Custom Industrial Elevators - Custom Construction Elevator

Custom Elevators

Sometimes a standard industrial elevator configuration will not work for your facility's needs, environmental conditions or available footprint. McDonough understands that customizing a standard solution helps lower costs and increase reliability through the use of modular components.

As our customized solutions are based upon standard design concepts, we offer faster installation times, lower service costs and straightforward maintenance procedures. Customized elevators are designed for robust operation with user-friendly controls to ensure trouble-free operation.

Our industrial hoists feature a rack and pinion drive for safe, reliable operation. They are designed for safety. The pinion, which is driven by an electric motor mounted on top of the car, mates with the tower rack allowing the car to travel up or down on command. An electric multiple disc brake on the motor is used to stop travel. A loss of power automatically sets the brake. In the event of a power failure, the car can be safely lowered to the nearest landing.
