Is there an elevator in your commercial building? If so, you will want to be ready before winter comes. This is because cold can affect the performance of your machine and sometimes even endanger passengers. Fuji Elevator Manufacturers  share how to keep the elevator running normally in winter, please follow the following suggestions.

1.Climate control

In order for the elevator to perform optimally, the hydraulic oil needs to be between 85 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit. In winter, cold sometimes lowers the oil temperature, resulting in elevator problems. However, this can be avoided by maintaining the climate control of the machine room or installing a tank heater to control the temperature of the hydraulic oil.

If for some reason you choose not to control the temperature of the elevator, you can park it on the floor with heat to keep the indoor temperature comfortable. Ask professionals if they can install a function that allows you to program the machine when it is not in use and return it to a specific floor.

2. Battery backup

In winter, snowstorms increase the risk of power failure. Therefore, you need to install a backup battery system so that your elevator can still work properly in the event of power failure. If you already have a backup, make sure that the backup is working properly and is fully charged.

3. Lubrication

Sometimes, the cold temperature will cause the guide rails in the elevator shaft to dry, which will cause friction every time the machine moves. If this happens, you may hear an abnormal noise from the shaft. Ask a professional to lubricate the rail for you.
