Safety Features for Your Montgomery County Home Elevator

Arlington, VA 22209_0015

From Rockville to Bethesda to the Potomac, there are many beautiful Montgomery County residences that could use a home elevator. Available in areas such as Germantown, Silver Spring, Gaithersburg, or anywhere in Montgomery County, a residential elevator makes life convenient and safer for those with mobility issues. Read on to learn about some of the safety features that are included or could be added to your residential elevator.


The first and most important safety concerns addressed are those that involve entering and exiting your elevator. The automatic elevator doors are designed to make getting in and out comfortable. You can also have additional safety gates installed if you would like. The purpose of these gates is to protect children and animals from trying to enter your elevator without supervision.


Another necessity for the residential elevator is a handrail. The handrail further aids you and others in safely getting in and out of your home elevator. You can have your safety handrails in rounded shape or flat. Furthermore, there are many other customizations to make your handrails look great and fit your home design while being a functional safety feature.

Battery Backup

Lastly, power outages are a big concern for people who are wary about investing in a home elevator. But the truth is that you will not be trapped in your home elevator in the event of a power outage. Residential elevators are built with a battery backup system that provides emergency lighting and enough power to safely lower passengers to the bottom floor. With battery backup, you also have the option to add light up indications to tell you when the elevator is running. There are many other safety features you can have in your Montgomery County elevator, in addition to regular inspections by a professional to keep your elevator safe.
