Something that many property managers or owners are not aware of is that different types and classes of elevators are recommended for buildings depending on the size and types of loads they will be carrying.
Smaller buildings with five floors or less usually require a hydraulic lift. Higher buildings require a machined, electric lift. In the elevator industry, these are called “passenger elevators”.
Passenger Elevators – Building Elevator
Passenger elevators are designed and rated to carry passengers. AmadaTECH Elevator designs passenger elevators in various speeds and sizes. The largest passenger elevators have a capacity of 2,500 kg, but most weigh between 800 kg and 1600 kg. Some are specifically designed for the placement of stretchers, such as hospital applications. They can be hydraulic or traction. They can also be machine roomless and are essentially a special type of electric elevator. Passenger elevator with and without machine room options

The most common example is the service elevator used by housekeeping in hotels. Service elevators are also called small freight elevators. It carries loads with a capacity of 500 kg. It is used in workplaces and factories.
Commercial Elevators and Residential Elevators
Residential elevators are designed for business centers and residences. If an elevator is installed serving more than one residence, it must be a commercial elevator. Residential elevators have a capacity of 320,400, 630, 800. Residential elevator is generally applied to machine room elevator
Machine Roomless Elevators
One of the latest innovations in the elevator industry is machine roomless elevators or MRL elevators. They use a small gearless machine and motor at the top of the elevator shaft. By eliminating the machine room that most elevators require, you can achieve greater efficiency in space planning. Due to their compact structure, machine roomless elevators are used in high-rise buildings. Machine roomless elevators are also classified as passenger or freight elevators.
Food transportation and service in residences, hotels, hospitals, villas, cafes and restaurants can be very practical. They can be set up in a small space and allow quick and easy transportation of meals, packages or other items between floors.
