Limited Use/ Limited Access (LULA) elevators are the perfect combination of mobility, affordability AND regulatory compliance. It is an essential addition to your company building as it provides the necessary accessibility features required for all commercial properties across North America. However, not all LULA’s are created the same; that’s why at RAM Elevators + Lifts, we ensure that all our LULA’s follow the performance and specifications regulated by ASME 18.1 (United States) and CSA B44 (Canada). With RAM, your LULA elevator is a mobility device that follows the mandatory regulations required.
Since LULA’s are highly regulated, following the mandatory specifications is crucial when installing your commercial elevator. Every aspect of the LULA is measured, from design to performance ability. The following specifications are the exact standards set out by the ASME code and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA):
- Maximum vertical travel of 25 ft.
- Maximum speed of 30 ft./min.
- Maximum car size of 18 sq. ft.
- Maximum weight capacity of 1400 lbs.
All elevators will add value to your commercial building; however, most tend to require costly lifetime maintenance. The great thing about RAM’s LULA elevator is the low maintenance required compared to other products. The LULA requires maintenance typically only once or twice a year, whereas other traditional elevators require monthly maintenance to ensure safe operation for your guests. As a building owner, this is a long-term investment you do not want to miss out on.
Your long-term value exponentially increases with RAM as we offer cost-effective features ONLY available in our LULA elevators. RAM is proud to introduce the industry-leading design of the LULA elevator, which only requires a 12” pit (one of the smallest pits available today). Our LULA’s are engineered to be fully compact and self-lubricating, requiring no machine room and a hassle-free, self-sufficient system. These features save you money on installation costs, building renovations and unnecessary future maintenance.
RAM’s LULA requires minimal construction compared to other LULA manufacturers. For instance, it requires less overhead clearance meaningless renovation costs during construction. RAM’s LULA also embodies the Smart Space Design, proprietary to RAM, to ensure seamless integration into your building. Since no additional machinery is required, limited construction is needed with RAM’s LULA elevator.
All of our elevators, including the LULA elevators, are engineered to provide you with beautiful, seamless and cost-effective mobility. Our exclusive systems are designed to provide you with minimal maintenance, repair and significantly less upkeep than our competition. For more than 30 years, we have collaborated with many industries, providing top-notch products and a lifetime of support.
