Differences From a Traditional Elevator
Having one of these LU/LA elevators in your building is not the same as having a commercial elevator in the building. Commercial elevators are larger and require much more infrastructure than a LU/LA elevator. A LU/LA elevator also has limited reach, usually only for up to two floors difference, where a commercial elevator can handle dozens of floors.
Because of this smaller size, often areas that were once used for other purposes are designated for a LU/LA elevator. Spaces such as closets or small storage areas can readily accommodate a LU/LA elevator. This is often why users will find these kinds of elevators in out of the way places because they were retrofitted in the building using a closet or other small space.
These LU/LA elevators are designed to be used by a single person only. They are meant for people who are in wheelchairs or are otherwise mobility impaired and has a device to help them get around. While there is enough room for several people without mobility issues to use the LU/LA elevator, it is only meant for the disabled who are unable to use the stairs.
