When you enter a luxury antique building with an elevator, you expect to discover a very old vintage lift that may not even work properly. Yet surprisingly, after experiencing a smooth and safe ride, you realize that the elegant antique lift is made with modern equipment.
The golden age of elevators is a bygone era where they were rare and expensive for the residential market. Houses that had them were very elaborate, created with handcrafted wrought Iron and medallion features on the walls. They were not only a unique form of transportation within a home but a thing of beauty and a lovely spectacle to talk about and marvel over.
Fast forward to the 21st century, and the elevator lift technology that is available today has transformed elevator design. Now, it is possible to have the best of both worlds. A vintage lift, maintaining a unique sense of history transporting you back in time can now be combined with modern lift equipment, ensuring a smooth ride to the top with all the latest in bells and whistles. Roys Rise specializes in designing and manufacturing antique elevators that retain all the charm of a duplicate elevator of the last century and at the same time, fully loaded with modern-day safety features and lift equipment. All our vintage lifts are custom designed, made with the highest quality of materials, superior ornamentals, and handcrafted precision to include all the vintage-inspired details that create the feeling of elegance that is synonymous with homes and buildings of the past.
Our design department is prepared with the latest in elevator 3D design equipment, used to create renderings of the antique lift or a birdcage elevator before ever going into production. After our team of experienced engineers and designers have collaborated with all the parties involved in the design, they begin with a sketch and then bring to life a classic elevator design and the elevator shaft with a modern 3D rendering. As I said before, you really can have the best of both worlds. This 3D design process is extremely beneficial in that all the details of engineering and design can be properly defined at this stage before any manufacturing commences. Not to mention, the client can really get a great idea of what the finished product will look like. Once manufacturing starts, we take the time to handcraft every vintage piece of the elevator. Every iron rod is formed by hand to the proper shape and joined to other parts to create the perfect classic lift. The design can be a reproduction of an existing elevator or one that retains the charm and character of that age.
We build and install many of these antique elevators throughout new and existing residential and commercial buildings, they all look and feel as if they have been there forever. Each antique elevator makes a statement for the building comparable to those of the bygone era.
