Architecture Benefits From Quality Elevator Design & Installation

By: Scott Henson

Without a doubt, New York City is the greatest metropolis in the world.  Repeatedly the beauty of the city is affirmed by all who come and experience its magnificence. An architectural marvel, New York City, continues to shape the lives, hopes, and dreams of millions of people. Those who are lucky enough to call this city home, are continuously surrounded by the light, and the movement, and the design that are legends of poetry. Lucky as they are, the residents of New York City must deal with some harsh realities. Many who live in historic buildings find that elevator problems are common.

The elevator stops abruptly, moves haltingly, and then stops short of the hallway floor. The door sticks, and it is evident it is time for an elevator upgrade. While it is desirable to live in a historical marvel, modern life begs for convenience.  Upgrades ensure proper mechanical operation which is essential for safety.

Solutions for Common Problems in an Elevator

The brains of an elevator system are the controller.  Controllers usually last about 25 years and generally are the major component replaced during an elevator upgrade. The newest controllers are microprocessor-based with variable frequency. A Variable Frequency Drive provides for smooth cab movements because the ride begins slowly and then gradually increases and then reduces speed for a gradual stop. There is no reason to put up with an erratic elevator trip when easy solutions are available.
