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.

Five Qualities That a New Residential Elevator Must Have


Residential elevators are a practical home addition that works well for everyone.

Residential elevators are a practical home addition that works well for everyone. In the past, home elevators were used only in luxurious homes, but now they are affordable for most homeowners. However, you don’t have to skimp out on style or elegance. Residential elevators are entirely customizable. Therefore, you’ll have the option of showcasing your unique design style. Still, keep in mind that while home elevators are customizable, there are features that every new residential elevator should have. Keep reading to discover these five qualities.

1) Customization

The design should blend in with the interior of your home. It should match the flooring, walls, and the ceiling of your home. Whether the design of your home is modern or traditional, you need an elevator that represents your overall design scheme well. Preferred Elevator allows you to customize the flooring of your elevator cab as well as lighting, cab finishing, and material.

2) Convenient Design

Installation shouldn’t involve your home being completely reconstructed. The elevator should enhance your home and we can help find the right placement for it. Preferred Elevator makes sure to work with your Contractor and your site’s specifications to find the perfect size elevator.

3) Safety

Make sure to ask about the technical aspects of your home elevator. It’s vital to familiarize yourself with its safety features. Key considerations to think about are if there’s a backup battery, how fast does the cab travel, how many safety switches there are, and what is the weight capacity of your residential elevator.

4) A Maintenance Plan

On the topic of safety, you want to have a plan for maintaining your home elevator so that it will run smoothly for years to come. Preferred Elevator offers 24/7 emergency elevator service, with executing an Annual Service Agreement. We’ll also go over preventative measures and explain the safety features of your residential elevator.

5) Home Value Increase

Not only can a residential elevator make your life better, as well as your loved ones, but it’ll also help other people in the future if you decide to sell your home. Since residential elevators are stylish and practical, your home will automatically be worth more with one in it.
