SPINDEL RESIDENCE
STAIRWAY CHAIR LIFT

This lift is a curving seat lift Model 260 made by the Stannah Company. It was specifically designed to fit in this beautiful private home.

NEW YORK UNIVERSITY - VANDERBILT LAW SCHOOL, NEW YORK CITY
CUSTOM VERTICAL PLATFORM LIFT

This low rise lift is a free standing unit with a statuary bronze and glass car and enclosure installed in an existing building. The stairs and floor were cut out to make room for the lift eliminating the need for a ramp. Under the cladding is a steel frame that supports the lift tower so that it does not need to be tied back to a wall. For the entrances we used floor closers and handmade bronze offset pivots along with custom pull handles. The hall stations are custom etched and finished to match as well.

CANALI, MADISON AVE., NEW YORK CITY
CUSTOM VERTICAL PLATFORM LIFT

This high end men’s fashion retailer wanted a lift in the core of their stair tower that would blend in with their finishes and fit in the core of the stairway. This tall enclosure is polished stainless and glass with the lift tower wrapped in millwork. The power door operators needed on this job are in the floor so the entrances can be glass from floor to ceiling. The offset pivots with support hidden in the ceiling and floor minimize hardware.

BOYDSTON RESIDENCE
PRIVATE RESIDENCE ELEVATOR

This home elevator is a three stop with a roped hydraulic drive system serving the basement, the family room and the master bedroom. The wrap around power car gate gives access to the full width of the large 15 sq. ft. car. It makes it easy to carry bulky items into the elevator. A high quality home elevator is a great addition to the home and comes in handy with older relatives who come to visit or in this case come to live with you. This elevator has served this family for 5 years with 10-15 trips a day without a single shut down.

610 WEST END AVENUE
TURNING INCLINED PLATFORM LIFT

This residential tower has twin marble stairs leading to elevators serving two sides of the building. Accessibility with Dignity was achieved using Inclined Platform Lifts with structural support hidden in the walls behind the finishes to minimize the impact on the beautiful lobby. These lifts allow the end user to disembark straight ahead at the bottom and then fold up and turn the corner storing out of the way. Controls were located at the doorman’s station so he can provide assistance when needed to bring the lift to the boarding position.

BRASS MONKEY
LULA (LIMITED USE, LIMITED APPLICATION) ELEVATOR

This three stop LULA service three levels of a restaurant in New York City. A LULA elevator is basically a small version of a commercial elevator with all the same features. The advantage is that the LULA has smaller foot print, lower power consumption and reduced overhead and pit requirements. The LULA is limited to 25 feet of travel, a speed of 30 feet per minute, no more than 1400#s capacity and 18 square feet maximum of floor space. The LULA gives the end user the one touch (momentary) control of a commercial elevator and powered entrances for ease of use.

300 EAST 51ST STREET, NEW YORK CITY
CUSTOM VERTICAL PLATFORM LIFT

This residential tower with a doorman needed a new lift in a very small space that would not detract from the design of the refurbished lobby. The lift tower is wrapped in matching millwork and the glass balustrade is integrated into the lift door and gate. Floor closers and intermediate pivots allowed bare edge glass to be exposed on all four sides at the top. The cladding is blackened steel. This lift gets used many times daily.

GATEWAY TOWER
STANDARD VERTICAL PLATFORM LIFT

This lift serves the pool area of a high rise residential tower in New York City. The lift includes a standard enclosure system by the lift manufacture. It is designed for exterior use. A low voltage power door operator is included on the lower entrance due to the lack of latch clearance approaching the entrance. You can upgrade this type of enclosure system very easily by switching to laminated safety glass instead of Plexiglas and custom painting the lift to match the surrounding finish.
