Throughout the years, we’ve helped residents and businesses with access issues. Although the basic need is similar for each job, every property and customer is different.. That’s why we create custom solutions for the hillside lifts we make. Here are just two examples of the custom solutions we’ve provided in the past.
Through the years, Hill Hiker® has built a number of outdoor lift systems all over the world. Each one offered a unique challenge, and we eagerly rose to every occasion. Here are two interesting projects we built in the past. Each involves a lengthy track of about 300 feet, stretching across some difficult terrain.
Most funiculars have the primary purpose of getting users from point A to point B, but who’s to say the journey can’t be fun? Many of the hillside lift systems we create offer stunning views from a bird’s eye view. It’s easy for riders to sit back and enjoy the scenery from the comfort of their seat as they descend at a safe speed.
Not too long ago we looked at the history of inclined elevators, tracking the 500 hundred year journey from the oldest funicular to the modern systems we make. Although the first funicular was made 500 years ago, the inclined elevator still has a lot more history, particularly the ancient inventions that led to the compound machine we have today.
Even for outdoor residential elevators code compliance is very important. You will want to be sure your friends, family and anyone riding the elevator are going to be safe. Code compliance ensures owners that their elevators have been designed and tested to meet strict safety standards giving you peace of mind. Not to mention your exterior residential elevator is an investment, and should a storm or other calamity strike it, you’ll want it covered. Before your insurance determines whether or not to include any piece of property in your home owner’s insurance, it’ll need to pass applicable codes. Here are just a few of the necessary codes your inclined lift will likely need to meet or exceed.
We need to carefully tailor our inclined lifts to their surrounding environment to ensure the product not only operates safely , but lasts for years to come. Hill Hiker® does this through their unique process created and perfected by our skilled professionals. Here is a quick look at the people who make our inclined lifts.
The Outdoor Lifts
Facing the everyday elements for a number of outdoor lifts can be a true challenge. That’s why Hill Hiker® custom builds each of their outdoor lifts with the toughest components designed to withstand all weather conditions. Here are just a few of the environments where you’ll find our outdoor lifts thriving.
Although you can find Hill Hiker’s inclined elevators all over the world–three continents, nine countries and 32 US States and territories–they all come from our factory in Midwestern America. For 20 years, we’ve committed to building quality, American-made products users throughout the world can trust. Here’s a quick look at how we do it. Read More
