Elevators can be a luxury in apartment buildings, but they are often necessities for businesses. Most businesses that operate facilities with more than one level need freight elevators to move materials and goods between different floors. Retailers often find that passenger elevators are the only way to meet the needs of customers and satisfy legal and regulatory requirements. Elevators are the only mode of interior transport that can easily accommodate people in wheelchairs, mothers with baby carriages, people with disabilities who cannot navigate the stairs, and shoppers with shopping carts.
Elevators are used for many different tasks and in various settings. Most businesses that sell directly to consumers find that the issues concerning elevators in consumer settings have a significant impact on the bottom line. Passenger elevators, for example, are a necessary expense in a multilevel building that cannot easily be served by wheelchair ramps because of the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Decisions regarding business locations may be based on the availability of elevators in the target facility specifically due to the expense required to install elevators in a building that does not already have them in place.
Freight and passenger elevators are also a continuing business expense. They must be maintained to code and cleaned and serviced regularly. Read more about elevators from the links on this Business.com page.
