Machine-Room-Less (MRL) elevator. MRLs were first introduced into the industry in 1996 and are now the main design of elevator installed all over the world.
The MRLs that we source are manufactured in SPAIN. They meet all Australian standard requirements, are commercially available and globally trusted.
We recommend, yes. If your building was designed to have a lift machine room, it probably means that the lift shaft was never designed for a modern day MRL. Although an MRL may fit inside your lift shaft, the shaft walls may not have been designed with sound isolation in mind, or the top floor may not be suitable to house the new control equipment. We always recommend that existing machine rooms be re-used for new MRL equipment. This includes the new controller and possibly the new machine. Every building is different and we can explore the options for you.
Unfortunately no. During the replacement works, the lift will be completely out of action for the duration. We recommend providing owners and residents with as much notice as possible.
Often the answer is no. With most lifts, there are modernisation packages that are available which can provide the same reliability and longevity, at a lower cost. Some lift designs suit a major upgrade, but other lift designs are classified as problematic requiring replacement. Every lift is different. We can inspect your lift and provide the options that are available.
