Elevator Technology: The
Latest Advancements in Vertical Transportation.
will briefly review the history of elevator technology and what is available
today, giving attendees a clear understanding of the different types of
technologies and the drawbacks vs. benefits of each type.
The presentation will
specifically discuss the machine room-less elevator solution which removes the
machine room from the top or bottom of the building, providing design
flexibility, maximizing leasable floor space and minimizing construction costs.
This solution, which is environmentally friendly, requires 1/3 of the energy of
a typical hydraulic elevator, can contribute to LEED credits, and - unlike a
hydraulic system - there is no need to drill a cylinder hole which presents the
risk of oil contaminates.
Also included in the oral
presentation will be comments about editing ARCOM Masterspec Section 14 21 23.16
"Machine Room-Less Electric Traction Passenger Elevators".
