Overview

Swiss Chalet is an award winning bakeshop / cafe in Morristown, New Jersey. This shop offers a wide array of desserts & pastries, plus breakfast & lunch eats. An experienced hand in the accessibility equipment supply and installation industry, DAY Elevator & Lift assisted this firm with the installation of a Savaria Prolift vertical platform lift that successfully addressed the challenge they had – wheelchair access to basement and deliveries.

The Challenge

The ADA recognizes that for people with disabilities to participate in the everyday activities in their communities, they must have easy access to the goods and services provided by businesses. However, many business facilities were built without features that accommodate people with disabilities, including people who use wheelchairs. This lack of accessibility makes it impossible for many people to take part in everyday activities such as going to work, eating in a restaurant or shopping in a store.

Swiss Chalet Bakery needed to improve wheelchair access to their basement & deliveries, and contacted our team with this requirement.

The Solution

Our skilled team of technicians installed Savaria Prolift vertical platform lift in the hoistway, which was decided upon as the ideal solution for this client. This durably constructed ADA-compliant lift operates with simple-to-use constant pressure from a hydraulic drive that delivers a smooth and quiet ride, making it feel like a traditional elevator. Safety features in this lift include emergency alarm and stop buttons, emergency battery back-up for cab lighting, alarm and lowering, and car top stop switch.
