What’s the hazard?
In installations with swing-style landing doors, some home elevators may have been installed with hazardous gaps. It is possible for a young child to be trapped between the landing door and the elevator car door, which poses a risk for serious injury or death should the elevator be operated while the child is entrapped.
ALL home elevators with swing-style landing doors should be measured for hazardous gaps to confirm if safety devices are required.
This hazard ONLY applies to home elevators that have swing-style landing doors.
