Residential Elevator Doors

To The Top Home Elevator offers a few door options for residential elevators. The standard option is a manual “swing” door that opens and closes like any other door would in your home. As a result, you will have the option of choosing a door design that matches the other doors throughout your home. Another option to choose from if you decide to go with an elevator from Savaria are bi-folding doors. These doors are available in white metal or stainless steel and fold open when the elevator full reaches the floor destination that is selected. Below is a video that shows how these doors open and close.

The other option available is the automatic sliding doors. Automatic sliding doors open and close for easy access adding convenience and elegance to your home as well as modern appearance to your elevator. They can be finished in powder coated paint, stainless steel, or glass. The doors are available as a complete system, or in combination with a swing-style landing door. Residential auto sliding doors function like full-sized passenger elevator doors. To reduce safety risks, the doors are linked together when installed on both the landing and elevator car.

Serving Chicagoland for Over 25 Years!


Our new elevator is up and running! It was helpful to ride the showroom elevator first so that we understood what a home elevator was. You were great to work with and we are thrilled.

To The Top Home Elevators was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of residential elevators. It was our first time integrating an elevator into an existing home. They coordinated with our architect and supported our general contractor throughout the building process. Our clients were so thrilled with their elevator that we plan to incorporate elevators into more of our home designs.

From our first phone call to the office, To The Top was with us on every step! They worked with our architect and contractor throughout the planning phase and gave us design options to make the elevator blended in with our home’s décor.

We highly recommend EHLS’ consulting and contracting services to make your home or place of work accessible. EHLS is qualified, professional and creative. Without exaggeration, EHLS is one of the best companies we have had the opportunity to work with.

My whole experience with your company was trusting and a pleasure.
