Machine Room Less Elevators

Machine-Room-Less (MRL) Elevators are modern traction lift systems that use an electric hoisting machine located within the top of the elevator shaft to hoist the elevator car. Eliminating the penthouse machine room that is necessary for Traction Elevators, the Machine-Room-Less (MRL) Lifts is gaining popularity because they require less space, are energy efficient, and efficiently satisfy the speed and travel requirements of mid-rise buildings. Machine-Room-Less (MRL) Lifts travel at a speed of 500’ | 152 m per minute with a maximum distance of up to 250’ | 76 m. A control room is required at the highest elevator landing and must be adjacent to the elevator shaft and within 150’ | 46 m of the machine.
