The insides of these elevators are well furnished and are built on the state-of-the-art technology. These elevator are very helpful for those who are physically challenged and for those along in years and have enough space to carry a wheelchair too in case one is bound to move in one. The safety features are- the interlocking door system, manual door hold, telephone, security camera, Air conditioner and many more... These elevator have lower waiting time and downtime. Minimum brake down calls are some of the assurances if these elevators. Passenger elevator need far less maintenance when compared to those of other elevators.
Goods lifts are designed for moving goods from one floor of a work place to another. It is a lift quite similar to a passenger lift, but one that is dedicated to carrying goods, usually on a pallet, but not necessarily so. Sometimes these lifts are combined with passenger needs to become a dual purpose lift. These are usually larger than goods only lifts.
These passenger elevators are used in small buildings like in a home or also in huge buildings. These residential elevators are slow and their carrying capacity is less but the passenger elevators installed in huge buildings have higher carrying capacity and are fast between floors.
Lifts for goods are generally supplied in standard sizes in a range that is usually suitable for most industries. However, they can be supplied in custom sizes to suit individual companies. This may be because of space restrictions, or possibly for any other number of reasons. There is a definite flexibility in the physical size and the carry capacity, and therefore the availability, of lifts designed to carry goods.
The legislation that governs the level of safety and protection in a goods only lift is not nearly as stringent as the legislation required for lifts that are designed to carry people. When a lift is dual purpose, designed to carry both goods and people, The legislation governing the lift has to be to the higher standard of that governing the carrying of passengers.
Goods lifts have to be installed in work places where the legislation in force makes it mandatory. However, there are plenty of work places where these types of lifts have been installed simply because it makes sense. Having a lift to move heavy goods can be more efficient and more cost effective. Because machinery does most of not all of the heavy lifting and moving, there is generally less lifting-related employee injury, and therefore less time spent off work by those likely to be affected.
Passenger elevator as the name suggests is meant only to carry people between floors. These elevators is normally very heavy in the range of 500-3000 kilos. These are of 2 types - electric and hydraulic which can move up to eight floors. These are capable of reaching speeds of about 200-500ft/min. In building which are higher than ten floors gearless elevators are used which can also travel at similar speeds and those which are installed for more than ten floors can travel at speeds unto 2000 ft/min.
