Holeless MRL

Description

Schumacher's Hydraulic MRL Elevators are ideal when space for a machine room is not available; the power unit and controller are located in the hoistway. Since no jack hole is required for Holeless MRL Elevators, they eliminate the risk of jack corrosion and oil leakage. If travel extends beyond 12’6”, Schumacher utilizes a telescoping jack, which requires an additional 1” in hoistway width.

Travel

  • Low-rise buildings
  • Up to 16 feet of rise

Speed

  • Up to 150 fpm
