Cinema Elevation

   
Tower Heist was recently on cable television. While trying not to spoil this raucous comedy, there was an over-the-top chase sequence involving an elevator, which featured some of the actors riding up and down the shaft on the roof of the cab while grabbing onto the cables.

Elevators have long been an integral part of the cinema, if you think about it. For us in the business, it’s a little extra fun while viewing a flick whenever an elevator is part of the program.

A lift is often used to dramatically introduce a character for the first time by having them appear as the elevator doors open and they stride through them walking directly toward the camera.

How many movies show two characters talking to each other inside an elevator while staring forward at the sliding doors? Or sometimes, there is a man and a woman romantically exchanging glances through and around the other occupants inside a jam-packed lift.

There is the requisite action scene presenting a villain who is chasing a good guy, or a good guy who is following a bad guy, throughout a building. The targeted individual always seems to dive into the elevator just as the doors close in front of their pursuer. Terminator 2 took this concept to a whole new level.

Unfortunately, for our industry, another common plot device is having one or more characters become trapped inside the elevator. We don't like that, because we know our lifts come with battery back-up mechanisms.

Occasionally we receive an inquiry about a scissor gate for a residential elevator, what the person usually brings it up with the comment, "I like that gate because it's like the ones that you see in all the old movies."

Scissor gates are attractive, and we like old movies, too, but we will not sell a scissor gate to anybody. T.L. Shield & Associates is a company whose top priority is the safety of our customers, and scissor gates can be hazardous. People, especially children, can be tempted to stick their fingers inside the grates and get them pinched, or even worse, stuck. If a scissor gate is not closed properly it can get snagged on the landing, causing it to bend and buckle.

In the "old days," elevators were attended by trained operators, often wearing a snappy uniform. They made sure nothing out of the ordinary happened and people reached their destinations accordingly. Shirley MacLaine played a lift operator in the classic movie, The Apartment, which won “Best Picture” at the Academy Awards in 1960.

With all this movie talk, two personal favorite elevator-related scenes come to mind. The first is from The Blues Brothers. Toward the end of the movie, Jake and Elwood Blues are being chased by what seems to be the entire law enforcement community of Illinois as they race to Chicago’s City Hall to pay off the tax owed on a church boarding school. Inside the building, they slip into an elevator and quietly listen to the Muzak as they ascend, while all the mayhem carries on outside.

The next one is from Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. At the end of the picture, Willie takes Charlie and his Grandpa for a ride high above their home town inside the "Wonkavator," a special glass elevator that can travel in any direction you want it to. Even though the Wonkavator crashes through the roof of the chocolate factory to get up in the clouds, sending tiles and wood everywhere, it is still the world’s greatest elevator!

Please call Inclinator Company at 1-800-201-1212 for a free consultation.

Long-Lasting Beauty and Elegance From Northstate Hardwood Floors

Carpet fibers hold allergenic bacteria and other unhealthy agents such as dust, dust mites, mold, mildew, dirt and grime. Hardwood floors are as much as 80 percent cleaner and healthier than floors with carpet. In addition, real-estate professionals agree that homes with hardwood floors sell faster and for more money than homes with carpet.

Of course, hardwood floors also add long-lasting beauty and elegance to your home. Call Northstate Hardwood Floors today to learn more about the many benefits of hardwood floors or to request and estimate on hardwood floor installation or refinishing for your home or business.

Northstate Hardwood Floors has been a Fisher Construction partner for close to three years. The company installs hardwood flooring in the homes of Fisher Construction clients, working on projects from one room to whole home installations. "We can always rely upon Northstate Hardwood Floors for the highest quality product, installation and services," says Fisher Construction owner Peter Valentino.

A resurgence of interest in hardwood floors over the past several years is due to a variety of factors, according to Marty Calvert: "People are ripping up their carpeting of formica to replace it with hardwood because hardwood flooring is so much easier to maintain," Marty says, "It makes for a cleaner look and feel in the home environment, and it’s beautiful, too."

Northstate Hardwood Floors has been privileged to work with many companies in the area. Red Carpet Realty, Bpwser Const., Carpet One Floor & Home Design, Chinberg Construction Inc., Custom Restorations Inc. A.S.B. Properties Investments as well as all of our wonderful home-owners. Refrences are available, so call if you need our services we are always available.

While oak remains the classic choice for flooring, other woods such as Brazillian Cherry or Walnut, with their darker, more exotic finishes, have grown in popularity recently. Hardwood can be used in every room in the home, from the kitchen to the bathroom, and installed over any surface, even concrete in the basement. These days there is a wood for every décor and almost every budget. Fisher Construction clients can select from a wide range of hardwoods to find one that integrates best with their remodel.

Marty appreciates working with Fisher Construction because of their strong relationships with clients and vendors. "They are nice people, good people to work for, and they treat you well," he says.

    Some Electrical Safety Tips In The Workplace

    The work environment can be stressful and sometimes overwhelming. Employers may sometimes be too caught-up in projects to notice the kinds of hazards that need attention. For this reason, employers should hire maintenance personnel to take care of problems that may result in accidents or injuries for employees.

    Electrical safety is a very important in the work environment. Employees of offices, industrial plants, and construction zones all face electrical hazards every day on the job. Electricity is especially dangerous due to its sudden nature. Unlike fires, electricity will come out in a spark, shock, or arc and at an extremely fast rate.

    Workers who have been injured in an electrical-related accident may be eligible to receive compensation. Families of workers who have died due to an accident may also be eligible to receive a portion of the amount of money that used to be earned by the worker. Employers must protect employees from exposure to electricity in order to prevent accidents like these from happening.

    At times, employees speak to their employers about such hazards, but unfortunately some employers remain unresponsive. If an accident arises due to the employer's lack of response, an expert lawyer in workers' compensation and liability will be able to help.

    Safety Tips

    The best electricity accident is the one that never happens. Here are a few tips to keeping you and fellow coworkers safe from an electrical accident:

    -Heed warning signs: If you smell a bad odor coming from electrical outlets or areas, hear high-pitched noises or drones from areas, or if you notice electricity going on and off, consider hiring an electrician to take care of the problem.

    -Keep electrical cords in good condition: Electrical cords can burn the area around the cord and cause a fire. Only purchase extension cords or surge protectors that have passed safety standards.

    -Use GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlets in wet areas: These outlets are programmed to stop the flow of electricity if the sensor notices a spike in electrical output.

    -Do not overload an outlet: People sometimes "daisy chain" surge protectors and test the strengths of a circuit breaker.

    -Unplug unused appliances: Keep an electrical accident from happening whenever possible. Unplugging unused appliances also saves on electricity costs.

    -Cover exposed wiring: Have an electrician cover any exposed wiring and make sure the unit itself is up to code.

    Thanks For The Lift

     WC Acc Lift
     We are of course a real business with bills to pay and jobs to complete. But, we have the additional benefit that what we do for a living helps people. Most of the time when a vertical transportation device is purchased, it is with the intent to enable at least one individual who has issues with mobility.

    Whether it’s a residential elevator, a stair lift, or a vertical platform lift (VPL), the moment it is turned on and used for the first time can be a new beginning for someone. We are very thankful to be part of that experience.

    We also enjoy seeing others help others in need. Families often get together to provide a stair chair for an ailing family member; some of our customers have gone outside their families to help a friend; we assist homeowners who are struggling to find the best spot on their property for a VPL or elevator; we see businesses doing their best to accommodate handicapped customers; many times we find out that a “showpiece” custom elevator is being procured for the additional purpose of assisting a wheelchair-bound relative or friends when they visit.

    As the economy continues to be “interesting” as things begin to mend, we are ready to meet this challenge with all of you. We at Inclinator Company of California are here to act in your best interest to ensure the safest, most practical solution possible for your need. We know that any one of us has the potential of needing assistance at some point in our lives, and that’s what motivates us to keep improving. We are grateful for our customers as well as for those who go out of their way to assist others.

    Maximizing Stair Storage

    No matter how much storage a project has, customers can always use more. But remodelers need creativity to utilize the space under stairs.

    It can be awkward to reach items in the narrower end of a closet in this location, so under-stair storage is almost always custom-built.

    Which Home Improvements Pay Off?

    In the first year my husband and I lived in our house, we spent almost $20,000 on home improvements. When we set that money aside at the beginning of the year, we dreamed about granite counters and steam showers; what we ended up with was a new furnace, new gutters, a drainage system to keep the basement dry, new landscaping and lots of new paint. At the end of that year as I wiped down my tacky Formica countertops and bathed in my 1950s seafoam green tub, I wondered if we had spent that money wisely. If we had put our house up for sale, would potential buyers have really cared about the dry basement and reliable furnace?

    he owner wanted to feel pebbles underfoot while doing dishes, so the pattern starts out wide at the sink and matches the flow of the kitchen.

    Quintana Wagoner and her assistant drew the design on the existing concrete subfloor; then subcontractor Todd Seaboch, of concrete coating company Life Deck, used spray adhesive to place a semi-rigid foam strip on the edges of the design before pouring the new concrete floor.

    Budgeting for a Bathroom Remodel

    Budgeting for a remodeling project can be a real test of your self-control. Sure, you can create a spa retreat in your master bedroom, but does that mean your family will eat cereal for dinner for the next 15 years? And will your "big ideas" cancel out plans for other home remodeling projects? Remember, a stellar bathroom truly is a luxury island if set within a home in disrepair.

    Carpet fibers hold allergenic bacteria and other unhealthy agents such as dust, dust mites, mold, mildew, dirt and grime. Hardwood floors are as much as 80 percent cleaner and healthier than floors with carpet. In addition, real-estate professionals agree that homes with hardwood floors sell faster and for more money than homes with carpet.

    Of course, hardwood floors also add long-lasting beauty and elegance to your home. Call Northstate Hardwood Floors today to learn more about the many benefits of hardwood floors or to request and estimate on hardwood floor installation or refinishing for your home or business.

    Northstate Hardwood Floors has been a Fisher Construction partner for close to three years. The company installs hardwood flooring in the homes of Fisher Construction clients, working on projects from one room to whole home installations. "We can always rely upon Northstate Hardwood Floors for the highest quality product, installation and services," says Fisher Construction owner Peter Valentino.

    A resurgence of interest in hardwood floors over the past several years is due to a variety of factors, according to Marty Calvert: "People are ripping up their carpeting of formica to replace it with hardwood because hardwood flooring is so much easier to maintain," Marty says, "It makes for a cleaner look and feel in the home environment, and it’s beautiful, too."

    Northstate Hardwood Floors has been privileged to work with many companies in the area. Red Carpet Realty, Bpwser Const., Carpet One Floor & Home Design, Chinberg Construction Inc., Custom Restorations Inc. A.S.B. Properties Investments as well as all of our wonderful home-owners. Refrences are available, so call if you need our services we are always available.

    While oak remains the classic choice for flooring, other woods such as Brazillian Cherry or Walnut, with their darker, more exotic finishes, have grown in popularity recently. Hardwood can be used in every room in the home, from the kitchen to the bathroom, and installed over any surface, even concrete in the basement. These days there is a wood for every décor and almost every budget. Fisher Construction clients can select from a wide range of hardwoods to find one that integrates best with their remodel.

    Marty appreciates working with Fisher Construction because of their strong relationships with clients and vendors. "They are nice people, good people to work for, and they treat you well," he says.
