Here at Elevators Ltd we are experts when it comes to the maintenance and construction of the perfect elevator. After all, it’s what the team are trained and educated for. When it comes to etiquette however it is important to recognise that it does not take a professional degree or course to learn how to behave in certain social settings. With this said, we want to be as helpful as possible to our readers so we’ve decided to go over some of the most important elevator etiquette rules…

Holding the Door Open

Genuinely most people will hold the door open for others that are clearly heading in the direction of a lift so it has now become etiquette to carry out this behaviour. Of course it is possible to misjudge a persons actions and they may end up walking right past but at least you can say you tried to do the right thing.

Personal Space

Elevators can be quite small which means that a full one often leaves little room for a personal bubble of space. With this said it is important to remember that very few people want to be uncomfortably close to a stranger so it is always best to ensure that everyone has equal room in such situations.

Full to Capacity

Following on from the point above it is also important to recognise when an elevator can no longer fit anyone inside. In fact many elevators have a capacity limit and trying to squeeze in can not only cause a safety risk, you wont win yourself any points with the people already inside.

Now you understand what is and is not acceptable in a lift it is time to go out and spread the word! After all, the last thing you want to do is make a bad first impression. In fact, the team here at Elevators Ltd are all about making good first impressions which is why we work extremely hard in order to provide some of the best elevators possible.
