Why Fuji Elevator Is My Best Choice


One thing many property managers or owners don’t realize is that different types and classes of elevator are recommended for buildings depending on the size and types of loads they will be carrying. For example, smaller buildings with five or fewer stories usually require a hydraulic elevator, while taller buildings require a cabled elevator. In the elevator industry, these are called “traction elevators.”

Passenger Elevators

Passenger elevators are designed and rated for carrying passengers. Currently, the largest passenger elevators have 10,000 lb capacity, although most haul between 2500 and 5000 lbs. Some are specially designed to accommodate stretchers, such as for hospital applications. They can be hydraulic or traction. They can also be machine room-less, which are essentially a specialized type of traction elevator.

Freight Elevators

Freight elevators are heavy duty and designed to haul material. Freight elevators have vertically opening freight doors. Many older freight elevators have wooden gates that are opened manually. These types of elevators can be engineered to lift 20,000 pounds or more in special applications. This kind of elevator generally can be customized according to customer’s special requirements.

Service Elevators

Service elevators are often mistakenly called freight elevators. Service elevators are actually regular passenger elevators that have been outfitted with utility cabs and floors, and are usually in an “employees only” of a commercial building. The most common example would be the service elevator used by housekeeping in hotels. You can always tell service elevators and freight elevators because a freight elevator will have vertically opening “bi-parting” doors while service elevators will have normal side sliding doors. There are rare cases where service elevators can be classified and rated for freight loading, but this is the exception not the rule.

MRL Elevators

One of the latest innovations in the elevator arena are machine room-less elevators, or MRL elevators. Most MRL elevators are actually traction passenger elevators. They utilize a small machine and motor at the top of the elevator shaft to move the unit with cables. By eliminating the machine room required by most elevators, you can achieve greater efficiency in space planning. Due to their compact nature, MRL elevators must be used in applications with 20 stories or less and 5000 lbs or less. MRL elevators can also be classified as passenger or freight elevators, but they are almost always passenger.


In residential homes, hotels, hospitals and even restaurants, dumbwaiters can be very practical. They can be installed in a small area and make moving meals, packages or other items between floors fast and easy. As a matter of fact, this is a kind of mini elevator that mainly used to lifting light goods.
