Our zealous efforts through rigorous research and development are all aimed at the safety of our users. Teknic endeavors to bring about 100% safety in all its products through stringent process and quality control tests.

In fact at Teknic, quality is something that is installed well before the elevator is.

Teknic PROTECT is the result of this incessant search for maximizing the safety of its users. The advantages of an imperforated door are manifold, wherein, foremost is the safety that it extends to children.

A child is now absolutely safe within or outside the confines of the lift car. When the lift is in motion, the risk of putting his or her hand through the door does not arise.

TIPS FOR THE TRAPPED

  • Don't panic. Take a few deep breaths, and remind yourself that there's plenty of oxygen in the car. Then do whatever makes you feel comfortable - hum your favorite tunes, do stretching exercises, read any book or magazine you may have with you.
  • Contact the outside world. Every elevator should have an alarm button and an intercom or phone. In large buildings, an onsite custodian should respond to your call within five minutes.
  • Sit down. Some people have fallen when the elevator suddenly restarted.
  • Don't worry about being in the dark. Lighting runs on a separate circuit. Even if it does go out, there is a backup system that would kick in for up to four hours.
  • Stay put. Never attempt to open the doors or crawl out of the opening on the roof of the car. The elevator could start moving again with fatal results. Wait until a qualified mechanic or rescue personnel comes to your aid.

ELEVATOR MYTHS AND TRUTHS

MYTH: Many people believe elevators are held up by only one rope that can break, leaving passengers trapped in a falling car.
TRUTH: Elevators are supported by multiple steel cables. Each cable alone can support a fully loaded car.

MYTH: Some people believe that an overcrowded elevator will fall.
TRUTH: This will not happen. An overloaded elevator will usually not move. The doors will stay open and a buzzer may ring until
enough people get off the elevator to reduce the weight.

MYTH: Some people believe they have been in an elevator where the elevator car fell several floors and then "caught itself".
TRUTH: This feeling is a mystery. Elevator experts believe people may think this happened because they 1) got on an elevator going in a different direction than expected, or 2) saw the elevator floor indicator lights flash by quickly which gave the visual impression of falling.

MYTH: Some people believe the hall doors will open when an elevator is not there.
TRUTH: The truth is that the elevator car controls whether the hall doors open. If the car is not at the landing, the hall doors can't open because their opening can only be triggered by the arriving car engaging an unlocking device after the elevator has stopped at the landing.

MYTH: Some people believe that if an elevator is stuck between floors that they are in danger of falling and should try to get out.
TRUTH: Absolutely not! Leaving the car on your own could result in injury. Elevator cars are designed as "safe rooms". The safest place is inside the car. Ring the alarm and wait for help. Leave the car only with the assistance of professional rescuers.

MYTH: Pushing the CALL button repeatedly will make the elevator appear faster.
TRUTH: The call is registered just once, movement is in response to the elevator controllers.

MYTH: Pushing the DOOR CLOSE button closes the doors faster.
TRUTH: It may cause the doors to close sooner, but not faster. However, if a buzzer sounds, the doors may close slower, it is important to get out of the doorway as quickly as possible.
