Direct Gear Drive System

Traditional gear-driven elevators utilize a 90°-Style gear box configuration. This gear box configuration, by default, uses very large internal gear assemblies, increasing operating sound levels within the home.

A+ ELEVATORS & LIFTS uses a T-Style gear box, utilizing smaller internal gears, thus reducing the amount of friction within the gear box. This reduction in friction brings very high benefits to the homeowner by reducing operation sound levels by more than 50%, in addition to adding to the long-term reliability of the gear box and motor systems.

As the highest-quality gear-drive elevator available, this will satisfy all of your expectations. It gives you increased mobility, added convenience, and a smooth ride. The direct-gear drive is designed to expand your options, with the machine installation either adjacent to the elevator hoistway or overhead. Plus, the patented, battery-operated emergency operation system comes as a standard feature. All in all, the Direct-Gear Drive System is the perfect solution. We stand behind our workmanship with a two-year warranty.
