Schools, Churches, Restaurants, and Businesses...

The group at Hankin Specialty Elevators, Inc. has been installing wheelchair lifts in Northern California and Nevada for over 20 years. Many of these applications are in various schools, churches, restaurants and businesses. Whether the need is access to a school stage, auditorium, mezzanine or access to a second floor, we’ve been able to assist in making the area compliant in accessibility code.

Garaventa manufactures both vertical and incline platform lifts. Both of these will meet code and are used for many applications. The vertical lift travels vertically to maximum height of 12’ in California, 14’ in Nevada and can accommodate up to a 3-stop application. These lifts are used on many stages, mezzanines, split floors and auditoriums. The incline lifts are designed to travel the path of the stairs and are capable of 3 floors and seven landings. Many times, the incline lift makes more sense due to the lack of floor space required. For more information on either of these products, please contact us so we can better serve you.

HSE offers many services that are helpful in designing a specific project. We have many years of experience with architects and contractors. We can make the process from start to finish extremely easy for an architect. We’re very familiar with the current codes of A-17 and A-18. We can address the do’s and don’ts that are sometimes overlooked. Our mission is to educate and properly inform a designer the correct way a lift should be implemented into the project. Let HSE help you while the project is in the early stages of design.

HSE has employees that are certified for A.I.A learning credits. We offer a 1 hour continued education on health and safety. The course is one hour and earns one credit. We cover all vertical, incline platform lifts and pertaining codes. We offer a box lunch at your firm to better help you and your employees understand the benefits of accessibility lifts. We’ve found that this course is extremely educational and is a benefit to both the architects and HSE. For more information on this, please contact one of us at HSE.

HSE has partnered up with Garaventa Lifts for all vertical and incline applications. Garaventa has a wealth of information that can help architects on a specific project. Between HSE and Garaventa, we can make the application you’re working on to go smooth and keep in code. Let HSE help you to make the right decisions.
