16 May When Is It Time to Modernize Your Elevator?
Nothing lasts forever – not even your elevator. Years of wear-and-tear caused by regular use will eventually impact performance and efficiency. The average lifespan of an elevator is about 20 to 25 years, at which point many experts will recommend modernization services. Do you know when it is time to say goodbye to your building’s current equipment and hello to an upgrade? PEAK Elevator™, a top provider of commercial elevator services and residential elevator services, presents three signs it is time to modernize your elevator.
Your elevator equipment is more than 20 years old
If you are a building manager, office manager or corporate facilities manager, you know that elevator equipment is a hefty investment. With that, it is common to want to get the most out of your equipment for as long as possible. However, hanging onto your equipment long after it has passed its prime can do more harm than good. Beyond the inconvenience of increased wait times and delays, outdated elevator equipment can pose a safety hazard for occupants. Malfunctioning components, unreliable doors and other seemingly small issues can easily worsen to become a liability. Modernizing your elevator at the recommended 20- to 25-year mark is the best way to minimize that risk. Additionally, as elevator equipment ages, obsolescence can quickly become an issue as replacement parts and equipment are more difficult to obtain.
