ThyssenKrupp Elevator, the largest manufacturer of vertical transportation in the Americas, announces that BUILDINGS magazine has selected its endura MRL low-rise elevator as a 2014 Money-Saving Product.
The endura MRL, combines the no-nonsense functionality of hydraulics and a truly machine room-less design - perfect for low-rise buildings.
"The design of the endura MRL can save up to $100,000 on building and operating costs over the elevator's 25-year life compared with low-rise traction MRL products," says Rich Hussey, president and chief executive officer, ThyssenKrupp Elevators Americas. "In addition to the maintenance cost savings for building owners, the endura MRL also saves building space and takes less effort and cost to install which helps architects and general contractors."
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 to access to a controller closet. It truly offers a simplified solution no matter your equipment.
ThyssenKrupp Elevator 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 project. Compared with hydraulic solutions, the endura MRL uses 95 percent petroleum-free hydraulic fluid, does not require a machine room and requires less installation coordination. 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.
