This press release was orginally distributed by ReleaseWire

Cudahy, WI — (ReleaseWire) — 06/23/2022 — Access Elevator, a leader in providing mobility and accessibility products, is pleased to offer LU/LA elevators in DeKalb, Chicago, Peoria, Frankfort, Oshkosh, Wausau, and the surrounding areas. These are designed to provide accessibility for handicapped individuals and take up less space and have a lower cost than a full-blown commercial elevator.

First, it is important to define what these elevators are. The letters stand for "Limited Use/Limited Application" elevators, and they can be added in places where a traditional elevator would be impractical to install. These special elevators take up about half of the space of a traditional elevator, and they do not require a concrete hoistway.

There are downsides to a LU/LA elevator, however, which include the fact that they can only travel up to 25 feet whereas a traditional elevator can travel much further. LU/LA elevators are also limited in their weight capacity as well, typically no more than 1,400 pounds, whereas a traditional elevator can handle at least 2,000 pounds of weight and often more.

There are several options for a commercial building or business to become ADA compliant. Wheelchair ramps are an obvious option, but these take up a lot of space even for a small change in elevation. Wheelchair lifts are another option that takes less floor space, but also have limitations on weight that are approximately half that of LU/LA elevators.

Because they operate very similarly to traditional elevators, LU/LA elevators are easily used by nearly everyone. These elevators offer a cost-effective and reliable option to comply with the ADA. LU/LA elevators also only need to be inspected once every six months compared to monthly for a traditional elevator.

Access Elevator knows that independence and mobility are important aspects of living. By providing several different models of LU/LA elevators, Access Elevator seeks to give easy access no matter what the unique requirements are.
