ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas introduces a new elevator, the endura MRL, which combines the no-nonsense functionality of hydraulics and a truly machine room-less design -- perfect for low-rise buildings.
"For a decade, low-rise building owners have been installing over engineered traction elevators to move tenants just a few floors," says Rich Hussey, president and CEO. "With the launch of the endura MRL, now there is an elevator that saves building space, takes less effort and cost to install and saves thousands of dollars on elevator operations over the product's life. Compared with hydraulic solutions, the endura MRL uses 95 percent petroleum-free hydraulic fluid, has no machine room to construct and requires less installation coordination."
The endura MRL's components are tucked neatly into the space already occupied by the elevator. So there is no need to design, construct or maintain a machine room or restrict the use of space that provides access to a controller closet. It truly offers a simplified solution no matter your equipment.
ThyssenKrupp Elevator has conducted Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and Costing (LCC) on our low-rise elevators to help customers understand the economic and environmental impact before choosing an elevator for their low-rise building. When compared with traction MRL, the endura MRL elevator saves up to $100,000 on initial, building and operating costs over the product's 25-year life. These costs are based on the comparison of three-stop, 2,500-pound capacity hydraulic and traction elevators with the same interiors and settings.
