I am completing a design for a new church. There is a suspended candle holder in a chapel that needs to be accessible so that the candle can be renewed once a week. Our thought was to suspend this using a cable or something flexible enough that it can be spooled on a small drum.
The owner does not want to cart in a ladder each week to do this, but would like a motorized device where they can operate a switch and the candle will lower to a point where it can be changed. Pushing another button will raise the candle back to normal height.
Anybody ever come across something that would work in this application? The Architect and I are having trouble coming up with a solution. Thanks!
