Benefits of a Glass Lift in Your Business

Contents

[edit] Introduction

Lifts can be an essential part of the design of any business, especially when there are numerous floors with visitors and clients regularly visiting and needing to change levels. The installation of a contemporary lift can not only make life easier, it can add a touch of style and an executive feel.

In particular, a glass lift can bring benefits to a business, creating a design aesthetic for hotels, multi storey office blocks and other establishments. But how can a glass lift really make a difference to your business?

[edit] Mood booster

Attracting daylight into a building can be a big mood booster, with much research backing this up. It has been shown that more daylight can affect our mental and physical health as well as putting occupants in a great mood, which can make for an encouraging start to the day.

Sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference, allowing your guests to step into a bright and airy glass lift rather than the darker, metallic ones could be the boost to securing a happy visitor or staff member.

[edit] Be green and save money

A lift which doesn't need artificial lighting naturally uses less electricity, and while any lift needs power to operate, it is not necessary to keep the lights switched on in a glass lift all day. Not only does the amount of light coming into the lift improve occupant's mood whilst providing an easy way to get from floor to floor, it can also save businesses money in the long run and create a better carbon footprint overall.

Some businesses have suggested they can shave 20% off lighting and ventilation costs in a typical commercial company by using more glass.

[edit] Aesthetic and design

Another upside is the design of the glass lift. They can create a design style, with a minimalistic and sleek appearance. Whether a more traditional styled building or a modern property, a glass lift can fit in anywhere, as its transparent material blends in, becoming part of any architecture.

Not only is the cabin not intrusive, but with many glass lifts you can see the mechanism of the lift, which offers more of an intriguing and exciting journey for the occupant.

A glass lift can also be a thing of luxury, giving an exclusive VIP feel.

[edit] Transparent location

Certain locations call for the journey in a lift to be more than its functional aim, especially when a building reaches high up, beyond skyscrapers. It’s not just the lift which deserves the centre of attention from occupants, but also the views. Whether in the middle of the countryside or within the cityscape, a glass lift makes for the perfect scene viewer, providing customers, clients, visitors, and staff a place to not only make a simple journey but to marvel in the stunning surroundings.

[edit] Customer experience

Within business, customer experience is everything, from the moment they step in the building to the moment they sit in reception, with the journey to another floor being no exception. A glass lift supplies customers with a true experience, boosting their mood and setting the standard for the rest of their stay.
