The Future of Modern Elevators in the U.S
Modern elevator design continues to take great strides forward in the efficiency and safety of elevator systems. These enhancements go unnoticed by most people, but they provide substantial benefits for property managers and building owners. At Action Elevator, we strive to bring our customers all of the advantages of cutting-edge technology.
In recent times, the sharing of multiple cabs on one elevator shaft has slowly become possible. The main benefit of this innovation is that it can move double the passengers at the same time. This means shorter waiting times, greater productivity, and more satisfied patrons. This design has made it into buildings throughout the world and will undoubtedly become popular in the U.S.
A Quick Look at the Technology
The key to this approach is in the elevator control panels and the sophisticated software running the elevator. Riders choose their respective destination on the panel display instead of buttons on the elevator wall. High-tech software groups riders traveling to the same floor or area of the building and allows passengers not to stop on each floor and wait while other passengers enter the cab. The genius of this plan works best in particular situations:
- For taller buildings
- For active workplaces that require frequent elevator travel, such as hospitals
- For businesses that have congested cabins
The benefit of having two elevator cabs is that one cabin can be used for strategically planned travels between lower floors while the other can move riders from the middle floor to the top. If few passengers are riding, then only one elevator cab will be necessary. This will allow the other cab to stay parked on either end of the shaft leading to energy savings.
Benefits of Two Elevator Cabs in the Same Elevator Shaft
With improvements in software and design, elevator systems are getting better all of the time. Property managers should look into ways to modernize their elevators for riders. With a two-cab system, this technology not only removes congestion in elevator cars but also frees up space in your property, allowing you to add additional conference rooms, offices, game rooms, cafes, etc.
As more offices and workspaces continue to move into downtown high-rises, it’s essential to provide further weightage to maximize space efficiency. Additionally, with the advancement in this technology, the elevator software can monitor the gap between two elevator cars so that vertically stacked enclosures don’t bump into each other. If the cars get too close, they will automatically slow down before coming to a halt one floor apart.
