Hawaiian Vertical Lift named POM

HUOC1A recent installation of a vertical lift at The Hawaiian United Okinawa Association Center in Waipahu, Hawaii has been named the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for April, 2016.

The Association has an interesting history. It is a large organization of over 40, 000 members and acts as an umbrella group for 50 member clubs statewide.HUOC3 The Association, formed in 1951, played an important role in the Okinawa recovery efforts following the Second World War by sending clothes, livestock and other essentials. In fact, Okinawa (Japan’s southernmost island) was governed by the United States military from the end of WWII to 1972, when it was returned to Japan. During this time, The United Okinawan Association was acknowledged as the official representative of the Okinawan people in Hawaii.

The member clubs of the HUOA are made up of people whose ancestors immigrated to Hawaii from Okinawa. The aim of the Association is to, “preserve, perpetuate and promote the culture of Okinawa.”

GARAVENTA LIFT ANNOUNCES NEW HOME ELEVATOR DOOR PACKAGES

3-speed glass and stainless home elevator doors

Garaventa Lift is thrilled to announce the release of our new 3-speed side sliding elevator doors for home elevators. This new option will allow home owners and builders to create the same look and feel on their home elevator as a standard commercial passenger elevator.

Buyers can choose from three door packages:

The Standard Door Package features an accordion car gate and swinging hall doors by others. This arrangement has been the industry standard for years and continues to be available.

The Upgrade Door Package includes a 3-speed sliding elevator car door with swinging hall doors by others. This allows for the use of a swinging hall door which matches the other doors in the home. The accordion gate used in the Standard Door Package is replaced by a 3-speed automatic sliding elevator door for the cab.

The Premium Door Package includes 3-speed sliding elevator doors for both the cab and the hall doors. As the elevator approaches a landing, the car door engages with the hall door. Both doors slide open simultaneously, the same familiar way that sliding doors work on a commercial elevator.

The new 3-speed sliding elevator doors were revealed at the recent 2016 International Builders Show in Las Vegas to rave reviews. Plans are already underway to include Garaventa Home Elevators in the 2017 New American Home and the 2017 New American Remodeled Home.
