Elevators are an essential accessory in multi-storey buildings and enable easy access to the different levels or floors. They move vertically up and down to carry people and goods from one floor to another with ease. Today, elevators have become common all over the world with the increasing number of mid- and high-rise buildings. Modern day elevators depend on sophisticated dispatching systems to reduce the wait time for elevator passengers. Both residential elevators and commercial elevators are now available from leading manufacturers. For safe and efficient use, manufacturers design highly advanced energy efficient elevators for high rise buildings. With improved controls, hardware and other systems that consume less energy, these traction elevators are very compact and efficient. Some of these even produce electricity that a facility can use.
