Roped Hydraulic System
Roped Hydraulic Home Elevators from Custom Elevator Manufacturing Company Inc. are designed for reliability and easy maintenance where the hydraulic cylinder is completely above the ground, safe from oil leaks and corrosion. This environmentally safe design does not require penetration below the pit level nor does it require additional overhead room for the elevator machine.
Our vibration-free submersible hydraulic power unit is located in a room or space outside of the elevator hoistway where it is simple and safe to access and eliminates the disturbance from any machine noise within the elevator car as found with other designs.
Our residential elevators are furnished with two 3/8″ diameter hoist ropes and an instantaneous car safety that is activated by slackening in any single hoist rope. All of our safety devices are tested and certified in accordance with the American Standard of Mechanical Engineers (ASME A17.1/Canada CSA-B44) Safety Code for Elevators.
