Wanna Buying The Best and Right Elevator For Your Home

Date:2015-12-16

Now people's lives become increasingly dependent on fuji elevator , families, companies, shopping malls, and ultimately, as long as someone's place on the elevator, so before we are ready to install the elevator we should first understand the elevator. You may be considering the investment of a home elevator, but have very little idea what one costs or what actually goes into it - much less which drive system, gate type, cab area, and door configuration are right for you.

Before calling in an elevator contractor, it’s a good idea to learn a little bit about the components of a home elevator and the many choices that are available. This knowledge can help save you money and ensure a home elevator installation that will serve your needs well for years to come.

If you have the impression that putting an elevator shaft in your home is as simple as cutting a hole in the floor, think again. A typical home elevator hoistway consists of two or more fairly large closets, stacked one per level, with the floor/ceiling layer between them removed. Some designs also require a machine room (see below) about the same size as one of the closets. Most home structures need little to no additional reinforcement to support an elevator, apart from two vertical columns running top to bottom on one side of the shaft interior. For most home elevator designs, a "pit" of 6 to 14 inches is also required below the lowest level, and additional headroom (extending into the attic) may be required above the top for the shaft.

How much floor space is needed for a home elevator? According to American building codes, no home elevator cab can be larger than 18 square feet on its interior. Generally, a shaft 5 feet square is sufficient to hold this largest permitted size of elevator cab. In very small homes where not even 25 square feet per floor can be spared, a smaller cab is sometimes used.
A machine room may or may not be needed for your home elevator depending on the drive type you select. Hydraulic systems do require a machine room, usually about 5 feet square (about the same size as the shaft itself), in the general vicinity of the elevator installation. Cable winding drum elevators require a similarly sized machine room, positioned adjacent to the topmost section of the hoistway.

Chain drive and inline gear drive elevators do not require a separate machine room, making use of attic space instead. This is one of the chief benefits of chain drive: It takes up less usable space in your home.

An elevator system has both gates and doors. The gates are the accordion-fold barriers which are built into the cab and prevent the occupants from falling out while the elevator is in motion. The hoistway doors are built into the side of the shaft, and are designed to keep people from falling into the shaft from the outside, or sticking anything in the way of the elevator.
