What is included in our Elevator Maintenance Services?

Safe and professional elevator maintenance requires professional training, specific tools and expertise. The maintenance of an elevator can vary depending on the type of elevator and according to the model and year of manufacture. Typical elevator maintenance involves a number of steps including:

1. Inspection of the elevator system with visual inspection, safety and functional checks

Regular maintenance of an elevator system begins with a thorough inspection of all safety-relevant components. Important parts of the elevator system are examined for signs of wear in order to identify and correct possible problems at an early stage. We also measure the rope tension. Poor rope tension can lead to premature rope wear and also damage the traction sheave. This results in costly repairs. Uneven voltage is another area that can cause issues: it can lead to an increase in the energy consumption of the elevator, which also creates avoidable extra cost.

2. Lubrication work and lubricant

Lubricating moving parts is an indispensable elevator maintenance task. Proper lubrication helps reduce friction and therefore wear. By using suitable lubricants, friction is reduced and the sliding properties of moving components are optimized. This preventive measure aims to extend the lifespan of components, maintain the elevators' proper functioning and prevent costly repairs.

3. Adjustment and readjustment work

Regular adjustment and adjustment work must be carried out on various parts of an elevator. An example for this is adjusting the door parameters. In daily operations, elevator doors are one of the most common sources of issues. Other important parts that may need to be adjusted include the elevator brakes or the hook latch.

4. Checking and replacing engine/gear oil

The mechanical components of elevators require careful monitoring and, if required, refilling or replacing engine and gear oil.

5. Technical cleaning

It is important to remove dust and dirt from mechanical and lubricated components. This prevents a dust-oil mixture from building up. Dust built-up has an abrasive effect and can even become a fire hazard. We dispose of removed lubricants professionally.

6. Changing the traction sheave

The traction sheave converts the rotary movement of the motor into the linear movement of the elevator car. Prolonged use can cause wear to the grooves of the traction sheave, which in turn can damage the elevator rope. It is therefore important to inspect the traction sheaves regularly to prevent major repairs and to replace the traction sheave if necessary.

7. Maintenance and inspection of shaft ventilation components

At the upper end of the elevator shaft there is an opening that ensures proper ventilation and, in the event of a fire, also removes smoke from the shaft. This opening must be checked regularly.

8. Test equipment
(electronic testing system)

There are various electronic systems in an elevator. The correct functioning of these systems must be checked regularly. Examples of this include testing the emergency call system, electrical protective devices and the elevator control panel.

We have years of experience servicing elevators from various manufacturers. That's why we also offer expert maintenance for all types of elevators in any type of building.
