Ribbon cutting for new Cabana lift



On behalf of the Barefoot Resort Residential Owners Association, BRRA Board president Michael Atwood addressed a group of owners and Cabana staff to dedicate the opening of the new Cabana elevator / lift.

This official recognition was marked with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The long-awaited replacement elevator provides Cabana access to residents with disabilities. The new lift is much heavier and better made than the old lift to ensure greater ability to withstand the damage caused by the sun and salt air at this ocean-front location.

This lift is a hydraulic system utilizing a piston ram, in lieu of the old lift that was raised and lowered by a large screw.   This new unit will run much smoother without the old vibrations from the screw design that over time gets gear wear from not only usage, but also sand sticking to the screw design along with rust from being exposed. The doors are also 4" wider than those on the old lift.

PLEASE NOTE: Per the SC Department of LLR, the lift can only be operated by the Cabana Attendant. Personal keys cannot be provided to individual owners.
