MRL – Motor Room Less
This revolutionary systems employs a smaller sheave than traditional elevators. Reduced sheave allows the machine to be mounted in the hoistway itself eliminating the need for a bulky, space wasting machine room on the roof. MRL is most suited to high usage applications & ensures a smoother, quieter performance with the most up to date technology available.
Hydraulic Lifts are the more traditional approach to elevators using basic technology. They are most suited to low usage applications and when budget constraints are an issue.
