Posted By ascension_user

There are several reasons why people get elevators installed in their home. And once they decide they need an elevator, the next big decision they have to take is which elevator to buy. There are various types of elevators available in the market today: cable elevators, pneumatic elevators, hydraulic elevators, and glass elevators. Each of these elevators are popular, but for different reasons. Here we will be discussing why a cable-driven elevator might be the best choice for your home. But before that, let have a quick look at what cable-driven elevators basically are.A cable-driven lift is powered by electricity. The elevator moves up and down the glide rails, which keep it the elevator car from swaying and also enable an emergency brake system which locks the car in place in case of an emergency. The car is moved with the help of a number of steel cables that are prompted to...

Advances in construction continue to take skyscrapers to amazing new heights, but there’s a technology that has played a key role in making this possible i.e. the elevator system. Before elevators were introduced to the world, the height of buildings was restricted to 8-9 floors. It is due to elevators that constructing structures with over 100 floors has become possible.Here, we have listed down the fastest elevators that are installed in some of the world’s tallest structures:Jin Mao Tower in ShanghaiThis elevator, located in the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, is capable of moving at a speed of 32km/hour, or 20 miles/hour. The height of the tower is 421m and this lift takes 46 seconds approx. to travel from its ground to the top. This lift is manufactured by Mitsubishi and there are total 130 such lifts operating in the tower, including 2 express elevators in the...

What Factors Determine the Number of Elevators a Building Needs?

Posted By ascension_user

Elevators have become an important part of our lives today as they provide us with a comfortable, safe and effective way of transportation between different floors and heights. There are numerous types of elevators, which vary depending on the design, speed and lighting along with many other factors. However, they all serve the same purpose. An elevator is basically a system of transportation made of different mechanical, electrical and electronic parts that allows people to move between different floors of a building.The number of elevators required primarily depend on the height of the building or the number of floors, population to be served, passenger waiting time, and design of the building. Therefore, all these factors are taken into consideration when estimating the number of lifts to be installed in a building.Here is a detailed explanation of each of these factors and...

Regenerative Drives – The Greatest Innovation in Elevator Technology

Regenerative Drives – The Greatest Innovation in Elevator Technology

Posted By ascension_user

What are regenerative drives?Regenerative drives are undoubtedly one of the greatest innovations in this new generation of elevator technology. The elevators equipped with this technology are highly energy-efficient and reduce the energy consumption up to 70 percent. Mostly, when elevators move upward with a light load and then come downward with a heavy load, the system uses a lot more power than it usually does. In traditional elevators this power is lost as heat, thus substantial amount of energy is wasted over the life the elevators. However, in elevators equipped with regenerative drives, the case is different. These drives capture the generated heat while the elevator is in use and converts it into reusable energy. This energy is transferred back into the system. In this way, a lot of energy is saved and not wasted as heat. How do regenerative drives work?When power...

Energy demand is expected to increase 20 to 35 percent over the next 15 years and almost two-third of this amount will be consumed by cities. Building are the most significant consumer of urban energy consumption and therefore the most important item to focus on in order to reduce energy usage. Considering these facts, buildings have become an obvious target for cities which are aiming to lower their carbon footprint. For this purpose, various creative new technologies are being introduced that are contributing to increasing energy efficiency of buildings. One of these new technologies that have successfully reduced energy usage of buildings and contributed to the effort of cities in reducing their overall energy consumption green elevator. The introduction of eco-friendly elevators has played a major role in growth of green-building markets. These elevators operate using much less...

People usually oversee the benefits that elevators have offered to our society. Just like vehicles, elevators have enabled us to travel from one place to another, and allowed buildings to grow vertically instead of growing horizontally. Keeping in consideration all architectural trends to urban and economic development, elevators have shaped various areas of our daily lives. However, since safety elevators were development by Otis company in mid-80s, no major development took place in elevator design and operation until recently.Even today, most of the modern elevators continue to use the same designs and operating systems as were used in the elevators of 1800s. The basic design of these elevators consist of a motorized cable system which pull the cab up and down inside a shaft. The motor operates with the help of a counterweight that weighs almost half of a fully loaded elevator...

Many technological developments have taken place over the last 150 years, but none of it has had a greater impact than the introduction of passenger elevators. Prior to this invention, buildings were rarely up to 7 floors tall. But since the elevators have come into existence, buildings haven’t stopped growing taller and taller. In the year 2009, Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building was constructed with 163 floors. From the time when the first elevator was invented coming all the way up till today, we see that many major developments have taken place in the design as well as the operating systems of elevators. From being made of locally produced materials to becoming eco-friendly and green, elevators have come a long way. Research shows that building consume nearly 40 percent of world’s energy, and 2-10 percent of this energy is used by the elevators. The elevator...
