Motala 2000 comes with our very reliable chain drive. Unlike screw drive, which is normally used in platform lifts, this technology does not cause wear. The lift requires little or almost no maintenance in terms of replacing or repairing our controlled chain drive and the technology creates no noise. We are so convinced of the reliability of the chain operation that we provide a lifetime guarantee on the guides, chain and guide rails and we have been using this technology problem-free since 1995.
Platform lifts such as the Motala 2000 are often used to provide accessibility in public buildings. This type of elevator does not have a basket but has a lifting platform, which makes platform elevators significantly cheaper to purchase and install than other types of elevators.
Reconstruction of existing buildings for a new purpose, for example when an industrial premises is converted into an office landscape or restaurant, are other examples of applications where accessibility needs to be adapted.
Motala 2000 meets current requirements in real estate without taking up more space than absolutely necessary. The shaft can be fitted with glazing on all sides, which gives an attractive appearance. The lift is also environmentally friendly – the energy consumption is only a third of most comparable products and no oil changes are required during servicing.
The chain has a coating that reduces friction. This means that no oil is needed, which reduces the need for service. No oil leaks occur and there is no waste oil to deal with. The need for cleaning becomes less.
The electric drive system has a frequency converter that minimizes power consumption and provides smooth stopping and starting. This reduces the strain on the electrical system and results in low energy consumption. Only one phase with a 10A fuse is needed for our chain drive, compared to 16A which is otherwise normal in platform lift installations when using e.g. screw and nut technology to lift the platform.
Quick and easy installation
The installation is quick and uncomplicated and takes only a couple of days. The lift is designed for easy handling, manufactured with smart technology and high quality. Motala 2000 is certified according to EN81-41.
We offer a lifetime warranty on the Motala 2000 and Motala 2000 Cabin guides, chain and guide bars, to demonstrate our great confidence in this construction. To this day, we have never replaced a chain. We provide a 5-year warranty on the rest of the drive system, and the rest of the lift is covered by the usual 2-year warranty (warranty outside Sweden is 1 year).
