Installation of elevators in the Ostankino TV tower

Ostankino Tower. Installation of lifts


When the Ostankino Tower was built, it is rightly called the tallest building of the world. It was 1967. Now this position, she lost much more ambitious competitors. However, most of the buildings towering over the Russian capital, the Ostankino TV tower remains the tallest tower in Europe and the fifth tallest in the world.

However, we are more interested in not how much time will step "meter", reaching the top of the Ostankino tower (by the way, 540 times), and that in 70 years this building was completed installation of elevators, which, according to some sources, are first in Russia high-speed elevators.

Installation of elevators. Ground speed


It is difficult to say what are the characteristics of the first high-speed passenger elevator installed in the Ostankino television tower, but, according to some accounts, he developed a speed of six meters per second. Such parameters even today can boast not every passenger lift from those established in the Moscow skyscrapers.

Anyway, lift maintenance was conducted regularly in Ostankino until 2000, when it suffered a major fire. The fire occurred as a result of fault in the cables at a height of about 450 meters. As a result of the accident, all passenger elevators in the building are out of order.
For the reconstruction of the Ostankino television tower, again - according to rumors, it took about a billion rubles.

Installation of elevators. Attempt number 2


Restoration of the tower was under way. Simultaneously with the construction of new structures and ceilings workers makes installation of five elevators, four of which have been specially made in Germany.

These lifts still serve faithfully for employees and visitors Ostankino. Three high-speed elevators working for tourists, raising them to the viewing platform, which offers a beautiful view of the metropolis. The fourth is a high-speed elevator, suddenly, for the transportation of products in the restaurant complex. However, the passenger elevators rise only to the ninth floor. Above - 12 level - goes only one elevator, which has no relation to Germany.

Fifth elevator, large and robust, was made especially for the staff of the Ostankino television tower. Production and installation of elevators made Scherbinsk lift plant, which is a reliable partner mitol.

Installation of elevators. New level


New lifts in "Ostankino" different from the old as "Audi" from "Victory" - introduced himself as TV reporters new passenger lifts in Ostankino. New lifts differ primarily in that the energy supply system in them was the new generation. Previously, each supplied by a separate elevator battery, whereby after a few hours the lift had to be sent to a forced charging is now in each elevator shaft was laid special rail that supplies power. But we should not think that this is the usual guide rails, like bare wires. Power transmission is performed in a contactless manner, the type of transformer. Rails in the shaft - is, in essence, the inductive energy transfer element, and the elevator car is provided with a current collector.

The sad experience of two thousand years has not been forgotten. Elevator shaft, as well as cables and other components are made of non-combustible materials and fire alarm system immediately informs the emergency services to lift the slightest fault in the system. Elevator maintenance is done regularly, and all the equipment is contained in a state of readiness.

Installation of elevators. Facts and Figures


Metal and glass, as well as a minimum of plastic - on this principle have been triggered passenger lifts Ostankino television tower. Elevators for guests climb to the observation deck, which is located on the seventh level of the building, less than a minute. Lift is able to carry up to thirteen people at a time (about 2015 kg), while moving at a speed of about seven meters per second.

Indicators to show the height of the passenger lift. Lighting of the elevator car changes as recovery. On the lower floors of the green light, then it turns blue, and in the end - blue, the color of the sky.
Elevator that transports products in a restaurant, and can accelerate to seven meters per second, or even higher, but for reasons of safety (products rather than humans), it is limited to the speed of four meters per second. He is able to raise up to five hundred kilograms at a time.

The television tower Ostankino has seven lifts, but they work only five. The two remaining mines is simply used as a trough for communication and, judging by the fact that the staff and guests of Ostankino is enough five elevators, mine will never be used for its intended purpose.

Installation of elevators. Fish, vacuum, pedestrians

Installation of lifts for pedestrians and fish.


We have been told that there are many varieties, types and purposes of elevators. But mostly, they are divided into passenger and freight. There are exceptions, such as elevators for animals and ships. Today we tell about one more such exceptions, as well as to acquaint the reader with a vacuum lifts, which serves as an excellent alternative to a pedestrian crossing.

Installing elevators for fish

Lift fishNo, it is not about the mediocre mini-lift, which serves specialties in fish. Elevator, which was built in the State of Konektikut (on the river of the same name), in fact is intended solely for the transport of fish - more precisely, its rise. What For?

Connecticut River is famous for its shad. This fish, a species of river herring that spawn upstream rises, overcoming thus even small waterfalls. However, CT is not just a big waterfall - the river is blocked by a giant dam, the height of which is about a hundred meters. If a person does not think about the inhabitants of the river, they would be in Connecticut, certainly extinct. But the man thought, and the river was completed installation of elevators.

The lift installed at the dam, about three square meters in size. During spawning, which shad river dwellers the opportunity to continue their family.
Maintenance of elevators at the dam, as well as installation of elevators, was executed by «Holyoke Power».

Installation of elevators. Vacuum

Lift Vacuum

The innovative invention which mitol tell you now, is a marvel of modern engineering thought, who once again proved that all genius is simple. This innovation - namely, the vacuum lifter in recent years complements the standard kompletatsiyu low-rise houses in the state of Florida United States of America.

Mine combined with the mechanism of vacuum elevator resembles a medical syringe. Round polycarbonate elevator shaft completely sealed, its walls are very close contact with the wall round the cabin. Motor powerful pump actuates valve, which is evacuated from the upper part of the shaft, so the cabin starts to rise. The descent is similar: in the space above the elevator shaft begins gradually to the air, and it sinks.

Installation of elevators that rise through the creation of a vacuum in the mine, is quite simple and does not take long: the tightness of the structure provided by the fact that most of the parts assembled at the factory. Maintenance of elevators of this type is also simplified by eliminating the complex multi-level system of cables and winches.

But there are drawbacks. On average, this lift is able to raise just over 200 kilograms. Though, given the fact that holiday cottages where mainly made maintenance of elevators of this kind, they work perfectly, it can hardly be considered a serious drawback.

Installation of elevators. People mover

Lift Schmid Peoplemover1

"People mover Schmidt" - so you can literally translate the name of another unusual elevator constructed in Germany (Schmid Peoplemover). Now the technology that was used in its creation, innovation can not be called since it was assembled fourteen years ago, in 2001.

Lift Schmid PeoplemoverFour-lane federal highway with number 132 in Germany has always been too busy, both in terms of scurrying back and forth cars, and from the point of view of motorists, the road which is constantly trying to cross the residents of neighboring houses. This prompted the authorities to think about the device at this location of a pedestrian crossing, but instead pave the usual tunnel under the highway, it was decided skreativit and build on the track lift.

And, as it turned out, the idea was not so bad. As well as its implementation. "People mover Schmidt" is a semblance of a viaduct over the road: two towers connected by a large cross-section design. And tower and cross rails are supplied, which moves the elevator car, which can hold up to ten people. At first passenger elevator moves up and then freezes at the intersection of tower and cross, it switches to horizontal movement. Designers start two thousandth tried to glory: the elevator car is equipped with a large porthole through which can be seen streaking under the floor line of cars.

Design, installation and maintenance of lifts performed German company «Schmid Maschinenbau». Installers and engineers have worked on glory: cab rides smoothly, with a speed of one meter per second horizontal half meter per second - vertically. In order to overcome the road, the elevator takes less than a minute. During the day, this time to make a passenger lift for about two and a half thousand flights.

From the world of the elevator. Installation unusual lifts

Assembling original and not conventional.

This article will tell you mitol which lifts worth their weight in gold, both in mind and not for other purposes, you can use the elevator shaft, and how designers «Otis Elevator» made of several ordinary elevators quite extraordinary, almost artistic complex.

Installation of lifts gold

Hotel Parus

The subtitle makes believe that it will be a very expensive on the elevators. However, it should be understood in all senses - mitol tell you about the passenger elevators are made of the real gold.

The building is one of the best hotels in the world, which many call the "seven-star". The hotel is located in the United Arab Emirates, and her name - "Burj Al Arab".

For the construction of this monumental building was undoubtedly given the fabulous sum. This can be judged only because earlier at the site of the island, which was built "Burj Al Arab" was the sea, and the island, which is the foundation - artificial. The hotel has the world's highest lobby, and is one of the champions of the cost of living - the amount varies from a thousand to 28 thousand US dollars.

Hotel Parus lift

Installation of the lift-toilet

Lift tualet

Elevator, about which we will tell you now, in fact, not a lift. It's just a toilet, which for several reasons was undeveloped in the elevator shaft. How did this happen?
In one of the old Mexican town, whose name is read from the first time will not all - of Guadalajara, has fifteen-old house, which was built in the 70s of the last century. The building is in colonial style and when you look at it, satisfied tourists exclaim, "Bueno!".

Despite a presentable appearance, interior layout of the building, in terms of convenience for the residents, it leaves much to be desired: small apartments and narrow rooms. In some apartments there is no toilet, so creatives design studio, which received an order from the highest paid of the owner of one of the housing on the fifteenth floor, had pretty smash his head as vtesnit restroom in a narrow space. The decision came unexpectedly ...

During the construction of the house it was planned that there will be two elevators, but in the end the elevator installation was performed only in one of the mines, and the other was left vacant for more than thirty years. By happy coincidence, the apartment, which took in the design studio, was just next door to the mine lift.

Instantly solving organizational problems with local house management, our experts carried washroom in the mine. Are not limited to, the Mexican creators made the floor "lift-toilet" transparent and mine equipped with illumination that lights up with the light bulb in the bathroom, covering fifteen-defeating.
Now the landlord really is where to reflect on "high."

Installation of lifts at the Coliseum


The inventor of the first elevator is often called Archimedes scholar. Historians, meanwhile, argue that the elevator was invented much earlier. Who is right and not judge us. However, it is known that during the Roman Empire, passenger lift, as well as his brother had been in the cargo load and is widely used for its intended purpose. A striking example - passenger lifts at the Coliseum.

Historical movies about gladiators, we often suggest that a fighter before entering the arena, sitting in his closet, and after the announcement of his name mouthpiece slowly gets up and straightens his shoulders - "Going to die salute you, Caesar!". Actually closet gladiators were at the lower, ground floor of the Colosseum. How much groundwater levels were in the Coliseum while historians can not say so far - of the dungeons was littered with hundreds of years ago.
On the lower floors of the arena gladiator raised just the same passenger elevators, driven by the most popular at the time the device - slaves. Slaves were pulling winch - the elevator car drove up with a gladiator. Of course, no winch or wooden cabin lifts up to now have not been preserved, but the number of elevator shafts, historians have determined that the Coliseum was just 12 passenger lifts for the gladiators.

Lifts at the Coliseum actively remodel, reconstruct ancient drawings on hunches and modern designers. Most recently, the Minister of Culture of Italy made a presentation of the first in the restored Coliseum elevators for a few hundred kilograms. Use the lift to the scene of the Colosseum brought large animals. This invention is an engineering marvel of the ancient world: the cunning system of ropes, counterweights and balances, with the rise could handle eight people.

Elevators are also mini-pyramids and the corners move away, to the roof, making stop on floors, each of which protrudes slightly forward relative to the lower. A cage inside is dotted with ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, fancy badges and sustained in earthy tones. Installation of lifts at the pyramid "like Luxor and Casino was performed by« Otis Elevator ».

Installation of elevators. From the world of elevator 2

Installation of elevators. Elevator, Philharmonic Hall, Chelyabinsk ...

Tomskaya filarmoniya organ1

As usual, once a month mitol does for you a selection of funny, funny, touching, and most importantly - interesting events related to the elevators. This time we'll tell you about what a lift is able to do simple Chelyabinsk pensioner fraudsters, posing as employees of the lift emergency service, iPhones stolen from citizens, as well as how one governor, at the right time in the right place, can provide lifts for the disabled half of the city institutions.

Installation of an elevator for the grandchildren


Elevators for handicapped people began recently installed all over the world. Most often, they differ from ordinary passenger elevators only in that the elevator call button at the door, but the scoreboard inside the cab are on a lower level - to a person in a wheelchair could easily reach them. In some cases, all the input-output panel in the car equipped with Braille for the visually impaired.

Practice installation of elevators for people with disabilities is widely used in Russia. Mitol already told readers about how the company works, perform assembling before the Paralympics in Sochi, a Russian city to make as accessible as possible. But in Sochi lift maintenance carried out dozens of the world's best companies, and we'll tell you about the elevator, who built a single person, 66-year-old pensioner from Chelyabinsk Alexander Shustov.


Alexander last engineer. He has three grandchildren. Two of them, 20-year-old Nikita and 3-year-old Michael, can not walk.
The family lives on the second floor. At the entrance of their house, as in most Soviet-built buildings, there are no ramps. In addition, at the entrance of the old sample set decorative metal column, which prevents drive a wheelchair. To the grandchildren could spend more time outdoors, Alexander Shustov designed and performed the installation of the elevator, where the grandchildren down from the balcony straight into the yard. The guide is based in part on the elevator panel house, but an experienced engineer has calculated everything to the last detail - thanks to the foundation of the house does not spoil, but only to stabilize. Winch mechanism craftsman ordered - they can withstand up to 500 kilograms. Passenger lift starts at the touch of a button.

Maintenance lift pensioner produces itself, and periodically lubricating patching mechanism. At first, without knowing what was going on, local public utilities was tried to stop the construction of questionable design, but understood not only left alone a passenger lift and its creator, but also promised to help draw up the documents that will legalize the construction.

Maintenance of lifts. The scam century

krazha tel lifteElevator stuck. People relate differently to this situation. Some terribly afraid of it turn out otherwise - just do not care, others fantasize with whom it would be best to spend time stuck in the passenger lift. But certainly hardly anyone wants to be stuck in an elevator with a crook.

The original method invented by the Moscow crooks looting. No, they are not with you in the elevator and the elevator did not initiate a stop to the narrow space to fleece your pockets. Driving is much easier with the claim by some genius.
So presentable (as evidenced expensive shoes and the latest model of iPhone in hand) passenger enters the elevator. The doors closed, the lift goes up, but stops halfway and does not respond to the drumbeat that hapless passenger fingers or fist fights off on the keypad. Of course, the passenger tries to contact the lift emergency service, whose staff probably already know about the damage to race and did her resolve.

That seems to the elevator and the emergency services. Someone goes down into the mine, sunroof opens the elevator and assures its passengers that worry about - it now pull out. Then the man on the roof and trying to get the phone to call colleagues. Because they somehow did not answer, he asks for the phone from the passenger cabin. He holds out his iPhone, which took a man on the roof disappears forever in an unknown direction. A few minutes later comes a real elevator emergency service and the passenger cabin is safe and saved. But - without the phone.

Tomskaya filarmoniya

Continuing the theme of passenger lifts for the disabled. One of these lifts was established in Tomsk, a Siberian university town, where, finally, also got the program "Accessibility".

On leaving the building, he saw the following picture: the students will wear on the high porch of two people in wheelchairs. Officer did not like it, and he gave the order management Philharmonic consider creating a barrier-free environment in the building. Traditional variant with ramps there was no good - a majestic architectural appearance of the building would be ruined by such a structure that, because of the height of the porch was also completely useless. Attracted engineers who developed the project of installation of elevators.
The governor, meanwhile, are not sitting idly by how magically from the budget of Tomsk have been allocated 98 million rubles for the creation of an accessible environment in the city. By the end of 2015 in 19 schools of Tomsk appear lifts for the disabled. A few of these elevators will be installed in city hospitals.
