The design utilizes wire ropes in conjunction with two hydraulic jacks to lift the elevator at a 1:2 ratio. For each foot the jack rises, the elevator rises two feet.

Advantages:

  • Jack hole is not required. Eliminating the cost of drilling and the risk of ground contamination from oil leak.
  • Offered in both low and high capacity elevators.
  • Accommodates front and rear opening configurations.
  • Available with higher travels up to approximately 90’-0”.
  • Minimal pit and overhead requirements.

Disadvantages:

  • May require a larger hoistway width to accommodate jacks mounted on either side of the platform.
  • Governor access door is required in the overhead unless a special governor is provided.
  • Side openings are not an option.
  • Material cost and installation time is typically higher when compared to an in-ground application.

Notes for Dual Roped

  • Hoistway widths and depths can be reduced by 1 inch if conditions require and hoistway plumbness is maintained.
  • All elevators shown here comply with NEII and ADA space requirements for wheel chair access.
  • 2000 pound elevators must have single-slide doors to meet NEII and ADA requirements for wheelchair access.
  • 2500, 3000 & 3500 pound elevators shown here comply with NEII and ADA requirements for ambulance stretcher access, unless equipped with center-parting doors.
