ELSCO’s worldwide reputation was built first and foremost on our success in solving problems unique to elevator modernization. Older elevators pose a number of distinct challenges:
- Building age and settlement can wreak havoc on rail alignment, degrading the ride performance of the lift. The root cause fix for rail misalignment – hanging a mechanic in the hoistway for days or weeks on end to try to bang out or grind away at rails – is unreliable and tremendously costly, in terms of both time and expense.
- Repairs, component replacements over time, and cosmetic upgrades may mean that the entire elevator system is no longer functioning in harmony. Example: Cosmetic cabin upgrades or the replacement of a door motor might affect car balance. Car imbalance can degrade ride quality,
- Original equipment may no longer be available, making like-for-like component replacement impossible.
