Through continuous development in terms of design as well as production process and technology, Observation Lift ( also known as Glass Lift) does not only come with different elegant shapes and designs but also has the highest safety standard to ensure the safety of its passengers. It is basically similar to a Passenger Lift. The only difference is the construction of lift car and more complex installation process. The glasses used must be standardized and directly imported. It must also have special properties of being tolerant against vibrations and folds while the lift is moving. Observation Lift is another alternative which captures market interests.
Glasses for Observation Lift
In case of bare-type of installation, meaning that only tools are used for holding the glasses at the corners, tempered laminate glasses are recommended to increase strength. The glass thickness should be at least 16 mm, depending on the size of hoist way.
Another type of Observation Lift design is with aluminum framing. This type of design is not commonly used. However, its frames are strong enough to replace ordinary laminated glasses.
