Residential Safety – Spacing Between Doors

Safety Issue with Residential Elevators

Issue #1 – Spacing Between Doors


Many home elevators have been installed with gaps of 3 inches or greater between the hoistway swing door and the collapsible gate – creating a serious safety issue.





A young child or pet can get caught in the space between the swing door and the collapsible gate when the elevator goes into motion.
