461 Central Park West is a post-war mid-rise elevator building in Manhattan Valley, NY. Apartments in this rental building feature standard amenities and services, however, a platform lift installation was sorely needed. A leading supplier of quality accessibility devices in New York, DAY Elevator & Lift installed the Savaria V-1504 wheelchair platform lift to improve accessibility in this building.

The Challenge

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates that easy access is ensured in public buildings for people with disabilities. To stay compliant, building owners have to make sure that the appropriate mobility equipment is in place to assist such people.

The challenge was to make 461 Central Park West accessible to wheelchair users. The equipment chosen had to be safe, efficient, and totally reliable ensuring smooth access to the different floors.

The Solution

Our team of skilled technicians installed Savaria’s V-1504 wheelchair platform lift for this client. With a load capacity of 750lb/340kg, Savaria V-1504 vertical platform lift features a smooth start, stop and overall ride that work dependably. Driven by a reliable hydraulic system, the lift travels up and down a rail system enclosed in the lift tower so no machine room is needed.

From the rugged outdoors to the most luxurious office tower lobbies, the Savaria V-1504 lift is a great option with its reliable performance, ease of use, and range of finish options. On-board controls operate the lift easily with constant pressure. Optional call/send stations can be added with or without key access.
