This design utilizes a geared traction machine, along with the controller and governor, mounted in a penthouse machine room directly above the hoistway. This application uses hoist ropes and counterweight to move the car, in lieu of a hydraulic jack. The counterweights can be positioned at the rear of the car (front open only), or at the side of the car. In addition to the main rails, a set of counterweight frame rails are also required.
Advantages to using this design include a much faster speed capability, an unlimited travel range and a higher power efficiency than hydraulic car types. In addition, there is no hydraulic oil being used.
Disadvantages include a substantially higher material cost than hydraulic car types, along with a higher field installation cost. In addition, a higher OH is required (typically 16ft) along with a penthouse machine located over the hoistway.
The penthouse machine room can be eliminated by positioning the geared machine next to the side of the hoistway at one of the landings. This arrangement is referred to as a basement machine application, also requiring additional hoistway sheaves and machine beam support at the landing location of the machine.
For Corner posts and Overhead Traction designs, machine beam pockets are required in the hoistway walls.
The group one “Machine Room Less" is an engineered package design that utilizes an efficient gearless permanent magnet machine. This machine, with all the related traction components, is installed inside the hoistway eliminating the need for a machine room.
For building supported design machine beam pockets are required in the hoistway walls.
Delaware Elevator can provide and install permanent or rental industrial elevators, known as the rack and pinion. Rack and Pinion Elevators eliminate the need for wire rope sheaves, enclosed hoistways, machine rooms and hydraulic equipment. They are predominately known in the construction industry for hoisting both working personnel and equipment. Whether your needs are on a construction site, oil rig or a host of other platforms - we are here for you!
Freight elevators are typically designed to meet specific building/operation needs. The “standard" sizes are for general reference to aid planning. Delaware Elevator can easily custom design your freight elevator to your specific size requirements. Contact your Delaware Elevator representative to discuss your specific requirements.
This is the traditional elevator application that has been used for many years. The jack is located directly under the platform in the ground and is protected from the ground using a PVC liner.
Material cost for this package is less expensive than all other car types. The package is the easiest to install and is available in both low and high capacity applications. Heavy freight cars are typically always in-ground. The pit depth and overhead dimensions are typically always standard, not requiring any extended dimensions - even though the travel can be upwards to several landings.
Jack is located underground and oil contamination is remotely possible. The PVC liner provides protection between the cylinder and the actual soil. Geographic areas which experience seismic activity will present the greatest risk of oil contamination. The jack (single stage) must go down into the ground the same distance as the travel. Drilling a jack hole can be expensive depending upon ground conditions.
TWIN JACK HOLELESS CAR
This design uses (2) jacks, one on each side of the car, positioned between the platform and the hoistway wall. Single stage jacks are used for low travel, typically on 2 stop cars up to 14 ft. Two stage jacks are used for travel up to 28 to 30 feet (typically 3 to 4 stops).
The jacks are located above ground, thereby eliminating the need to drill a jack hole and eliminating the risk of oil contamination. This car type will also accommodate low and high capacity cars.
Travel is typically restricted to a 2 to 4 stop application. Depending upon the travel, an extended overhead may be required to fit the jacks into the hoistway elevation. The hoistway width requirement may also be a little greater than an in-ground car type, for high capacity applications.
Delaware Elevator designs and engineers each residential elevator project to meet the home owner's specific needs and expectations. Our residential elevators can be either hydraulic or total electric drive operation with mutable elevator cab configurations. Delaware Elevator offers fully custom residential elevator cab applications.
CAB FINISHES & ACCESSORIES
The flow of the process is such that material comes in one end of the building and out the other end. If you follow the movement of the material we cut, bend, weld, assemble, and package for shipping from West to East in our facility. Our standard entrance frames are made from 16ga material but can increase that to any thickness you need. Our standard doors are also 16ga to maintain the strength and rigidity the industry needs.
Opening Doors from beautiful to practical.
Doors can be side slide or center parting. Ceilings can be canopy, steel drop panels, suspended, or diffusers. Handrails can be wood, stainless steel or bronze. Walls can be laminate, enamel, glass, wood or even stone. Whatever you may need, IDEC can build.
Almost any type of material can be used to decorate an elevator cab interior. IDEC has worked with all types of materials. Colors, patterns and materials can be presented in brochures, drawings, and samples.
Once the elevator submittals are approved our team of highly skilled technicians use the latest machinery to perform virtually every type of fabrication. When the fabrication is completed all components are packaged in reinforced crating. Elevator cabs and interior that IDEC builds include energy-efficient lighting, coordinating panels and custom materials to suit any type of architectural design. Discuss custom styles with us to match a specific decor or select from standard designs and materials. Either way, IDEC will work with you to create just what you envision.
IDEC fabricated and manufactured elevator cabs and interiors include energy-efficient lighting, coordinating panels, and custom materials to suit any type of architectural design.
IDEC's high-end/custom options include a variety of styles, materials, colorways, and finishes to match your vision and bring your space to life.
Please reach out to Rob Tinus (firstname.lastname@example.org) for high-end and custom cab inquiries. Rob will work with you to create just what you envision in a timely manner, all while exceeding expectations.
Our FUSION™ line of Limited Use/Limited Access elevators is an excellent option for ADA compliancy. It's also great for applications with low occupancy like schools, training facilities, churches, multi-family housing units, libraries and more!
The need to increase ROI for building owners is real. Alliance Elevator Solutions knows every square foot counts, which is why we are the first non-proprietary elevator manufacturer to embrace this concept. AES is the industry leader in non-proprietary MRLs!
Over the years, AES has realized that sometimes, less is more. Alliance Engineers and Sales Professionals will customize your elevator modernization package to fit your budget, specification requirements, and code obligations. Elevators are expensive; AES can make them less expensive.
Elevators are integral to accessible, smooth, and efficient operations in many applications. For low-rise buildings, hydraulic elevators or gearless machine room-less (MRL) elevators are most common; this course compares the two in terms of sustainability and cost. Also presented are the history of the elevator, types of elevators suitable for installation in a range of buildings, the distinctions between proprietary and nonproprietary elevator systems, and recommendations on how to specify a nonproprietary system to maximize its long-term benefits.
