Four Primary Benefits of LU/LA Elevators for Businesses
Elevator lifts can provide added help for senior citizens and disabled people in managing everyday tasks. In some cases, however, limited space or budgets may make other solutions more practical for business enterprises. The limited use/limited application (LU/LA) elevator is one of the most innovative and space-saving mobility solutions developed in recent years. These hybrid systems combine the best features of a full-sized elevator with the smaller profile of a lift to allow easy access to top stories of all areas of low-rise public buildings and retail establishments. Here are some of the primary benefits of LU/LA elevator lifts in the modern marketplace.
1. Cost-Effective Solutions for Business
Elevator installations can be costly, especially in areas that would require extensive structural changes or remodeling work to accommodate the equipment required. Because of their smaller size and reduced architectural footprints, LU/LA elevator lifts typically require a much smaller investment on the part of homeowners or building managers. The materials used to construct the hoistway can also be less expensive, making these elevators a solid financial choice for public agencies or businesses on a tight budget.
2. Ideal for Limited Space
LU/LA elevators typically need only about half the space required to construct a full-sized and full-service elevator. Overhead clearance is also reduced significantly. This allows full access and mobility for wheelchair-bound individuals in a much smaller space. For low-rise office buildings and retail companies, these advanced elevator solutions can provide a space-saving alternative to traditional installations.
3. Advanced Safety Features
LU/LA elevators offer many of the same safety features that traditional elevator lifts do. Because they are designed specifically for use by handicapped individuals, this advanced mobility equipment includes sensors that stop doors from closing when passengers are entering or exiting. They also feature emergency call and emergency stop buttons to ensure the greatest degree of protection for those who use these elevators to travel up and down in retail shops and in office environments.
4. Americans with Disabilities Act Compliance
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 and requires most businesses to make accommodations for customers to ensure that they can access the goods and services offered at these establishments. Employees must also be able to reach their workplaces safely and without undue stress. LU/LA elevators can provide a cost-effective and reliable way to ensure accessibility for workers and customers alike.
Working with a proven mobility services provider like Access Elevator can help your business choose the right solutions in the elevator and stair lift environment. By enlisting the help of these knowledgeable professionals, you can enjoy the most accurate advice and expert guidance in the home and business mobility industry.
