Times Square - Modern and versatile

Determine your modern look. Choose from warm or cool colours to create a fresh look or combine the options to enhance contrast for more depth. Use a bare car option to create your style and taste. Times Square adds distinctive features to any public, commercial or residential building.

Park Avenue - Sophisticated and elegant

The optional wave design, a rounded transition from ceiling to rear wall, gives your car a unique appearance. An additional highlight is a gold or silver shimmer from our metallic glass collection or a brushed bronze or satinated grey finish on stainless steel. Matched lighting perfects the stylish design of this lift – an ideal fit for representative buildings like high-end residential, hotels and offices.

Sunset Boulevard - Inspirational

Handrails

Even though your lift travels smoothly, handrails convey a feeling of security. Stainless steel handrails match the interior and shapes of your car and can be mounted to the side and rear walls. Illuminated handrails and skirting enhance the overall ambiance of the car as well.
