RE Traction Elevator

RE Traction Elevators

Traction elevators come from the commercial elevator industry, operating with a system of counterweights, steel cables, and a sheave. Residential Elevators is the only manufacturer in the home elevator industry to utilize a true traction operating system resulting in a trusted, reliable product that is guaranteed to last for years.

While most home elevator manufacturers use a chain and sprocket system, a sheave creates a much smoother, quieter ride. Traction elevators are referred to as “machine roomless” or “MRL” elevators, as the mechanical equipment is installed above the elevator in the hoistway. They are more environmentally friendly than other systems, as no hydraulic fluid is required for operation.
