Whereas, home elevators are intended to be used in private houses, duplex, villas, bungalows and private use. How does it matter Let me tell you in simple words, have you ever noticed warning boards inside elevators mentioning Children below 14 years should not use the lift’? How can you tell this to your kids or elders at home? That is why a home elevator has evolved
In fact, even renowned brands manipulate consumers in INDIA and sell them commercial lifts for their residence. In short, you do not want to have a security guard to operate the lift and have a trained technician to be available to handle emergency situation 24/7 because that is what these commercial elevators require.
These elevators are designed to transport both passengers and goods. These systems include elongated passenger cars and are most often found in employee-only areas of hospitals, hotels, shopping centres, apartment buildings and other commercial locations. They require immense civil modifications like Pit, Machine Room and Headroom and most importantly run only on three phase power supply.
THE TYPES OF COMMERCIAL ELEVATORS
There are also several different types of elevators. The one that’s best for your application will depend on the height of your building, the speed you need and other factors.
Hydraulic systems have a fluid-driven piston mounted inside of a cylinder that lifts the cab. These elevators are best for low-rise buildings no more than five stories tall.
Traction steel ropes are used to raise and lower the cab in traction elevators. These systems are found in mid- to high-rise buildings
Machine Room-Less (MRL) Elevators
Either traction or hydraulic, MRL commercial elevators don’t require a machine room. This can create more space in the top of the building and requires same energy to operate as it accommodates huge machinery within the shaft. Moreover, the shaft size, pit and Headroom increases to compensate the lack of machine room
In India, there is no proper safety standards for elevators. It allows for anyone to build a lift and sell it as a device. So Home elevators must comply to third-party standards of safety to ensure the utmost security and safety.
