Safety techniques

The elevator technology at the service of safety

Elevators safety

We combine refined elevator technique and leading components on the market for increased safety and efficiency.

Control panel. The control panels proposed for modernisation include VVVF speed control for asynchronous or Gearless engines, through an inverter, in order to obtain a sweet start and deceleration upon arrival, with a floor levelling precision unreachable by traditional systems. Modern panels with microprocessors replace the outdated electromechanical relay systems.

Emergency operation. On systems equipped with microprocessor-based control panel, or with old relay-based control panels, it is possible to apply a system that supervises the operation of the emergency cycle (brings the elevator back to the cabin floor in the event of mains failure, doors reopening - if automatic - or no reopening in case of hinged doors).

Traction winches. More compact winches than before thanks to better performing engines, more silent operation and "lifelong" lubrication.

Automatic doors. The actions proposed concern the mechanisation of formerly manual systems through the installation of automatic doors, both inside the cabin and in correspondence with the floors. Even with the expansion of the passage light.

Emergency cabin lamp. The installation of an emergency cabin lamp, where none exists, constitutes an "active" safety feature, since it allows users in the dark not to panic and feel lost, which is typical of the moments following the start of a blackout.

Phone assistance. The phone assistance system represents another "active" safety feature. In case the user remained locked in the cabin, he or she will be able, by simply pressing a button in the cabin, to talk to our Center and request emergency assistance. This is particularly recommended for old-generation systems.

Manual pump. The installation of a manual pump (used to unlock the parachute and the locking valve and equipped with a hand-operated lever) in hydraulic elevators that do not possess it, in accordance with EN 81, allows the cabin to be brought back to the floor in case of electrical, mechanical or hydraulic failure.
