Precision Landing® Personnel Elevator FAQs
Is a Manlift the same thing as a Special Purpose Personnel Elevator?
No. A Belt (or vertical personnel) Manlift is an endless belt that travels about 75 feet per minute and provides continuous transportation in both directions, so a person can get on or off any floor without interrupting service for other employees. An employee stands on step and can ride the manlift up or down. A Special Purpose Personnel Elevator is a vertical transportation machine that is completely enclosed. A Humphrey Manlift personnel elevator is powered by an electric motor. As the person steps into the “cage”, a door must be closed to ride the elevator up and down to another level.
Is your commercial personnel elevator a 1 or 2 person elevator or a 3 or 4 person elevator?
The personnel elevator capacity is not based on the number of people but rather weight capacity: 350, 650 or 1000 lbs. Our special purpose elevator (or lift) can support people or cargo as long as the capacity guidelines are followed.
Do you sell commercial elevator alternatives?
Yes, our Precision Landing™ Personnel Elevator is a high quality elevator alternative. Our special purpose personnel elevator can be added to a building with limited space in a relatively short amount of time and is meant for commercial or industrial use only.
