And , paradoxically , for the same reason, Japan is in high demand installation of lifts : lack of land fund long forcing the city to stretch skyward roofs of skyscrapers , and designers - to explore new , more adapted to the conditions of island frames and foundations of tall buildings , passenger lifts .
However, the dimensions - this is what the draw is not only the company's production and installation of lifts, but all and sundry . The main feature elevators from Japanese manufacturers are not the volume and speed , and the quality , reliability and safety .
For maintenance of elevators in Japan imposed very strict requirements. When accepting the passenger elevator in the building , checking commissions measure the everything from energy consumption and the thickness of the rope , to suppress vibration and noise in the mine, the level of air resistance . Pays great attention to the security aspect . Japanese employees lift emergency tested long training and ongoing training .
Of course , all these measures are not a good life : the constant earthquakes, tsunamis and other natural misfortune and piled on her head the Japanese people , causing them to develop more and more new technical tools that will make them more earthquake-proof buildings , city - comfortably , elevators - quality and safe .
