Personnel Elevators & Manlifts
Personnel elevators are used to transport workers and materials to hard to reach locations in industrial facilities. They eliminate the need for wire rope sheaves, enclosed hoistways, machine rooms and/or hydraulic equipment which can wear rapidly in harsh environments.
Personnel elevators offer faster installation times, lower service costs and straightforward maintenance procedures. These industrial elevators are designed for robust operation with user-friendly controls to ensure trouble-free operation.
Personnel elevators, also called manlifts, passenger hoists or material hoists, feature a rack and pinion drive for safe, reliable operation. Our elevators 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.
