Elevator Construction

All Great Lakes hydraulic elevators come in a wide variety of speeds, capacities and travel heights. These options determine the size and horsepower of the power unit, which in turn determines the size of the machine room. The most desirable machine room location is on the lowest floor served, adjacent to the elevator hoistway. If necessary, it may be located remotely from the hoistway. The next several sections will break down elevator construction.

Hydraulic Elevator Equipment

The modern version of the famous Hydraulic elevators invented more than sixty years ago remains unchallenged for smooth, quiet and efficient operation in buildings up to 79’ 0” of travel. The key is it’s patented control valve, which regulates the flow of the oil to the jack, providing the exact supply necessary for operation. There is no vertical load placed on the building because the Hydraulic elevator is supported from below.

With our 3-stage Telescoping holeless jacks, your elevators reach heights never before offered on any Great Lakes Elevator holeless model. In fact, the 3-stage Telescoping jack allows travel up to approximately twenty feet higher than previous elevator product offerings.
