In mid-August, Margaret Schleiff was painting the interior of a lift that has been installed in Mason Mansion that will provide access to the second and third floors, removing an invisible barrier. “Nine years later, this is the last phase,” she said. To meet city and fire codes, a tower for a staircase and lift were added on the rear of the house.
Since the hoistway is open, the exterior walls are constructed of fire-rated materials. The 1400 lb. constant pressure lift provides accessibility while keeping the integrity of the existing roof line of the home.
The Symmetry Hybrid platform lift, looks and feels like an elevator, but operates like a lift. Available in many different sizes and configurations, features include a full height car, non-load bearing ceiling, and a wide variety of optional features and finishes. Customize the doors and car to match the style and decor of your commercial facility or home.
