Fort Lauderdale Elevator Modernization
Fort Lauderdale elevator modernization can be the answer for buildings looking to comply with all the latest codes.
Fire codes have changed and there are also new requirements for fire alarm and elevator integration.
ADA requirements for handicapped individuals are also standardized for elevators.
Any one of these reasons would be instrumental in deciding “why?” to modernize your elevator.
When and why should you modernize?
Those are the two most common questions asked by building owners and managers. First, lets talk about the reasons to modernize …
Why should I choose Fort Lauderdale elevator modernization?
Most of the elevators in service today were installed 30 to 40 years ago. There are even quite a few elevators that are from the 60 ′ s that are still in service. 30 to 40 years of service out of an elevator is outstanding. Imagine making daily deliveries with a 30 or 40 year old automobile! These elevators have been around for a lot longer than most of the automobiles on the road today. They also take more abuse than the cars people drive everyday. It is not uncommon for an elevator in a relatively busy hotel to make over 300,000 trips in a year.
The answer to the question “Why?” is the age of the elevator.
When should I modernize?
There are many variables that go into the answer to this question.
Additional Information … Modern elevator equipment has evolved far beyond the relay logic and early microprocessor controls of the 70 ′ s and 80 ′ s. Today’s elevators are fast, smart, and reliable. A good comparison would be for those of you who owned a computer in the early 80 ′ s. Remember how slow it was compared to the computer you are using today. Elevators are incorporating more advanced technology as the years go by.
