Personnel Elevators and Manlifts
Personnel elevators, sometimes called manlifts, or passenger hoists are used to move workers and material to those “tough-to-reach” locations. Typically, Alimak rack and pinion elevators stand up better to harsh conditions because they do not use wire rope sheaves and hydraulics. Our personnel elevators use the rack and pinion design, which consists of a car-mounted electric motor. The motor drives the pinion, which drives the car up and down. To stop the elevator car, multiple electric disc brakes are used. As a fail-safe, the brakes engage automatically when power is lost. The car can then be lowered safely.
However, we have had incidence were a traction elevator was better suited for the application. Let American Service Group work with you to provide options that suits your needs. With ASG personnel elevators, installation times are faster, service costs lower, and maintenance simpler.
