Lifts and Escalators in Built Environment

 

This event focus on the adoption of recent changes in lift technology in the Built Environment. The last few years have seen major steps in lift technology with equipment powered by linear magnet drives, freeing the lift car to move horizontally and vertically. The machine-room-less (MRL) lift continue to broaden its range of application and offers more and more opportunity to provide effective appropriate lifting capability in a space efficient manner.

Destination Control technology has now firmly established itself in the marketplace as the control system of choice in commercial workplaces where its benefits are typically of most value. Health and wellbeing are also becoming more important in our daily lives, and the role that lifts can play in encouraging us to be less sedentary. Smart building are emerging within which key systems talk and refine their behaviour and performance to suit users’ needs.
