Elevator Doors for Comfortable and Efficient Elevators

Hans M Jappsen

Wednesday 1st March 1995

Comfortable elevators are quiet and smooth running elevators with short waiting times. The car should be spacious. The doors must run fast and quietly, and must be sufficiently wide. Comfortable elevators must be efficient. They must be able to manage all the occurring traffic in a building. And the user should not get the feeling that waiting or travel time is long. Efficient elevators need a sophisticated control unit, a specific speed, a good drive control system and, last but not least, fast moving doors. In the following, I intend to describe the importance of high tech doors for the efficiency of elevators.
