With the development of the elevator industry, elevator types and brands in particular, so in the choice of elevator , there are more combinations of possibilities, no matter where you are to install the elevator, you need to determine the actual situation according to your need for the elevator exactly how much money?

Specifically you can refer to these options

**First of all,** the first one is the load you need. Generally speaking, the elevator load has a common load capacity: 450kg, 630kg, 800kg, 1000kg, 1250kg, 1600kg

The maximum number of passengers should be calculated by dividing the rated load (kg) by 75 (kg/person) and rounding down to the nearest integer; 6, 8, 11, 13, 16, 21 people.

**Second,** the choice of elevator speed

The “rated speed” and “plus or minus speed” of elevator

The speed of elevator is an element that directly affects the vertical transportation capacity.

When choosing the elevator speed: the elevator ride time; floor height; number of stops; rated number of passengers and group control scheduling (minimum possible stopping distance) and economic factors should be considered.

The rated speed V (m/s) is often selected in the design according to the height H (m) of the building, general empirical data: V=0.02H; or V≥H/60; common speed: V=1.00 (m/s)-6.00 (m/s)

The general requirement is that from the first floor to the highest floor, the one-way running time of the fire elevator does not exceed 60s, and the maximum interval between departures at the main floor can be 60s, 80s and 100s respectively for ordinary elevators in accordance with the requirements of service quality level.

The rate of change of acceleration and deceleration is an important factor affecting comfort, and its value should not be greater than 2.00m/s2.

The conveying capacity can meet the requirements of the 5-minute peak period for elevator ridership of 3%~7.5%, and the selection of elevator is considered reasonable.

The time interval for the elevator to reach the foyer should not be too long, and the general requirement should not exceed 2-3 minutes. Simple estimation method: the elevator should not exceed 45-60s from the bottom floor to the top floor directly.

Waiting time and elevator ride time should be as short as possible. The more acceptable limit is: the waiting time should not exceed 30s, and the riding time should not exceed 90s.

**Three storey** height

There is definitely a relationship between the height of the floor and the price of the elevator, generally there is a benchmark price for the height of the floor, for example, the household elevator can be priced from two floors, each additional floor is a price, the commercial elevator 7 floors down a price, increase a price.

When adding floor height, the elevator door device, rail cable, etc. actually adds up to several hundred dollars. So the floor height is also the key point of the elevator price.

**Four** again is your machine room want to choose with or without a machine room.

Although the elevator without a machine room than the elevator with a machine room, less a machine room, but in fact, the elevator without a machine room is more expensive than the elevator with a machine room, because no machine room than the elevator with a machine room traction machine and guide rail requirements are different, so the elevator without a machine room is actually more expensive than the one with a machine room, as for the one with a machine room and without a machine room is good, it is a matter of opinion, you can refer to the specific article “What is the difference between elevators without a machine room and elevators with a machine room”

**Five** Finally is the decoration, decoration standards are different, the price is not the same, this choice range is even larger.

To sum up, how much does a 4-story elevator cost, depending on the specifics of the project, simply giving you a price is actually irresponsible, if you want to know how much, we have online engineers who can help you calculate the price.
