Elevator inspection isn’t nearly the challenge it’s made out to be, as long as you work with an inspection company that has the means to evaluate and remedy any problems you may be confronting.
The key concern for all elevators is safety. It’s important to know that safety code requirements will vary from state to state and from building to building, and that the owner of the building where the elevator is located is responsible for having the system inspected.
Massachusetts also includes state-drafted regulations that take precedence over ANSI and IBC. For example, in almost all new multi-story buildings or completed new additions in Massachusetts, a stretcher-sized elevator is required. Although, in New Hampshire and Maine, only buildings with four or more stories above grade plane will require a stretcher-sized elevator. Always check with your local inspector to make sure you’re following code.
Just a few of the ADA’s other requirements to note include:
- Specific heights for handrails inside of the elevator cab.
- Two-way communicators that can be accessed and used by vision and hearing-impaired persons.
- Audible signals and verbal announcements that indicate the elevator cab’s direction.
Stanley Elevator is well stocked with all of the parts you will need to fully repair or improve your elevator to ensure that it not only is safe for those using it, but that it meets disability standards and requirements.
