Installation of elevators. Petronas Towers

Tower Petronas

The capital of Malaysia Kuala Lumpur has many interesting sights. But, the most grandiose and majestic structure is the towers "Petronas". Many tourists, having got to Kuala Lumpur, first of all go to look at the famous towers - a masterpiece of architecture. The author of the project is the Argentine architect Cesar Pelli. He tried to put his bold ideas into the project. When you stand beside the twin towers, you involuntarily feel dizzy. In the name of the towers, the author put all the meaning. First of all, he was worried about the form. He analyzed, invented. And, finally, it was decided to build two next-standing buildings, which should be the highest in the world.

The Petronas oil corporation financed the construction.

The project and construction of the Petronas Towers Twin Towers was financed by Petronas State Petroleum Corporation. For all was spent about 800 million dollars. Some part of the expenses was financed by the large companies of Malaysia, which later occupied part of the office premises. The towers were connected to each other by covered junctions in the form of a bridge.

Petronas towers were made in the form of corn cobs, but with observance of all canons and traditions of Islamic architecture. The height of the towers "Petronas" is 452 meters and can be seen from all parts of the city. Both buildings have 88 floors. They accommodate office premises of companies, several restaurants and bars, a cinema, exhibition halls and a shopping center. On the 86th floor there is an observation deck. The most unique in the project is the air bridge "Sky Bridge", connecting both towers at the level of 41 and 42 floors.

On the sides of the towers there are semicircular projections, which have been built up for stability. The air bridge is located so that visitors can see the whole of Kuala Lumpur from a bird's eye view. The government of Malaysia demanded that the towers be decorated with steel spiers. Therefore, the towers "Petronas" are the highest twin towers in the world since 1998. These towers - skyscrapers should be a symbol of the new Malaysia, which is rapidly developing. The idea of ​​Cesar Pelly was embodied. Today the towers of Petronas are the face of Malaysia. The towers are a symbiosis of the most modern technologies, fantasies of the architect and traditions of Islam.

Two-storey elevators in the towers.

The buildings are impressive not only for their height. The total area of ​​all premises is forty-eight football fields. The foundation of the towers is installed on concrete piles that go deep into the earth for 100 meters. Since the towers did not have excess space for additional elevator shafts, the installation of elevators was carried out in a confined space and a cunning principle was applied here. All the elevators in the towers are two-story, that is, when landing on their own floor, if it is odd, then on the elevator you can only exit on an even floor, and if even, then on even. Interesting passenger elevators can be seen in the towers "Petronas". Maintenance of elevators is carried out regularly, mainly at night. But the elevator emergency services are experiencing some inconvenience, as if in an emergency situation they have to get people out of the elevator booths immediately on two floors, because the lifts are two-story. In total, 78 freight and passenger elevators are in the Petronas tower, and they are divided into tiers: up to the 16th floor one can climb on one group of elevators, from 16th to 41st floor - on the other, and to go up to the top floor, bridge. All elevators are very spacious and each elevator car is designed for 52 people. To go up to the top floor you need to spend a half minutes.
At night, the towers are backlit. Each tower has about 16,000 windows. The illuminated towers give the impression of a fairytale castle.

The images of the towers show how successfully the incompatible one was combined (different architectural styles and epochs were combined). The entire scale of investment should be convinced in the material well-being of the country.
The towers "Petronas" is the "Mecca" of the creators of computer games.
As in all of Asia, the service staff is friendly and friendly. At any time you will be honored and all your requests fulfilled.
