Nova Latus Nova Elevators - Lift for Modernization Projects


Lift for modernization projects: maximum design flexibility, tailor-made on your building!
Latus - Nova Srl

LATUS is a passenger lift line designed, patented and manufactured by NOVA to be installed in existing buildings, including narrow and odd-shaped spaces.

The owners of existing buildings frequently need to make their house accessible when the lift shaft had not been planned. Sometimes old lifts need to be replaced and the new ones must match the original size.

LATUS is the ultimate solution for such applications: it is completely tailor-made according to the available spaces, it features low headroom, shallow pit and its installation does not require significant building works. In addition, finishes and options can be selected to harmonize your own lift with your home and add value to your property with a convenient and classy product.

Traction drive and Hydraulic drive

LATUS is available both with hydraulic and traction drive and it’s complying with 2014/33/UE Lift Directive.
This passenger lift in the traction version features a high energy efficient gearless motor driven by a closed loop feedback controller.
The motor supplies power according to cabin load e.g.: when the lift is empty less power is supplied than when the cabin is fully loaded. Energy consumption is minimized this way and it is lower than hydraulic drive one.

Cabins and structures with multiple entrances are available. The cabin minimum size will change accordingly.

Latus in a narrow staircase: shaft of 710 mm

The staircase, in this building, was really narrow but it was the only place where a lift could be placed and it also had to be trimmed.
Latus was immediately reckoned to be the ultimate solution thanks to its minimal size.
The shaft width is 710 mm and the cabin width is 500 mm; a panoramic glazed wall was provided to give passengers a feeling of spaciousness.
An external cladding was provided for the cabin matching the metal structure colour in order to harmonize the lift with the surround.
