In our society, we can see that observation elevators are becoming more and more popular, lots of buildings now prefer to apply observation china elevator. You may wondering why they are so popular if you are unfamiliar with them. However, there are lots of interesting things which you don’t know that make them such desirable.
1. They are powered by air. As far as we know, cables, powerful motors, gears and lubricants are important components to a traditional elevator. Nevertheless, instead of using them, glass elevator car is propelled by air. How does it works? Here it is: the pump will lower the air pressure above the car when elevator rider wants to ascend to the next level, and once this happens the air underneath the elevator car will begin to push the car upwards. The pump allows pressure to equalize at the desired level. Then, when the rider wants to descend the same happens just in reverse; the pressure is reduced below the elevator car and the car gently falls to a lower level.
2. The wall of the elevator is made of glass. You might say glass is so fragile that how it can make elevator’s walls. In fact, vacuum elevators are not really made of “glass”, most of them are made of clear polycarbonate. Why use clear polycarbonate rather than regular glass? It is that clear polycarbonate is both cheaper and stronger than glass. The polycarbonate is a more stable material for the shaft of an elevator which stronger than glass 252 times. Besides, it is much easier and safer to work with clear polycarbonate. Since the wall sof the shaft are not made of real glass, you don’t have to worry about breaking part of your elevator or injuring yourself on broken edges.
3. Wheelchair is accessible in observation elevators. We always have a feel that vacuum elevators are so small, so it may occurs to us that wheelchairs won't fit in it. However, on the contrary, vacuum elevators come in all sizes and the larger models are absolutely wheelchair accessible. What is more, compared to traditional elevators, glass elevator are more safer for wheelchair users., for there is a smaller risk of a wheelchair user becoming trapped in a glass elevator during a power outage. And because vacuum are powered by air and no cable is required to move the elevator car, in the case of a power outage, the car will simply descend to the lowest level where the rider can then safely exit.
