Inclined Elevator

The Inclined Lift use the technology of vertical elevators.

Inclined Lift

relieves all the challenges

The funiculars use the technology of vertical elevators. Their optimal range of application is short journeys, on a sloping track and on a straight line. With their complete automation, they work without an operator.

Whether outdoor or urban, public or private, our inclined elevators are tailored to suit your needs. In the most severe climate environment or ultra-intensive use, they will be able to offer you the best performances, whatever your architectural constraints.

From the feasibility study to construction of your inclined elevators, from their retrofit to their maintenance, POMA is with you at every stage of the project.

THE ADVANTAGES 

OF THE POMA INCLINED LIFT

ERGONOMICS AND DESIGN

To make our inclined elevators a sustainable and modern mode of transport, we seek to make them the most comfortable from the design stage. Through our work on interior comfort, we offer a unique sense of space thanks to our cabins made entirely out of glass.

By also working on the outside visual aspect, our elevators blend into the environment in the most remarkable sites.

AVAILABILITY AND DURABILITY

With a fully automatic operation 24/7, our elevators guarantee high performance and an excellent level of service for the user and operator. Their secret? High reliability due to proven and energy-efficient solutions. Thus, the operating cost of our inclined elevators is optimised, their durability increased and satisfaction is high.

Funicular

The POMA funicular railway is an ideal transport solution for urban tourism and industrial environments regardless of the climate environment. It is reversible, is pulled by a rope, and can be integrated into a complex urban landscape, with curves and long distances.

Automated People Mover – APM

An APM, Automated People Mover, is a fully automatic system without drivers and usually moves along on a flat plane, which differentiates it from funicular railways. Unlike with automotive vehicles, the machinery and motor equipment are located remotely thanks to the rope. Thus, the APM is often described as “light metro” technology, in the sense that the infrastructure (viaduct, track structure, etc.) and installation are lighter and faster.
