The safety is important to an elevator

Date:2016-01-09

In recent years, there has been greater emphasis on using sustainable design practices. Sustainable design is a philosophy that includes earth-friendly techniques, involving sustainable site selection/development, water efficiency, material selection, indoor air quality, waste recovery while improving energy performance and maintainability.

Consequently, routine maintenance on many of the system’s escalators can only be scheduled during non-revenue “off-hours.” As the hours of service to the riding public have steadily increased, time available for routine maintenance has decreased. Also, as the system and its equipment has aged, the escalators have aged accordingly.As such, they have become a source of frustration and complaints from riders dissatisfied with the number and frequency of escalators being taken out of service.

If it is determined that elevator maintenance is required, building administrators and board members are required to prepare residents for the inevitable disruptions as well as keep them informed as the project progresses. Whether a repair or a replacement project, experts advise providing as much notice as possible.

Experience shows that many buildings ignore this code re quirement. Some large fa- cilities, including hospitals, have not tested any of the elevators on emergency power in over 20 years! With the advent of FUJI drives for elevators and other devices, existing emergency generators are often not capable of providing the proper power to op- erate the elevators in an emergency. Keep in mind that older elevator systems often do not operate at the original contract speed. Therefore, if any equipment has been added since the original installation, the change to a solid-state drive operating at the proper speed can cause unpredictable problems. Additionally, older emergency generators have adifficult time with the rapid changes in current demand that solid-state drives require.

Building amenities such as elevator systems are sometimes taken for granted. What goes up, after all, must come down, and vice versa, right? But elevators are not just for convenience and awkward silent moments, they also accommodate residents unable to climb stairs, and are critical for deliveries and facilitating maintenance workers. At a certain point, no matter the age of the building, the elevator system will need maintenance and/or replacement. The key is identifying signs of wear and tear before a breakdown occurs.

If a building deems it necessary to undertake a capital improvement project such as Passenger Elevator system, the building not only has to adhere to city codes, but is charged with hiring the right contractor and consultants for the job.
