Last year, Handi-Lift worked with the Dinaco Contracting Corporation to install an enclosure vertical platform lift at the Gateway Battery Park City Apartment building. A Garaventa Genesis Enclosure vertical platform lift was installed outside a second-floor balcony under an overhang. The two-stop lift includes full outdoor features with a plexiglass dome on the top. This full-height enclosure has a full-height door at the upper landing with power door operators. Users get on and off the lift on the same side of the enclosure. A U‑brace secures the lift to the building for extra structural support. The Genesis lift delivers accessibility to several offices located on the lower floors of the apartment building.
The greatest challenge we overcame was the low overhead clearance at the lower landing entry.
Planning for this project began in 2019, but it was delayed until 2022.
