ThyssenKrupp Elevator has installed five TWINs and 37 conventional elevators in the Royal London Hospital. The TWIN system, supplied exclusively by ThyssenKrupp Elevator, will be adapted to specific hospital requirements. Larger TWIN cabs with a payload capacity of 2,500 kilograms will be capable of transporting up to 33 people or a bed including all necessary medical equipment and personnel.
The unique TWIN technology, with two cabs traveling independently in one shaft, enabled the planners of the Royal London project to incorporate additional elevators without the need for new shafts. This was necessary because conventional elevators could not cope with the expected passenger volumes. The use of TWINs frees up valuable space for patient care, while allowing the hospital to transport large numbers of visitors and hospital workers around the building efficiently and without any negative impact on travel times or comfort.
A destination selection control system will optimize elevator availability. With this system passengers select their destination on an LCD screen before entering the elevator. The system directs them to the most convenient cab for their journey.
