About Delta

Sustainability

As a company, Delta Elevator is on the path toward greater sustainability. We have recently invested in energy-efficient lighting, insulation and siding in our factory and offices. Our service vehicles use a “flex fuel” system to lower fossil fuel consumption.

We also offer green products and services to help you lessen your impact on the environment.

Delta's locally-manufactured elevators can help you reduce your building’s ecological footprint

Buy Local

Delta elevators are manufactured in Ontario, and all our major parts suppliers are located in North America rather than overseas. This reduces shipping costs and greenhouse gas emissions due to reduced distance to get your new elevator or parts to your site.

Eco Benefits of Machine Room-Less (MRL) Elevators

MRL elevators, most suited to mid-rise buildings, use a compact, gearless machine located right in the elevator shaft, eliminating the need for a separate overhead machine room.

In addition, MRL elevators consume less energy because they:

Because MRL elevators are gearless, they do not require a lubricated gearcase—this reduces the potential for chemical leaks and human exposure to harmful lubricants.

Note that these ecological benefits are tempered by the fact that MRLs are more complex and require more material to manufacture than other types of elevators. There are many other factors to consider, such as how much the elevator will be used. Contact Delta for a free design consultation to help you choose the right elevator.

Eco-Friendly Options for Hydraulic Elevators

Hydraulic elevators are still the most common devices in North America in low to mid-rise buildings. Hydraulic elevators require oil to maintain smooth operation; Delta offers biodegradable hydraulic oil to maintain your device.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system does not directly award credits for elevators, but elevating devices from Delta can assist in obtaining LEED credits in various categories. Some of the relevant credits you may be eligible for include:
