A manufacturer has recalled a home elevator system due to the risk of small children becoming entrapped and injured or killed.
Residential Elevators announced the recall of the following models through the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC): Easy Rider, Horizon Lift, Luxury Lift, Luxury Lift Hydraulic, Luxury Lift Traction and RE.
According to the recall, the hazard is posed by a gap between the exterior landing door and the elevator car door.
About 31,000 Residential Elevators systems are under recall. The elevators were sold from 1986 through July 2022, at a cost of up to $35,000, including installation.
The doorway gap has led to one incident which “resulted in a spinal injury to a child,” according to the recall announcement.
People with the affected elevators in their homes are instructed to keep unsupervised children away from the elevator, and to contact Residential Elevators for information about installing space guards to prevent the hazard risk.
