Elevator Installations

Florida State Elevator offers installation, service, modernization, and repair on just about any type of hospital or freight elevator located in the Dade, Broward, and Palm county regions of South Florida.  And yes... we are fully licensed to serve you.

Hospital Elevators

Hospital elevators (also known as stretcher lifts) are used for simple transportation for patients in a wheelchair, stretcher, or (in some cases) a hospital bed. These elevators must be built to run quickly, yet gently to virtually eliminate any noise, jerks, or shocks that could disturb a patient's medical equipment (including life support systems).   There also must be enough room to accommodate the maximum amount of space needed for doctors, nurses, and any other medical personnel.  Request Quote

Passenger Elevators

For hotels, motels, office buildings, apartment buildings, and condominiums.

We recommend installing a hydraulic elevator for low to medium rise buildings having less than 50 feet of travel, and where quality performance and reliable operation is essential. 

A passenger elevator's capacity is related to the available floor space. Generally passenger elevators are available in capacities from 1,000 to 6,000 pounds in 500 lb increments.

Generally passenger elevators in buildings eight floors or less are hydraulic or electric, which can reach speeds up to 200 ft/min hydraulic and up to 500 ft/min electric. In buildings up to ten floors, electric and gearless elevators are likely to have speeds up to 500 ft/min, and above ten floors speeds begin at 500 ft/min up to 2000 ft/min.

The two main types of passenger elevators are:
  • Hydraulic elevators are designed to reduce installation time and costs.  When ground conditions are poor or unknown a holeless hydraulic elevator is recommended. Request Quote
  • Traction elevators are designed for medium to high rise buildings having over 50 feet of travel, where quality performance and high speeds are desired.   Traction elevators are designed to operate with speeds up to 350 feet per minute. Gearless elevators are to be used when speeds are greater than 500 feet per minute.  Request Quote

Limited-Use Limited Access Elevators (LULA's)

Great for Churches and Non-commercial Social Meeting Places!

Today’s growing awareness of the need for greater accessibility, as well as legislation such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, has created a growing demand for functional, convenient, and affordable elevator systems.

Florida State Elevator has taken those needs one step further to offer you limited use/limited application elevators that can be integrated into your existing architecture and offer the quality and style you expect. Limited-use Limited-access elevators typically are rated at 1400 lbs. capacity and can be used in churches, schools, libraries, small businesses, multi-family housing and other buildings, where permitted by state and local code. These elevators can provide an affordable solution to your accessibility needs (especially for buildings not originally built with an elevator).
