Are you looking for a proven cost effective alternative to conventional elevators for your project? The Modular Elevator System includes a structural steel framed hoist way complete with the elevator pre-installed in the structure. The hoist way includes one-hour rated walls, all electrical and mechanical components pre-installed including the pit light, pit ladder and GFI as standard in the system. With lead times five to six months faster than conventional elevator manufacturers and approximately 4 to 5 days of installation The Modular Elevator System is the fastest vertical solution for your project.
The Modular Elevator System is a pre-designed pre-engineered system. Please see our CAD and PDF drawings to design our footprint in your project. Unlike conventional systems The Modular Elevator arrives at your site as a "TURN-KEY" complete system. This eliminates expensive onsite storage of elevator components and coordination of trades in the hoist way. The Modular Elevator System is non-proprietary meaning any State licensed elevator mechanic can work on our elevator without proprietary software or tools. This can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in maintenance costs over the life of the elevator. The Modular Elevator System is ideal for all exterior and interior applications. All components are from World Class Manufacturers of elevator components and are available locally throughout the country.
