Could any one help me with an Home lift product which we can market and install in Australia must comply with EN-81 or AS 1735.12/16

I assume you want a seated or wheelchair lift for 1 person only

try WWW.KALEA.SE they are based in Sweden but the site has an english option These are more "public access" type lifts

other options in the UK for "domestic lifts" are POLLOCKS WESSEX MEDICAL or TERRY LIFTS

At my knowledge in Europe none of the home lifts comply with EN 81, they are certified according to European Lift directive or Machine directive. If you need more detailed info on this you can contact Dictator Technik in Germany www.dictator.de Alen Vuksic

I make elevator controllers for a couple of Brisbane companies that make Part 15 and Part 16 lifts. I'm not sure if that's what you're after or if you are wanting to assemble your own but contact me if you are interested in talking to any of these companies.

I believe at the moment the through floor lifts in the UK are not manufactured to EN81. The relevant British Standard is BS5900. The Wessex VM Home lift is also manufactured to the German TUV standard.
