The reason is that OEMs do not make elevator parts themselves; they have components made by others in low-cost countries (brakes, guide shoes, ropes, etc.) or they buy them at the large specialised EU manufacturing facilities (doors, traction machines, controllers).
Since the beginning of our business, we have been searching, sourcing and registering the true makers of these OEM components. We know the EU component specialists on a personal basis, and we have direct buying access to the OEM factories. Result: much lower prices for the same product at a shorter delivery time.
Rolling and pitching devices
Marine elevators under certain Classes (ABS for instance) require a rolling and pitching device. This is to ensure that the elevator is only operational in a safe condition. Upon turbulence at sea, this device will be engaged and will stop the elevator, preventing anyone from using it. It is designed to prevent mishaps such as functional/mechanical damages to the lift and, more importantly, injuries to passengers. MR Marine Spares provides in-house designed, easy to install industrial type rolling and pitching devices. Our devices comply with the strict Class rulings.
