The Problem
Every day, all across the globe someone is accidentally dropping something down an elevator shaft, in the space between the car [or cab] & the landing. This is then followed with panic, followed by its eventual retrieval in some cases for a fee, but always accompanied with a delayed service call.
The Solution

Key Points:

1) Cheap to produce (already exists in the market, but with modification)

2) One moving part

This is a simple and a very cost effective means to cover the gap. Using the spring version of an already existing product in the market (the extending & retracting characteristic of
a carpenters measuring tape), this device with its modification becomes a very economical fix. The 'Tape Container ' with its 'Free end' complex can be made into a single or two piece unit. This allows it to be unclipped & removed when worn out, with a new one to then be easily reinserted. This very inexpensive fix can save the end user (management companies, owners etc., and their tenants), money, and peace of mind by providing a much needed service that has yet to be fulfilled.

Elevator Gap Seal

  1. 1. Elevator Door-Gap Seal Elevator gap between the car and landing presents an environment where personal items may fall into the elevator shaft. Figure D (Tape Container) Figure G (Tape Containers Free end) The Problem 1) Every day, all across the globe someone is accidentally dropping something down an elevator shaft, in the space between the car [or cab] & the landing. This is then followed with panic, followed by its eventual retrieval in some cases for a fee, but always accompanied with a delayed service call. 2) Who benefits from solving this problem? As the elevator service companies derive part of their income from servicing these calls, this appears to not be in their interest. Management Companies who own both commercial and residential buildings can benefit their tenants by implementing this small fix. Here several things are accomplished, reduced costs with regard to expensive service calls, zero service call delays as well as creating peace of mind for their tenants and residents. The Solution Key Points: 1) Cheap to produce (already exists in the market, but with modification) 2) One moving part This is a simple and a very cost effective means to cover the gap. Using the spring version of an already existing product in the market (the extending & retracting characteristic of a carpenters measuring tape), this device with its modification becomes a very economical fix.
  2. 2. The ‘Tape Container’ with its ‘Free end’ complex can be made into a single or two piece unit. This allows it to be unclipped & removed when worn out, with a new one to then be easily reinserted. This very inexpensive fix can save the end user (management companies, owners etc., and their tenants), money, and peace of mind by providing a much needed service that has yet to be fulfilled. The Figure Description Fig A1 – G1 shows the elevator door at its almost closed position. For description purposes only the sliding door (B1 & 2) will be referred to as the male end. Fig A2 – G2 shows the elevator door at its almost open position. For description purposes only the sliding door (B1 & 2) will be again referred to as the male end. Fig B1 Male end, here the door is mostly closed. Fig B2 Male end, here the door is mostly open. Fig. C 1&2 (Shows the Tapes Free End attachment location, a devise on the doors male end to which the Tape Container Free end is attached) identifing the protrusion located on the side of the door towards the front, but below & behind the sensor strip on the male end to which the tapes ‘Free End’ is attached. Fig. D 1&2 (Tape Container) show’s the ‘Tape Container’ which is anchored below & behind the sensor strip, located on the female end. This is where the material is stored and used to ‘seal the gap,’ where it retracts into, & where it extends from. Fig. E 1&2 is meant to represent the approximate 1-2” wide gap separation (the space or distance that the car/or cab is separated away from the landing). Figures C (the anchoring device that the Tape Container Free end) & D (Tape Container) are meant to approach, but not physically abut the front wall that the car/cab rides along. Fig F1&2; the end wall to which the cars door slides towards as it closes, from here forward
  3. 3. known as the female end, and where the Tape Container is found. Fig. G 1&2 is meant to represent the material used to close the gap, be it a magnetized polymer, rubber or metal. The material may be able to be stored in a concave like form, only to open up slightly allowing it to seal the gap. Then with retraction it again is stored in its concave position. Whatever material is chosen to be used in sealing this gap, it should be considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Since numerous modifications and changes will readily occur (to all aspects of the invention described), by those skilled in the art, it is not desired to limit the invention to the exact construction and operation as shown and described, and, accordingly, all suitable modifications, materials and equivalents may be resorted to, falling within the scope of the invention. It should be clear to those skilled in the art that further embodiments may be made without departing from the scope of the present invention. In describing a preferred embodiment of the invention illustrated here, specific terminology was resorted to for the sake of clarity only. However, the invention is not intended to be limited to the specific terms so selected & described Here. It is to be understood that each specific term includes all technical equivalents which operate in a similar manner to accomplish a similar purpose. The foregoing description should be considered as illustrative only of the principles of the invention. Dr. Marc Blatstein ,
