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.

Is Your Church Accessible?

Older or disabled people may have trouble trying to climb stairs. A small commercial elevator will provide freedom to move around your church with ease.

A church can provide a sense of community and belongingness. People of all demographics attend church: young and old alike. However, some of the foundations of churches are older, which means steps can be steep with multiple levels to climb up and down. Older or disabled people may have trouble trying to climb stairs.  A small commercial elevator will provide freedom to move around your church with ease. An elevator will be a great addition to your church. Keep reading to discover why!

ADA Compliance

ADA stands for Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Businesses are required by law to accommodate those who are disabled. However, churches are not. Still, inclusion matters. It means that if you have a large congregation, it’s helpful to make sure that your church is wheelchair accessible and easy to maneuver through. Mobility matters. Our elevators are indeed ADA approved.

Our Elevators Hold a Lot of Weight

Our commercial elevators carry up to 1,400 pounds. Anyone can move through the levels of your church with no issue. Because physical needs vary, commercial elevators need to accommodate a  wide range of people so you can customize the size of the cab to your needs. Those who seek a church home won’t feel deterred or discouraged about facing obstacles when entering the building. We’ll even offer routine, maintenance checkups to make sure that your commercial elevator is running properly. We even provide 24-hour emergency service as part of an Annual Service Agreement!

Style Matters

Often churches are designed with detail. Your elevator should be as well. Is your church traditional? Is your church modernized? We have many customizations that will work for you. A church should feel welcoming and inviting and a stylish elevator can make your church feel like home.

We Install Residential Elevators as Well!

Does an elevator interest you but you don’t own a church? We install residential elevators as well. Residential elevators are affordable and can increase mobility in the home. While your home doesn’t need to be ADA compliant, your friends or family members with physical impairments will feel secure. We also offer wheelchair lifts and stairlifts.
