WIITRAC Elevator Sdn Bhd debuts as a silver sponsor for Penang Starwalk 2018 with a RM15,000 contribution.

Its managing director Winson Teh Kean Wei said the sponsorship was part of the company’s many continuous initiatives to shape a greener and healthier community.

“This is in line with our Aritco HomeLift, a green product with 95% recyclable components. Fully manufactured in Sweden, it is also low in maintenance and energy-saving.”

Touted as the world’s first smart home lift uniquely designed for private homes, Aritco HomeLift is positioned as the ‘lift of the future’ with its state-of-the-art design, space efficiency without the need for a base structure, and SmartSafety system.

Designed to elevate your living experience, the HomeLift uses screw-and-nuts technology which is space saving unlike the conventional wire-rope hydraulic system.

The SmartSafety system ensures peace of mind with its smart doors, safety sensors and safety breaks to enable you to always get out of the lift even during a power failure. There is also a lock that can beactivated to keep children out when adults are not present.

Homeowners could also customise their lifts to suit their taste and mood with a DesignWall selection by some of Scandinavia’s most prominent artists as well as lighting design.

The lights can be adjusted using the SmartLift application which also stores the lift data.

Teh said Aritco HomeLift is CE-certified, a warranty that fulfils high requirements on safety and reliability to meet Europe’s stringent safety regulations.

“The lifts also come with a 24-month warranty while the screw and nut assembly has a 10-year warranty. Available are five different sizes to carry loads between 250kg or two persons, and 400kg or five persons. It can service up to six floors or 15m.”

He was speaking after handing over a mock cheque to Star Media Group Bhd advertising department assistant manager Andy Tan.

With its headquarters in Penang and showrooms in Selangor, Sabah and Sarawak, Wiitrac Elevator is the main distributor for Aritco HomeLift in Malaysia.

Teh added that the award winning Aritco has been in the global market since 1995 and was introduced in Malaysia in 2011.

“We have since sold over 700 units of Aritco lifts. The HomeLift was released last year and is already well received. Our clientele in Penang includes Tech Dome Penang, Penang Digital Library and the Jelutong Villaresidential development by BTK Land Sdn Bhd,” he said.

Aritco HomeLift has garnered many prestigious international awards such as Archidex New Product Award 2018, Grand Award of Design 2017, Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017 and Hong Kong Design Awards 2017.

Penang Starwalk 2018 is organised by Star Media Group with YTL Communications Sdn Bhd as the platinum sponsor.

The US Department of Agriculture is the gold sponsor while Eastern & Oriental Bhd, F&N Beverages Marketing Sdn Bhd, Wiitrac Elevator Sdn Bhd and Ewein Zenith Sdn Bhd are the silver sponsors.
