For the transportation of goods, merchandise, or cars - for example in car garages, production halls, warehouses, or event halls - elevator systems with high load capacities are in demand. This also applies to elevator shafts that require backpack suspension due to a lack of space. Particularly in the hotel industry, in hospitals and care facilities, and high-end residential complexes, such elevator systems are planned with the greatest possible sound insulation in mind. Based on the TÜV-certified elevator insulation JAI, the PohlCon manufacturer JORDAHL has specifically designed two new types. They are specially designed for freight and backpack elevators and are suitable for new and existing installations in all types of buildings.
Two proven JORDAHL components are used in the new types: the JTA anchor channel and the JAI elevator insulation, a sandwich construction of insulation element, and steel inserts. The JAI is the decisive component for sound decoupling. It is fastened to the anchor rail in the shaft wall and connected to the guide rail of the elevator using an attachment from the respective elevator manufacture. When the JAI is installed correctly, the add-on part is completely insulated and the elevator is decoupled from the building. For freight and backpack elevators, JORDAHL has retained the principle of sandwich construction and adapted the design of its new types to the new applications. In this way, the solutions for freight and backpack elevators achieve an airborne sound reduction of up to 12 dB in rooms adjacent to the shaft.
JAI elevator insulation is space-saving, easy to install, and low-maintenance - even when retrofitted. In addition, the system can be individually adapted to almost any add-on part and any retaining bracket of the various elevator manufacturers. Another advantage is the comprehensive PohlCon service package: From consulting to delivery, you get everything from a single source. We help you to select the right JAI type. The space required between the guide rail of the elevator and the wall, and the forces acting on the guide rail are both considered. The same applies to the number of mounting points and mounting levels. The type of wall mounting and the wall attachment of the elevator system also play a role in selecting the optimum elevator insulation.
