About LULA Elevators
LULA elevators have features you would find in a commercial high-rise elevator, without the price. They are described as a hybrid between a commercial wheelchair platform lift and elevator and are perfect for offices and commercial buildings. The sole purpose of LULA elevator is to provide a safe and accessible way for those with disabilities to access all levels of public or commercial building
The high-efficiency hydraulic drive system of a LULA elevator provides the ultimate smooth, quiet ride for passengers, and the automatic sliding stainless steel doors deliver the modern, sleek look of a standard commercial elevator. The LU/LA elevators that we professionally sell and install are manufactured by Savaria, which is one of the top manufacturers in the industry.
