Why is creating an elevator plan hard?
Planning requires an exorbitant amount of technical knowledge. Elevators are customised based on size, shape and design. There are many types of lifts; building lift, capsule lift, hydraulic elevator, pneumatic elevator, passenger lift, freight elevator, traction elevator/cable-driven, residential elevators, machine room-less elevator and hospital elevator. Different types of lifts are installed in different places. For example, a hospital lift needs enough space for lifting the stretchers whereas a dumbwaiter lift requires very less amount of space. Factories and multistorey buildings need wide and fast-moving elevators. Analysing the type of lift according to dimension, size and shape takes a negligible amount of time. Emperor lifts technicians and architectural designers give suggestions to our customers regarding the right place for installation.
