Why our customers chose modular elevators


The Benefits of the Modular Solution:


Shorter Lead Time: Building elevators in a factory eliminates onsite delays such as inclement weather or other construction trades. This eliminates delays that you find onsite such as inclement weather or other construction trades. Additionally, we are simultaneously building the hoistway, car and machine room. Therefore, a fully assembled, high-quality hydrualic elevator can leave our plant in eight-ten weeks after the drawings have been approved.

Pre-Installation: The elevator cab is pre-installed inside the hoistway. Also, the design makes it easy to crane the elevator into place in stackable 50’ sections. When a modular elevator arrives, it is ready in less than a week for testing and inspection once power is on. This minimizes job site disruption by the elevator mechanics.

Higher Quality: Factory-built modular elevators meet strict quality and tolerance standards. Each elevator is checked daily for proper welds, alignment and assembly; the inspection team can simply walk the horizontal hoistway for quality control. Also, we use industry-standard parts and components; the very same found in stick-built elevators. In addition, all of our components are non-proprietary, making servicing and maintenance easier and less expensive.

Safer Construction: Modular elevators are simply safer to build. There is no scaffolding to erect and no mechanics dangling from ropes. Also, onsite work is completed on the cartop instead of work platforms.

Modular Solution = Hoistway + Fully Assembled Elevator



Elevators are traditionally built by laboriously constructing a hoistway as part of the building with wood, steel or concrete blocks. Components are lowered or carried into the vertical space through dangerous shaft openings or hatches. Then, they are painstakingly assembled one piece at a time.

Because this old-fashioned way takes so long and is unsafe, a more logical solution was born. Modular elevator construction literally turns elevator construction on its side in a high-quality factory environment.

Producing elevators horizontally allows for safe and quick construction. The hoistway is a tough, durable steel frame. It is wrapped in drywall to achieve the fire-rating. The horizontal shaft then has an elevator pre-installed inside. This includes the elevator car, rails, wiring and drive system. They are complete units ready for setup, adjustment and testing. This innovative manufacturing process is a faster, safer way to build an elevator and a better choice for any structure from two to 15 stories.
