Rack & Pinion Elevators

Rack and pinion elevators, also known as permanent manlifts or personnel elevators, offer faster installation times, lower service costs, and simpler maintenance procedures than other elevators…

SmartRack™ – American Made Rack & Pinion Elevator Control System

McDonough Elevator, in conjunction with Smartrise Engineering, has developed an elevator control system designed specifically for rack and pinion elevators. The new SmartRack™ controller can be used in any rack and pinion elevator make / model thereby eliminating the need for OEM technical support.

Service and Maintenance

As a licensed elevator contractor, McDonough offers maintenance and repair services on all brands of rack and pinion elevators.

Modernization & Refurbishments

A refurbished rack and pinion elevator is a cost-effective alternative to buying new equipment. McDonough can refurbish any rack and pinion elevator, whether operated as a permanently installed elevator or temporary construction elevator.


We carry an extensive inventory of replacement parts for all major brands of rack and pinion elevators. These parts are available in our US-based warehouses.


Before making any decision on your industrial elevator it’s important to get an expert’s opinion. Whether or not you currently work with McDonough, our experts in rack and pinion consultants will visit your site and provide a detailed report on your elevator’s condition along with an action plan.
