How Dazen Glass Elevator Work

The beauty of a panoramic view and the convenience of improved access and mobility enter a home with Glass Elevator. Provided by Nationwide Lifts, America’s Leader in Home Elevators, Vision systems fuse function and style. The versatile glass appearance compliments rather than overwhelms a space, while larger systems efficiently bring wheelchair accessibility to homes and commercial buildings. Compact designs no greater than 58 inches across allow for increased independence in even the most limited of places.
How They Work

Vision elevators operate with either pneumatic vacuum or cable systems. Air pressure lifts the cab for the former mechanism, which features turbines at the top of the tube to draw out air. This moves the cab upward, and for going down, the turbines shut off. Once a floor or level is reached, steel brakes secure the cab to the landing.

Cable elevators feature a motor and drum unit situated at the top of the shaft. Two cables connect drums to the cab. The drum winds to lift the cab and spools out to lower, while a variable frequency drive powers the motor to smoothly control the operating speed.
Practical Features

Beyond mechanisms and attention-grabbing appearances, Class elevators equip a home or commercial building with several practical features. Adding one to a structure provides increased mobility between floors, as well as wheelchair accessibility with larger systems. Attractive but not conspicuous, Vision glass elevators are compact and economical, as small as 30 inches in diameter but capable of lifting 350 to 830 pounds over two to five floors.
Minimal installation is an additional asset of our Class elevators. The costs of constructing a machine room, hoistway, and pit are not factored into a project. Instead, all systems simply attach to a balcony or pass through hole cut into the floor.
