Based on car speed of 350 FPM • Cab Height = 8′ -0″
500 FPM = 13″ of overhead and 8″ of pit depth
Depending on job specifics, the overhead or pit on pocket mounted machines may need to be increased.

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

This design utilizes a gearless machine, ropes and counterweights instead of hydraulic equipment. The main guide rails are mounted on each side of the car and an additional pair of counterweight rails is located on one side. The gearless machine, along with the related drive equipment is all installed inside the hoistway eliminating the need for a machine room saving you valuable floor space.

  • No risk of oil contamination to the ground
  • Accommodates front and rear openings in any configuration
  • Has no need for a machine room
  • Has greater power efficiency than hydraulic applications
  • Allows significantly higher car speeds than hydraulic designs
  • Generally cheaper than traditional traction applications.
