Roped Hydraulic vs. MRL Elevators
Residential elevators come in a wide variety of designs, with plenty of options in regard to finishes and cab walls, sills, fixtures, gates, and COP.
With a modern design and a bronze, brass or stainless finish, the COP (or Car Operating Panel) is often compatible with any 24 VDC system. It can feature up to 6 stops, making it suitable for both residential and commercial uses.
Moreover, there are many extras available for your COP, including a built-in phone, and a plug and play option. A residential elevator service can cater to the specific needs of your building, and install or repair both roped hydraulic and MRL elevators.
The roped hydraulic elevator
The roped hydraulic elevator is a popular choice for low-rise residential buildings, with up to 45 feet of rise. Due to its zero holes design, it can be easily integrated into both new and existing architectures, with no need to make extra room for the hydraulic cylinder.
This type of elevator features a quiet hydraulic drive and has a capacity of 750 to 950 lbs, making it one of the best residential elevators on the market. It comes in two sizes with both standard and luxury cabs; one size is more suitable for buildings with limited space, while the other is a full–size residential elevator. Quality packages also feature automatic controls with heavy duty fixtures.
MRL stands for machine room-less traction, and this type of elevator is best suited for low to mid rise buildings with a maximum rise of 250 feet. The main advantage is that since the machine itself is located in the hoist-way, there is no need for a traditional machine room.
An MRL elevator is able to reach greater speeds than a hydraulic one, while facing none of its problems, such as smell and soil corrosion.Contact us to get full enquiry.
