ABSTRACT

The standard-type elevators have achieved sales figures of about 110,000 units in domestic market since they were introduced in 1961. They are characterized by improved performance and low cost by elaborating on their design and operational ease to conform with various applications in offices, hotels, residences, and hospitals of small- to medium-sized buildings. The recently marketed standard-type elevators were designed on the concepts of user-friendliness, beauty, practicality, and "environmental fitting" --their coordination to the surroundings.
