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 single- stage 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.
