The electric lifts are one of the first modern lifts and more widely used in neighboring communities.
Recall that Spain is one of the countries with more lifts per capita, because the average is nearly twenty per thousand, so its use is much more widespread than in other countries with much more population.
In this article we will explain the many advantages of electric elevators, all subsumed into five groups:
1. Versatility constructive "turnkey" and automatic revaluation of farms
When the residents agreed to acquire a lift for our building and the manager keeps the minutes of the meeting, all members who made the decision usually mixed feeling between illusion and the frustration that is drawn before us a long way from the when the decision was adopted, through the procedures to request permits the council, request and be granted the necessary grants, finding a competitive company, which is to develop the budget, starting the works and at last put in launched the "miracle" that all the neighbors were waiting for the lift.
Fortunately, everything is on the drawing. Manufacturing companies and distributors of electric elevators serve the work "turnkey" so that not only dealing with the installation but also of all the red tape involved.
Moreover, the electric lifts constructive stand out for its wide versatility. They can be built into almost any space, so that no farm can stay without your precious supplement. If the stairwell is too small -typical case of the ancients buildings, prior permission of the town hall facade can be used or the patio lights ... or even rebuild the stairs if there is no alternative. In addition, it should be noted that electric elevators save space because they do not require the installation of box machines.
Finally, and this advantage is shared by any type of lift, note the not inconsiderable advantage of the revaluation of the building. The revaluation of the higher floors of the property is directly proportional to the presence or absence of an elevator. In fact, there are cases in which requested the installation of an elevator to sell an old estate at a price between 20 and 40% higher than it would have on the market without this contraption.
An elevator is ideal for older people with mobility problems to young couples who go carts with children. Its use is universal and, obviously, essential (who likes to climb shopping bags a fifth floor without a lift?).
2. Technological advantages: speed, height, energy efficiency, comfort ...
Without any doubt, the technology of an electric elevator blunts front of a hydraulic lift. Among which we aim in this section is its speed. The electric lift is noticeably faster in the execution of their movement and the hydraulic path and speed is one of the factors governing by picking one system or another.
On the other hand, as its name says, the electric lifts are one hundred percent powered by electricity. In fact, we can refer to them as electromechanical elements, as is electricity that moves the mechanism. What clearly could be a disadvantage for excessive consumption becomes more advantage for the following reasons:
First, because in fact the electrical elevators consume less energy -therefore are sustainable with the environment- thanks to new technologies that allow install machines without reducing (allow energy savings of 42% ). In addition, add automatic shutdown systems of light when it is detected that the elevator is not working, which brings positive consequences for the Community light bill.
Another advantage in technology that differentiate them from their competitors, hydraulic elevators-which also affects the energético- savings, comfort is enjoying herself with its use, and thanks to the incorporation of frequency, they help make accurate without abruptness while decreasing stops annoying vibrations.
Related to this point of comfort provided by the inverter is noise reduction, one of the traditional complaints from neighboring communities on such elevators. This is achieved by incorporating in the pulling means cables polyurethane sheath, which reduce the noise to do practically inaudible.
3. Easy repair and / or replacement of components
The popularity in use means that, in any case have to repair any part or must be replaced, find will be a much easier task than that elevator disused whose pieces can only be found in areas very limited or simply do not exist .
Moreover, the electric lifts are served with a safe keeping manufacturer or distributor, which usually perform a technical inspection every four years.
4. Maintenance and secured trialogue
It is common not give importance to maintenance, not in regard to electric elevators, but electromechanical devices in general. You can ignore some extent maintaining a personal computer, but a lift transports people and although it is very difficult for an accident with catastrophic consequences actually occur, the possibility exists.
Therefore maintenance work must be observed, be regular and highly qualified personnel authorized and done, hopefully the company with which it has contracted the elevator.
Corrective maintenance is one in which the team intervenes once produced the ruling, while preventive maintenance is the set of techniques designed to avoid corrective repair. For example, if the technician observes in one of its routine inspections that the LEDs that illuminate the backpack elevator have little margin of life, ensure their return before they can reach off with a passenger inside.
Finally, the other maintenance that is performed in the electric elevators is called predictive maintenance, one for which the performance and availability of the elements of the revised machine is ensured. This is reviewing or testing of all system elements, their expected life and life, through a program of anomaly detection.
The sum of the three maintenance associated with such elevators entails safety and optimum performance.
5. Intrinsic safety: elevators are safer there
If there is something that outstrip electric hydraulic elevators it is by strict security controls with which they are made. If there is a recurring image that comes to the passenger's head when it comes to safety in the elevator, that's the feeling trapped inside the backpack, falling into the elevator shaft or fall with the elevator for his hole.
Popular imagery, including the film industry, have echoed it in productions that have created a myth and that have left even the elevator specific phobias, such as who has a phobia of planes or spiders. Nothing is further from reality . To summarize, experts believe that the elevator is lifting means safer there, and it is the aircraft as a means of commercial transportation.
We could think of many casuistries why feel insecure. To take the most common example, as are electromechanical elements, that when light of the ladder cut the passenger remains "trapped" in the cabin with natural fear of falling through the gap. It is an unfounded fear. First, because this type of lifts are designed to avoid their Achilles heel (the power) is a problem. In case of power failure, there are always emergency lights and control center that provides for such failure and establishes appropriate security privileges to "anchor" the backpack, is at the point where it is.
Also, by law required to hire a telephone line that allows to stay connected 24 hours with emergency services and maintenance, so the warning of the impact (no accident, we emphasize) is immediately warned set.
No mention all other caseloads that the human mind can ramble, such as falling through the gap when opening the landing door to not find the waiting cab. Simply, the landing door will not open if the backpack the elevator does not reach its destination and activates the sensor for opening.
Indeed, the electric lifts are vertical transport devices safer people that exist in the market and this is the most valid guarantee that a company like AstarLifts can offer with great pride and satisfaction.
