Traction Lifts is essentially a box on steel ropes that are looped around sheaves connected to an electric motor. The sheaves have a counterweight attached at their end to balance the load of the elevator car. Traction on the ropes raises and lowers the elevator. The main advantage of a traction lift is its higher speed compared with the hydraulic variety. This means the traction system can be used in tall, modern, 21st-century buildings. The ride in a traction elevator is also smoother. In terms of energy usage, traction lifts are generally more energy efficient. This is due to the differences the way the two types of lifts work.
Our hydraulic elevators are designed for machine room less application, saves electricity up to 50%. Smooth operation with compact mechanism.
The geared elevator is made up of a motor that has a gearbox attached to it. The main function of the gears is to power the wheel that moves the ropes. This type of elevator can travel up to speeds of up to 500 feet per minute. The maximum distance it can travel is 250 feet.
Gearless elevators don’t have a gear for speed regulation. This explains why they can move as fast as 2,000 feet per minute and can also travel a maximum of 2,000 feet. They are the best option for a very tall building of many storeys.
