04 Feb Winter Is Here! How To Weatherproof Your Elevators
Here at Peak Elevator, we have the tools and expertise to guarantee that your elevators continue to operate in a safe, secure, and reliable manner. Our years in the business have taught us a lot about elevator maintenance and damage prevention. This includes the importance of preparing for the winter. Like most machines, commercial elevators are highly sensitive to changes in weather and temperature. Now that winter is here; it is time to ensure that your elevator is in prime condition to take on the colder months.
Control The Climate
As temperatures begin to drop, making sure that your elevator’s oil stays warm is critical. There is nothing worse than getting on an elevator first thing in the morning to be “woken up” by a cavitating elevator. This could mean the oil is cold and needs to heat up. Most riders have no clue about this and it can be scary. A common solution is having our team install a tank heater to keep your hydraulic oil at a warm temperature for those cold mornings. Especially if your unit is outside or in a parking structure.
Cold snaps and snowstorms can often result in power outages. Preparing for this is also essential for elevator safety. If you don’t already have a generator, it would be a wise investment. However, there are other effective options for contingency. PEAK Elevator is happy to answer any questions you have about options like an uninterruptible power supply or backup battery.
