Lifts

The efficiency of a building and its flexible usage are determined by both the internal transport infrastructure and its links to the outside. Using special simulation programmes we identify the economic-orientated arrangement, number, and design of your lifts for your specific conditions of use. Our goal in doing so is an efficient building.

Lifts in buildings with public access must be designed according to the size of the lift cars and, regarding operability,  in such a way that they can also be used by persons with varying disabilities.

Fireman's lifts in Europe must comply with EN 81‑72. As fire seems to be different in all countries and cities, the requirements for fireman's lifts also differ. We make sure that your fireman's lifts meet the requirements of the local fire authority.

Detailed and company-neutral planing, call for tenders and quality monitoring ensures the desired quality.

Traffic Analysis

Traffic analyses  are based on the overall number of passengers as well as the proportion of these passengers who have to be tranported in a certain time within the building.

Our traffic analysis determines the necessary number of lifts, the speed of the lifts, and the size of the lift cars. Our task as planning engineers is to ensure an optimal lift service with the least possible number of high-quality lifts.

Three important criteria for the design of passenger lifts are:

  • short waiting times
  • as few stops as possible until the target landing and
  • adequate room in the lift car so that direct contact between passengers is avoided

That is how we prepare a traffic analysis
