Traction elevators require a greater initial investment; however, they are ideal for high travel, rapid speed, and increased pedestrian traffic applications. Combined with modern permanent magnet gearless machines and VVVF Regenerative Drives, traction elevators are a green solution for mid and high rise buildings.
A no nonsense workhorse for the industry for over 75 years. Hydraulic elevators offer safe and reliable vertical transportation for low-rise buildings. Paired with modern non-proprietary solid state controllers and above ground twin post design hydraulic elevators are a cost effective alternative to traction elevators.
Modernization is the rehabilitation of an older elevator system in order to improve pedestrian traffic and increase the energy efficiency. Modernizing insures the safety and code compliance of the elevator for continuous reliable operation.
Modernization of the cab and fixtures will also ensure that not only is the elevator equipment up to current code but the cab can be customized to match any building decor.
