Yes, you read that right. I assert we will need to miniaturize our products’ burden on buildings while having bigger experiences and faster delivery times which requires stronger materials.
Remember Ironman’s super-cool digital screens inside his ocean-side lair? Well today, thyssenkrupp announced that our service technicians will use HoloLens technology in its elevator service operations worldwide.
There is no getting around it. If your building is two stories or hundreds of feet, you are going to need an elevator. You have to meet the American Disabilities Act codes but what you don’t need is a complicated elevator system to travel just a few feet.
The term “smart city” can be open to interpretation. Here are a few prerequisites established a few years ago. A smart city uses technologies to be more intelligent and efficient when using resources.
thyssenkrupp is currently putting the finishing touches on the installation of 30 elevators and 2 escalators that will serve 52 floors at River Point, a new office tower located on a prime piece of property overlooking the Chicago River.
Last month we unveiled our completely redeveloped line of standard finish options for elevator cabs at the American Institutes of Architects (AIA) Convention in Denver, Colorado.
Over the last year we have been polling architects about their wish list when it comes to elevators and they said they were pretty frustrated with our industry’s standard elevator cab standard design options. So, we hired an interior designer to help us come up with some updated options. Now architects and interior designers have choices, in fact we now offer over 700,000 finish combinations to choose from. And our latest colors and patterns can be incorporated into any style - traditional, contemporary or trend-setting, at no additional cost.
We also have given our customer a good choice. ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas has made substantial efforts to develop and use environmentally conscious products in all elevator systems and components. The complete line of elevator interiors are free from added urea-formaldehyde, utilize powder coating as opposed to solvent-based paint, and are validated by a third party (UL Underwriters Laboratories) to be low emitting. ThyssenKrupp Elevator Americas is the only elevator company that can say that.
