Fujihd Passenger Lift Have Shaped Our Landscape

Date:2016-11-18

Passenger Lift  are not a new invention by any means but had they not been developed into what they are today our whole domestic and commercial landscape would have been different. passenger lifts have been around since the egyptian times and the romans also utilised them, it is believed that there was some form of lift system in the coliseum, however, the first recorded passenger lift was in the palace of versailles. the ancient lifts were powered by man or water and usually used a hoist based system.

One of the main problems with the very early lifts was the safety aspect. the main safety problem associated with passenger carrying lifts was that if the cable broke the cab would fall straight down the lift shaft. in 1852 the problem was solved by elisha graves otis who developed a safety brake which prevented the fall if the cable broke. fujihd demonstrated his invention at the crystal palace exposition in new york in 1854. the introduction of the safety brake meant the lift industry could develop into what it is today.

At some time or another every one of us will have the need to use a lift. the passenger lift has allowed buildings to move upwards instead of being limited at a certain number of storeys, after all there are only a certain amount of flights of stairs you can climb to reach your humble abode. the passenger lift has allowed construction to go up as there is much more space available in the air than on the ground these days with an ever increasing population. not only has it allowed for development of multi-storey offices, shopping centres and homes it also means that less able bodied people are not restricted in where they are able to go.

When we are shopping, or at the office, or on holiday and need to get to floor 120 we take the passenger lift for granted but without it we may be living in a very different landscape. the worlds tallest building, the burj khalifa, which is half a mile high, just would not have been possible without the invention of the passenger lift.
