Harmar expands residential elevator line
SARASOTA, Fla., Sept. 24, 2012—Residential elevators are enjoying a boom as seniors consider their choices for aging in place. Harmar recently introduced a second Everest elevator line, the Elite, expanding its capabilities to handle even more new construction and renovation projects.
The Everest Elite features a roped hydraulic drive, while the original Everest is a counter-weighted in-line gear model. For comfort and quiet operation, both Everest and Elite employ a Quiet Drive System with Soft Start and Soft Stop technology.
“Custom homebuilders have long included elevators in luxury homes,” says Harmar President Chad Williams, “But there was a need for a custom elevator solution that would fit easily into a mainstream residential footprint. Our engineers built Everest from the ground up, using proven drive systems, with an efficient design that offers safe, simple, yet custom solutions for today’s homeowner.”
Everest offers the latest in features from a color LED touchscreen with interactive controls to contemporary stainless steel trim that compliments a wide selection of wall panels, hand rails, door sill and ceiling options. Top-mounted motor and electric controllers eliminate the need for a separate machine room, allowing the unit to fit more easily into smaller homes and existing spaces for renovations.
The Everest Elite is designed to offer more features and upgraded interiors than the Everest. However, both offer the homeowner a range of choices in colors, wood veneers, lighting and trim finishes to fit their décor.
