Are you considering an upgrade to your elevators but are not sure where to begin? The decision making behind an elevator modernization project can be critical to building efficiency and tenant relationships.
The elevator controller is considered to be the “brains” of the elevator system and with great advances in technology, these controllers are able to learn building tendencies which will help transport tenants to their destinations more efficiently. One thing to keep in mind is that once an elevator controller is upgraded, the entire building will need to be updated to the local jurisdiction code. Capital Elevator Services, Inc. will work diligently with building personnel and take the appropriate steps to ensure a “turn-key” operation for building management or provide a detailed list of items necessary for change/upgrade to correlate with the elevator modernization being performed.
Typically, the first part of an elevator that will show its age is the door system. Every time the elevator runs both the car and hoistway doors cycle twice, and depending on the occupancy of a building, the wear and tear on this particular system can be significant. Capital Elevator Services, Inc. specializes in upgrading existing door equipment in order to add more useful life to your elevator system as a whole.
Elevator fixtures can give an older building the appearance of a first class and state of the art complex. Capital Elevator works side by side with many different vendors and can offer multiple styles, colors, and sizes for new hall buttons, car stations, position indicators, fire service panels, etc. Along with giving your building a great look, Capital Elevator Services, Inc. will ensure that all new fixtures comply with the Americans with Disability Act as well as with all current codes in your state and local jurisdictions.
Are your elevator interiors out of date or falling apart due to age and abuse?
