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.
The 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.
This 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.
Our thanks and appreciation go out to Dan Zammer 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!
This 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.
Our thanks and appreciation go out to Trever Hill, Ken Turpin and the rest of the great crew at Upper Canada Elevator, Ottawa. Their submission of photos of an Elvoron Residential elevator in Ottawa has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for May, 2018.
Notice the bright gold COP and hall stations. In addition, the client chose brushed brass handrails to avoid the appearance of fingerprints.
The departure from the typical nickel finish on the gate hardware is one of the other things that makes this application unique. The bronze gate hardware matches the door and frame while providing contrast. Antique white panels have been installed in the accordion gate to match the rustic elegance of the stone wall.
The elevator also features maple raised panel cabin walls and ceiling. They provide a warm and welcoming ambience.
