As a result, the installation can be achieved within a few days. Its self-supporting structure requires a minimum pit or can be supplied with a ramp, and can be configured with various door options.

With a relatively small footprint and minimal building work required, the Niche Hydra provides a cost-effective alternative to a conventional passenger lift.
