LULA Elevator with Glass Doors

ThisLimited use limited application elevator with glass doors 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.
