The Elevator

From high-rises to superstructures, elevator systems are rising to the demand for a great ride experience that includes Speed, Safety, Hygiene, and Aesthetic Interiors – all of which are being driven by the latest technologies.

Elevator manufacturers KONE, TKE (INDIA) and TOSHIBA, discuss some major developments induced by technological interventions in the elevator space to maximize travel distance along with high-speed, sans the vibration, the latest rope-free elevators for space and energy saving, digitally driven touch-free operations, great interiors, and even customization to give users an engaging experience within the elevator. Use of Destination Management System is becoming popular as it minimizes the number of stops per trip, thereby reducing crowding in the cabin, and decreasing travel time.

Real estate developers, lift companies, and architects are customizing the building’s elevators’ aesthetics to enhance the project’s overall appeal and sense of luxury. Thematic interior décor, mirrors, textures, colours, and finishes vie for attention, while upgradations and customisations can include cameras installed inside the cabins, energy saving VF drives, folded seats in the cabins, and auto-closing doors.

As regards technology, manufacturers are integrating energy-saving components, locally manufactured components, solutions like variable frequency drives, standby modes, gearless elevators, etc. Such sustainable solutions are highly desired by the real estate developers keen on obtaining a green certificate for their project.

Underscoring the need for timely maintenance, manufacturers are offering comprehensive maintenance packages, given the surety of genuine spares and professional services extended by them.

Lift manufacturers and building developers also endorse the need for regulations and adherence to building codes and guidelines for the installation and maintenance of lifts as they would foster product safety. They believe that such a legislation would control any deviation from the prescribed guidelines for a safety-critical equipment like the elevator.
