Modular Elevator Manufacturing, Inc. Introduces First Modular MRL Elevator
Industry First Offers Efficient Design and Utilizes Less Power
CHATSWORTH, CA… Modular Elevator Manufacturing, Inc. (MEM), leading manufacturer of factory preinstalled commercial hydraulic and machine-room-less elevators, introduces the industry’s first Modular Machine Room-less (MMRL) elevator.
The MMRL from MEM is a full-size commercial elevator designed as a self-contained freestanding unit that can be delivered to a job site and installed in one day. The MMRL has a weight capacity of up to 3,500 lbs., is gurney compliant and travels at a speed of 350 feet per minute.
Most suitable for structures taller than five stories, the MMRL eliminates the need for a separate equipment room and requires less space. The product is installed in MEM’s freestanding modular hoistway, which is often connected to the building the elevator is servicing without having to share the same foundation. Compared to conventional hydraulic elevators, the MMRL elevator uses less power due to its efficient design and counterweighted configuration.
Interest in the MMRL is high and MEM has signed a contract to install the MMRL in a parking structure at a California mixed-use facility. The MMRL will be placed on-site during construction of the facility and used as a construction lift, eliminating the hassle and expense of renting a temporary lift.
“The MEM MMRL is an ideal, innovative product for projects that need an affordable vertical transportation solution,” says Tom Shield, President and Founder of MEM. “In addition, the MMRL can be running before a conventional elevator hoistway is installed, allowing facility owners and contractors to use a MMRL as a temporary lift to meet regulations for job sites taller than three stories.”
