Elevate

Elevate™ is software used by designers world-wide to select the number, size and speed of elevators for all types of new buildings. Elevate™ can also be used to demonstrate that modernizing an existing elevator installation will improve service for passengers.

Elevate Express

Not everyone needs the full features of Elevate™.  Elevate™ Express is the basic version of Elevate, but is still more advanced than most other elevator traffic analysis software!

Elevate’s features include:

  • Analysis of elevator performance in offices, hotels, hospitals, shopping centres, residential buildings, car parks, mixed use buildings, airports, public buildings, sports and leisure complexes, schools and colleges.
  • This is achieved by techniques ranging from up peak round trip time calculations through to full dynamic simulation.
  • Dynamic simulation incorporating a graphical display of elevators responding to passenger calls. For your clients, this provides a convincing visual demonstration of your proposals.
  • An easy to use Windows interface. Enter basic information for a quick analysis or comprehensive data for a detailed model.
  • In addition to standard reports, transfer input data and results to Microsoft Excel at the click of a button. Excel reports also include extensive additional analysis results.
  • Supplied with a fully comprehensive help system and user support. 

Elevate Express’ features include:

  • Analyze up peak traffic using both round trip time calculations and full dynamic simulation. 
  • Intended mainly for analysis of office buildings, but may be used for benchmark calculations for other types of building.
  • Calculates result for a range of sizes and speeds in a single run so you can find the optimum solution quickly.
  • Easy to use Windows interface.
  • For high rise building, elevator groups with express zones may be analyzed.
  • Provides comprehensive printable reports with your company name in the title for presentation of your design to clients.
  • Option to upgrade to the full version of Elevate.
