Villa Elevator Terminology

The data to be verified when the elevator is installed in the home includes the pit depth, the top height, the net width of the well, the reserved door opening, the width of the left and right thresholds, the net height of the floor, the thickness of the floor, the number of floors, and the stop.

The relevant terms of the Villa Elevator are explained below. The elevator load of the villa can not exceed 400kg, and the common elevators have 630kg and 800kg. The elevator speed of the villa cannot exceed 0.4m/s. The top level is the vertical distance between the highest level of the elevator car floor to the most prominent member under the roof of the hoistway. Lifting height does not refer to the height of the floor. It refers to the stroke of the elevator. For example, if the distance between the first floor and the second floor is 3 meters, the lifting height is 3 meters instead of 6 meters. The lifting height does not include the height of the pit and the top floor. The height does not exceed 12m. The landing refers to the number of floors that the elevator passes and the number of stops. For example, the four-story and three-station means that there is a layer. The most common villa elevator is the third floor of the ground. The height of the door opening is generally 2m and 2.1m. When the height of the rough room is measured, the thickness of the finished surface is reduced. The specific size should be communicated with the designer in detail.

Pay attention to the concept of distinguishing the net height of the top layer, it is easy to be mistaken that the highest level above the house is the net height. The net height of the top layer refers to the distance from the top of the hoistway to the inside of the hoistway. The shortest bulge at the top of the hoistway is the distance from the top finish. All the dimensions involving the height are determined according to the size of the finished surface, that is, the elevation, so the elevator starts to enter the installation after the owner confirms the size of the finished surface.

The net size in the elevator is a very important issue. The net size in each direction refers to the minimum distance. If there is any protrusion in the well, the size of the protrusion must be described and fed back to the technician before it can be drawn. An accurate and effective elevator drawing, and the subsequent construction of the elevator is completely in accordance with this drawing, so this drawing is very important, must be accurate. Each villa elevator is a custom made product. All the dimensions are tightly stitched, designed, and the dimensions are interfering with each other. If there is an error, the elevator may not be installed.

How to determine the size of the elevator shaft when there is no hoistway on site?


First measure the size of the area reserved for the elevator, and then communicate with the owner to confirm the material structure used, whether it is steel structure, brick or aluminum alloy, and finally determine the inner dimensions of the shaft according to the size of the material.
