One of the best reasons to install an China Home Lift is that it greatly improves the accessibility to the upper levels of your home. This is particularly beneficial if you have older family members living in the home or if you yourself have mobility problems. An elevator can eliminate the risk of falling down stairs for family members and guests who might otherwise have a hard time climbing up a staircase.
An elevator is a platform, either open or enclosed, used for lifting people or freight to upper floors within a building. Elevators are a standard part of any tall commercial or residential building. In recent years, the introduction of the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act has required that many two-story and three-story buildings be retrofitted with elevators.
The most common type of elevator is the cable elevator, which is a much better energy spender and doesn't require intense drilling to build. An elevator car is hooked up to four to eight steel cables that run over a grooved pulley at the top of the building. The cables are attached to a weight on the other side of the pulley that acts as a balancer, conserving energy so the pulley doesn't have to move much to raise or lower the elevator car. A computer system is put in place that locates where the elevator car is and keeps track of floor requests when buttons in the elevator car or on different levels are pushed. Depending on the elevator system, the computer then figures the best way to move the car as efficiently as possible to get everyone where they need to go.
Although elevators are more reliable and easier to maintain than in the past, the growing demand for convenience and access has raised the bar for reliability. Today, building occupants and visitors alike expect 100 percent reliability.
