The following interview has been extracted from a diary in the forum of an award that recognized the entire professional career of the IMEM Lifts CEO.
Choosing the type and model of lift car and landing doors is an important decision when planning the installation of a new or a replacement lift system. When weighing up which particular model would best suit the job, four different factors should be taken into account.
The type of passenger lift needed in a busy shopping centre is very different from the one required to handle the vertical traffic in a residential tower block. Even if the dimensions and load capacities are exactly the same, the particular combination of features, machinery and equipment depends on the specific requirements of each project and results in very distinct solutions.
When property owners, consultants or lift installation companies are considering the fitting of a new lift in an existing building, doubts often arise about what lift size would be possible and what size would be best suited to the job. What lift size do I need to carry 6 passengers? And what about for eight passengers?. Is there enough space to actually install the lift system?
