The final convention of the year is upon us. The 35th Annual Fall Home Show, presented by Jenks Productions, runs October 24th to the 26th 2014, located at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT. With a vendor list of over 350 companies, from Appliances to Windows and Doors, and everything in-between, anything you’re looking for is guaranteed to be there.

With the winter months coming, this is the perfect opportunity to look into energy saving options. On that same front, Elevator Service Company has options to be more energy efficient, while still improving your day to day mobility. Our exclusive Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator, is a “Green Technology” lift. It uses the same amount of energy that an average house hold dryer does to lift the cab, and NO ENERGY for the cab to descend.

Interested in improved safety in the home? During potential winter power outages, all our lifts have safety features that allow the lift to return to the ground floor. Beyond that, our Symmetry Elevators have options to continue running up and down, up to 7 times*.

Do you already have an elevator, lift, or stair chair? Come by and ask us about our preventative maintenance program. Is your lift worn out, or is the manufacturer no more? We have solutions to modernize your lift, or even replace the entire unit. From homes to businesses, we will be on hand, every day, to answer all your question on how we can improve your home mobility.

ESCO and the Center for Disability Rights

With the 67th Connecticut Home & Remodeling Show wrapping up, we have even more news coming in. On March 1st, Elevator Service Companies own Paul Farnsworth, received an invite from the Center for Disabilities Rights (CDR) to serve on a Blue Ribbon Commission. This one time commission goal is to help identify, both individuals and organizations, to help the CDR grow and advocate its goals.

The CDR is a membership organization of individuals with disabilities. They operate a Center for Independent Living, which provides services to individuals and their families. Also the CDR provides information, technical assist and education to businesses, government, and members of the community. While advocating for people with disabilities and their issues, the CDR brings their issues from a local level all the way to the national stage.

Elevator Service Companies extensive understating of ADA compliance, and our products will be a key factor in the commission. We understand the difficulty many people face when their mobility becomes less than optimal, and Paul will bring his years of knowledge and experience to the table.

ConvertaStep Added to the ESCO Product Lineup

Elevator Service Company is always on the search to bring the best products to you. Thats why we are excited and proud to announce we are now the exclusive Connecticut and New York dealer for ConvertaStep Platforms.

ConvertaStep Platforms, an Illinois based company, has 10 years of experience making mobility products. President Steve Kitchin is a wheelchair user himself, and has used his personal experience to design, manufacture and market “exceptional mobility and access products”.

Where ConvertaStep brakes from the pack, is how their products fit into the homestead. A traditional wheelchair ramp is costly, and takes up far too much space. ConvertaStep Platforms can be installed at a fraction of the cost, and they take up very little room. ConvertaStep Platforms also are available in different colors or materials, making sure it will blend in with any home exterior. They are adjustable from 11” up 33”, they can lift up to 700lbs, and offer accruements like: a seat, handrails, and section sensors.

ConvertaStep Platforms may seem like a small departure from Elevator Service Company’s wheelhouse of mobility products. But when a Residential Inclined Wheelchair Lift or a Residential Vertical Platform Lift, doesn’t quite fit the project spectrum, whether its pricing, space, or compromise of styling, a ConvertaStep Platform is the choice alternative. And with Elevator Service Company as the exclusive dealer, we are able to bring you the best pricing on a ConvertaStep Platform.
