In recent years the production of glass elevators has intensified, and increasingly innovative design solutions have been implemented, both for outdoor and indoor environments.
This type of elevator has become increasingly popular in residential buildings, not just commercial ones.
Glass elevators offer many advantages. First of all, their transparency makes them perfect to adapt to interior spaces designed with modern styles.
They offer a sense of openness and brightness and can be customized to meet specific needs that require a particular shape, size, or color.
They represent the ideal solution for disabled people who cannot use the stairs, for those suffering from claustrophobia, and for all those situations that prefer a panoramic lift, to give greater aesthetic and functional value to the structure in which it is inserted. Glass elevators can be perfectly placed in shopping galleries, spas, offices, museums, hotels, and even in multi-storey private homes.
An illustrious example is the glass elevator of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, which gives visitors a unique view of the city.
Types of glass lifts designed for the indoor environment
There are several models of indoor glass elevators. The most common one is made with glass walls and doors; Doors can be sliding, automatic, or folding. Glass elevators can be made in different shapes, such as rectangular, circular, or triangular.
The materials used in their design are different, especially in the finishes. The latter can be made of metal, wood, or even stone. There are also countless ways of customization, such as adding logos or images printed on the walls.
The frame of these lifts is generally made of stainless steel or painted steel, to guarantee maximum support and safety to the structure.
An example of a glass elevator for interiors is the one created by Maspero for the Rizzoli bookshop in Milan.
Characterized by a modern and versatile design, it connects the three floors of the bookcase, fitting perfectly into a prestigious context such as the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.
Another glass elevator was designed by Maspero, Luisa Spagnoli’s boutique, also in Milan. It allows you to have a 360-degree view of the store, and is also equipped with handrails and controls integrated into the cabin.
Glass elevators, safety considerations
Glass elevators must be made of high-quality materials to ensure the safety of users. For this, they must also be equipped with emergency systems and obstacle detection sensors.
At the same time glass elevators must be subject to regular checks to perform proper maintenance, carried out by authorized and qualified professionals, which helps to extend its life and ensure its long-term safety and efficiency.
The future of indoor glass elevators
To meet increasingly sophisticated needs, panoramic glass and steel elevators will be increasingly used, even in private and residential indoor spaces.
This expansion is largely due to their elegance, combined with excellent functionality, which covers both aesthetic and structural and practical needs.
They allow you to create a unique feeling of openness and space, as well as offering greater brightness in any context.
