Hydraulic Passenger Elevators
Hydraulic elevators have been in service around the world for more than a century. They use proven, oil-based lifting technology in low to mid-rise buildings (up to 6 floors) to provide a robust and reliable elevating device.
Hydraulic elevators are relatively simple in design compared to traction elevators. This makes them a cost-effective choice when the entire product life cycle is considered—from the initial installation through to regular maintenance.
Under normal circumstances with regular preventive maintenance, many hydraulic elevators last more than 20 years before requiring major upgrades.
Hydraulic elevators generally have fewer parts than traction elevators, which makes them easier to maintain and service. In addition, there are relatively few proprietary parts, which means they can be serviced by the owner’s choice of elevator contractor.
