I am looking for a machine-room-less elevator to go from 1st to 2nd floor of a penthouse unit, located on the 15th floor of a lofts project. It needs to meet commercial requirements, but the "big-guys" (IE: Gen-2) are to large in their cab sizes. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Might try a medical equipment company [wheelchairs, hospital beds, etc.], many of which also have lifts, single-person elevators, "stair-climbers", etc.

You might contact ThyssenKrupp or their residential division Access Elevator. (877) 230-0303. Depending on where the project is located you might also try speaking with TL Sheild (Southern CA) (818)509-8228, or with Residential Elevator, Inc. (located in Florida, but handles projects nationwide) (850)926-6022.

Access Elevator is one that we specified for a recreation center project. They have something called a LULA (limited use/limited access) elevator that sounds like it might fit your needs.

LULA elevators are probably too utilitarian for access to a Penthouse Unit. We have had success specifying CEMCO Lift products (800-962-3626) out of Hartfield,PA. We have found that a 'local' elevator/lift company usually wins the bid on these types of elevators when the major elevator contract is let, these local companies are more suited to customizing the elevators for residential use and providing the maintenance required for the homeowner. On many of our projects, these local elevator companies buy from CEMCO and modify the elevator for its specific use. On our last project, coachhomes in Naples, FL, the Model CMR-450 CEMCO Residential Elevator was used.

We have used LULA elevators for handicap access usage only. We were advised that you have to lock it off so that it can not be used for convenience or it will become a maintenance problem.
