Use an elevator installation consultant: An elevator installation consultant will help advise you through the process of getting your elevator installed and can help to flag up any potential problems before they come into fruition and can help to advise the best elevator engineering and the best lifts consultants etc to use. By ensuring quality and good planning up front with an elevator installation consultant you can again prevent future problems and make the job of elevator preventive maintenance much easier.
Don’t exceed the weight limits: Whether you are riding in someone else’s elevator, or it is your own, for the safety of yourself and of others it is highly important to avoid exceeding the weight limits advised in an elevator. These are here for a purpose – precisely because that is the upper limit in terms of the amount of mechanical strain that the elevator can take without being a health risk. If you ignore these guidelines then you will risk damaging the elevator, and possibly causing an accident.
