One of the key features of the MULTI System is the “exchanger”. This is a complex mechanism that rotates a section of rail behind the lift car to align it in the desired direction of travel, either horizontally or vertically (or diagonally). In addition, the cabs, which are constructed of high-strength steel, are designed to be as light as possible.
One of the main advantages of this system is that it enables architects to reduce the number of lift shafts in their designs and thus to optimise space for other uses. It is easy to imagine how the potential of this new lift system will transform the way buildings in particular, and urban planning in general, are designed and conceived. To see the complexities of the MULTI System, you can watch the following illustrative video:
