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.

Steps That Happen During the Elevator Installation Process

Steps That Happen During the Elevator Installation Process

Today, we’re going to tell you what steps should happen during your elevator installation process so that your elevator gets installed the right way.

If you or someone living with you has limited mobility, installing a home elevator can be the perfect way to give them access to the different levels of your house. Before you can enjoy your elevator, though, you have to plan out the elevator installation process, identifying where it will go and what steps need to be followed to ensure a proper installation. Today, we’re going to tell you what steps should happen during your elevator installation process so that your elevator gets installed the right way.

Choose the Elevator You Want

First of all, you will determine which kind of elevator to get. Home elevators come in many varieties, and you should work with a professional elevator installation company to determine what kind of elevator is best for you. You can even look into ways to customize your elevator while you’re at it.

Decide on a Location

The next step of the elevator installation process is deciding where it goes. Your elevator shouldn’t feel obstructive in your home, and an elevator professional can determine a location that is both non-obtrusive while maximizing its usefulness.

Beginning the Installation

Now is when the actual installation part of your elevator installation process begins. First off, amenities such as pits, machine rooms, and shafts are installed if they are needed by a contractor. After that, your elevator installation company will install the actual elevator car. A reliable company should keep you updated on everything going on during the installation, and inform you of any problems if they arise.

Confirm the Installation Went Well

The final part of the elevator installation process is to inspect all elevator components to be sure they are working as intended. All applicable local and national regulations should be upheld to ensure your safety. Once it’s confirmed that the installation was done successfully and you have been fully educated and how to use and care it, you can enjoy your brand new elevator.
