Garaventa Lift Releases a Machine Room-less Elevator Drive System for the Elvoron

Garaventa Lift is very excited to officially announce the release of the Garaventa Lift MR (Machine Room-Less) Home Elevator. The MR features a well established encoder made in Germany. It also features the same motor that we have used for years in the Artira (Inclined Platform Lift), so it has been tested and proven in the field. The 8lb T-Rails with generous spacing provide rigidity, stability, and a smooth ride. Combine it with our industry-leading 7 year extended warranty and the MR is an excellent choice for any residential project.

Thyssen-Krupp Access Shocks Accessibility Contractors by Closing Doors

On Wednesday August 22nd 2012, Thyssen-Krupp Access announced that they would no longer be accepting orders for new wheelchair lifts or home elevators.

For many of us in the accessibility industry, this announcement came as a big surprise. After all, TKA has been one of the industry giants for decades. All across the USA, dealers, architects and home builders were using products such as the LEV or Destiny Home Elevators, the Journey or Supra Inclined Platform Lifts or the TK Porch Lift or NWOV Vertical Lifts. Those people will now have to make alternative plans.

So what should architects and builders do? Garaventa Lift and our dealer partners are here to help. For decades, Garaventa Lift has benefitted from having partnerships with many of the most successful accessibility and home elevator contractors in the USA. The strength of our nationwide network of partners enables us to ensure that every phase of your accessibility or home elevator project will proceed smoothly.

If you require job-specific drawings, we offer free drawings on a fast turn around. Should you require assistance converting your project to a Garaventa Lift project, we make it simple.
