Centerpiece LULA Enclosure wins October POM

DSCN3418This month, we are sending our appreciation and support to Handi-Lift Inc. of Carlstadt, New Jersey.  Congratulations to Bob Grigorov, James Boydston and the rest of the great professionals at Handi-Lift.  Their installation of a LULA Elevator DSCN3481 (640x360)at the Mediterraneo restaurant in White Plains, NY has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for October, 2017.

DSCN3449 (640x360)The elevator is a three-stop unit installed right in the middle of this new modern and upscale restaurant.  It is a very impressive installation.  The location of the elevator within the establishment ensures it is seen as an architectural centerpiece.  The elevator was supplied with a custom-colored aluminum and glass enclosure by Garaventa.  The elevator cab is also aluminum and glass.

The top landing is connected to the top seating area by a beautiful catwalk.  The view from this area is spectacular, since all of the exterior walls are made from tinted glass panels.

Garaventa BC Wins POM with CPL Vertical Lift

The Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for December, 2016 has now been selected. Congratulations to Don Sanchez, Barry Sherman and the rest of the folks at Garaventa Lift BC in Port Moody for capturing their second Project of the Month honors. Their installation of a Garaventa Elvoron CPL Vertical Platform Lift at Open Road Land Rover and Jaguar in Langley, BC is the winner!

This marks the first time that an Elvoron CPL vertical platform lift installation has been showcased. We figured it was about time we gave the CPL some love. A notoriously difficult product to capture in photos, the CPL represents the most robust, durable vertical platform lift available. Also, it features the look and feel of a full-cab elevator, but with constant-pressure controls. img_6362-2Entrances are guarded by steel fire-rated hallway doors, controlled by the lift to ensure safety.Elvoron CPL vertical platform lift

Although popular in Canada for decades, full-cab vertical platform lifts are also becoming more popular in various other regions of the world. They provide an alternative to standard vertical lifts which have platforms with half-height sidewalls and no ceilings. img_6367-2They are especially popular for applications such as this one – an automotive dealership with the Parts and Service Departments located on the mezzanine.

In this case, the use of a CPL could also represent an economical alternative to a LULA elevator, as it would be about half the price to install and requires much less maintenance than a LULA.
