Installing an elevator is crucial to managing any multi-level business. In addition to making big deliveries easier, most zoning regulations require an adequate elevator installation to allow accessibility for those with disabilities. When you are tasked with choosing an elevator, it may be hard to know where to start. After all, a long as it gets the job done, it’s perfect, right? Well, a faulty elevator can cost your business thousands, so this choice may be more important that you think. In this video, we explore the many differences between gearless and hydraulic elevators.
One of the key differences between these two elevators is their environmental impact. The gearless elevator is more eco-friendly due to not utilizing any fossil fuels.
The counterweight mechanism it uses also makes it incredibly energy-efficient. The hydraulic elevator, on the other hand, is a much more economical solution due to its simple design. The hydraulic system has been tried and true for businesses for decades, and has ultimately proven to be robust and easy to perform maintenance on. While both elevators work perfectly, your budget will most likely define your final choice.
