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


This is a holeless design limited to low capacity applications. Wire ropes are utilized in conjunction with a hydraulic jack to lift the car at a 1:2 ratio. For every foot that the jack rises, the car rises two feet. The jack and rail equipment is mounted either to the side or to the rear of the car, depending upon the opening configuration.

  • No jack hole is required and with that there is no risk of oil contamination in the ground.
  • Front & side openings can be easily accommodated.
  • No extensive pit or overhead is required.
