Interesting Elevator Innovations

In case you missed our recent post on Facebook, we linked out to this Wired article about how the elevator has evolved over the years into its modern form and function.

It should be noted that the elevator itself was basically a series of multiple inventions by different people over time. Elisha Otis made the modern passenger elevator possible with his invention of the safety brake just prior to the Civil War. After that, the idea of people accessing high floors without having to walk stairs became a reality that fueled the upward expansion of our modern cities.

Over the years, different people and companies have figured out ways to improve safety, comfort, and efficiency. Now, we're seeing modern computer technology merged with tried-and-true design principles of the past to create better elevator experiences for users. Elaborate tracking and integrated coordination between multiple elevators within the same building services all passengers quicker in an intelligent manner.

We've come a long way over the years. Here at Transitions we've witnessed a lot of changes in home and commercial elevators, and we've helped implement our own customizations, as well. When it comes to elevators in Cincinnati, Lexington, Louisville, Dayton, and all the wonderful towns along the way, you should rely on Transitions as your trusted partner and local expert. We think you'll be very glad you did!
