At the same time escalators are more obvious right in the center of the room and this can ‘beckon’ people to use them and enable them to glimpse the upstairs. And then on their way up or on their way down they will be toured through all of the items on display which is great marketing (this is also a great place to keep other items).One drawback of an elevator however is that you need one for each floor. This then means that if you have a multi-story building you will need to consult with your escalators consultant in order to find out the best way to make use of the space with your escalators. It will be less cost and space effective however exponentially with each extra floor.Some wheel chair users might also not be as keen on escalators as they are on elevators. This is particularly true of those using stairs.

An escalator is a long moving platform that works a bit like an automated treadmill on a slope. This allows you to stand on the escalator and to be gradually taken up to the next floor this way. At the same time because it is sloped it means that you can push a wheel chair or a push chair up it, and they will normally have grip along the tread so that these don’t roll down and cause a danger that way. Speak with your escalators consultants about making your escalators shopping trolley and push chair friendly. In other situations escalators can simply work as stairs that move, but these escalators provide less access for wheel chairs or trolleys. Again escalators consultants can help you to select the best option for you.This of course takes up a certain amount of space however in your building and this is one important consideration.

An elevator or escalator are very useful devices to have in any building that has multiple floors and particularly for commercial buildings or office blocks/blocks of flats. If you have an elevator in your building then this can ingratiate you to customers and visitors, make many processes more practical such as moving boxes or other heavy items, provide disabled access, and allow for quicker transitions between floors among other uses.The question is though whether to get elevators or escalators and discussing with elevator consultants or escalators consultants is the best way to determine which is best for you. Either has its own advantages and disadvantages and deciding is part of the process of elevator engineering. Here we will look at just a few of the differences and the advantages of each.

An elevator is a highly useful installation in any commercial property and allows for the easy change between floors. It is also far safer than many people think and accidents and problems very rarely go wrong. However in some unfortunate rare cases things do go wrong and this is where an elevator expert witness comes in.If there is an accident with an elevator and someone is injured then often an attempted court case might follow. This can be because the injured party is trying to sue the owner of the property, or it can be a legal enquiry. In either situation both parties can benefit from an elevator expert witness. They will be elevator engineers who understand the workings and the operation of the elevator. This then means that they can look at the accident and use forensic techniques to determine the cause of the accident and thus find blame.

Elevator modernization consultant engineer knows your requirement and consult installation that is the best. The most highly skilled elevator installers and repairers, called “adjusters,” specialize in fine-tuning all the equipment after installation. Adjusters make sure that an elevator is working according to specifications and is stopping correctly at each floor within a specified time. Once an elevator is operating properly, it must be maintained and serviced regularly to keep it in safe working condition. Elevator installers and repairers generally do preventive maintenance—such as oiling and greasing moving parts, replacing worn parts, testing equipment with meters and gauges, and adjusting equipment for optimal performance. They also troubleshoot and may be called to do emergency repairs.
A service crew usually handles major repairs. This may require the use of cutting torches or rigging equipmen. Service crews also do major modernization and alteration work, such as moving and replacing electrical motors, hydraulic pumps, and control panels.
Elevator installers and repairers usually specialize in installation, maintenance, or repair work. Maintenance and repair workers generally need greater knowledge of electricity and electronics than do installers, because a large part of maintenance and repair work is troubleshooting. Similarly, adjusters need a thorough knowledge of electricity, electronics, and computers to ensure that newly installed elevators operate properly.

Individualized Attention Client-specific programs enable customized maintenance plans for each building. An initial step in selecting elevators consulting services is to look at building function, population, and demand on its elevators.
Service providers should also evaluate existing equipment, noting the manufacturers and ages of the original equipment. Technicians should also be intimately familiar with the original elevator equipment and have access to spare parts, necessary software, wiring diagrams, and other documentation.
Service providers should also work with building management to consider the plans for the building. If the owner intends to sell the building in a year or two, then a basic plan is probably a better fit than a comprehensive plan. Older equipment might require building executives to develop an asset-management plan to extend service life until funds are available to pay for upgrades.
In addition, specifics on maintenance funding should be examined. Sometimes, the terms of a lease, particularly triple-net leases, require tenants to pay for repairs and upgrades. Reputable escalator consultant service providers will do more than just meet the contract’s technical requirements. They should be willing to make recommendations for upgrades and improvements to meet current or future standards, educating customers about the industry and the latest code revisions for safety.
