What Makes LULA a "Hybrid" Elevator?

LULA elevators from Nationwide Lifts are hybrid elevators – a cross between a full-size commercial elevator and a wheelchair lift that provides access to a building.

If you need to install an elevator to assist disabled customers, clients, or employees and don't have room to install a traditional elevator, LULA hybrid elevators are the best choice. They are small, safe, and secure and perfect for aiding disabled passengers.

LULA elevators are the perfect hybrid that safely transports persons and their wheelchairs without taking up a substantial amount of space. In fact, the amount of space required is only half that of a standard elevator and it can be built from wood or sheetrock with no cement hoistway required. Only a 14" pit is required with 102" overhead for existing buildings and 134" for new construction.

And the LULA elevator only requires maintenance once every six months, compared to monthly for standard elevators, so you save substantially on maintenance costs.

The LULA elevator comes with a variety of options, including custom wood cabs, a stainless steel or colored laminate interior, and car door finishes. LULA elevators also come with a variety of safety features, including keyed-in car stop switch, emergency lighting in the cab interior and instantaneous safety brake system, an emergency backup power supply for light and door operators, and automatic bi-directional floor leveling. LULA elevators are designed to provide ADA compliant accessibility and exceed the safety codes established by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

The LULA hybrid elevator is also cost effective with prices much lower than larger, traditional-style commercial elevators.
