Commercial Lifts

Orion Lift

The Orion lift is designed with features you would expect in a high-rise elevator but built for commercial low-rise buildings. The Savaria Orion elevator was designed for limited use/limited application (LU/LA) commercial projects and is well-suited for use in educational settings, places of worship and up to 3-story professional offices.

With the features you would expect to see in a high-rise elevator such as automatic sliding doors and commercial filters, the Orion elevator delivers a professional appearance and a smooth ride for passengers.
