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.

Considerations for Choosing a Home Elevator: Part One

Home Elevator Preferred Elevator

Your home elevator’s location should also be inconspicuous and convenient.

Congratulations! You’ve decided to buy a home elevator. You can now look forward to enhancing your home and your life overall. Now that you are ready to commit, you should know that you have several styles and features available through our manufacturers.  A home elevator can potentially fit it in your home in several locations, to be the most convenient for you. Making beneficial choices for your home, and your lifestyle will allow you to get the most out of your residential elevator. Here are three considerations for choosing a home elevator. 


Location matters because you want the elevator to appear inconspicuous, but its location to be convenient. It’s ideal when none of the drive equipment shows for a sleek and “barely there” design. Areas near stairs are perfect as well as an area with an adjacent room to house the lifting equipment. 

Cab Style

Inclinator offers five different cab styles with multiple interior options that will match your home’s decor and style preferences. Inclinator’s standard cab style is the 100 Cab with paintable walls, a white laminate ceiling, and a neutral-colored wood grain floor. The most luxurious cab option is the contemporary 500 Cab with an aluminum frame and acrylic panels to provide a panoramic view while riding the elevator. If you have any safety concerns, you should rest assured that each cab style includes safety features that all compliant with the 2016 ASME code

Cab Customization 

Customizing your cab involves adding a variety of handrails, flooring, ceilings, walls, light fixtures, gates, and control preferences that appeal to you. Adapting these preferences will enhance how the cab fits in your home. Inclinator allows you to choose between many different finishes to ensure you can find exactly what you are looking for!
