Abans Engineering Ltd., a member of the prestigious Abans Group of companies, is the sole agent in Sri Lanka for technologically-advanced Hyundai high-speed elevators. As high rise buildings and skyscrapers reach new heights, the need for high speed, technologically advanced elevators has become more demanding. Hyundai Elevators cater to the needs and aspirations of engineers and builders involved in the modern construction industry the world over. Hyundai Elevator Co. Ltd. a member of the Hyundai Group, is the first  elevator manufacturer in the world to receive a grade of A from Tüv, German Institute of Energy efficiency rating (VDI 4707 Part1) involves giving international certification after assessing an elevator’s operation time, energy consumption, and average operation distance. Hyundai’s ultra high speed elevator (The El) became the first in the world to receive the A class (the best-in-class system) in the ultra high speed elevator (600mpm) category. Hyundai Elevator Co. Ltd., one of the largest conglomerates in South Korea involved in various fields from manufacturing automobiles to heavy industry, took up the challenge to provide a total solution of high-tech elevators, escalators and moving walks for fast and optimal movements to meet modern developments in high rise construction. Hyundai Elevator Co. Ltd. was established in 1984 under technical license agreement with Westinghouse USA and received ISO 9001 certification in 1991. In 1993 the company established manufacturing facilities in Shanghai, China. By 1999, the company had launched Korea’s first machine-room less elevator. In 2009 Hyundai had completed the world’s tallest elevator test tower (205m) in Korea, and in 2010 installed the world’s fastest elevator (18 m/s) and double deck elevator (10 m/s). In 2012 the company developed a smart and remote controlled service system to become the most preferred elevator brand with over 130,000 elevators in operation. Hyundai Elevators has been the market leader in Korea since 2007 and is currently the best selling elevators in the Middle East. Hyundai Elevators develop eco-friendly elevators for customer satisfaction through a design and material development process that reduces environmental pollution.  Hyundai Elevator is continually developing low electricity-consuming products and reducing the amount of materials used in the production process in line with customers’  ‘well-being’ demands, thereby taking the lead in environment-friendly technologies. Hyundai Lowatt, next generation elevator inverter system, minimizes energy consumption by regenerating wasted kinetic energy with newly designed power circuit. It is applicable for low-medium speed gearless elevator LUXEN, machine room less elevator YZER, and geared elevator. The El has an energy recycling inverter, which reuses energy that is generated during operation, resulting in increased energy efficiency of up to 77.5%. There is no charging or braking resistance area, which minimises the emission of carbon. THE EL features leading green technology. The permanent magnet synchronous motor of Hyundai elevators has an ultra slim and lightweight design, resulting in reduced machine room construction costs. It also consumes 25% less energy compared to induction motors. Abans offer a wide range of Hyundai elevators for every requirement; passenger elevators (low/high speed), hospital bed elevators, observation elevators, machine room less (MRL) elevators, freight and car elevators, escalators and moving walkers to name a few. The elevators and tested and proved for economic installation space, low noise, low vibration, and energy saving with inverter technology, customer oriented design and maximum riding comfort.
