Different types of elevators

Elevators are an important part of designing a building – residential or commercial.

But which type of elevators should you pick? In this post you will learn about the two main types. In addition, you will learn about the different dimensions to achieve their intended transport objectives.

Passenger Elevator

A passenger elevator is any elevator intended for the transport of people through a building. These elevators can vary drastically in terms of size, speed and interior options depending on the use of the elevator.


Freight Elevator

A freight elevator is intended to move very heavy loads, such as cars or cargo in industrial buildings. These elevators are not intended for passenger transport and are designed to withstand tougher working conditions, which is why their interiors are focused on robust design, with heavy steel walls and floors, rather than more attractive interiors.
