Rack & Pinion Elevators

Rack and Pinion Elevator

What is a Rack and Pinion Elevator?

Designed to move personnel and cargo in a variety of industrial settings, GEDA USA’s rack and pinion elevator, also called rack and pinion lift, set the global standard for safe, efficient vertical access. Equipped with a drive assembly on the car platform, elevator power is provided by a motor driving a pinion gear. Each pinion gear operates on a stationary rack connected to a supported tower, and GEDA rack and pinion elevator systems can be manufactured with various cab sizes, capacities and control options. Elevators are also manufactured with an independent over-speed safety device, consisting of a governor-operated brake and separate pinion (operating on the same rack).

Rack and Pinion Elevator Standards

Proven to increase productivity and safety for facility owners and crew managers, GEDA USA rack and pinion systems provide a competitive advantage over traditional traction-style industrial elevators. Each unit can be installed on building and structure exteriors, allowing for expanded production space. In addition, there is no machine room required, no hoistway required, and no overhead loads necessary. Steel support sizes are reduced, and installation can be completed quickly and more cost effectively than conventional elevators. In addition, each state-of-the-art elevator also allows for frequent inspections and provides a safe means of evacuation during emergency situations.
