Contemporary elevator enhances Prize Home

IMG_0756 - edit 7

Our thanks and appreciation go out to Jason Retallick, Jamie Savage and the rest of the great crew at Garaventa Lift, BC. Their submission of photos from the Elvoron residential elevator at the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) in Vancouver, BC has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for August, 2018.

IMG_0759 - editPremium stainless 3-speed automatic sliding doors are a popular choice since they are ultimate in convenience and the most modern choice. Also notice how the cabin flooring is consistent throughout the home. This allows for the elevator to blend in with the environment. In addition, the walnut veneer cabin walls create a mid-century modern appearance, a design feature that is also consistent throughout the home.

The PNE is a non-profit organization, which raises revenue through the Prize Home Lottery. Community members can purchase tickets in hopes to win a beautiful home, such as this one. The money raised supports agriculture, arts, community and local programs.

This Elvoron home elevator has an inline drive system, a premium control panel with a built-in telephone, and hallway call stations with digital floor displays. These features help create the safest, most convenient and modern application.

Check out this Virtual tour of the PNE Prize Home. Are you able to find the elevator?

Modern Genesis Enclosure Application in Missouri

IMG_2653 - edit (002)Our thanks and appreciation go out to Bill Click and the rest of the great crew at Allrise Elevator in St. Louis, Missouri. Their submission of photos of a Genesis Enclosure Lift in St. Louis, MO has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for July 2018.

IMG_1328.JPG - editThe custom white finish on the door and frame is a popular color solution for residential applications since it provides outstanding contrast within the area. Also, notice how the white finish accompanying the glass panels create a modern aesthetic. The glass panels allow natural light to enter and brighten up the space. Another benefit is that it allows the passenger to enjoy the surrounding view while occupying the lift.

IMG_1318.JPG - editThis indoor application provides access from the entrance to the second floor of the home. In addition, the Genesis enclosure offers a space saving solution for residential remodeling projects since it does not require a machine room like a home elevator would.

Custom colored inclined lift at the Indigo Hotel

IMG_0426_EDITOur thanks and appreciation go out to Dan Zammar and the rest of the great crew at Access Elevator and Lifts Inc in Kansas City. Their submission of photos from the Indigo Hotel in Kansas City, MO has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for June 2018!

IMG_0423_EDITThis ADA compliant lift is part of a renovation project for the Indigo Hotel in downtown Kansas, located in a historic 12-story tower originally constructed in the 1930’s.

For this project an Xpress 2 Indoor Inclined Lift was chosen to save as much usable floor space as possible and fit easily into the pre-existing stairway. This lift now enables accessible access between the main lobby and the lounge.

Did you know that custom RAL paint colors can be used to allow a lift to blend into its surroundings? This project is a perfect example of an accessibility application that does just that. The custom RAL color matches the wall perfectly to create the appearance of a wider staircase and provide an attractive and clean finish.
