Types of Passenger Lifts

There are a number of diverse types of passenger lifts available to install in your business or home that will make it easier for your customers or guests to move around your offices or home. Each type of lift is designed and engineered to provide a safe way to transport people to different floors in a building and each type of lift has specific uses unique to the lift in question.

Glass passenger lifts

Glass passenger lifts are a popular type of lift used to provide a panoramic view of the surrounding geography and transport passengers to the higher levels within a building. This type of lift is available in a number of different forms, including hydraulic, traction and room-less, and is used in shopping centres, sports facilities, offices, public buildings and other types of facilities around the world to lift passengers to upper floors in buildings.

Standard hydraulic lifts

Standard hydraulic lifts are used to transport passengers vertically in buildings only rising to a certain height, but they generally require less time to install and less expensive in the end to purchase and use. This type of passenger lift has been used for decades and recent innovations in this type of life include magnet motors and even microprocessor controls to make this type of life easier to use.

Electric traction lifts

Electric traction lifts are a versatile type of passenger lift implemented to transport passengers to higher floors in taller buildings, and they generally travel faster and can carry more passengers. This type of lift can carry from 4 to 21 passengers and can reach a vertical speed of 1.0 to 1.6 meters per second.

Machine room-less lifts

Machine room-less lifts are traction drive lifts with the entire lift system located within the lift shaft of the building in which they are installed. This type of passenger lift uses a counter-weight system that significantly reduces the power consumed during use and is easier to maintain than some types of lifts, which results in a generally lower operating cost over the long term.

Vertical platform lifts

Vertical lifts are smaller elevators used to transport passengers vertically shorter distances between floor levels and some models can travel vertically up to three floors in a building. This type of lift can be installed indoors and outdoors and can be purchased as a completed, self-contained system within its own enclosure, or can fit inside a shaft in a building.

Inclined platform lifts

Inclined platform lifts are lifts that raise and lower a platform vertically on an angle, rather than straight up and down as other types of platform lifts do. This type of life can be installed to follow the path of a flight of stairs and is most commonly used to allow wheelchair users to travel up a set of stairs without help, or having to get in or out of a traditional lift. Inclined platform lifts are also used to move product around factories, in theatres and other entertainment venues.

Rack and pinion lift

Rack and pinion lifts are lifts are used to provide lift capabilities in situations where space is tight and are used to transport both people and cargo vertically to higher floors. This type of lift generally is easier and cheaper to maintain than other types of passenger lifts and can be quickly and efficiently installed in either stair wells or lift shafts.
