Canton - Hydraulic Paragon - Cantilever

The design utilizes wire ropes in conjunction with a single hydraulic jack to lift the elevator at a 1:2 ratio. For each foot the jack rises, the elevator rises two feet. The platform is supported by a cantilevered car frame with the jack, rails, and roping located on one side of the hoistway.


  • Jack hole is not required. Eliminating the cost of drilling and the risk of ground contamination from oil leak.

  • Accommodates front, rear and side opening configurations.

  • Allows for glass walls on sides where equipment is not located.

  • Rail bracket attachment only required on one wall of the hoistway.

  • Available with higher travels up to approximately 90’-0”.

  • Minimal pit and overhead requirements.


  • May require a larger hoistway width to accommodate rail and jack equipment being mounted on only one side of the car or at the rear.

  • Additional rail force considerations are necessary to accommodate rail brackets being mounted only on one wall.

  • Governor access door is required in the overhead unless a special governor is provided.

  • Limited to 3000-lb. capacity rating.

  • Installation time is typically higher when compared to an in-ground application.

This morning I called, desperate, for repair to our stair lift. Your outstanding technician, Collin, arrived within an hour - was kind, courteous, professional.....and fixed the problem quickly. This is the second time we have used you for service - the other technician was Ryan, and he was just as efficient and kind as Collin was. I was so very impressed and wanted to take the time to thank you. Your receptionist, Lacey, also presented herself as kind and very helpful. Customer service is so important and it is obvious you have a great team who understands that concept very well! Good job!
