What are the factors that affect the size of small elevators

Under normal circumstances, the size of small household elevators is about 1 square meter and can accommodate 2-3 people. However, if the building space is large, larger elevators can be installed. The maximum elevator size is generally between 2-3 square meters. In addition, the elevator size is generally related to many factors such as the drive system, installation location, and door opening method.
Factors affecting the size of small elevators for home use:
1. Drive system: Screw elevator, traction elevator, hydraulic elevator have different drive systems, which affect the elevator size. For example, screw elevators have very low installation requirements because they have no counterweight, no steel wire ropes, and no car walls. They can be installed directly on the ground without digging a pit, which not only does not damage the original building structure, but also improves space utilization. Rate.
2. Installation location: The installation location of the elevator will directly affect the size of the villa elevator. The installation in the shaft can be selected according to the size of the shaft. For the installation in the middle/side of the stairs, the elevator installation size should be determined by considering the size of the stairs. Outdoor installation is possible when conditions permit. The size can be determined according to the number of people carrying it.
3. Door opening methods: There are generally two door opening methods, namely automatic doors (side-opening doors/middle-split doors/folding doors) and hand-drawn doors. Different door-opening methods will also indirectly affect the installation dimensions of the elevator.
The above are the three common factors that affect the size of small household elevators. The size can be determined based on the above three points before installation. However, due to the different elevator drive modes used by different brand merchants, it is recommended to contact the brand merchant to arrange for a master on-site measurement to give precise installation dimensions.
