floor without elevator1

We will start this time with fun. However, as anyone. Imagine that you, as if nothing had happened, enter the elevator, press the button on the floor board. Lift doors close almost silently, suggesting that maintenance of elevators in this building takes place at the highest level. Cab gently touch it, and it falls to the floor you ...

And if it was just a failure in a mine, it would, perhaps, not so bad. But no - you under fire, hell, and hell. In the first few seconds, must be very scared, and adrenaline (or as it's called?) Just spurts. They say half a meter - not limit the height at which jumped frightened passengers.

The originality of this design, developed by British engineer, designer, and just plain fun guy Andrew Walker specifically for London shopping center «Southside» that passengers do not immediately see the picture (yes, this is the figure) on the floor of the elevator. Only after the elevator car picks up speed, the filter that hides a fiery abyss 3D drawing on the floor, it becomes transparent.

Andrew Walker's idea proved to be very popular. She picked up one of the largest manufacturers of electronics, setting in one of the elevators instead of the floor. When the elevator starts moving, "sex" elevator began to "crumble", but the passengers - frantically jump and grab the handrails for each other.

Minsk shopping center "Capital" is often compared with the Moscow "willingly close." He goes underground on three floors and, according to Belarusian media, could easily fit a Eiffel tower on its side. And its area, according to the same sources, is equal to the square of ten football fields.

Installation of lifts in the Red Church

Belarus red Church A

Few people know that in the most famous Catholic church in Minsk - the Church of Saints Simon and Helena, which is popularly referred to only as the Red Church, there is an elevator. - Or rather, was.

Belarus red Church1 AThe Soviet government could not ignore the Red Church. In 1932, all the Christian relics were taken out, and the building was adapted for film studio. It was then and there was made the installation of the elevator to move kinorekvizita the storage chamber, which, for some reason, was located on the top of one of the towers of the church.

In 1990, when the building of the church returned to the Catholic community, maintenance elevator stopped unnecessary. And since the dismantling of the passenger poldemnika and the elevator shaft was to perform expensive and time, owners of the building came easier: top shut out of the lift cabinet and bottom, at the very bottom of the mine made a "grotto Uterine Bosco" - exposition, stone-built, with a statue of the Mother of God in Full-length inside.

Installation of lifts. Curiosities

Installation of lifts and a bit of humor

Ever since Monsieur Otis launched the world's first assembly-line production of passenger elevators, and installation and maintenance of elevators strongly occupied a niche in the market, elevators become actors stories, jokes and cartoons. And almost every funny story about the elevator based on real events.

Curve mine

Dneprovskie bashni1

Most probably, an elevator loud funny thing happened last year in Kiev in the construction of a housing estate Vigurovschina-Troyeshchyna. This sleeping area can be called there the analogue of the Moscow Southern Butovo. The legend with a touch of humor (it is clear what content) that go to the people of the area, recently added one more - directly related to the installation of lifts.

At the beginning of the two thousandth in Vigurovschine-Troeschina began the construction of a 34-storey high-rise "Dnieper towers." It was originally planned that the six skyscrapers will be one of the most modern residential complexes in Europe, equipped with the latest models of passenger elevators. But if caught defaulting contractor or, as usual in Russia, some of the money had gone the wrong way: Eleven years after the start of construction, when the skeletons of buildings have already been fully prepared, and began their finishing "turnkey", it turned out that every building mowing, deviated an average of 10 yards. The contractor, however, argued that the slope of the building is not more than one or two meters, and only because the ground on which stands the foundation, very watery.

While the expert committee to sort out who and where screwed up, assembling elevators made their disappointing verdict: perform installation of elevators in this building possible. Due to an error builders building already narrow elevator shaft was bent so that the passenger elevator without going in it and half way, firmly stuck would provide work for elevator emergency services.
However, Ukrainian experts in the service sector are confident that the narrow mine - not a sentence. Produce smaller elevator to order, for companies such as «Otis Elevator» or «Kone» - a piece of cake. In addition, the alignment curves buildings - not a new practice in construction.

Captives lift

Ufa Aigul

There is light at the man-citizen, who has never thought about how it - stuck in an elevator together with beauty? And hardly a single man wanted to get stuck in a small narrow passenger elevator with six players.
Next curiosity, not associated with the installation of elevators, but a valued member of which was the passenger elevator, occurred in the city of Ufa with seven players of the football team of the same name. The day when the football stadium was filled Ufa eyeballs fans awaiting the paint match between "Ufa" and "Khimki" almost became fatal for the home team.

When it's time to go to the stadium, seven players "Ufa" simultaneously squeezed into a passenger lift to pull the front door of the hotel "Agulla." Overloads - the lift got stuck. But the funny thing about this story is not overloaded, and that seven players descended on a small passenger elevator ... from the second floor.

Within an hour, lift the emergency services and the Ministry of Emergencies extracted stuck athletes from the elevator. And maintenance of elevators worked, I must say, it's great: all seven players had to the stadium before the match, and "Ufa" beat "Khimki" with a score of 3: 2.

Ufinsky curiosity was appreciated by many sports tabloids and even entered the top ten most ridiculous situations that fall athletes, according to eurosport.ru. And the players have certainly learned from what happened a good lesson, and next time you need to come down from the second floor, take advantage of the stairs. Or, at least, a freight elevator.

Stuck governor

Odessa veteransky dom

Odessa veterans to May 9, 2012 promised to issue an apartment in a new building. The importance and solemnity of the event exaggerate hard, and oversaw the construction of the house took the governor of Odessa Edward Matveichuk. When receiving the visually finished building, it turned out that passenger elevators do not work. The contractor assured that this is temporary, and services running installation of elevators, solemnly assured the head of Odessa, during inspections lift worked like clockwork. Believe in the word, the governor, showing excellent physical shape, walk up to the top floor, the examination of each apartment, and decided to go back to the freight elevator.

On the way down the freight elevator with the governor and journalists are often twitching, it is unclear to vibrate, and between the first and second floor - all stuck. For a while contractors tried on their own to rescue prisoners from the cab of the freight elevator, but in vain - had to call the elevator emergency services, which dealt with this matter in a few minutes.

It is not hard to guess what mood Matveichuk Edward walked out of the elevator. He at no one shouted, and said quietly, representatives of the construction company that in four days again come to the house and personally ride on each passenger elevators, freight elevators will test all for efficiency.

And the problem was solved - maintenance of elevators passed at the highest level.

Installation of lifts and magic numbers

Wandering through the expanses of the Internet, you can often stumble upon the assertion that the streets of the United States can not be found at home with the number "13", and in high-rise buildings States, home of the lift maintenance, there is floor with this number. The legend that Americans are afraid of fire as a baker's dozen, passed from mouth to mouth and ... is a complete fabrication.

And here in Canada, the number 13 is considered to be really bad. Installation of elevators, as well as construction of buildings, carried out in such a way as to protect the inhabitants of the country of the maple leaf from the meeting with a terrible baker's dozen: no floors, no buttons, no house numbers. Of course, this is done at the request of tenants: if a person wants to live in the house with the number 13, no one would prohibit him this.

Fear of a baker's dozen in Canada sometimes so strong that it comes to the ridiculous. This led to the fact that a few of the high-rise buildings of downtown Toronto when replacing lifts lifts embedded board, on which there were no buttons 13 floors. While the 13 stories in the building were. Likely to lift emergency services received from tenants of the house a lot of questions ...
In Russia, as we know, these problems when installing elevators do not happen. We come simpler then click neponravivshegosya floor just burn. Or break out.

Assembling turnkey

Canada Vancouver

No, not in the sense in which that expression is usually consumed Russian marketers. We are talking about a system of key controls access to the elevator - Canadian chip.
We, however, do not undertake to say that this is a Canadian invention, but that it is most popular in this country - is indisputable. Installation of elevators in modern skyscrapers in Canada involves embedding electronic circuitry lift access control functions. That is, without a special key in the elevator does not go.
But that's not all. Going into the elevator, you have to make your key to the button with the number of floors, but not anyhow any, namely yours. Otherwise - does not work. That is, you can use the elevator only to go down to the first or the same - up to my floor.

In the freight elevator Canadian homes under the ceiling has small hooks. If the tenant was going to move, it must notify tamoshnem zhilkontoru about it, the exact date and time of your move. On the appointed day, at a set time, freight elevator transferred to a special regime and moves only with floor tenant claimed at first and back. A hung on hooks special fabric that protects the wall of the elevator from scratches.
In recent years, assembling with key access control system is becoming more common in Russia. It's clear why: great live, knowing that nobody will spoil the elevator, and its staircase you will not meet anyone except her neighbors.
But that the residents of these houses do when they need to, for example, from your floor to go to the ninth - a mystery. Probably go up the stairs. Or call the neighbors from above: "Hey, Lucas, where are you? I'm on the fifth. You go with me? ".

Installation of lifts and TV tower

Canada Toronto

15 thick hippos can simultaneously raise passenger lift the tower CN Tower, which pierces the sky of the Canadian city of Toronto.

Installation of lifts in St. Petersburg

The most beautiful and unusual lifts the cultural capital of Russia.

Zimniy dvorets

Re-start with a story. Putting aside lifts, driven by oxen, and peasant land force, the history of the installation of elevators in Russia should be calculated from the 18th century. It begins in St. Petersburg: it was there, in 1793 an engineer Ivan Kulibin by order of Empress Catherine II completed the installation of the elevator in the Winter Palace.

Installation of lifts for the Empress

Lift Zimniy1"The car of the two large, fixed-pole screws. They like Karetny body place with hoisting it seats, sat with them special, with the rescue of two people who are near, should climb up and down a vertical line "- a documented description of the passenger elevator kulibinskoy design came to our days.
Portions of this elevator were discovered only recently, during the restoration of the Winter Palace in the early 21st century. After the death of the great empress responsible for the maintenance of lifts is not, and the elevator shaft Kulibina laid bricks. However, having heard about the new product, the court of Catherine II as one picked up the idea and began to set in their residences screw elevators and their lackeys, obviously, had to learn the wisdom of elevator maintenance. And in the 19th century elevators, custom, began to appear in state institutions in St. Petersburg. As a rule, the cabin lifts while certainly were faced with precious woods, inlaid ornaments of precious metals and stones, and inside the lifts were installed comfortable sofas.
I must say that lifts themselves, and installation of elevators and lift maintenance carried out so efficiently, that some of these delightful structures have survived to this day.

Assembling for an architect

Not so much the fashion trends as an opportunity to take the more expensive apartments (as mentioned in the ads), led by architect Alexander Khrenova perform the installation of the elevator in his apartment house on the street Tauris, 5, which was built in 1909 in the Art Nouveau style. Admirers of Eldar Ryazanov know that in this house the director filmed a wonderful comedy "The key to the bedroom." In several episodes, and this marked the most lift.

The old steam hoist and impractical, requiring constant monitoring of lift emergency services, as well as in apartment house merchant Eliseev, dismantled. But the elevator shaft unusual round shape has reached our days, has not changed.

Installation of lifts for the merchant

Lift Fontanka64More precisely - in the apartment house of the merchant Eliseev, which stands on the Fontanka River, 64. It is believed that this is the elevator in the building, designed by the author of many buildings, the architect Gabriel Vasilyevich Baranovsky, was the first steam lift installed in St. Petersburg. Anyway - a first.

Passing through the courtyard of the house with a beautiful facade to the front door, jamb which is lined with decorative ceramics, you will immediately notice the spiral staircase behind the door, lit on both sides of the light entering the lobby of the windows facing into the courtyard on either side of her. The entrance of the house of the people dubbed "Daisy". Unusual shape, painted in yellow color, inlaid fancy moldings, he really resembles a flower.

Steam elevator, located just behind the stairs, according to one version was discharged from America. The assumption that its design was also designed by Gabriel Baranovsky, easily refuted by the fact that the spacious elevator car outside looks flashy and clearly does not fit into the design of the building.
In our time, the elevator in the apartment house of the merchant Eliseev was only round the mine, which employs quite a common sovdepovsky passenger lift with electric.
