In addition, we gently introduce you to the traditions, Kojima strictly follow the service carried out the installation of elevators in Canada and not only, and will tell you about a passenger lift from a trip in which shivers running through the body, more like cockroaches.

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. CN Tower, with a height of 553 meters, which is 13 meters longer than that of the Ostankino television tower and almost twice the height of the Eiffel Tower, was built in 1976 and until 2007 was of the status of the highest buildings in the world. No wonder that the CN Tower is considered the hallmark of Toronto.
Tower CN Tower is equipped with six panoramic passenger lifts from the company «Otis Elevator». In this glass, not only lifts the wall, but also the floor. Assembling glass panel thickness of 6.3 cm is made in such a way that each of these lifts, even fully loaded, literally soars to a height of 346 meters at a speed of 11 meters per second, giving a great shake-up passengers. Of course, to ride with such speed was safe, lift maintenance at the CN Tower is held to the highest rank.

In addition to high-speed passenger elevators, tourists like the CN Tower in the first place for the observation deck, glass floor which rises above the earth at an altitude of 380 meters and offers an overview of 160 kilometers (if you look closely, you can see Niagara Falls). As in Chicago Willis Tower, tourists often get up on all fours, if not fall on the transparent floor, trying to overcome a fear of heights.

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.

S.Peterburg Tavricheskaya5

To be precise, at the time of the shooting, in the elevator shaft at home Khrenova Alexander has already been completed installation of electric elevator. 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.

Kovno, 17, central to the main entrance for the passenger elevator, built in the early 20th century, which has every right to be called one of the most beautiful ski lifts in St. Petersburg.

Installation of lifts for the "Singer"

Nevsky Prospect, 28 - at this address is "Zinger House", where now based house and office books "VKontakte", and in the early 20th century, as the name implies, has an office of the American company "Singer", which built it in the execution of a large order for tailoring forms for the Russian army.
Three elevators established experts was already world-famous company Otis. Installation was bodices Art Nouveau (in what was then, of course, sense of the word): the cabin was tiled with patterned fabrics, and mine dveripokryty gilded ornament.

Assembling for Pharaoh

Lifts in Ancient Egypt


Last year mitol.ru quite regularly wrote about the most interesting and entertaining passenger elevators and hoists from different corners of our planet our planet. We told you how to perform the installation of lifts that are considered to be the highest and most voluminous in the world. You learned how to conduct maintenance of elevators in the United Arab Emirates and Brazil, had the opportunity to read about the work of lift emergency services worldwide. We have tried to initiate you into the history of the first elevators and tell about the know-how in the field of lift business, the facts of which sometimes is simply breathtaking.
And today we come down from the path of interesting facts and delve into the mystique of ancient Egypt, with its pharaohs, tombs and plunderers, and ... elevators.

The birth of a miracle


God's representative on earth considered pharaohs. Perhaps the most famous of these was the Cheops - the second pharaoh of the Fourth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt. Legends of the man that he was a despot, a cruel tyrant, for 27 years of his reign, throw all the forces and resources of Egypt on behalf of the construction of the monument itself, who later became the wonder of the world - the only extant, known to us as the Pyramid of Cheops. Ten years, according to Herodotus records, it took to build kilometer, stone-paved road to the tomb, twenty years - to build a pyramid. And how long it took human lives, history is silent.
It is not known when it started and when completed the construction of the pyramid of Cheops, but in Egypt celebrated the start date of construction - August 23, 2480.
Collapsed this miracle was made of limestone and granite, on the hill. "Brilliant miracle decorated god Amon Ra sunlight" - describes an Egyptian nobleman pyramid of Cheops on papyrus, extant. Pyramid builders revived with white limestone, but in the 12th century AD, when the Arabs burned Cairo, residents built from this facing new homes.
230 meters in circumference and 146 meters in height - Pyramid of Cheops 3.5 thousand years was the tallest structure in the world. It was and remains a man-made wonder.

The fiasco of the Caliph


Inside the pyramid, since the burial of Pharaoh in her human foot never stepped around 3400 years. The first who dared to penetrate buildings covered with legends was a desperate man, part-time - Baghdad Caliph al-Ma'mun. In 831, he and his men managed to get into the main corridor of the pyramid - the Grand Gallery, where, beating a pair of granite plugs, hit the camera Pharaoh. There he found an empty granite sarcophagus, a layer of white dust of a few centimeters on the floor. And nothing more.
Al-Mamun was the Chamber of Pharaoh, groping around in the completely smooth walls, and again looking at the sarcophagus, and horror aware: publicly announce that the tomb really empty, then stand in the eyes of the local population liar, thief and treasure as consequence - a candidate for the constituency of Baghdad to the post of hangman. Revolt seemed inevitable.
But not for nothing that al-Ma'mun was a wise Caliph. He immediately ordered the faithful men brought from Baghdad gold, which threw up in a pyramid, removing thus a suspicion of stealing treasures.
However, since then and to this day no one can unravel the mystery - where the body of Pharaoh Cheops? The theory is constructed set, but one of the most likely, as probably the reader already guessed, is associated with an elevator. It's called - Theory lift.


Cheops2If this theory is confirmed, it will be possible to say with certainty that the world's first elevator installation was made in about 2480 BC. It is true that the elevator can not be called, for example, hydraulic, and lift it is called, to be honest, can not. He was a one-off, and only move down.

The theory of the elevator says that the so-called wall chambers with an empty sarcophagus of Pharaoh that he had found the poor fellow Al-Mamun - only mine, and floor of the chamber - a huge roof of the elevator car, which is, in fact, is the burial place of Pharaoh Cheops and all its treasures. Designed and installed an elevator architect Hemiunu.
Project Hemiunu in his own genius. According to him, on the floor of the mine was established several large and strong salt pillars on which to build a square stone cage, whose walls are tightly adhered to the walls of the mine. The only way out of the elevator led to the Grand Gallery. The elevator was built sarcophagus, which was laid with all the honors of the deceased pharaoh.
When all the burial ceremony had been met, the output of the elevator, the tomb was battened down, and the pyramid - is firmly plugged. Once, in the venting channels in the lower section of the mine began to pump water from which the salt pillars supporting the elevator, melted. Salt melted - lift slowly lowered until the level of its roof, which, as we recall, was installed a fake coffin, does not match the level of the floor of the Grand Gallery (by the way, a small difference in the levels still remained). A white dust, discovered Al-Mamun, - a product of friction stone walls of the elevator car on the same stone walls of the mine, plus salt residue from evaporated through the same vent water that has been superseded descended cabin.
Thus, according to the theory of lifts, the tomb of Pharaoh Cheops today - the latter is not plundered the pyramids of Egypt. However, the official science does not recognize this theory. However - and not refuted seriously. The only way to reliably make sure it's true, or just a beautiful legend - drill the floor of the Chamber of Pharaoh, which no one to this day has not done.
I wonder what kind of organization is authorized to issue paper, allowing unhindered poke puncher in the only surviving wonder of the world on the planet?

Assembling, sir!

Passenger lifts Albion


Our regular readers will no doubt have noticed that every country and almost every capital of the world, among other places, as a rule, has some unusual elevator, a kind of lift with a twist. And how could England, the great region of fog, the birthplace of football and noble gentlemen of Sherlock Holmes and Oliver Twist be an exception to this rule? No, sir, could not and did not!

A bit of history

parovoy liftIndustrial enterprises in England were among the first in the world began to use freight elevators, driven by steam. There are documents dating from 1835, which referred to steam elevators. However, the idea was soon abandoned this: to lift acted, the steam engine was run continuously, and for large enterprises, where the lift used sporadically, it was unproductive and unprofitable.
In 1849 an English hotel «Osmaston Manor» elevator was installed - the world's first ski lift with hydraulic cylinder plunger type of direct action.

Tower Bridge

In 1894, the London Tower Bridge was opened, in the towers which were 2 hydraulic lift up to 40 people, one of whom worked on the rise, and the second - on the descent. The two towers were connected by a gallery, which originally served to go on the opposite shore, when the bridge was diluted. But because of the frequent robberies that took place in them in 1910, they were closed and today visitors can see only the outside of the mechanisms of previous years. Now the gallery is a museum of the Tower Bridge and the observation deck offers beautiful views of London from the Thames.

Eternal elevator

PaternosterThree facts: the eternal elevator was invented in England, he is the slowest in the world and it has no doors.

Paternoster - the name is a passenger Paternoster - design, which is a chain of elevator cars that move one after the other, even for a second without stopping. At any time when the cabin paternoster passes through floor, it is possible to enter or exit. This system is perhaps best characterized by one of the translations of the word paternoster - «rosary." Cabins really like beads that in turn, one after the other fingering.

Paternoster were appreciated by large companies and government agencies, is located in multi-storey buildings with a large staff. Elevator installation is not particularly difficult, his cabin, one after another continuously moving through the building, perfectly cope with passenger traffic of any intensity. Needless to say, that the phrase "to wait for the elevator" in such institutions to abolish itself as unnecessary?

In 20-30 years of the last century, several ministries and departments of Moscow were equipped Paternoster. In the current Russian Ministry of Agriculture building these passenger lifts, already assembled in 1933, work fine so far.
Information about the world's first Paternoster very little. Most sources indicate that the pioneer was like an elevator installed in the English town of Essex. Elevator installation was carried out in 1884. Lift this, incidentally, also live to this day!
In our time, the installation of new Paternoster in some countries has been banned because construction lifts are not adapted for the disabled. I wonder what Paternoster, from England quickly spread across Europe, were completely unknown in the United States. However, there is nothing surprising: in terms of lift business America went on its way ahead, I must say, the rest of the world. At the time, while England reveled in Paternoster, American Mr. Otis elevator and created his emergency brake, which still amazes with its simplicity and genius everyone who has anything to do with the installation of lifts.

The most delicious elevator

Have you ever wanted to lick ... lift? It is possible that after reading the following text, want. And while you're trying to figure out what was happening and looking for the catch, we start ...


Remember the tale of the gingerbread house, where she was a witch, has used this very flat as bait for the kids? One of the London-based firm went further, deciding to create a gingerbread elevator.
In order to diversify boring life of clerks and give them a bit of joy, the firm «Engine», office of which is located on Great Portland, decided to decorate the walls of the elevator famous fruit and a jam biscuits «Jaffa Cake». The design of the elevator took in 1300 of cookies. The project a few weeks worked a staff of technicians and artists. According to one of the project leaders, the idea of creating such a lift was not inspired by the tale of the gingerbread house, and the movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."

However, not all employees of the company «Engine» embraced the idea with enthusiasm, rushed to lick sweet wall. Many confused, to say the least, some unhygienic project. However, the management company says that at the height of hygiene.
- The walls are covered with special wallpaper elevator, on which are mounted «Jaffa Cake». If at least one visit a cookie used to be licked, lifter immediately swap it with fresh. Be sure that any biscuits licking in the elevator, you - the first who did it - assured the representative of the «Engine» in an interview with a British weekly.

It turns out that workers performing maintenance of the elevator, it is necessary, among other things, to change cookies on its walls.
However, this idea has a positive side. For example, for a long time to get stuck in a lift, waiting for the elevator emergency service, not so bad. At least starvation stuck in it just is not threatened.

Lift car8

Initially, it must be said, was one of the smart way to increase the number of seats on the covered parking lot. Recently, this idea was used in not very large in area institutions: business centers, restaurants, and even in apartment buildings affluent areas.
The design and installation of an elevator is very simple: between two racks mounted a broad platform lift. It is made usually of durable, multi-layer stainless.

The owner of the car pulls into the platform stops the engine, down to earth and a touch of a button raises his four-wheeled friend to a height of a couple of meters. Formed under the platform usable space, which immediately takes another car. However, the one who is located directly on the platform, often for good reason there are problems with the departure. However, it is not uncommon for standard parking.

Lift car5

Such an idea - a treasure trove for large sites. If an installation of two elevators, one of the pillars usually becomes common to both, which is very profitable.
Not disdain innovation and the owners of cottages, slowly increase the usable area of your garage. However, many have to deepen the garage so that he could accommodate two cars in height.

Car lift - lift

Lift car1

It is this simple design - namely, four post car lift type - often used in multi-level parking, large warehouses, service centers and distribution centers. The design is simple, but in this case - is practical and more convenient.
Elevator installation is carried out just like all brilliant. Four strong steel rack, they - the guides, set loading platform, driven by strong chain drives. On the level of strength and the number of racks and power drives depends on carrying capacity of the elevator car. For parking is often - 5000 - 6000 kilograms.

Lift car6

Vehicle Lifts four-post type necessarily equipped with reliable security system, including an emergency brake device monitors the status of the chains and, of course, a function of emergency braking.
The platform on which the calls in the car, opened the front and rear, making transport can be downloaded at any level of the parking lot, in any direction.
Large enterprises, building and parking for transport of personnel, more often and bought large amounts of assembling automotive lifts, seeking to more efficiently use the area.

Car lift - exhibition

Lift car9

Who has ever been to a large, international automobile exhibition, certainly remembers how effectively the new models appear as if from nowhere, and slowly rotate before the astonished eyes of the spectators.
The secret is that the car ahead of time put on a special 360-degree rotating platform, the so-called turntable. At first glance it may seem that the use of the turntable purely decorative - for effect, but where to make the maneuver by car is not possible, the turntable - perhaps the only way out. That is why car lifts in large car parks, often equipped with them.

Car lift - garage

 Lift car7

If the machine takes up space on the plot, you're thinking about building a garage, and money do not mind, you can order the creation of an underground garage, where transport will be effectively lowered on the lift.
That is the garage, in fact, will lift. In the raised position, it is a sort of canopy fixed to four racks. Moves this edifice extremely powerful electric drive.

In general version of this seductive only because the chance of stealing a car from the garage of the virtually zero. When closed, the garage is invisible on the roof it can be broken lawn with sun loungers or, for example, put the doghouse. How effectively will be the appearance of the car from the ground in the morning ...
That's the neighbors will be jealous!
