News about elevators

Installation of elevators. User safety is most important

input lift

A citizen living in a small town or metropolis, busy with his vanity, every day using the elevator several times, must follow the safety rules in it. However, the design decisions and organizational measures that make elevators a safe vehicle are the concern of the manufacturer of this equipment and the service organization.

Elevator car like safety capsule

Moving on floors in a usual hurry, performing the usual actions with the elevator control, you do not feel the danger. As soon as the cabin stood between the floors, there is a slight panic at first, and then fear appears.

The elevator car, even the most comfortable, enclosed space, limited on all sides, from where it is difficult to escape, and the first thing that should be undertaken by designers is to prevent fire. In this situation, designer fantasies will not help. Materials in the manufacture of the cabin and its decorations should be non-combustible, and the doors fireproof. In the event of a power outage, the mechanism should automatically lead to the floor and open the doors.

In residential apartment buildings, such a mechanism is not everywhere, so emergency crews carry out the extraction of tenants from the elevator. In addition, in the elevator cabins of such houses, manufacturers need to think about anti-vandal designs of remotes, lamps and other room accessories.

Technical solutions that make the lifting process safe

Proven design solutions that prevent injuries in the event of a lift breakdown are as follows:

  1. The elevator car is usually suspended on at least four cables and a break in one is not a disaster.
  2. When all cables are broken, the cabin of a modern elevator is kept from falling by wedge-shaped locks (catchers).
  3. Overloading the elevator automatically blocks the movement and closing of the door.
  4. Sensors do not allow injuring users when closing elevator doors.
  5. Special shock absorbers will cushion the fall of the cab if no insurance and blocking has worked.

Organizational measures leading to the trouble-free operation of the elevator

Technical developments on the safety of elevators, accumulated after the invention of this convenient means of transportation, function normally in systems where the schedule of PPR is thought out and strictly observed.

The weakening of state control over the work of elevator companies leads to the following:

  • decrease in the professional training of technical personnel;
  • an increase in the service area by a small number of professionals only in accidents dramatically reduces equipment life;
  • Inadmissible acceptance of affiliated persons inspection and maintenance.

Companies with a long market history are more reliable in this sense. Their workforce is more professional, training and monitoring of knowledge of regulations and their ability to perform is carried out regularly. Maintenance plans in reputable firms are more developed and are strictly enforced.

It is no coincidence that people in this area understand that human safety in an elevator is more important than other values.
