Elevator Techonology - Where Its Been, Where Its Going

Gain a better understanding of the complex world of elevators. Learn about the major changes in the elevator industry as we unveil the major differences in conventional elevator technology.

By understanding what separates traditional traction elevators and traditional hydraulic elevators, you will be able to decide which application would best suit your needs. Discover the biggest advance of the elevator industry: the advent of the MRL or Machine Room-Less elevator. This innovation in the elevator industry is widely considered the successor to the standard hydraulic due to its higher quality and its oil-free focus on a more "green" elevator. We will discuss how the standard MRL elevator operates and the different variety of options an architect has in relation to the MRL. Lastly, the presentation will cover some of the future movements within the elevator industry and open the door for any elevator related questions.
