Project of the Month Feb 2019

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 Genesis Enclosure Application in Missouri

Also, notice how the white finish accompanying the glass panels create a modern aesthetic. The glass panels allow natural light to enter and brighten up the space. Another benefit is that it allows the passenger to enjoy the surrounding view while occupying the lift.

Can you spot the Genesis Enclosure elevator? This project is a perfect example of an accessibility application that blends in with its environment. The champagne aluminum extrusions closely match the beige siding on the building providing an aesthetically pleasing installation.

The Seven Oaks Country Club offers community events, a fitness center and other opportunities for homeowners to socialize with other residents. The Genesis Enclosure Elevator is a great addition to the community center and it will provide a fully code-complaint accessibility solution.
