Bed Elevators

A bed elevator is a deeper version of passenger elevators, and can be used to carry beds or stretchers in addition to passengers. In hospitals that have separate bed and passenger elevators, the bed elevator is usually reserved for patients only.

Most bed elevators are available in capacities of 750 and 1000kg. Most bed elevators' speed are slightly slower than passenger elevators' speed, to make the patient feel comfortable when riding in the elevator.

Freight Elevators

Freight elevators are generally required to display a written notice in the car that the use by passengers is prohibited (though not necessarily illegal), though certain freight elevators allow dual use through the use of an inconspicuous riser.

Freight elevators are typically larger and capable of carrying heavier loads than a passenger elevator, generally from 2,300 to 4,500 kg. Freight elevators may have manually operated doors, and often have rugged interior finishes cab (which called enclosure[1]) to prevent damage while loading and unloading. Although hydraulic freight elevators exist, traction elevators are more energy efficient for the work of freight lifting. These elevators are specially constructed to withstand the rigors of heavy loads.


An escalator is a type of vertical transportation in the form of a moving staircase which carries people between floors of a building. It consists of a motor-driven chain of individually linked steps on a track which cycle on a pair of tracks which keep them horizontal.

Escalators are used around the world in places where elevators would be impractical. Principal areas of usage include department stores, shopping malls, airports, transit systems (railway/railroad stations), convention centers, hotels, arenas, stadiums and public buildings.

Escalators have the capacity to move large numbers of people. They can be placed in the same physical space as a staircase. They have no waiting interval (except during very heavy traffic). They can be used to guide people toward main exits or special exhibits. They may be weatherproofed for outdoor use. A nonfunctional escalator can function as a normal staircase, whereas many other methods of transport become useless when they break down or lose power.

Residential Elevators

A residential elevator is often permitted to be of lower cost and complexity than full commercial elevators. They may have unique design characteristics suited for home furnishings, such as hinged wooden shaft-access doors rather than the typical metal sliding doors of commercial elevators. Construction may be less robust than in commercial designs with shorter maintenance periods, but safety systems such as locks on shaft access doors, fall arrestors, and emergency phones must still be present in the event of malfunction.

Glass/ Scenic/ Observation/ Panoramic Elevators

The observation elevator puts the cab on the outside of the building. Glass-walled elevator cars allow passengers to view the cityscape or the building’s atrium as they travel. By eliminating the hoistways, the observation elevator also offers owners, architects and builders valuable space-saving advantages.

Passenger Elevators

Passenger elevators' capacity is related to the available floor space. Generally passenger elevators are available in capacities from 1,000 to 6,000 pounds (450–2,700 kg) in 500 lb (230 kg) increments.

Generally passenger elevators in buildings eight floors or less are hydraulic or traction, which can reach speeds up to 200 ft/min (1.0 m/s) hydraulic and up to 500 ft/min traction. In buildings up to ten floors, traction and gearless elevators are likely to have speeds up to 500 ft/min (2.5 m/s), and above ten floors speeds begin at 500 ft/min (2.5 m/s) up to 2000 ft/min (10 m/s).

Platform Elevators

Platform elevators are used for lift heavy goods. These Elevators made in heavy metal and activated by hydrolic power. For more details call our hotline.

Side Walk Elevators

A sidewalk elevator is a special type of freight elevator. Sidewalk elevators are used to move materials between a basement and a ground-level area, often the sidewalk just outside the building. They are controlled via an exterior switch and emerge from a metal trap door at ground level. Sidewalk elevator cars feature a uniquely shaped top that allows this door to open and close automatically.


RSD Electricals activity about elevators is focused on the development and production of a wide range of Elevator components. From doors to drives, from cars to safety gears up to complete elevator package, RSD compoments are extensively used by the best elevator brands worldwide.
