Ways to Avoid Costly Elevator Service Interruptions

Interruptions to your elevator service can wreak havoc on building functionality.  One of the most common causes of elevator downtime is directly attributable to the elevator doors.  An upgrade to your elevator’s car and hoistway door equipment can keep your building running smoothly and can limit overall elevator downtime by taking a proactive approach rather than reacting due to a failure, which in turn increases the length of the service interruption.

If you are looking for a place to start when making an elevator repair investment the elevator door is an excellent place to begin as over 80% of all service interruptions can be caused by failing elevator doors.  The reason for this is that your elevator doors cycle a lot more than any other component on the elevator.  This in turn results in the door equipment receiving more wear and tear than most of the other components on the elevator.  For every single trip that the elevator makes there are 4 cycles of the elevator door.

By taking the time to invest in an elevator door upgrade package you can prolong the lifespan of your elevators and improve the safety of the equipment.  At Kencor Elevator our goal is to keep your equipment running as smooth and efficiently as possible.  The best way to do this is by addressing problem areas that are most likely to cause service interruptions  before they happen.
