Product Descriptions

Genesis Enclosure Model

The Enclosure Model is a complete, self-contained vertical platform lift consisting of a drive mast, passenger platform, doors/gates and factory manufactured walls that enclose the lift. No need to be concerned with the construction of a hoistway (also known as a shaftway).

This style of lift can normally be installed without the need for extensive site modifications. The enclosure itself features an attractive extruded aluminum frame and panels made of steel, Plexiglas or safety glass. Custom materials, colors and graphics are also available.

  • Complete, self-contained vertical lift.
  • Rated load - 340 kg (750lbs).
  • Choice of seven lifting heights ( Hydraulic Drive ).
  • Choice of three lifting height ( Leadscrew Drive ).
  • 90°, 180° and 360° degree entry/exit configurations.
  • Two or three stops.

Genesis Shaftway Model (Hoistway)

The Genesis Shaftway Model fits inside a vertical runway (also known as a hoistway or shaftway) that is built by others in accordance to Garaventa Lift specifications. This vertical platform lift consists of a drive mast, passenger platform, doors and gates.

The hoistway at the uppermost landing can be protected by a gate and surrounding hoistway walls that are only 42" tall. Another alternative is to put a full height door (80" tall) on the lift entrance and extend the surrounding walls to the ceiling. In cases where children or teens may be frequenting the area, it is advisable to enclose the uppermost landing completely, even if this exceeds minimum code requirements.
