Traction Lifts


At IKONIC Lifts we believe in sophisticated lift thinking and our Traction Drive Passenger Lift Range is testament to this belief.

Our Lift Cert accreditations and sophisticated products ensure an exceptionally shallow pit measuring as little as 30 cm is all that is required for us to deliver you the elegant, compliant solution you’re looking for.

Our traction lift range use a unique patented traction drive system, developed with our partner Lift manufacturer HIRO Lifts, which enables the drive to sit either on the car itself (fixed on the top or on the side) or in the counterweight of the lift.

This elegant engineering opens up endless design possibilities for architects as it enables the shaft and car to be integrated in the overarching architectural concept.
