Fast, safe and easy to operate evacuation chairs or evacuation carriers are vital during times of emergency. Emergency evacuation chairs help people in wheelchairs or people who have difficulty with stairs quickly reach safety during building evacuation situations. Evacuation carries supplied and installed by McKinley Elevator have a variety of safety features specifically suited to emergency situations, including assisted operation and on-stair stopping.
Does your emergency evacuation plan include an evacuation chair for someone with a mobility-related disability? In the event of a fire or earthquake, elevators should not be used for the emergency evacuation of a building. In this situation, people with limited mobility may be trapped or have to wait for a prolonged period of time in an area of refuge.

A system of cables and stacked weights that provide a counterweight to the cab and passenger load weight. It's purpose is to make lifting the load more efficient and less taxing on the lifting motor.
A system that uses a cylinder, a pump and non-compressible liquid (hydraulic oil). The fluid builds up inside the cylinder, pushing up a piston located inside and causing the elevator to raise to the corresponding floor. Releasing the compressed liquid through a valve allows the cab to lower.
A system whereby the lifting power is applied without cables and pulleys, but rather through a vacuum pump. By applying the principles of a vacuum to generate changes in atmospheric pressure within the cylinder hoist way, the cab moves smoothly and safely between floors.
A lifting system that utilizes aircraft cable, a winding drum and a motor mounted at the top of or behind the rails depending on your height limitations. The motor winds the cable onto the drum to lift and descend the elevator cab. The variable speed motor provides you with a soft start and stop.
