Lobby and MachineRoom Communication Systems

Per ASME A17.1 2019/CSA B44-19 ‘Safety Code for Elevators and Escalators’, buildings where elevators travel is 60 feet or more, must install in building rescue coordination.

Positioned strategically in the building’s lobby or machine rooms, our Lobby and MachineRoom options serve as the first point of contact for elevator maintenance teams and first responders. This offers them a comprehensive overview of the situation within each elevator, providing rapid response times and informed decision-making.

Choose from seamless two-way, person-to-person voice communication for installations from one elevator up to 116. All components are engineered to ensure effective communication, providing reliability and peace of mind.
