TAG Commercial Lifts: Where Perfection is a Tradition

Commercial lifts include elevators in office buildings, hospitals, shopping malls, hotel lobbies, universities, high rises, parking garages and other places where they have to continuously operate under high load conditions.

Commercial or passenger lifts demand special considerations in designing, manufacturing, installation and maintenance. They have to carry a much larger number of passengers as compared to residential lifts, which is why they are bigger in size, roughly at least 7 feet wide and 6 feet deep. They generally have a lifting capacity of at least 1500 kilograms. Each commercial elevator carries 20,000 people annually, on the average. Commercial lifts also perform a huge number of shuttles; traveling billions of miles in the vertical plane.

TAG: The Commercial Lift Pros

TAG has been making passenger lifts for commercial buildings for the last 150 years, that’s about as far back as when the world’s first passenger elevator was invented. Our experience in making cargo lifts extends back to over two centuries. TAG has historically led the improvements in commercial elevator technology and has always introduced quieter, more robust models with the most modern lift driving mechanisms. Today, our commercial elevators use the latest generation gearless drives and interwoven steel alloy traction cables with state of the art, noiseless, vibration free powerful DC motors. TAG commercial lifts come with a fail-proof mechanism to carry the passengers safely to the nearest floor in case of power failure.

TAG and ORONA: The Strategic Alliance

TAG Commercial Lifts: Safer than Anything

The technologies we use at TAG make commercial lifts the safest mode of conveyance in the world. Lifts are much safer than stairs and infinitely safer than cars, statistics reveal.

As a company built on two centuries of strenuous experience, TAG knows everything about modern day commercial lifts safety. TAG is the authorized Australian supplier of ORONA commercial lifts, a brand built on 40 years of spotless reputation in high rise lift industry. Our commercial lifts are driven by frictionless, soundless and sturdy DC motors, with adequate back up to safely take the passengers to the nearest floor in case of a power failure. TAG uses machine woven steel cable ropes that can lift more than 8 times the weight of the fully loaded car. The specifications of the steel cable, the wheel sheave and other components are dictated by factors such as dimensions, load, trip height and frequency. Being the experts, we suggest only the best combination of components for your project, so that your commercial lift runs with absolute safety for the longest time.

Cabin fall protection and lift speed control are very sensitive issues for any elevator that has to carry people in large numbers at high speeds. TAG Commercial lifts use hydraulic devices installed along the guide rails. These devices, called governors, sense the speed of the elevator car and regulate it. As a backup system, elevator brakes can stop the car in case it exceeds a certain speed limit or free falls, like in the unthinkable eventuality of a cable breakage.

Emergency lighting, alarm and stop buttons are some of the features that come with every commercial lift we supply.  People at TAG lifts listen to your specific requirements about safety and standards before sitting down to plan your project.

TAG lifts exceed Standards Australia and OSHA criteria for safety of passenger lifts in different buildings.  All installations and repairs are performed in strict adherence to The Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 and the AS-NZ 1470-1986 Section 2, which means that TAG guarantees safety at all times.

Lift Safety Tips

TAG commercial lifts are docile machines; however, even the safest equipment can be hazardous if mishandled. Here are a few things you can do to avoid accidents in and around commercial lifts.

  1. Weight limit of a lift is clearly displayed in the car. Exceeding the weight limit puts excessive burden on the wheel sheave and cable, and can cause them to vibrate, shriek or even fail over time.
  2. Avoid rushing through an opening or closing lift door. Lift doors have multiple sensors and a mechanism to prevent accidental door closing or opening. In case of an obstruction before a closing door, the mechanism automatically reopens the door. TAG lifts use only the most reliable and tested components; however, long term use may cause the fatigued mechanical parts to break causing the lift doors to jam.
  3. Never linger around a jammed or malfunctioning elevator. Standing in the doorway of a lift stuck a few feet below or above a floor is definitely not recommended.
  4. Don’t be impatient and press the ‘door close’ button each time the lift stops to get passengers; the door will close in its own time. The door close button is always disconnected and is only enabled by mechanics during emergencies and maintenance. But go ahead; try your luck.

Lastly, on a rather serious note, never be careless about the inspection and maintenance schedules of the lifts in your building. Even the most modern lifts need regular service and maintenance to keep operating perfectly. Forming a long term partnership with a well reputed commercial lift maintenance company will prolong the life and enhance the safety of the lifts in your building.
