Elevators are very important facilities and equipment in the supporting construction of various properties, and they play an increasingly important role in the lives of owners and residents. In recent years, the frequent use of elevators and the increase of various problems in management have caused elevator accidents to occur frequently. This has also sounded the alarm for elevator manufacturers, elevator maintainers and elevator daily managers. So from those aspects should we pay attention to and prevent the occurrence of elevator accidents? MSDS elevator takes everyone to deeply analyze the elevator industry!
Where is the danger of elevator safety hidden?
As an indispensable means of transportation in high-rise buildings, elevators have attracted more and more attention to their equipment stability and safety. For high-rise buildings, the configuration and selection of elevators are directly related to whether the entire building structure is reasonably used. When selecting elevators in high-rise buildings, what aspects should be considered to meet the actual needs of high-rise buildings?
One is speed. High-rise buildings often reach 200 meters, 300 meters or more in height. Choosing high-speed elevators is conducive to quickly transporting people during certain peak hours. For example, a direct sightseeing elevator with a speed of 8 m/s can quickly send passengers to the 72nd floor (the actual floor 59). Basically, it takes more than 40 seconds to reach the desired floor, even if there are many visitors. It will delay passengers' time. For example, the fire elevator has a speed of 7 m/s, which can ensure that firefighters can reach any floor from the minus 4 floor within 2 minutes, which provides very favorable conditions for fire fighting. Passenger elevators generally take the elevator to reach the floor from the first floor, and it is more appropriate to control it within 5 minutes.
The second is the size and quantity of elevators. The size of the elevator car and the number of elevators need to be matched reasonably. Using elevators with large cars (that is, passenger elevators with large loads) can reduce the number of elevators and save construction area and elevator costs, but the average interval time increases and maintenance is inconvenient; while the number of elevators is small but the number of elevators Although many elevators occupy a lot of building area and the cost of elevators is high, the transportation capacity is greatly improved, the average interval time is shortened, and elevator maintenance will not affect the normal use of passengers. It is recommended to choose an elevator with a load capacity of 1 ton, and more elevators are better. In general office buildings, the number of elevators required for every 100 people is between 0.3 and 0.5, and 0.5 is better.
The third is that elevators for different purposes have different requirements. Passenger elevators require speed and quantity, but for freight elevators, we have found in our operations that the frequency of use of freight elevators far exceeds that of passenger elevators. Not only are they used by property managers during the day for cleaning, inspection, and garbage collection, etc. It is used for moving or transporting materials at night. The quality and management of freight elevators are also very important. For the choice of freight elevators, we must choose first-line brands on the market, with good reputation, durable and good quality freight elevators.
The fourth is after-sales service. It may only take one or two years to construct a building, but it takes decades to use the building, and the elevator has to be used for a long period of time. The elevator maintenance work has been closely related to the property management work since the building is delivered. Having an elevator maintenance unit that satisfies the owners will bring great benefits to the property management work.
How to prevent elevator safety hazards?
Elevator failure refers to the abnormality of the elevator mechanical parts or the components in the electrical control system, which causes the elevator to not work normally or seriously affects the riding comfort, and even causes personal injury or equipment accidents. So what common elevator failures should be paid attention to in the daily use of residential elevators (vertical elevators)?
In the daily use of residential elevators, the main causes of failures are:
1. Improper management of equipment by elevator users (such as residential property)
2. Improper use of passenger elevators
3. Inadequate maintenance by the maintenance unit
4. Aging of elevator parts
5. External reasons (such as power supply problems: unstable supply voltage or power outage in residential quarters)
