Elevators for commercial buildings are designed to move both people (including wheelchair users) as well as heavy goods between the floors. Commercial LULA (Limited Use/Limited Access) elevators are ideal for low-rise commercial buildings such as schools, colleges, hospitals, churches and airports. These systems are typically installed in buildings where in a full-size commercial elevator cannot be installed. They require only limited space to install and less pit depth than conventional equipment, which reduces construction requirements and saves the customer’s money.

LULA elevators conform to the building codes and safety standards of the United States Americans with Disability Act (ADA). These devices come equipped with advanced features such as emergency lighting, alarm and stop button, automatic controls, emergency battery lowering unit, speed governor, interlocking system, safety brakes, negative pressure valve, and more.
