Shaft Configuration
No Shaft
Inclinator’s machine room elevators can be installed in an “open” environment – running up the center of open winding stairs, next to stairways and where no stairs exist. Elevette 500 car style is used for no shaft elevators.
In Shaft
Most Inclinator elevators operate within an enclosed shaft. Occasionally, shafts are designed into projects and saved for future elevator installation. Prior to use as an elevator shaft, it can be used as closets stacked on top of each other. Elevette 400, 300, 200 and 100 car styles are used for in-shaft elevators.

Car Operating Stations for Machine Room Elevators
Each elevator includes a Car Control Station. The faceplate will vary depending on finish selected and the number of elevator landings. A Remote Station is placed on each landing by the elevator door.
Machine Room Elevators
Historically, home elevators included a machine room that housed the drive system. This was a closet-sized room that was usually located at the lowest point of the elevator. Inclinator offers a drive system that is housed entirely in the hoistway (elevator shaft). This eliminates the need for a machine room, thereby taking up less square footage and reducing construction and installation costs.
