Check out what Access Automation is up to and what exciting projects we are working on

Access Automation's First Vertical "Inclined" Elevator

Our company’s reputation for innovative hillside access solutions is based on our ability to tailor our designs to match our clients site topography. On this project, our client needed to gain access to the beautiful and remote Kubu Beach, located at the base of a 35 m high vertical cliff in the south of Bali.

The 10 passenger unit is based on our standard commercial variable gradient inclined elevator.  This vertical application demonstrates the versatility of our technology. As our elevators do not require an enclosure, the passengers are treated to a fabulous and open view out over the Indian Ocean.

This is the third outside elevator we have provide to the Ayana Resort and Spa - the others provide access to the famous Rock Bar.

Major International Award Win for Access Automation

Access Automation have been recognised internationally by their peers through the international publication Elevator World.  Access Automation took out first place in the Inclined Lift category in the 2013 Project of the Year awards.  The award was for the twin 'Nam Trams' at the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort in Danang City, Vietnam.

We are very proud of this award as we were up against the best inclined elevator companies in the world.  As the award suggests, Access Automation have come out on top and this little company from Lower Hutt, New Zealand is a world leader in their field and definately going places.  Well done!

Access Boys Doing Us Proud Abroad

In April 2012 this large project in Asia was commissioned. This commercial installation for The Da Nang InterContinental Resort consists of twin 140m long inclined elevators. Although side by side, these inclined lifts are independent of each other allowing maximum throughput of guests who will be able to choose from 4 stops along the way. Each passenger car has a payoad of 750kg with a travelling speed of 1.5m/s. They will change gradient three times over their travel whilst remaining perfectly level.

Another engineering feat by Access Automation Ltd. Keep up the great work guys.
