The design utilizes wire ropes in conjunction with a single hydraulic jack to lift the elevator at a 1:2 ratio. For each foot the jack rises, the elevator rises two feet. The platform is supported by a cantilevered car frame with the jack, rails, and roping located on one side of the hoistway.


  • Jack hole is not required. Eliminating the cost of drilling and the risk of ground contamination from oil leak.
  • Accommodates front, rear and side opening configurations.
  • Allows for glass walls on sides where equipment is not located.
  • Rail bracket attachment only required on one wall of the hoistway.
  • Available with higher travels up to approximately 90’-0”.
  • Minimal pit and overhead requirements.


  • May require a larger hoistway width to accommodate rail and jack equipment being mounted on only one side of the car or at the rear.
  • Additional rail force considerations are necessary to accommodate rail brackets being mounted only on one wall.
  • Governor access door is required in the overhead unless a special governor is provided.
  • Limited to 3000-lb. capacity rating.
  • Installation time is typically higher when compared to an in-ground application.
