Spartan, known for providing bar cutting/bending machines, passenger and material hoists, rope suspended platforms, tower cranes, rack and pinion hoists, etc for infrastructure projects like roads, flyovers, bridges, houses, dams, and tunnels, has introduced advanced Fire Evacuation Lifts that can be customised as per the design of the existing or new building. Made of fire-proof panels, the lifts can withstand fires up to two hours, thus aiding in emergency evacuation of people trapped during a fire.
Dr. Vikram Mehta, Managing Director
, informs, “Our Fire Evacuation Lifts adhere to the norms mandated by the PWD Energy Department. They have advanced technologies like IoT-based sensors. The cabin is made of non-combustible materials and the panels are insulated with ceramic wool of two-hour fire rating. They also have a 30-minute battery backup. There is a trap door on the roof for emergency exits, unlike the ordinary fire lifts. Our lifts are suitable for both residential and commercial buildings of 3 to 60 storeys. Spartan is the first company to manufacture 2 Hour Fire rated door with vision panel certified by CBRI for its fire evacuation lifts.”
He informs that Spartan has launched a 3-ton hoist for India’s tallest tower of 300 meters (more than 100 floors), developed a very high-speed vacuum pinion hoist of 3-ton capacity, and has started making parking lifts and offering robotic parking solutions for high-rise buildings. The company has also invested in 16 and 40-ton tower cranes which it is providing to precast companies on a rental basis.
Spartan has opened offices in Dubai, Saudi Arabia, and in Africa where it is exporting its hoists and is marketing its vending machines. “About 20% of our turnover is from exports. In India, we have a team of 25 design engineers who are using the latest SolidWorks software, 3D modeling, FEA analysis. All Spartan lifts have regenerative power systems. While our fire evacuation lifts are selling at Rs. 50 lakhs per unit, Israel is selling them at Rs. 4 cr/unit.” “Our industry is going at a rate of more than 15%, and Spartan has been growing at a rate of 55%. We will be closing around Rs 175 cr this year and in the next five years we aim to go up to Rs 700 cr,” says Dr. Mehta.
