Observation Elevator are mainly composed of traction machines (winches), guide rails, counterweight devices, safety devices such as speed limiters, safety gears and buffers, signal handling systems, cabs and hall doors. These parts are installed in the building's hoistway and engine room respectively. Usually friction rope drive, wire rope around the traction sheave, both ends of the car are connected to the balance weight, the motor driven traction sheave car lift. Elevator requires safe and reliable, high transmission efficiency, leveling accuracy and ride comfort. The basic parameters of the elevator are the rated load capacity, number of passengers, rated speed, the size of the car and the hoistway contour and so on.
Observation elevator A motor-powered vertical lift with a box-shaped pod for use in multi-storey buildings for passenger or cargo handling. One or more of the hoistway walls and the car wall are transparent materials, passengers can watch the scenery outside the car when they take the elevator. Served on the provisions of the fixed floor lift equipment. Mainly installed in hotels, shopping malls, high-rise office space occasions.
The Observation elevator can be installed inside or outside the new building, or it can be implemented as an existing building renovation project. It is noteworthy that the tourist elevators installed outside the building must meet special conditions to resist the adverse effects on the elevator equipment caused by the weather conditions at the installation site.
Icing and frost pose a tremendous threat to the operation of the common load-cell exterior sightseeing ladder. Insiders suggest that in places where icing and frost occur frequently unsuitable for the installation of outdoor observation elevators. Where icing and frost are infrequent, outdoor sightseeing ladders should be stopped in the event of icing and frost. Windy weather can be the second reason that people have to reduce the speed of an outdoor sightseeing ladder or stop the elevator. Frequent winds are not suitable for outdoor viewing ladders unless the hoistway is completely sheltered from the outside of the building. Therefore, in this case, it is very important to install the indoor elevator separately in the building, so that the indoor elevator can still guarantee the vertical transport without interruption when the weather conditions are unfavorable to the outdoor elevator operation.
