Hydraulic Lifts

Following constant investment in research and development, GMV has achieved the best possible technology standard for elevator solutions up to 6 stops: the Green Lift Fluitronic ® GMV elevator.

With a load capacity ranging from 320 kg to 1,000 kg, it is certainly a favorite solution, at least for an installation up to 6 stops, compared to the traditional electric MRL.

The GMV Fluitronic technology successfully fixed all flaws of old hydraulic elevators.

The Green Lift Fluitronic ® GMV nowadays is far more ecological thanks to the use of biodegradable ecological Fluid instead of mineral oil.

Moreover, installed power could be reduced by up to 20 % and energy consumption by up to 30 %, compared to old systems.

The innovations to obtain these improvements have been: the new “dry motors”, more efficient because not subject to viscous friction, the Electronic NGV valve or the ETC system which controls the mechanical valve.

The Green Lift Fluitronic ® has a reduced seismic vulnerability compared to electric systems. In case of earthquakes, mechanical systems are vulnerable because the counterweight and the machinery on the car top risk to fall down, whereas the Green Lift Fluitronic ® system is self-supporting, i.e. the masses are charged on the ground, and there is no counterweight; moreover, when the car out of use, it descends to the lowest floor. This is the reason why the risk of structural damages on the building due to the elevator itself is minimal.

Furthermore, the construction of the Green Lift Fluitronic ® is of great simplicity, resulting in the longevity of the product and its maintenance: in fact, Green Lift Fluitronic ® maintenance works take place on the bottom of the shaft and no longer on the top. The heart of the system is always at hand. Simplicity, functionality and thus reduced operational costs.

The high quality of the Green Lift Fluitronic ® system allows GMV to offer an extended warranty of 10 years for this product.

Additionally, GMV delivers the product within two weeks, Fast Track, for standard systems.

The GMV Green Lift Fluitronic ® elevators meet all requirements of the market and comply with the specific standards:

  • The elevator complies with the antiseismic standard EN 81.77

Additional systems of the line

  • The system complies with the standard EN 81.21 featuring a reduced headroom and/or pit, and with a pit of 450 mm and a speed of 0,30 m/s;
  • System with a limited load;
  • System with rated load of 450 kg for an electricity meter of 6 kW;

On the United States elevator market, doubtlessly the most evolved worldwide, the technological solution Green Lift Fluitronic ® still keeps 80 % of the market share.
