Alimak marine elevators are designed for optimal performance and safety in tough maritime conditions. Practical access to equipment is vital on marine vessels where continuous inspections and maintenance operations are required thanks to the corrosive conditions presented by humidity and saltwater.  

Manufactured with a durable reinforced design, Alimak marine elevators are built to withstand strong winds, and the roll and pitch of the ocean to transport people and materials to elevated points on a ship efficiently.
