Choosing The Right Elevator System for New Construction

Posted By : Aubrey Mead , on Sep, 2015


Whether new construction will be for a small building, a private home, or a large complex, it is important to choose the best elevator system to suit the needs and the budget of the developer or owner. A small elevator that is energy-efficient may work well for a home, church, or small bookstore with two or three floors. If the need is not great, that option will save money on the initial cost, and on operational costs in the future. Adding an elevator in small spaces takes up less room than a stair lift, and is more convenient for users.

A building with many floors, such as an office building, an apartment building, a hotel, or a casino, will need a high traffic elevator system that is designed to work constantly. Those systems have high power motors and hydraulic systems that can handle the demand without overheating. Developers may want to have several cabs in the configuration so if one or two need repairs, the others can remain operating. That will keep traffic disruption to a minimum at any given time. Heavy duty systems are perfect for freight elevators, hospitals, loading docks, and stores that need to get equipment and merchandise to upper levels. Experts at Elevator Technologies Inc. can help customers decide which system will be most appropriate for new construction.

Any system installed will need regular maintenance to ensure it is operating at maximum capabilities. Inspections and maintenance can also alert building owners or managers to any minor repairs that have to be completed. Fixing issues while minor will prevent a total shut down of the system, and save time and money. Elevator Technologies Inc. offers maintenance plans to suit the needs of the system. Plans cover doors, motors, shafts, hydraulics, and cabs. Customers can click here to get more information on plans available. In between maintenance appointments, there are certain things that should be reported to the company immediately as they may indicate a problem. Unexplained high energy use, unusual odors, slow response time, hesitation, or jerky motions warrant a close look at the elevator system. Elevators are major investments, so it makes sense to take proper care of them.
