Where Are We Wednesdays (02/14/2018)
Happy Valentine’s Day Folks!
Lead Technician Adam is running service and maintenance visits today, he sent in the two pictures on the left. This Symmetry Home Elevator in St. James, Missouri has spectacular views! Although the elevator was placed in the interior of the home, the homeowners requested an elevator cab with a window. The hoistway wall also has windows, on the first floor are views of the wine cellar and on the second floor (pictured) there are views of the stained glass and water. Elevators must have one enclosed wall for the rails, but the other three walls can be used as door or glass options. The showroom elevator at the Corporate Office in Brighton, Missouri is interior with use of windows, similar to this one. Walk-in showings are always welcome during regular business hours, and after hours showings can be done by appointment.
The top picture on the right features Austin, he is also running service and maintenance visits today. He is testing an Inclined Platform Lift at Sullivan Schools in Sullivan, Missouri. Inclined Platform Lifts (IPLs) are lifts that can be installed directly on the stairs. They have a fold down seat, what Austin is sitting on, or wheelchairs can directly roll on them. These lifts are an economic alternative to traditional Commercial Elevators, they do not require extra space.
Oklahoma Operations Manager Jim sent in the middle picture on the right while servicing a Waupaca Home Elevator in Skiatook, Oklahoma. This is the elevator controller, the electric component of the elevator that operates the system. This is just part of the controller, an example of why it is important to have a factory trained service technician for any repairs.
Installation Manager Bill sent in the last picture. He is with Warehouse Manager Tom delivering another Canton Elevator to the jobsite at Grand Country Inn in Branson, Missouri. As mentioned a few weeks ago on a previous Canton Elevator installation at Grand Country Inn, Canton Elevators have a capacity ranging from 2000 to 3500 pounds, they are the largest elevators we currently offer. They are perfect for many commercial installations, and can be configured to carry either freight or passengers. Luckily today it is warmer than the -7 degree temps they soldiered through in January!
