Straight platform type (flat-floor entry)

flat-floor entry means each elevator door is located at floor level, so you can go directly to the designated floor by taking the elevator. Straight platform type (flat-floor entry) enables entry from the front of a residential building. It requires the building has sufficient space in the front, and after the elevator is installed, the distance between the elevator door and the stairs meets relevant requirements for emergency fire exits.

Straight platform type (staggered-floor entry)

Staggered-floor entry is also called half-floor entry: that is, each elevator door is located at a transfer platform between two floors (at the half-floor level), and you need to go up or down a half-flight stairs to enter the room after getting out of the elevator.

Side platform type (flat-floor entry)

Flat-floor entry means that each elevator door is located at floor level, so you can go directly to the designated floor by taking the elevator. Side platform type (flat floor entry) is suitable for buildings with narrow space in the front, but sufficient space on the sides.

Patio platform type

Patio platform type means two buildings A and B share the same elevator. It is usually suitable for two buildings located side by side in the same direction, and the stairs or floor passages of both buildings are arranged symmetrically. It is a relatively common innovative method to build a corridor, respectively, on the front and rear sides of the elevator to enable access to the two buildings.

Pure reinforced concrete

shafts made of pure reinforced concrete can ensure increased robustness and reduced maintenance costs in the future.

Brick wall with concrete ring beam

shafts made of brick walls with concrete ring beam can ensure increased robustness and reduced maintenance costs in the future.

teel structure with tempered glass

shafts made of steel structures with tempered glass feature a shorter construction period and good lighting.

Steel structure with aluminum-plastic plate

shafts made of steel structures with aluminum-plastic plate feature a shorter construction period and less shaft weight.

No machine room type

a no machine room elevator requires no enclosed independent machine room to be setup in the building. Equipment in the machine room is designed in a compact size while maintaining original performance, and can be installed on the top or side of the elevator shaft. Advantages of no machine room elevator: space saving, lower construction costs, suitable for common existing buildings.

Small machine room type

a small machine room elevator needs to reserve a machine room (area is the same size as the shaft) on the top of the shaft, in which the power system, control system and electrical system of the elevator are installed. Advantages of small machine room elevator: reduced noise, higher load capacity, and easier routine inspection and maintenance.

Sightseeing type

the shaft and car of a sightseeing elevator are made of tempered glass, which not only allows passengers to see the scenery outside the car when taking the elevator, but also minimizes impacts on daylight caused by the shading of a building.
