doors for the hoistway and two doors for the cabin – 4 doors altogether opening and closing simultaneously and automatically. The reason AirLift™ uses double doors for each of the hoistway and the cabin – is that double doors minimize the space clearance when opening and closing. In contrary, the single leaf doors of competing solutions have larger space clearance requirements, creating an obstacle for a disabled person in a wheelchair, who would have difficulty opening and closing elevator door manually, plus must have to maintain a sufficient distance from the elevator doors – the required clearance, – in order for the doors to operate. Such poor performance of competing solutions does not conform with ADA requirements, while AirLift’s goal was to make an ADA-compatible device. AirLift™ – is an ADA-ready elevator.
  • Does AirLift support dual entry to the cabin?
    AirLift™ has an option where the cabin can be equipped with double set of doors placed at the opposite sides of the cabin. This construction allows having hoistway doors placed at different sides on different floors, or even having 2 opposite entries on the same floor, if the layout of the house suggests such necessity. For example, you can enter from the South on the ground floor and exit towards North on the second floor.
  • Does AirLift exhibit handrails in the cabin?
    Yes, AirLift™ models have several options to choose from when ordering handrails in the cabin: from brushed aluminum, satin and polished finishing to antique copper stained.
  • Can I order matte, or partially tinted, or colored option?
    Yes, AirLift™ models come with options to have a matte finish of the cabin glass – both partial and full coverage. There are also options to have color non-transparent walls of the cabin, as well as the hoistway. We recognize that depending on a personal taste and/or layout limitations, you may want to have non-transparent options available.
  • Can I have the AirLift installed in an existing shaft from older elevator installation?
    Yes, absolutely. Since AirLift™ is extremely space efficient, it will, most likely, fit into any existing elevator shaft. We just need to make sure that the old elevator is properly removed from the shaft and that all color-coded options of the AirLift™ are properly identified and ordered during the confirming the finalized order.
  • How is the AirLift cabin illuminated?
    AirLift™ models exhibit hidden lights, where the entire cabin is illuminated but the sources of light are hidden. This is one of AirLift’s signature design styles. Bright LED strips are illuminating the entire perimeter of the floor and the ceiling of the cabin, bringing sufficient light into the cabin. The actual light in the cabin – is reflected from set of reflective mirrors that reflect and obscure the light to conceal its light sources. Brightness can be regulated from ambient lighting to bright daylight levels. The system also has an option to regulate the color of the light from 2400K to 6000K or from “warm” color to “cold” light. The system also has an option to program the cabin illumination for having different color-coded schema during idle time, during operation at daytime and during nighttime. It’s worth to note, that during cabin’s motion the light is being powered by a rechargeable battery installed in the cabin, as the cabin is fully wireless.
  • Does AirLift have a ventilation system in the cabin?
    Yes, AirLift™ has a very sophisticated ventilation system. We call it – “impossible ventilation” because it performs a very complex set of tasks: - It recycles cabin air without compromising the vacuum in the hoistway shaft, while maintaining atmospheric pressure inside the cabin at all times - Fresh air blows from the cabin’s ceiling frame, yet this ceiling frame is too narrow for housing a commercial fan with adequate ventilation. As a result, we have implemented a complex series of tricks to overcome this limitation. - It performs air filtration, air purification, UV light treatment – all hidden from the observer, for the safety and comfort of AirLift™ users, without compromising the UPSCALE aesthetics of the system.
  • Would the glass eventually become cloudy from the airtight seals rubbing on the glass?
    No, AirLift™ will not lose its look over time for two reasons: - The vacuum seal is softer material than the tempered glass wall of the shaft, therefore it will not scratch the glass - The vacuum seals of the cabin will actually polish the glass walls of the shaft, smoothing any potential blemishes or imperfections.
  • How high can the AirLift go?
    The budget model Elbrus is designed to go 2 floors only, it is scheduled to be released in late 2024. Upcoming Kilimanjaro™ model can go as high as 4 floors. Future commercial models can take you to even higher levels.
  • What is AirLift’s load capacity?
    The budget Elbrus model can lift 2 people or 450lbs, it is not due to the market until 2024. The upcoming Kilimanjaro™ model is rated for lifting 4 people or 1000lbs, or a full-size wheelchair with an accompanying person. Future commercial models are rated to even higher load capacity.
  • How fast can the AirLift go?
    The upcoming Kilimanjaro™ model is rated for speed of 20”/s or 500mm/s. This is about 5 times faster than most of the home elevator models out there on the market.
  • What is AirLift’s footprint?
    AirLift™ is absurdly compact. It occupies 3-5 times smaller footprint compared to competing solutions, while having the same cabin space equivalent. The following floorplan demonstrates such a drastic difference. As a result, AirLift™ can easily retrofit into many space layouts, where other elevator solutions simply cannot. The conserved layout space – is an additional value that AirLift™ brings to the table.
  • What is the energy usage of the AirLift?
    AirLift™ is extremely energy efficient. For comparison purposes, 20 rides per day of the Kilimanjaro™ product will use less power than your home refrigerator. In addition, it generates electricity when the cabin goes down by turning the compressor motor into a generator and using cabin’s drag during descent. Optionally, the AirLift™ can help achieving effective microclimate control in your home, reducing your HVAC bill by up to $100 and more. Ask us how.
  • Is AirLift ADA-compliant?
    Kilimanjaro model of the AirLift™ is fully ADA-compliant. It can accommodate a full-size wheelchair and an accompanying person in the cabin. It is also equipped with optional opposite side set of doors for more layout options.
  • Is AirLift noisy during operation?
    AirLift™ is built with relatively quiet high-volume vacuum compressor exhibiting the least amount of noise from elevator operation. The measurements show 55dB noise at 10 feet from the elevator shaft. It is less than a quiet ambient discussion in the room. Optional silencer can further reduce the noise 2x, achieving the “whisper of the air” level. You cannot be quieter than that. This is 10 times quieter than competition.
  • How smooth is the AirLift ride?
    AirLift™ is smoothest elevator on the market exhibiting unimaginably smooth ride during takeoff, ride, landing and door operations. We even invented a scoring schema for measuring the smoothness of the elevator ride. It is measured in the number of stacked-up champagne glasses that will stay intact during takeoff, ride and landing. We intend to achieve the score of 5 in the smoothness of the ride, meaning that 5 stacked-up champagne glasses will remain intact during the elevator operation.
  • How is AirLift’s price compared to competition?
    The cost of ownership of a traditional elevator includes: - elevator product cost itself (included in the price quotation) - cost of elevator installation (often included in the price or quoted separately) - cost of remodeling to free-up space for elevator installation (never included in the elevator quotation, yet is part of the cost of ownership) - cost of building a hoistway shaft, a medium where the elevator can be installed (almost always not included in the elevator price quotation) AirLift™, on the other hand, bears lower cost of ownership, due to lower cost of the product and the fact that the cost of the hoistway is included in the price of the product already. We estimate the cost of ownership of the AirLift™ product is more affordable by a factor of 5-figure dollar amount in savings compared to competing solutions.
  • How strong are the glass walls of the AirLift?
    Float glass is traditionally used as a filler in a metallic frame-skeleton in windows, doors and displays. Tempered glass, in contrary, is 5 times stronger than float glass and is almost as strong as steel, at the fraction of steel’s cost. The tempered glass construction of AirLift™ elevators is very robust, withstanding good margins to tensile and compression stress. For comparison, it can withstand a blow by a sledgehammer or a moderate-to-strong earthquake – it is that strong.
  • What happens to AirLift during an earthquake?
    The hoistway is detached from the foundation. The whole construction is sitting on earthquake-resistant pins, withstanding moderate-to-strong horizontal shakes and vertical shocks. In addition, the silicon cushion between glass panels and aluminum frames creates extra buffer to compression and tensile stress. On top of everything, the tempered glass is a very flexible material, unlike float glass, and can bend to extreme conditions, allowing the whole construction to bend, swivel, jump and shake – resisting to stress from moderate to strong earthquakes.
  • What happens to AirLift during power outage?
    AirLift™ is power outage friendly and will have limited operation during power outage: - if the cabin was in motion, it will slowly descend to the ground floor, and the doors will open automatically - if the cabin was parked at a floor, it will stay parked until the power is restored - in case if automated doors fail to open, the doors can open manually from inside Never again being stuck in an elevator.
  • What is AirLift’s fire rating?
    While it is not recommended to use an elevator during a fire, AirLift™ can withstand highest temperatures, as the primary material – tempered glass, melts at 3000F, which can withstand practically any fire. AirLift™ can be used as a fire escape bunker, to hide from a smoke and fire, thanks to airtight properties of the system, and the volume of oxygen within AirLift™ would easily last for hours. The fire-resistive rating of AirLift™ can be classified as a 4-hour construction.
  • Can the AirLift’s cabin fall?
    AirLift’s cabin, as any other object with mass, is subjected to Earth’s gravity and, therefore, can be subjected to a fall. There are two mechanisms that preventing the cabin from falling: - mechanical parking pins that hook the cabin to a floor during cabin’s stop, allowing people to go in and out of the cabin safely - pressure difference above and below the cabin, canceling out the effects of gravity and keeping the cabin afloat Cabin cannot fall when parked, as it sits on a very robust parking pins that are latched to the floor forming a hard bond between the cabin and the parking floor. What happens when the cabin is in motion, and we have a sudden loss of vacuum due to vacuum compressor’s impeller failure or a sudden compromise of vacuum due to unforeseen circumstances? In this case the cabin will be subjected to free fall. If, for any reason, the vacuum of the hoistway is compromised and the cabin experiences a downward acceleration, the emergency brake valves will shut the inflow and outflow of the air to and from the hoistway, causing the cabin to halt due to so-called “syringe” effect – when you close the hole at the end of a syringe, it is increasingly difficult to pull or push the syringe piston inside the syringe barrel. The airtight shaft acts like the syringe barrel and the cabin – as the syringe piston. After the emergency brake valves are activated, then the cabin’s downward acceleration will compress the air under the cabin and decompress it above the cabin. Once this pressure difference reaches a certain threshold equal approximately 5% air pressure difference, then the cabin will halt midair. Thus, no ropes or cables needed, which makes this mechanism very robust and safe. The system is equipped with multiple failover redundancy for emergency brakes activation, so if primary emergency brake valve fails, the secondary will take over. If the electronics that activates the emergency brake valves fails, then mechanical launching of emergency brake valves will activate. Such multiple failover redundancy of all vital safety features renders AirLift™ fully fallproof, making it the safest elevator imaginable.
  • What if the vacuum seal of the cabin is compromised?
    The cabin is equipped with a primary and secondary vacuum seals. Secondary vacuum seal serves for several purposes, including becoming a redundant vacuum seal if the primary seal failed. Besides, the cabin is equipped with sensors detecting the condition of vacuum seals and determining if the vacuum seal(s) are approaching their EOL (end of life).
  • What happens in a hypothetical scenario of the hoistway glass breaking above the cabin?
    If such an unlikely scenario happens then the system will react depending on the condition of the cabin: - if the cabin was parked at a floor, it will continue staying parked at a floor and the elevator will cease to operate until the glass is fixed/replaced. - If the cabin was in motion, it will be subjected to fall due to sudden loss of vacuum and emergency brake valves will activate that will halt the cabin. It is important to note that the primary emergency brake valve will render ineffective due to the glass breakage above the cabin, however, the redundant emergency brake valve at the bottom of the shaft will be able to stop the cabin from falling.
  • What happens in a hypothetical scenario of the hoistway glass breaking below the cabin?
    If such an unlikely scenario happens then the system will react depending on the condition of the cabin: - if the cabin was parked at a floor, it will continue staying parked at a floor and the elevator will cease to operate until the glass is fixed/replaced. - If the cabin was in motion, it will continue operating at the floors above the breakage, and the system will prevent the cabin from reaching the floor where the glass has been broken. Other than that, the cabin will not be subjected to fall.
  • Does AirLift require lubrication of its mechanical parts?
    Existing commercial solutions always employ a well-ventilated shaft, usually outside of your living area – to keep the harmful lubrication chemicals away from you. Bringing an elevator inside your home – changes the rules of the game. AirLift™ elevator does not have rails, guides, gearboxes, thus, does not require any lubrication. AirLift™ is exhibiting a clean odorless environment inside your home, free of unwanted fumes and harmful chemicals.
  • Is AirLift eco-friendly?
    Besides a complete absence of lubrication oils, AirLift™ is made of glass and aluminum – the most abundant and eco-friendly and fully recyclable materials on Earth. AirLift™ is an eco-friendly device with no carbon footprint.
  • Is AirLift child safe?
    AirLift™ can be programmed to have minimum weight load requirements in order to operate the elevator. The elevator also conforms to all safety requirements of the ASME 17.1 Elevator Safety Orders of the Department of Industrial Relations, including: - the “¾ x4 Rule” - Cabin size requirements - Operating devices and control equipment requirements - Hoistway requirements - Car enclosure requirements - Car clearance requirements - Backup power requirements In addition, the AirLift™ does not exhibit any hole, trench, gap measuring more than a ¼”, making it practically impossible for a child to be subjected to limb injury. AirLift™ is also equipped with mandatory doors lock mechanism, locking the hoistway and cabin doors during cabin’s motion and unlocking the doors only at the cabin floor upon the cabin parking at the destination floor. The cabin and the hoistway are equipped with multitude of sensors detecting obstacles in the doorway path, or the cabin being under- and over-loaded.
  • Is AirLift COVID-safe?
    AirLift™ is equipped with optional HEPA filters and UV-light air purification system eliminating the harmful virus and bacteria from the cabin through the cabin air filtration and ventilation system. In addition, cabin control panel is located behind the cabin’s glass wall and is equipped with touchless sensory mechanism for detecting input commands. Such approach allows an easier clean-up of the cabin glass for maintaining a virus-free and anti-septic environment.
  • Is AirLift a smart home device?
    AirLift™ is equipped with multitude of sensors and electronics that constantly run self-diagnostics tests for checking the health of the system against possible failures. The results of self-diagnostics are being communicated with the technical support center 24/7, which collects usage data and failure analysis. If a failure condition is detected, the technical support crew will be on its way before you know it. The tech support is alerted also in cases when no failure is detected, but some wearable parts are approaching their end of life. Example of these can be vacuum seals of the cabin, which needs to be replaced every 3 years or approximately 10,000 rides. AirLift™ can also detect an unconscious person in the elevator and alert authorities for help. AirLift’s ability to self-tune and self-diagnose with automated reporting and automated software upgrade capability makes AirLift™ a smart consumer device.
  • What are the maintenance cost and frequency?
    Small number of wearable parts, absence of lubrication, simple construction – all this translates into less maintenance. However, we are building our technical support with a notion of full automation of the technical support. The results of constant diagnostics are being communicated to the technical support database via Internet and the cloud-based maintenance automated technical support will flag and alert operators about points of failure in the install base. Maintenance cost is dan annuity that is paid monthly or annually, and it covers all the failures that incur to the system during operation. Please refer to your maintenance contract for more details about the coverage.
