Generally, accidents or old age limit mobility within the house and outside. Wheelchair users or mobility challenged people may face serious difficulties in participating in events or moving about in public places. LULA (Limited Use Limited Access) elevators are a practical solution to resolve the accessibility challenges of such people, providing them with greater freedom and independence.
Commercial LULA elevators are ideal for low-rise commercial buildings such as churches, schools, hospitals, airports or colleges. Generally, they are installed in small buildings where a high-rise commercial model cannot be installed. They are great for renovations and new construction and look and work like normal elevators. This LULA accessibility system requires less space for installation when compared to other commercial models. Lower pit depth makes it the ideal choice for buildings with two or three floors. With minimal overhead clearance, it is suitable for settings with space constraints.
LULA elevators are equipped with advanced features like automatic steel control panel, speed governor, interlock system, sliding doors, emergency alarm, cab lighting with stop buttons, floor specific battery lowering, negative pressure valve, emergency battery back-up for lowering and interior lighting, emergency manual lowering, safety brakes and more.
Other impressive features may include:
Submersed pump and motor for quiet operation
Stainless steel trim and control panel
Modular rail construction for easy installation
Manual and automatic entrances
Hydraulic drive system for a smooth and safe ride
Digital display in car operating panel
Auto accordion car door
Attractive call station, control panel and digital floor indicators
