The elevator service industry is more than just installation and repairs; a large part of the elevator industry is keeping up with upgrades and modernization to make all elevators - whether already installed or yet to be installed - as safe as possible. A great deal of time and knowledge goes into ensuring that all your systems are up-to-date, not to mention a LOT of money as well. Balancing your budget to accommodate potential future upgrades can sometimes be a guessing game, so we’ve compiled a list of the top 4 upgrades you should leave room in your budget for…
It goes without saying that, like all systems, elevators are subject to normal wear and tear. No matter how busy the building it is in may be, all elevators will eventually need repairs done to maximize the unit’s efficiency and safety. Staying on top of elevator inspections and keeping those units in great condition should always be a high priority.
Despite having to implement new safety precautions in elevators for the past year now, there is always room for improvement and the possibility that these measures need to be enhanced. So, along with these current guidelines and routines, new technologies aimed at keeping everyone safe will need to be taken into consideration, such as antimicrobial button covers, UV light, air filtration systems, and touchless control operations.
Elevator technology advances everyday, and your systems should not be slacking when it comes to implementing new technologies as soon as possible - both to keep up with competitors and to keep your passengers safe. New features, equipment, tools, and technology are your company’s best route for success.
In the past few years new regulations, such as those set by the International Building Code (IBC) of 2018 and the ASME A17.1 Code of 2019, mandate the installation of video monitoring systems in new elevator cars. These video systems are to be implemented in all new elevator installations as well as major modifications to ensure the safety of any passengers in an emergency situation, communication systems need to be inclusive of those with disabilities.
