Elevators for Commercial Applications by hkksew3563rd


Elevator is a device used for transporting persons, luggage and goods between
different floors of multi-storied buildings. Of the various types of elevators available,
commercial elevators are the powerful ones and find a wide range of applications in
healthcare centers, shopping malls, multiplexes and small scale industries.

Commercial elevators are of hydraulic or electrical types and are available in varying
lifting capacities ranging from 1,000 lb to 6,000 lb. Hydraulic elevators that travel 8
floors or less can reach speeds upto 200 ft/min. In the case of electric elevator it is 500
ft/min. Elevators that travel above ten floors have speeds ranging from 500 ft/min to
2000ft/min. Hydraulic elevators are commonly used in buildings having 2-8 floors.

Safety Measures in Commercial Elevators

Most commercial elevators are incorporated with excellent safety and security
features. Alarm button is provided as a safety measure for signalling outsiders
whenever the elevator is in trouble or when the lift gets trapped. An alarm is also
triggered when elevators are stopped for a long time.

Switches are provided to control the ventilation fan and light in the elevator. Some
elevators are provided with telephone for the passenger to use in case of emergency.
Commercial elevators can also be controlled from outside using the up and down
button in each floor and all controls are so user friendly that passengers can use them
even in the absence of an elevator operator.

For commercial lifts designed to carry freights, stop switch is provided to hold the
elevator doors open, for loading and unloading. Open/close buttons are used to
instruct the elevator for opening and closing the doors.
