Vertical Platform Lifts – Where Are We Wednesdays (08/15/2018)​

Vertical Platform Lifts
Where Are We Wednesdays (08/15/2018)

Happy Wednesday Folks!

The top picture is of Dogwood Canyon, near Lampe on the Missouri/Arkansas line.  It is a 10,000 acre Nature Park, boasting various outdoor activities.  Senior Technician Ron is there today to service the Symmetry Vertical Platform Lift Country Home Elevator installed in the General Store.  CHE also installed the Symmetry Limited Use/Limited Access Elevator at the Bike Barn. 

The bottom picture on the left was taken by Lead Technician Adam in Ladue, Missouri.  He is replacing a valve on a hydraulic elevator, as well as the piping.  Piping diameter is very specific in elevator code, and must be updated to comply if originally installed incorrectly.  This is an example of why it is important to have a State Licensed Elevator Contractor, like Country Home Elevator, install any and all mobility equipment.

The next two pictures were taken by Technician Ivan’s crew in Kimberling City, Missouri.  They are installing a Symmetry Vertical Platform Lift in a church.  A vertical platform lift is a cost-effective way to add wheelchair accessibility to your home or public facility. Generally, vertical platform lifts are more space-conscious and visually appealing than ramps. Platform lifts can be outdoor or indoor, enclosed or open, stationary or portable, for maximum flexibility.  This lift was installed in a closet that was converted to a hoistway.  The enclosed lift platform and drive tower are located within the hoistway, while each landing opens through a doorway that is locked while the car is in service. The church was happy to add this economic lift to meet ADA compliance with little construction costs. 

Our crews are also in Warrensburg, Warsaw, Houston, St. Marys, Pomona, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Branson today.  If you see one of our trucks feel free to tag us on Facebook using #countryhomeelevator or #wherearewewednesdays

Happy Wednesday Folks!

Installation Manager Bill, Lead Technician Adam, and Technician Austin are in Springfield, Missouri uninstalling two out-of-service elevators for Bass Pro Shops.  They sent in the two pictures on the left, Wonders of Wildlife can be seen in the background of the first.  Although uncommon, mobility equipment removals are one of the services we offer.

The top middle picture was taken by Senior Technician Ron, he and Technician Ivan are also in Springfield today.  They met up with a Savaria Factory Rep, and are completing on the job factory training with a Savaria Telecab.  Continuing Education is not only important for crew efficiency, it is actually required by State and National Standards. 

Our newest employee, Technician Jake, sent in the bottom middle picture from Branson, Missouri.  He is on a service call for a Stannah Stair Lift.  Welcome to the team Jake!

The final two pictures were sent in by Sales Consultant John while in Osage Beach, Missouri.  Several weeks ago, our crews finished the installation of a Symmetry Vertical Platform Lift at Dog Days Bar and Grille.  This lift services three levels, the boat dock, the pool, and the restaurant.  The lift is in such a beautiful spot John was excited to see the final product. 

Our crews are also in Jefferson City, Kansas City, Leawood, Oak Grove, Ottawa, Oklahoma City, Orongo, Eureka Springs, Bolivar, Nixa, and Luther today.  If you see one of our trucks feel free to tag us on Facebook using #countryhomeelevator or #wherearewewednesdays

Happy Wednesday Folks!

Starting with the top two pictures, Senior Technician Ron and Technician Ivan joined Oklahoma Technician Owen in Skiatook, Oklahoma this week.  They are installing a Symmetry Home Elevator that will service three floors for the future homeowner.  In the top right picture, Technician Ivan and Technician Owen are setting the elevator cab before installing the cartop. 

Each year, our technicians are required to complete a minimum of eight hours of factory training.  This training is crucial to maintain our expertise over the equipment we install/service, and to keep up to date with new safety features.  Installation Manager Bill, Lead Technician Adam, and Oklahoma Operations Manager Jim are all in Peoria, Illinois attending the CET/CAT approved course “Vertical Platform Lift Installation and Troubleshooting”.  This class is being held at the Symmetry Elevating Solutions factory, and spans over two days.  The bottom left picture is of their morning classroom training, and the bottom right picture is of their hands-on training.  Recognize the lift?  This is an unenclosed version of the vertical platform lifts they worked on in last week’s Where Are We Wednesdays post.

Our crews are also in St. Louis, Olathe, Lawson, and Parkville today.  If you see one of our trucks feel free to tag us on Facebook using #countryhomeelevator or #wherearewewednesdays

Happy Wednesday Folks!

Starting on the left, Arkansas Technician Dustin is servicing a Vertical Platform Lift in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  This model was manufactured by Symmetry Elevating Solutions, and is enclosed in a hoistway.  These lifts can be used indoors as well. 

Kansas City Technician Darren and Technician Ivan are in Mission Hills, Kansas today installing the Symmetry Home Elevator featured in the middle on the top.  This elevator has an enterprise gate, which replaced the scissor style gate.  Scissor style gates can be flimsy and create shear hazards, they are no longer nationally code compliant.  The enterprise gate has a similar aesthetic, but with enhanced safety features.

The final pictures on the bottom middle and the right were taken by Lead Technician Adam in Osage Beach, Missouri today.  They are installing a Symmetry Vertical Platform Lift at the Dog Days Bar and Grille.  The had to use a crane to get the lift in, but now that it is fully installed it will service the boat dock, the pool, and the restaurant at the top.  In the final picture Technician Jesse is doing a final run to verify that the lift is installed properly.  This process is repeated many times before crews leave a job site.

Our crews are also in Lenexa, Golden, Tulsa, Sedalia, Mt Vernon, Edmond, Oklahoma City, and Warsaw today.  If you see one of our trucks feel free to tag us on Facebook using #countryhomeelevator or #wherearewewednesdays

Happy Wednesday Folks!

Starting on the top left, Kansas City Technician Darren snapped a selfie with Senior Installation Technician Ron in the background.  They are in Prairie Village, Kansas today installing a Savaria Telecab.  Although Country Home Elevator primarily installs Symmetry Elevating Solutions lifts, we are licensed dealers of most, if not all, residential lifts.  We strive to offer as many options as possible, so homeowners can find their perfect fit.

The middle picture was sent in today by Arkansas Technician Dustin.  He is in Fort Smith, Arkansas evaluating older Inclinator Elevators for potential safety updates and modernization.  This picture is of a machine room, something that is antiquated with today’s residential elevators.  Even some commercial elevators are MRL (Machine Roomless), with all the elevator components contained in the hoistway.

Oklahoma Operations Manager Jim took the top right picture at Urban Johnnies in Oklahoma City.  They have a Symmetry Hydraulic Vertical Platform Lift that needed servicing.  Vertical Platform Lifts are ideal for customers who want to meet ADA requirements, but do not have a usage need for a full elevator.  This vertical platform lift is in a hoistway, but they can also be unenclosed. 

The bottom picture on the left was taken by Installation Manager Bill in Springfield, Missouri.  He is doing a site visit on a project that will soon house a Symmetry Home Elevator.  During these site visits the pre-wiring is completed, and our staff are available onsite to answer any questions the contractor/builder/homeowner may have.

The last picture on the bottom right was taken by Technician Ivan in West Plains, Missouri.  He completed a Stannah Sienna Stair Lift installation and is now doing a homeowner demonstration.  These stair lifts are installed in just a few short hours, providing a quick and easy accessibility solution for customers.

Our crews are also in Blue Eye, Lampe, Eureka Springs, Holiday Island, Lake Ozark, Climax Springs, Mission Hills, Clarksville, Ava, Bella Vista, Bentonville, and Monett today.  If you see one of our trucks feel free to tag us on Facebook using #countryhomeelevator or #wherearewewednesdays

Where Are We Wednesdays (01/17/2018)

Happy Wednesday Folks!

The first picture on the top left was taken by Sales Consultant Amy from our Kansas City Office.  Amy deeply cares for our customers, and is always going the extra mile to make sure that they receive top notch care. Country Home Elevator is currently renovating an elevator in Leawood, Kansas; and since Amy sold it a few years ago she decided to visit the jobsite to check on the progress.

The next picture was taken by our Senior Technician Ron in Branson, Missouri.  Our crews have been working through this blizzard all week, braving the cold and icy roads.  When the crews left out this morning, it was -7 degrees!  Thank you Teams for your dedication, we really appreciate you!

Our Arkansas Technician Dustin is featured in the next picture, he is prepping hydraulic piping for an elevator installation.  Elevator cabs come in a few standard sizes, depending on the need of the customer, but the hoistways they fit in do not typically conform to the exact measurements of the drawings.  This is why there are nil used elevators on the market, they are custom built to fit in each hoistway.

The middle picture to the left was taken by our Oklahoma Operations Manager Jim.  He is in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma today working on Symmetry Vertical Platform Lift.  Vertical Platform Lifts (VPLs for short), are truly the most versatile product we carry.  They can be outdoor or indoor, enclosed or open, stationary or portable, for maximum flexibility.

The final two pictures were taken by our Lead Technician Adam of the jobsite in Branson, Missouri.  His crew joined Ron’s crew to install a Canton Elevator at The 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.

Our crews are also in Sullivan, Lees Summit, Pleasant Hill, Kansas City, and Osage Beach today.  If you see one of our trucks feel free to tag us on Facebook using #countryhomeelevator or #wherearewewednesdays
