Machine Room Elevator



The Machine-Room (MR) traction elevator has a machine room above the hoistway, so that the machinery and the equipments are in a separate space from the bucket, making its maintenance much easier.

If we divided the spaces necessary for the installation of an elevator into parts, we could group them into three main parts:

Machine Room

It is one of the most important areas, as it contains the control panel, the traction machine and the speed regulator.


The area from the top of the upper finished floor to the nearest overhead obstruction within the shaf


The depression below the surface of the lowest landing that allows the elevator floor to be level with the floor of the lowest landing
