During the world’s main Trade Fair dedicated to lifts and vertical transport in general (INTERLIFT – Augsburg, Germany, from 15 to 18 October 2013), Vimec will be present at the Magnificent Italy stand, with its S10 platform liftand a T09 Roby model mobile stairclimber.
The Magnificent Italy stand arose from a joint initiative between the German trade fair organizer AFAG and the Italian publication Elevatori, with the aim of creating a space dedicated to Italian excellences, with a focus upon the undisputed prestige of several manufacturers in the industry, and flanking it with major brands and flagship products from the Italian market: Ferrari, Ducati, various Fashion Designers (Prada, Armani, Flos), and companies associated with Italy’s Wine & Food culture.
At the Magnificent Italy stand, visitors can admire Italian excellences next to the products of Italian companies like Vimec, and take a break in the tasting area, where samples of Prosecco, genuine Parmesan cheese, pizza, and pasta will be offered on a daily basis.
Safety, simplicity, quality, savings, and environmental sustainability are principles that are increasingly being applied in the field of modern construction, whether we’re talking about new builds or renovations.
In the residential construction sector, there’s an increasing demand for dwellings designed and manufactured according to the latest criteria, with a particular focus upon the use of quality accessories and the choice of the raw materials, in order to ensure safe and reliable use over time.
An increasing amount of attention is also being paid to the design of the home, with a greater demand for modern styles.
A personal taste in interior décor has assumed greater importance, thus resulting in a new form of aesthetics that draws inspiration from the past, while at the same time allowing itself to be influenced by unusual shapes and materials.
Modern homes are mainly characterised by certain specific aspects: they tended to have wide open spaces, where areas with different functions merge and come together; the spaces are arranged so as to render them as functional as possible; there are plays on natural and artificial light; the contours and depths give even the most compact surfaces an unprecedented ampleness, as well as maximum usability and accessibility.
The electric ECOVimec liftis the perfect solution for ensuring the accessibility of a private dwelling with two or more floors, without compromising its aesthetics, and instead bringing added value to the home itself while accentuating its character.
Thanks to its simple contours, carefully selected materials, and meticulous craftsmanship, the safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly ECOVimec lift can be perfectly integrated into any home with a modern design.
There are various types of doors to choose from, and the customer can even combine different models, in order to obtain the style that’s best suited to the installation environment: panoramic aluminium doors, automated two-leaf glass doors, and even simple blind doors with windows. It is possible to choose a different door for each individual floor station, based on the style of the surrounding environment.
The walls of the cabin can be personalised with your preferred colours from the RAL range, or else with the standard available colours; the choice of glass walls provides for greater transparency and luminosity, and renders all the spaces visible. For high-tech environments, on the other hand, the stainless steel cabin is an almost mandatory aesthetic choice..
The floor of the cabin can be adapted to the style of the home by choosing from among the standard colours of light or dark grey non-slip Safestep flooring, for environments with neutral colours, or by choosing the option that allows the same flooring finish as the surrounding environment to be used within the cabin itself.
Since it doesn’t require a special technical compartment to house a power unit and motor, the ECOVimec homelift can even be installed in confined spaces. All the moving parts and control elements are contained within the compartment, while the oil-free electric motor is positioned below, and guarantees quiet functionality..
After having pre-announced its publication last week, Vimec is now happy to invite you to visit the website dedicated to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
The website, which can be viewed at olympics.vimec.biz, was created in honour of the Olympics, but is also intended to be a starting point for developing and reinforcing the company’s relationships with its dealers worldwide.
Because our partners are the driving force behind our success. Ours is a teamwork that has endured for more than 30 years, and must be preserved, reinforced, and expanded. To move forward together, overcoming every barrier and obstacle: this is our goal.
Because Sochi 2014 is the gold metal around the neck of the team made up of Vimec and its dealers. At the Olympic Village, accessibility will be ensured by over 370 Vimec installations.
A Vimec homelift gives greater value to the living environment, and for solutions in particularly narrow spaces, three-leaf telescopic doors are now available.
This possibility allows the Vimec homelift to be used with maximum ease, with a greater door span for improved accessibility, all without compromising the available space in the hallways or rooms.
