Inground Hydraulic Elevators

Inground Hydraulic Elevators

The Inground Hydraulic Elevator is the traditional design used for hydraulic elevators. It utilizes a single hydraulic jack installed in the ground. The hydraulic jack is located directly below the elevator car, near the center of the platform.

  • Easiest elevator type to install.
  • Accommodates front and rear openings with any configuration.
  • No extensive pit or overhead clearance is required.
  • Less moving parts, less maintenance, and lowest cost of operation.
  • Cost-effective solution for low-rise buildings with only a few landings. Typically, 3-4 stories or less.
  • The hydraulic cylinder should be checked during maintenance to avoid leaks that could lead to oil contamination in the ground.
  • Because the hydraulic jack goes into the ground the same distance as the travel of the elevator, this option requires jack hole drilling which can be expensive and not always possible in some conditions.

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.
