The latest innovations give our elevators an even smoother ride with less noise and vibration, and minimum disturbance to building occupants. With improvements to the Eco Disc motor and centralised hoisting, our solutions are also more space- and energy-efficient.
Blu elevators have been made even better than before:
Renewed machinery and silent brakes
The new, highly reliable motor control system further improves ride comfort, with smooth acceleration and deceleration, and highly accurate car leveling.
The renewed braking system ensures a comfortable, safe, quiet ride, while also minimising noise transfer to the surrounding areas.
The new brake test functionality automatically checks brake condition daily. This helps to further improve safety and reliability.
Redesigned hoisting system for minimised vibration and noise
Centralised low friction hoisting cuts noise and vibration, improving comfort for passengers, and minimising disturbance to the surrounding areas.
Blu belt is poly urethane coated steel belts and these are reinforced with steel wire ropes. It has a very low bending radius and hence allows for a pulley diameter as small as 100 mm. Also these belts have smooth contact surface with the pulley, this increases the life of the belts as much as two times as compared to the conventional wire ropes. These belts are very slim and yet have tensile strength similar to the conventional belts. Also as there is no metal on metal contact there is very low friction and hence the ride quality is highly improved and the noise is reduced to minimum.
Improved car structure with even better noise isolation
The rigid structure and superb noise isolation of the renewed elevator car ensure a smooth, quiet ride.
New isolated guide shoes, constructed using low-noise sliding material, further help to reduce noise.
Roller Guide shoes are designed to provide superior riding comfort. As compared to the conventional sliding type guide shoe, roller guide shoes are fitted with high quality bearings and hence do not require lubrication of rail guides. For high speed elevators, the roller Guides are fitted with springs which reduces vibration. Roller guide shoes also helps in reducing the noise during travel.
To avoid any body from getting stuck in between the Elevator doors during the closing, every elevator with power operated doors is equipped with infra-red safety sensors; these safety sensors cover the entire door height of 2000mm. These safety sensors are equipped with cross infra-red beams so as to detect every little obstruction that comes in the way of a closing door. Power operated doors for premium elevators are equipped with 3D door sensors which can detect a person within proximity of the elevator and this enable the doors to stay open for that person to enter the elevator
Air conditioning unit may be fixed to provide better travel comfort for the passengers in the elevator. This unit keeps the elevator cabin cool and also eliminates the noise caused by fan in the elevator cabin.
All elevators tested for ride quality – a service unique to BLU
BLU provides a comprehensive ride quality testing service as standard for all its elevator installations.
Your elevator will not be handed over for use before it passes this test, which measures noise and vibration levels inside the car.
This thorough quality and reliability testing prior to handover further reduces the need for unplanned maintenance callouts
