Built to perform

The Gen2 Life lift builds on a proven foundation to ensure reliable performance, safety and comfort for passengers.

  • 1 Coated steel belts

    Our patented polyurethane coated steel belts last twice as long as conventional steel ropes, without any lubrication.

  • 2 Gearless machine

    The permanent magnet gearless machine is 80 percent smaller than conventional machines.

  • 3 Architectural flexibility

    The optional low-pit or low-overhead design reduces pit space by up to 65 percent, while maintaining a high level of safety for passengers and service technicians.

  • 4 Improved passenger comfort

    Smooth polyurethane coated steel belts and our low noise gearless machine mounted on rubber isolation pads give you a quiet, comfortable ride.
