Elevators and escalators make lives easier. They allow for fast transport from one part of a building to another. But they don’t only serve this practical purpose – they’ll impress both visitors and guests, and can even make properties more attractive. In fact, their overall impact on a property’s design can be massive...
Elevators Provide Complete Convenience
Elevators allow for quick traversal from one floor to another. This is especially useful in tall buildings like skyscrapers. In addition to this, there are elevators that can be used in construction sites for moving materials, in private residences to help those with mobility problems, and much more.
Tall building elevators are usually hydraulic and allow ample room for wheelchairs and similar items. They can normally carry a sizable number of people. However, some hydraulic elevators are of a smaller size and cannot support these items.
Construction site elevators are incredibly robust and feature various strong safety features that allow workers to move their materials quickly.
Elevators purposed for private homes are designed to help those with mobility issues. They help anyone move from place to place easily.
Escalators – The Efficient Way to Go Upstairs
Escalators can move many people quickly from one floor to another. This saves time and energy, is beneficial to those with disabilities, and makes sure that stairs never get crowded. They’re ideal for situations where having an elevator installed in a building isn’t practical. And like elevators, they’ll raise the value of a property.
There are three main types of escalator: cleat, step, and spiral. Each has its own particular look and attributes which should be considered when making a purchase.
Cleat-type escalators are the least expensive, and are so named because of the series of cleats on the edge of each step that gives a comb-like appearance. These cleats help prevent objects from getting caught in the gaps between steps.
Step-type escalators feature flat treads without cleats, and closely resemble standard stairs. They are the most widely used type of escalator on the market today. They offer seamless movement.
Spiral-type escalators are essentially step-type escalators which move people up or down in a circular motion. This design means there's no height or length limit – cleat and step escalators, on the other hand, can only be of a certain height and length.
Remote Control Systems Enable Easy Access
Garages and gates can both be accessed by remote control systems. The design of these systems are simple, and can be used by anyone. The number of benefits that can be gained from using this type of system include:
Convenience. Having an automated door allows you to open your garages without exiting your vehicle.
Security. Remote control doors are much harder to break into – the control itself is needed to access it.
Safety. These types of doors come with sensors and systems that detect any movement beneath them when they are being opened or closed. Not only does this prevent accidents, but it also ensures better security.
Value. Just having this kind of door installed on a property will see its value increased.
