Glass lift shafts

The modern and aesthetic part of the lifts is now, but also in the future, glass. One of the advantages is panoramic views and an unforgettable lift experience. To preserve and acknowledge the metal structure of an elevator, which is often a distinctive feature in architecture, glass is used both inside and outside.

Glass lift shafts design

The glass elevator dominates the building. It is designed with an emphasis on the appropriate use of space. By default, clear glass is used to clad elevator shafts. The possibility of their decoration is sandblasting or digital printing. For example, we create imitation stained glass. The design effect is achieved by inserting the printed film between the glass or by covering the glass with a colored film. It remains transparent, but with a color effect.

Glass appearance and properties

VSG laminated glass or ESG / VSG tempered laminated glass are used as standard. The thickness of the glass depends on the span of the structure, the type of anchorage and the specific requirements. Usually used 5.5. or 6.6. The board is secured with a sheet and a second glass. If the glass is damaged, there is no risk of falling from a height.

Method of attachment and anchoring

The glass is anchored to an existing wall or to a steel lift structure or to its own glass structure. Glass is self-supporting, but only to a certain height. Separately, the rear and front parts are attached, or the elevator shaft is formed as an entire peripheral frameless structure. Glasses are normally captured through stainless steel targets.
