Pitless Elevators

Minimal to no excavation is required when adding a pitless elevator to an existing home. 

Avoid the headache and expense of cutting through floors and concrete for a pit.

Southeast Elevator’s pitless elevators are available with adjacent openings, front and rear openings as well as inline openings. You can choose a winding drum or hydraulic elevator with the option of two or more landings.

For hoistways that can’t add a pit

In some homes, there is no option of digging into the foundation to create a pit.
Pitless elevators are
ideal for adding an elevator to your existing home.

Easier INstallation

Since pitless elevators require minimal to no excavation, the installation process for existing homes can be easier than traditional home elevators. As a result, the construction and installation time is often reduced.

Less Construction

A traditional residential elevator pit is usually dug 8 to 14 inches deep, in addition to the thickness of the concrete slab at the bottom. Pitless elevators make it easier to retrofit an existing home.

Available in any of our custom Styles
