Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

A Few Elevator Etiquette Rules to Follow Preferred Elevator

For more elevator etiquette tips, keep reading our blogs

Today we’re going to share a few commercial elevator etiquette rules that can benefit any user. While we only install commercial LULA elevators here at Preferred Elevator, these tips are still super useful. Every environment you share with others, whether it be the workplace, your home, and yes, even an elevator has its sets of standards and rules. If you want to enhance your elevator etiquette, keep reading! 

Hold the Elevator for Others

It doesn’t cost a thing to be kind to others. If you notice that someone is struggling to try to get to the elevator in time, keep the door open for them. We know that you would appreciate someone extending the same level of kindness to you. 

Be Aware of Space and Always Face the Elevator Door

We’re living during a time where social distancing means everything. If you’re on an elevator with others, ensure that you’re not too close to them. You should also always face the elevator door. For one, you don’t want to be too close to others. Two, you should always be aware of your surroundings. 


Also, if you’re the first person in the elevator, move to the side. Allow room for others to come in and out. When you stand or sit in the center, you make it more challenging for people to get out of the way of the door as more people come on and off the elevator. Another thing to consider is if there are too many people on the elevator, try to be patient and wait for the next ride. 

If You’re Near the Buttons, Ask Someone What Their Floor Is

If there are a few people on your elevator ride and you’re close to the buttons, ask the person which floor they need and press the button for them. Who knows? You may even strike up a pleasant conversation with someone.
