We provide two types of passenger elevator installations: hydraulic and traction. In most cases, hydraulic installations are ideal for buildings with five or fewer stories. We specialize in custom jobs to fit a wide range of lift sizes and capacities.
For high-rise buildings, traction equipment provides greater speed and capacity than hydraulic. We can engineer traction elevators to your desired speed and capacity specifications. Geared traction equipment is designed for speeds 200-500 feet per minute, while gearless traction can reach speeds up to 1,200 feet per minute and is appropriate for high-rise buildings.
