Notes:

  • Overhead dimensions are based on 6 foot high car gate.
  • Two section car gates are not recommended for high usage installations or wide openings.
  • For extra high door opening requirements, or special conditions, consult your representative.

Standard Cab Height H = 8′-0″
Minimum Overhead for Single Section Gates
= 14′ -6″
Minimum Overhead for Two Section gates
= 12′ -4″


Code year adoptions and local code variations may affect the hoistway size. Verify all dimensions with MEI prior to construction.

This is the traditional design used for decades. lt utilizes a hydraulic jack installed in the ground. The jack is located directly under the car, near the center of the platform.

  • Usually the lowest material cost application.
  • Accommodates front and rear openings in any configuration.
  • No extensive pit or overhead is required.
  • Available for both low and high capacity cars.
  • Of all the application types, this equipment package is the easiest to install.
