Commercial elevators improve accessibility in an office, allowing employees or customers with mobility issues to move from level to level easily and comfortably. They are an ideal option to transport a large number of people (including wheelchair users) to the various floors of buildings. Installed in offices, hospitals or other public buildings, these devices provide greater freedom and independence to people with special needs.
Leading manufacturers offer different unique models of accessibility devices for commercial purposes that meet all necessary safety standards. LULA (Limited Use or Limited Application) elevators are an ideal choice when it comes to safe vertical transportation in low-rise buildings. They can be installed in small buildings where a full-size commercial lift cannot be installed.
Built to meet the safety standards of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), a LULA device comes with advanced safety features such as emergency alarm, speed governor, fully automatic sliding doors, automatic stainless steel control panel, interlock system, cab lighting with stop buttons and more. These devices require less pit area and limited space to install than conventional lifts.
