Home Elevator Safety Notice

Gap between inner and outer doors danger:

Your home elevator may have a safety issue that affects small children or pets. There is a space between the elevator shaft door (the door that opens into a room) and the elevator’s inner folding gate (see diagram).  If this space is too wide, a small child  may become trapped between the two doors.  This can cause serious injury to the child if the elevator goes into motion.  The latest elevator code (not presently adopted in North Carolina*) requires that the space between the elevator folding gate and the elevator shaft be no more than ¾ “ and the total gap between the door and gate be less than 4”.

*North Carolina does not yet require this latest code.  If your elevator shaft is framed with 2″ X 4″ construction and the elevator car is no more than 1/2″ from the floor threshold, your elevator meets the current elevator code being enforced in North Carolina.

Fix for the problem:

Carolina Home Lift recommends that homeowners install door build-outs (see diagram) to the inside of the shaft door to reduce the space between the door and gate to ¾” and the total gap space to less than 4”. 

Door Build-Outs:

Door build-outs can be custom-made of wood or  they can be simple molded plastic baffles which are inexpensive and easy to install.  Installation of such a door build-out will bring your home elevator into compliance with the latest elevator code.  

Carolina Home Lift further recommends that flimsy  folding gates be replaced with code-compliant reinforced gates known as “hard hinged”  accordion gates.
