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.
Congratulations to Neil Hankin, Brian Trueman, David Lair and the rest of the crew at Hankin Specialty Elevators. Their submission of photos from Decorative Plumbing Supply in San Carlos, California has been named the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for February, 2017.
Typically, inclined lifts are installed as part of a renovation. The lifts are often required to bring commercial spaces in to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) before the business is granted an Occupancy Permit and is allowed to open to the public.
In this case the owners of DPS, Jeffrey and Diane Steves, decided to proactively improve accessibility within their stylish studio. The lift is painted a custom shade of black to blend in with the surrounding stair railings.
