We like to brag about the strength and durability of our elevators. McDonough Elevators are built to perform in extreme, intense working conditions. What makes them strong enough to stand up to the harshest of environments? The thickness of our car walls and the bracing of our frames support all reaction loads so the frame and car do not twist or deform over time. Our steel support members are rolled to ensure rigidity. All components are manufactured in Europe or the United State to the toughest of standards. An elevator is a heavy duty piece of equipment and we believe it should be built to last longer than a lawn mower.
