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.

Commercial LULA Elevators and Their Benefits

Commercial LULA Elevators

We install commercial LULA elevators as well as home elevators

One of our primary focuses is residential elevators, but we also install commercial LULA elevators as well. The primary place that we install our commercial LULA elevators is in churches. However, if your building falls under the “LULA” guidelines, you can benefit as well. “LULA” stands for limited use, limited action, meaning that this lift’s limits are 30 cycles a day. LULA also means that the elevator has a vertical travel limit of 24′, typically 3 stops, and has a weight capacity of 1,400 pounds. If your commercial building complies with these guidelines, you’ll find a commercial LULA elevator very advantageous. Allow us to elaborate on some of these advantages. 

Commercial LULA Elevators Solve Accessibility Issues 

Commercial LULA elevators add accessibility to commercial buildings. They help with mobility issues and make moving around more convenient for you or anyone that enters your building. This lift provides an economical way to meet ADA requirements. 

Takes Up Minimal Space

What’s excellent about all of the elevators that we install is that they are not bulky or unappealing. Whether our customers need an in-home or commercial LULA elevator, they can look forward to sleek and attractive designs that do not take up much space. Our elevator installation isn’t extraneous, and the goal is to keep the system neat, discrete, and out of the way. You can look forward to an elevator that functions as a standard commercial elevator but without the bulk. So, that means that you still get all of the safety features! 

Excellent and Economical for Low-Rise Buildings

Commercial LULA elevators benefit low-rise buildings because they can only travel up to 24′. Also, because the hoistway can consist of wood versus concrete, you can be happy about a cost-effective approach to meeting ADA guidelines. 

Benefits of Commercial LULA Elevators in a Nutshell

  • Convenient for wheelchair users
  • Cost-effective (compared to standard commercial elevators)
  • ADA-Compliant as it relates to handicap access for commercial buildings
  • Less maintenance needed than full commercial elevators 
  • They travel more quickly than a wheelchair lift.
  • There are style selections to choose from
  • They take up less space
