Due to the number of floors and high volumes of foot traffic, most urban and industrial buildings will have lifts. In some parts of the world, double-storied houses are quite common. And here, it was always thought, only a single flight of stairs is required to get from the ground floor kitchen to the top floor bedroom. Lifts in urban and industrial areas are used to transport both people and goods. Among the goods being transported will also be heavy machinery.
Such goods lifts would normally only be found on the industrial site, and such lifts are specially built to accommodate the weight and size of these goods, so uncommon from the traditional lift to get you from the lobby to the top floor in the office complex where you operate. The residential flight of stairs, usually not long, is ably supported by a staircase banister. This makes taking the stairs, in a relatively short space of time, safe.
But what if you were unable, completely unable, disabled in fact, to take the stairs? No matter because lifts are also being built and installed for the residential property. This enables wheelchair bound and physically challenged folks to get from the bottom up, and vice versa, with relative ease. Also, hillside lifts are being built for residential properties that lie on extremely steep and high slopes.
The location of such properties may not be as common, mainly due to its awkwardness and risk, but hillside country resorts will be taking advantage of such lifts in order to provide their guests with the comforts and convenience for which they paid. Speaking of risk, the hillside lifts act as a useful device in cases of emergencies where natural disasters have occurred.
