Hello everyone!

I am the same person who runs the elevator YouTube channel "xDragonFire961a" and I registered for an account for the following reasons:

  • Factual information was missing on certain pages
  • To (hopefully!) correct grammar mistakes.

I also like doors (very unusual, I know), and some other random crap.

My favorite pages

  • Most pages to do with fixtures from companies that were based in Australia (EPL Kone, Johns & Waygood/Johns Perry Lifts/Boral)
  • My profile page (*howls of amazement*)
  • The notable installations page for EPL Kone elevators (read all about it here). The first page I created, but most of its content is by IDLift3000.
  • The Emergency stop button page. This is the second page I created, but most of its original content it was born with was grammatically changed to be incorrect.

Favorite elevators (still in action)

  • The larger EPL Kone in Verona House, Canossa Private Hospital. Has 80's EPL Kone Square, and a blue EPL Kone display.
  • The Schindler roped hydraulic that serves Ground and Roof in Westfield Garden City.
  • The Schindler M-Series in David Jones in Westfield Carindale. The shiny COPs are nice, and the S-Series indicators are nice too. The only M-Series left in the shopping centre, maybe even Queensland.
  • The Dover elevator in Forest Lake Shopping Centre. Has the lanterns, but the call buttons have been modded with Dewhurst.
  • The elevator to the Promenade. This used to be a crappy Liftronic Unitronic, with non-working lanterns and indicators. In 2017, this elevator was modernised by Schindler into a newfangled 5500.
    • Its YouTube video is here, while its Elevator Database entry is here.
  • A *SUPER-RARE!!!!!* Orona elevator in Yum-Cha Cuisine (lol forgot how to spell it), Westfield Garden City.

​Favorite elevators (defunct/replaced/modded/ruined)

  • The Schindler roped hydraulic that served CP, LG and G in Westfield Garden City. Had elevator music too. Removed in the 2014-2015 renovations. Spiritual successor is the Schindler 5500 MRL that serves B2 (B), B1 (M/CP), 1 (LG), 2 (G), and R.
  • The Dover Oildraulic in Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre, Mt Ommaney. Modded with White/Blue Dewhurst US95. Probably still has the original equipment.

Favorite models of elevators

  • Schindler 5500 elevators. These are kinda rare in Queensland.
  • Kone MonoSpace 3000S elevators. Especially the ones with LED indicators.
  • Otis elevators with ​a voice beside the overrated American Gen2 voice!

Disliked elevators

  • The QE elevator in Bakita House, Canossa Private Hospital. Slow, generic, fixtures had to be replaced recently, while the EPL Kone elevators in Verona House are still going strong.
  • The Main Promenade Liftronic (modernised by Schindler to look like [and probably is] a 5500). It was a piece of crap, with generic levelling, controller issues, fail indicators (one of them had "**" on [without quotes], and non-working lanterns. As of 2017, it has now been modernised by Schindler, and all issues highlighted have been fixed.

Cameras

  • Samsung S7 Edge with 32GB of flash storage*** (decent camera)
  • iPhone 6 with 16GB of flash storage*** (this camera kind of sucks; the videos I have shot from it are in 720p, compared to the 1080p from the S7)
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+ with 64GB of flash storage (also a decent camera)
  • Nikon Coolpix W100** (yay, my own camera!)
  • Nikon Coolpix A900* (replaces W100)

*Defines a device in active use.

**Defines a device in infrequent use.

***Defines a device that has been retired from filming.

Future cameras (subject to change)

  • Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 (DSCRX100) (good camera, for other reasons see DSC-RX100III below)
  • Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100III (DSCRX100M3) (not too obvious, small, apparently has very good image quality; will get in place of the RX100 if possible)
  • Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100V (DSCRX100M5) (same as above, but has very good AF and video quality - will get in place of the RX100III if possible)

Elevator (lift) and Moving Walk (travellator)/Escalator specs explanation

On elevator videos, this spec sheet is used.

  • Brand: This is the manufacturer of the elevator. If modded, or maintained by a different company, this info will also be displayed here.
  • Model/Type: The model of the elevator (if identified)/The drive system of the elevator.
  • Capacity: The Safe Working Load (SWL) or the maximum capacity of the elevator, in kg (for capacities in kg.). Person count and conversion to lb. (for capacities in kg.) are also displayed here.
  • Fixtures: The fixture model the elevator is using, if identified.
  • Contract Number: The contract number, if identified (for videos in Australia)
  • Year installed: The year the elevator was installed, if identified, and original manufacturer if replaced.
  • Year modded/replaced: The year the elevator was modernised or replaced, if applicable.
  • Floors served: The number of floors served, and the floor numbers. Sometimes a word is used in place of letters.
  • Death-Trap Rating: The rating of the safety of the elevator. Rated on a scale from 0 thru 10, with lower numbers being better.

For moving walks/travellators and escalators, this system is used instead.

  • Brand: The manufacturer of the escalator/moving walk.
  • Year installed: The year the escalator/moving walk was installed, if identified, and the original manufacturer if replaced.
  • Year replaced: The year the escalator/moving walk was replaced, if applicable
  • Floors served: The floors served by all escalators/moving walks in the video.
  • Fail Rating: Because an escalator/moving walk is never a death trap, since you can get off them as said by georgef551: https://goo.gl/KMvHYG, the Death-Trap rating equivalent for escalators and moving walks is named the Fail Rating instead. This rates the quality of the escalators/moving walks in the video, on a scale from 0 thru 10, with lower numbers being better.
