The hydraulic lifts are installed in buildings where the requirements are not high, such as small and medium size residences, as well as factories or industrial plants with small shaft lengths.
The movement of the hydraulic lift is motored by the movement of a hydraulic piston onto which a cabin is directly or indirectly mounted. In the case of indirect mounting the piston acts indirectly on the cabin with the aid of steel ropes and a deviation pulley, onto which the cabin frame is mounted.
In the case of direct mounting the piston acts directly on the cabin through the cabin frame. Hydraulic lifts consist an economical solution and are used in cases where the maximum lifting height does not exceed 21-22 m.
