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.
