Choosing a Custom Commercial Elevator

A custom commercial elevator can enhance a business or commercial building. Of course, there are many things to know when deciding to add a commercial custom elevator. Certain standards need to be met, including those tied to the Americans with Civil Disabilities Act. For more information call 1-888-221-7475.

Because of these requirements, the elevator industry has established certain sizes for the weight requirement and space of a commercial elevator. It can depend on the location of the elevator, or proposed elevator. It’s fair to assume that an elevator for a hospital or an apartment building will have different size and spacing requirements than an elevator for a smaller business. For example, the commercial elevator installed in a hospital is likely to be a wider design, since it is designed to carry people. The purpose of a commercial elevator will be determined by the amount of people and types of objects being carried by the elevator.

The minimum requirement by the American Disabilities Act for any commercial elevators are a minimum depth of 51 inches and width of 68 inches or 80 inches, depending upon the door type of elevator. Office elevators are typically designed with a weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. Residential elevators only need to support 2,500 lbs.
