  • Publication number: 20220388814
    Abstract: A method for modernizing an elevator system, includes using a first and second car for transporting passengers and/or goods between vertically displaced floors of a building, and thereafter removing the first elevator car from use for transporting passengers and/or goods between vertically displaced floors, and thereafter installing a construction time elevator into the lower end of the first hoistway, the traveling zone of the car of the construction time elevator covering only partially the height of the first hoistway; and thereafter using the car of the construction time elevator and the second car simultaneously for transporting passengers and/or goods between vertically displaced floors of the building, during which using the method includes performing construction work in the first hoistway above the traveling zone of the car of the construction time elevator; and thereafter changing the traveling zone of the car of the construction time elevator to extend higher in the hoistway, and thereafter using t

  • Patent number: 10766744
    Abstract: An elevator arrangement, in particular a construction time elevator arrangement, includes a hoistway; an elevator car mounted in the hoistway; and a vertically movable support structure in the hoistway for supporting the elevator car, the movable support structure being mounted above the elevator car in the hoistway. The vertically movable support structure includes a first working platform, having a planar working area, and a protective cover above the first working platform for protecting elevator components and/or people below it from falling objects. The protective cover covers most of the cross section of the hoistway.

  • Publication number: 20110162915
    Abstract: A method and an arrangement are provided for fixing the compensating ropes of an elevator to an elevator car or to a counterweight, which elevator includes at least a hoisting machine and hoisting roping, suspended by which the elevator car as well as the counterweight are arranged to travel, and between which elevator car and counterweight compensating ropes are fixed such that the first ends of the compensating ropes are fixed to the counterweight, from where the compensating ropes are led downwards to pass below a compensating pulley, after which upwards to the elevator car, where the second ends of the compensating ropes are fixed by wedge housings in connection with the elevator car. When fixing the ends of the compensating ropes in connection with the elevator car or the counterweight, the wedge housings are turned into an inclined attitude before disposing the ends of the compensating ropes in the wedge housings.

  • Patent number: 6494001
    Abstract: Procedure for the installation of a landing door, in which a threshold module is mounted on the lower edge of a door opening of the elevator shaft, whereupon side posts are mounted at the edges of the opening and a lintel connecting the side posts as well as an overhead supporter for the suspension of the door panels are mounted in the upper part of the opening. The equally long side posts are mounted on top of the threshold module while the side posts are connected to each other by the lintel mounted on top of them. The overhead supporter is lifted up onto the lintel and fixed to the wall by its ends.
