In the early stages of designing a building need to carry out the analysis and modeling of traffic flow on the basis of these data to make selection of the type, quantity, capacity, speed, service system, as well as the location of the elevators. Existing types of lifts satisfy even the most intricate ideas of the designer. Modern technologies allow to install a lift in a very confined space.
The quality of the service buildings affected by the number of elevators installed in it, which depends on the type of building (office, hotel or residential), the number of users in the building area of the building, the location of restaurants, etc. For example: in the offices of some manufacturers recommend lifts from 150 to 300 users on a lift. In hotels – per 1 lift 100-200 rooms. Just in hotels, it is desirable to plan and service elevators, the amount of which shall be two-thirds of the total number of lifts. In residential buildings, passenger elevator can be installed if more than 6 store’s floors.
Capacity / lift capacity also affects their number. If the lift capacity of 400 pounds, then this cabin will contain a 5 passengers. But in the “tonner” fit easily over 12 people. But at “tonner” cabin size is much larger is not always acceptable in some circumstances.
The speed of the lift effect at the time of delivery of passengers to the desired floor. Desirably, the movement from the lower to the upper floor should not exceed 30 seconds. If the number of floors of the building is low, and the passenger is small, must be ordered with a standard speed elevators – 1 meter per second. With more than 9 storeys or increase in passenger traffic is advisable to book an elevator with a speed of 1.5 m / s. For a 30-storey houses and we can safely purchase a lift up to 7 m / s.
Timeout elevator after pressing the call button is heavily dependent on system maintenance floors. Some older elevators can accept and serve only one call, which was received first. The next challenge will be accepted only after the previous occupant will be delivered to the desired floor. This is useful when traveling VIP passenger protection. Also, if the passenger carries any weight. Most modern elevators installed in residential buildings are equipped with collecting system while moving down. The calculation is that the main flow of passengers with different floors directed downwards and not upwards. Therefore, if you go to the first floor, then reach your desired without additional stops.
