Our congratulations and appreciation go out to Tom Sena, Neil Hankin, Brian Trueman, David Lair and the rest of the great team at Hankin Specialty Elevator of Rancho Cordova, California. Their submission of photos from a new business park in South San Francisco, California has earned them another Garaventa Lift Project of the Month, this one for November, 2017.
The installation is a beautiful example of modern accessibility to a open mezzanine area using a Genesis Enclosure vertical platform wheelchair lift. The lift is a fully code-compliant accessibility solution, easy to use and practical. The model being used is a Genesis Enclosure GVL-EN-144, mounted in a 3″ pit to allow for level access at the lower landing. Everything about the lift is pretty standard, except that the architect chose to have the lift painted an optional RAL color (RAL 9003).
Their submission of photos from the Nixon Residnce in Park City has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for April, 2017.
The installation features an Elvoron hydraulic drive elevator with an aluminum and glass cab. The aluminum framing for the cab is painted black and the fixtures are standard brushed stainless steel. The Car Operating Panel (COP) features the optional integrated hands-free telephone, and the cab gate is powered to open and close automatically.
The hoistway walls also feature large panels of laminated safety glass to allow passengers to enjoy the view outside as they are traveling between floors.
Our thanks and congratulations go out to all of the fine folks at Access Elevator in Lifts. Their installation of a stainless steel Artira has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for March, 2017.
The new lift replaces a Savaria Omega that “never worked”, according to local newspaper reports, Articles featured the struggles of wheelchair-bound family members who could not visit their relatives because of the faulty lift.
