March Project of the Month

We have a new project of the month courtesy of Adam Bey of Handel & Son Elevator/Lift Co in Ohio.

Genesis Vertical Platform Lift

The Genesis Vertical Platform Lift was installed at the JACK Thistledown Racino (Casino and Race Track) in Northfield, North Randall, Ohio for a disabled employee who was returning to work. The employee needed secure access to the upper level of the casino, which is an employee only work area previously only accessible via a stairway.

A custom cream frame color was requested to match the mouldings, along with operators and a flip-up seat. A nice touch to the lift is the smoke tinted plexi-glass panels which help further match the dark aesthetic of the casino.

In addition to all of these customizations, a tight deadline to have the project ready for the employee’s return made this a logistically fun and interesting project for the Handel & Son Elevator team.

Genesis Outdoor Vertical Platform Lift

Thank you to Dan Zammar and Access Elevator and Lifts for this magnificent customized tthree-level outdoor Genesis Enclosure installation that has earned them the Project of the Month title for February 2019.

Genesis Outdoor Vertical Platform Lift

This vertical platform lift is installed at a Bank of America Branch in Overland Park, Kansas. The bank is in a small town, with a limited budget and wanted a cost-effective way to provide better accessibility for its customers. They considered an elevator indoors, but the cost and amount of valuable floor space consumed were prohibitive. An outdoor Genesis Lift provided a great low cost alternative that would provide better accessibility from both the sidewalk level and parking level while preserving the floor space of the bank.

The lift has a number of customizations. It features tower supports due to lack of a nearby tieback location. Two beautiful bridges on different levels were constructed with custom railings that include sleek glass sidewalls. The bridges are more complicated than the typical project in that they are freestanding and supported by footings, and the lower level features a right angle turn. Other features of the project include power doors on the lift, an ADA compliant 42×60 platform, a sloped roof, and a fan and vent with mast heater to make the lift comfortable in any season.

Special thanks to Josh Solis, our in-house designer, as well as our fabrication shop for making this unconventional installation happen.

Modern Walnut Residential Elevator

AEL Logo Plate

Our thanks and appreciation go out to Ryan Anglim and the rest of the great crew at Access Elevator and Lifts Inc, NE. Their submission of photos of the Elvoron MR installation has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for December, 2018.

This elevator is the definition of a high quality and luxury product. Notice how the walnut finish matches the surrounding structure, creating a sense of unity and comfort. In addition, the premium fixtures and COP add contrast, while the walnut finish compliments the modern aesthetic of the interior.

Also, the wooden panels surround the elevator enclosure on all three floors of the home creating dimension and a mid-century modern design. This project is undeniably the work of a very knowledgeable and professional buyer and fit for the home of an architect.
