  • Publication number: 20220219945
    Abstract: The self-climbing elevator machine room comprises two decks positioned upon each other. Each deck comprises guide means supporting the deck movably on guide rails and locking means locking and unlocking the deck to the guide rails and/or to guide rail fixing means. Lifting means move the two decks along the guide rails in relation to each other. At least one power source provides power to the lifting means. The elevator machine room climbs stepwise along the guide rails by alternatingly locking and unlocking the lower deck and the upper deck to the guide rails and/or to the guide rail fixing means and thereafter raising the unlocked deck.

  • Publication number: 20210245997
    Abstract: The invention relates to a movable machine room comprising a support platform of a hoisting machine, the support platform comprising one or more releasable mounting mechanisms for releasably mounting the moveable machine room in a hoistway, and a hoisting machine mounted on the support platform; a working platform on top of the support platform, preferably forming a roof of the moveable machine room and/or comprising handrails; and at least one support structure supported by which the working platform rests on the support platform; and wherein each said support structure is selectively actuatable to expand in vertical direction for hoisting the working platform higher above the support platform taking reaction force from the support platform, or to contract in vertical direction for lowering the working platform back towards the support platform. The invention relates to an arrangement and a method implementing the movable machine room.

  • Patent number: 8360212
    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: 5904014
    Abstract: The trim includes a fireproof profiled element (11) of incombustible material, preferably steel, with an L-shaped cross section having a first limb (11a) fixed to a jamb (1, 2) or transom (3) of the door frame and a second limb (11b) located adjacent the corresponding side or face (4-6) of the door opening. In front of the fireproof element (11) is a profiled cover element (14) having a channel-shaped cross section which has a first limb (14a) which bears against the jamb (1, 2) or transom (3) of the door frame and a second limb (14b) force-fitted between the second limb (11b) of the fireproof element (11) and the associated face (4-6) of the door opening. Fixing devices (15) clamp the second limbs (14b) of the cover elements (14) against the associated faces (4-6) of the door opening.
