Cantilever Roped Hydraulic Elevators

Cantilever Roped Hydraulic Elevators

The cantilever roped hydraulic elevator is a holeless design where wire ropes are utilized in conjunction with a hydraulic jack. The elevator car is lifted with a 2:1 ratio which means that for every foot that the hydraulic jack rises, the elevator car rises two feet.

  • No jack hole drilling is required which reduces cost and eliminates the possibility of ground contamination.
  • Travel can be as great as 100 feet without drilling for a hydraulic jack.
  • Accommodates front and side openings.
  • No extensive pit or overhead clearance is required.
  • Because the rail and hydraulic jack equipment is located on the side or rear of the elevator, additional hoistway space is required.
  • Since the rail and rail brackets are mounted to one wall, additional rail forces are applied.
  • Requires more installation time than a conventional installation.

Thank you for sending Jonathan to my home yesterday. He did an excellent job, was very professional, and was able to fix the elevator quickly. You have a new lifetime customer!

I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how professional, knowledgeable and courteous were the two gentlemen that you sent to work on our elevator at our school, Scott G. and Peter A. They were wonderful! Also thank you for always having Robyn M. service our elevator. He is a true blessing!

- Administrative Assistant, Saints Peter and Paul School

He was there in less than an hour after she placed the call. He always does an amazing job. He knows exactly what's wrong with the elevator all the time, he's great at what he does. He's pleasant, delightful, and so kind towards her parents. He's a real God-send.
