Limited Use Limited Application (LULA) Elevators

The Savaria Orion elevator is designed for limited use/limited application commercial applications. It is ideal for use in settings such as professional office buildings up to 3 stories, classroom and educational settings, and places where people congregate such as churches or synagogues.

This elevator has all the features you would expect in a high quality elevator. Automatic sliding doors, commercial fixtures, a smooth ride, and very quiet.

This elevator is is designed to fill the gap between a conventional elevator, and a vertical platform lift. ASME has written and adopted a special code specifically for LULA elevators - Known as A17.1 part XXV. The new IAC Illinois Accessibility code permits the use of LULA and is promoted by Capital Development Board. The application of LULA elevator is ideal where cost and space constraints are factors.
