The car and hoistway door/gate system that you select has an important and profound impact on your elevator, both in terms of beauty & aesthetics, and in terms of safety. We are proud to exclusively offer the safest and most beautiful car doors and gates in the industry.
Providing the Safest Residential Elevator Doors
At Arrow Lift, ensuring the safety of each elevator component is a top priority. The residential elevator door is no exception. We only work with top-rated manufacturers to bring you door and gate models designed according to industry safety standards. With layers of protection built into each design, you can be sure that your residential elevator door is a secure part of your home elevator.
In addition, every elevator car gate or door we provide comes equipped with light curtains and software checks that detect the presence of people, pets, or objects between the car door and the hoistway door prior to operation.
These provisions exceed code requirements and make our elevators the safest in the industry.
Residential Elevator Door & Gate Options
Your elevator can be fitted with one of any number of combinations of doors and gates. Each door or gate can typically be customized by selecting material and finish.
Explore the residential elevator doors and gates below to find the ideal options for your elevator.
Symmetry Safety Car Door (SSD)
With “safety” in the name, it’s clear that this three-paneled door is designed to be reliable. This residential elevator door model comes in a manual or power-operated option. Arrow Lift also offers a special door frame designed to house the Symmetry Safety Car Door. When the SSD and the door frame combine, the space between the elevator car door and the landing door is minimized. In other words, entering and exiting the elevator is safer.
Your elevator can be provided with one of any number of combinations of doors and gates. Each door or gate can typically be customized by selecting material & finish.
Accordion Car Door
The next residential elevator door option is the accordion car door. This features multiple panels that cover the width of the elevator entrance. Like many other options, these doors can be manually operated or automatic.
Accordion doors are a popular choice when it comes to residential elevator doors. You have a range of elevator door designs to choose from. Design options include unfinished hardwood veneers, solid and perforated aluminum, clear and smoked acrylic options and more.
Enterprise Scissor Car Gate
Also known as collapsible gates, scissor car gates are a manually operated option for your residential elevator door. Enterprise car gates take the scissor gate aesthetic to the next level. The classic look of this gate can add a rich architectural element to your home elevator. You can ensure the gate aligns with your decor with vintage bronze, stainless steel, and oil rubbed brass options.
Wrap-Around Car Door
For a wider walk-through opening, consider a wrap-around car door. This rolling residential elevator door wraps around the cab's outside, turning a corner as it opens. This door style comes in manual and automatic options and allows users to make the most of small elevator spaces. Additionally, the door is designed with safety in mind. There are hinge tubes to prevent pinching and a safety edge to reverse the door's direction.
2 or 3-Speed Elevator Door Systems
The elevator entrance consists of two parts: the car door/gate and the landing door. While the car door travels with the elevator, the landing door stays put at each landing. If you’re looking for a modern home elevator that feels more like a commercial elevator both visually, and in the way you enter it, then this option might be for you. Combining these two sliding door options will allow you to open the elevator automatically with just a single-touch.
