Traction Low Rise Geared Elevators

Traction Low Rise Geared Elevators

The Traction Low Rise Geared Elevator utilizes a geared machine, ropes, and a counterweight. The main guide rails are mounted on the side of the elevator car and two additional guide rails are mounted on one side or the rear for the counterweight. The geared machine is generally located above the hoistway. In a non-typical application the geared machine can be located at a lower landing next to the hoistway.

  • No risk of oil contamination.
  • Accommodates front and side openings.
  • Nearly unlimited floor travel.
  • Has a greater efficiency than a typical geared traction application.
  • Allows for significantly greater car speeds than a hydraulic application.
  • Superior performance to that of a hydraulic application.
  • Substantially higher material cost than hydraulic applications.
  • Greater structural considerations because the elevator is supported at the top of the hoistway

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.
