Thank you to Phil Kean of the Phil Kean Design Group for this update on the progress of The New American Home 2017. Once again, we are thrilled to be able to showcase a Garaventa Home Elevator in this prestigious show home for the International Builders Show.
Congratulations to our friends down under at PR King & Sons. They have captured the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for May, 2016.
This is an installation of an Elvoron LULA limited use limited application elevator, made by Garaventa Lift and installed by P.R. King & Sons. The application showcases the optional glass 2-speed sliding doors.
The building is the Eileen O’Connor Catholic College in Lewisham, Australia.
Eileen Rosaline O’Connor was an Australian Nun, who devoted her life in service to those less fortunate. In 1913, she founded the Society of Our Lady’s Nurses for the Poor from the bedroom of her home in Coogee.
Remarkably, she sustained a serious back injury when she was only three years old, resulting in a lifelong disability and constant pain. She was only 28 years old when she died. She may not have lived a long lifetime, but her example continues to inspire others today. She is considered a counted Servant of God, meaning that she is under consideration by the Catholic Church for possible canonization into sainthood.
The institution bearing her name has as one of its aims, “to provide a stimulating education designed to develop the whole student that enriches them socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually, creatively, morally and spiritually.” We are proud that the people in charge of the college chose Garaventa Lift and PR King & Sons to provide their new LULA Elevator.

GARAVENTA LIFT ANNOUNCES NEW HOME ELEVATOR DOOR PACKAGES
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.
