Traction Elevators

C.E. Electronics Acoustics Group – CQuiet Traction Elevator System 5 Point Noise Treatment provides a one stop solution for traction elevator system airborne and vibration noise reduction.

Generating both airborne and structural vibration noise, a traction systems many components; motor brake, gears, electronic control systems, etc., each contribute to the overall noise level intensity and its migration through the building structure.

Our CQuiet Control Products provide effective solutions for the reductions in both airborne and structure-borne sound migration.

Regardless of traction system type; geared, gear-less, MRL, the fundamental sound control principles remain the same.

Airborne sound must be contained within the operating environment; motor room or hoistway, while reducing the overall sound level intensity.

Structure-borne sound requires isolation of the source equipment and related components from the building structure. Equipment type and location may introduce factors that can limit the available treatment options.

Building design and construction may be a contributing factor to equipment noise disturbance. Penthouse traction systems generate the highest amount of disturbance complaints.

In what should be the quietest location of the building; penthouse residence of premium commercial office space, these space direct building elements with occupied spaces. The motor room floor is the shared ceiling of the residence, the executive board room is directly adjacent the elevator hoistway.

Side mount systems, basement overhead, MRL and other non-traditional overhead systems add additional complexity to an effective sound treatment. The most effective sound control treatment is one that is planned during the new construction, modernization’s, and interior build outs.
