Basic Knowledge of Passenger Elevators

Date:2016-03-17

You know, previously, buildings are usually with only a few floors. However, nowadays, with the application of the passenger elevators, more and more buildings are extended to skyscrapers. And in recent decades, development of the elevator has reached new heights. Today, passenger elevator are an important integral part of most multi-level buildings, designed to recognize our destination and take us there safely in seconds.

In 1853, Elisha G. Otis developed a new component called safety brake for passenger elevator, which is a milestone for the development of elevator. If a hoisting cable broke, this device was immediately engaged to hold the elevator in place. Recently, elevators are fitted with intuitive safety features like overload sensors that prevent an elevator from responding unless excess load is removed or some passengers disembark.

When stepping into a passenger elevator, we are naturally focus on our destination, and regardless of the air we breathe. Often w take the air conditioning in an elevator for granted. Indeed, air conditioning plays an important role in an elevator, without it, we would quickly notice how unbearably hot the elevator can be. Besides, the air conditioning provides cool in summer months and warmth in winter, ensuring air is being circulated and passengers are kept comfortable.

Nowadays, humans tend to be obsessed with time. We are considered tardy if we arrive late. And for most of us, its natural to want any time in a confined space like an elevator to be limited. Therefore, many engineers are trying their best to focus on increase the speed of passenger elevators. And it is possible these days for elevators to be so fast they race through an elevator shaft at a rate of 3,313 feet per minute.

Generally, making the passengers feel comfortable is the priority of many elevator designers. Introducing melodic music to passenger elevators in 1889 encouraged first time passengers to trust elevators would keep them safe, distracting their attention and providing comfort. And in today's high speed elevators, buffers in the lift shaft, improved car structure and low friction hoisting ensure a smooth ride.

Obviously, Passenger Elevator has become so important that we even couldn’t image if we can live without them in high buildings. And it has inspired skyscrapers and continue to motivate designers towards more outstanding design and luxurious experience for human intent on rising up to meet the challenges of the day.
