Residential Elevator – Inline Gear Drive

The Inline Gear Drive Elevator is the elevator to choose when there is minimal space. It requires less space than conventional elevators because it does not require a machine room and is thus defined as a machine room-less system.

This system runs at a speed of 40 feet per minute and has a load capacity of 1,000 lbs.

Residential Elevator – Hydraulic Drive

The Hydraulic Drive Elevator provides the smoothest, quietest hydraulic drive on the market.

Hydraulic systems utilize a ram or piston to raise and lower the cab by filling or releasing fluid into an airtight cylinder.

This system runs at a speed of 40 feet per minute and has a load capacity of 1,000 lbs.

Residential Elevator – Winding Drum

The Winding Drum Elevator is based on early elevator lift assemblies utilizing heavy-duty aircraft cables attached to a rotating drum. The drum is attached to a variable speed motor to move the elevator cab and ensure smooth stops and starts. It is the smoothest and quietest drum drive on the market.

This system runs at a speed of 40 feet per minute and has a load capacity of 1,000 lbs.

Residential Elevator – Luxury Redefined

The Luxury Redefined Elevator is designed as a heavy-duty luxury elevator. It utilizes many of the features of a small commercial elevator and provides fully customizable interiors.

Two hydraulic drive systems are offered:

  • 1,000 lb. capacity with a travel speed of 40 feet per minute
  • 1,400 lb. capacity with travel speeds of 30 or 40 feet per minute
