Elevators are literally on the rise — both in buildings and in the market. In fact, the elevator industry is forecast to experience a healthy growth of 6.01% CAGR from 2017 to 2023.
Since the first elevators came into use many years ago, they have advanced considerably, becoming more sophisticated both is safety and appearance. Now, the emerging trend of capsule elevators is drawing attention.
This type of elevator is already in high demand as property owners of shopping malls, office buildings, multi-level complexes, and even high-end residences are seeing the benefit of installing them on their property.
What’s all the fuss about? Let’s find out.
Most elevators are pretty boring. You step into a small metal box, punch a couple of buttons and wait until the doors open on your stop. If you’re in a tall skyscraper, you might get that exciting feeling in your stomach as you begin a quick descent. Other than that, riding in an elevator is a pretty ho-hum experience.
Capsule elevators take things to the next level. These elevators are installed on the outside of buildings and the glass-encased car offers riders a view of the surrounding area.
As you might imagine, the view from the heights of many skyscrapers is quite the stunning sight to behold.
Since the elevator is on display on the side of the building, a boring, ugly box would totally ruin the building’s aesthetic. To that end, the capsules are designed with sleek lines and using materials that add a handsome flair to the building. Many have bell-shaped roofs and some even have light-up marble floors,
The interior is typically plush, though simple, as the glass walls and doors are the main attraction. And believe us when we say that folks are impressed!
Obviously, the most captivating benefit of capsule elevators is the stunning view that they offer. For commercial buildings, this can be a big boon. Some people may even come to your building just to ride the elevator. Most of them will buy something while they’re there!
Though capsule elevators may look more fragile due to the glass-encased car, nothing could be further from the truth. The designs are calculated for optimum strength and offer high load-bearing capacity. Using only the finest materials, these elevators have a long operational life and you can count on them to last for decades.
Sounds pretty slick, doesn’t it? Installing capsule elevators in your building gives your home or business an upscale feel and completely transforms its facade. It’s certainly a more exciting way to get from one floor to the next!
