Elevators are typically put into motion by an electromechanical drive. Usually, it is positioned in a room at the top of the shaft - this is the classic elevator setup. The machine room can also be next to the shaft on the any floor. In an electromechanical elevator, the car can be lowered to the nearest landing in case of a blackout by using a UPS unit.
Simple to maintain and with reduced installation time, hydraulic elevators are a cost-effective alternative. The power unit of a hydraulic elevator can be positioned at a more distant location. This feature becomes a more evident advantage in case of installation in exiting buildings. The absence of counterweights is a way to save space in each floor. They too can be operated Machine-Room-Less (MRL) - in metal cabinet.
Type 1 - Big mirror completely covering the back side of the cabin;
Type 2 - Big mirror covering half the back side over the handrail;
Type 3 - Centred mirror, height same as the cabin's;
Type 4 - Centered mirror over the handrail;
Custom shapes of the mirror are also possible.
Shape - It usually is cyllindrical, but it can be rectangular (image 4).
Legs - They hold the rail to the wall. Usually they are cyllindrical too (images 1 and 2), but they can be rectangular (image 3 and 4).
Ends - Oval (image 1) or at 45° angle which is used as a design solution or as a way to connect two rails.
Top and lightning
"Spot" - Space-adjustable lights.
Indirect - With two luminescent tubes behind the top - The light goes either trough , or trough its transparent surface.
"Laser" - With tubes behind the top, which light goes trough margins between the ends of the top and the walls as well as from openings all overt its surface. The shape of the openings can differ and is selected based on the car's design.
"Star sky" - Multiple small lights all over the top's surface, which create the effect of night sky.
