Designed for low-traffic, low-rise installations, LULA (Limited Use Limited Application) elevators are different from standard passenger lifts. This makes them the ideal option for commercial buildings with up to three stories. In fact, many offices, restaurants, and retail stores in New York are equipped with these LULA systems. They require less space and cost less than standard elevators and are a more feasible option in settings where a form of vertical access such as a platform lift would otherwise not be provided.
Blending the features of a traditional elevator and a wheelchair lift, a LULA system is designed to enhance accessibility for wheelchair users or people with disabilities. It can carry a single person in a wheelchair from floor to floor in a commercial building. LULA systems are therefore a feasible choice for businesses that need to improve accessibility for wheelchair users but have limited funds and not enough space for a conventional elevator.
