Our thanks and appreciation go out to António Leitão and the rest of the great crew at Rocargo Tecnomobile in Portugal. Their submission of photos from the indoor GSL Artira application in Lisbon has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for September 2018.
Notice how precisely the guide tubes are aligned with the handcrafted, and radiating staircase. This application has been engineered to perfection. Also, the standard satin grey finish contrasts with the maple finish of the staircase yet matches the surrounding walls to create a sense of unity. As well, the Artira will fit into most existing stairways, with minimal or no modification required. Therefore, a staircase such as this one can be preserved without having to be removed.
This Artira installation has been modified for personal use in a home. It has manual controls and a smaller platform than an ADA compliant commercial application. Therefore, it is a versatile and space-saving option in one’s residence. In addition, the size of the ramp has been customized/increased to provide a safe exit on the upper landing. With the installation of the GSL Artira, the client has access to all three floors in their home.
