24-Hour Emergency Elevator Service & Repair

American Service Group understands the importance of having your elevator working properly 24/7. An elevator that is not operating effectively can cause undue downtime and unsafe conditions for your employees. That is why ASG provides 24-hour elevator service and repair. It is our goal to have you up and running as quickly as possible in the event your elevator is down.

Preventative Maintenance

American Service Group provides preventative maintenance programs to help prolong the life of your elevator. We provide PM service based on the frequency of use and the age your machine. By initiating a preventative maintenance program, our technicians can keep your elevator operating efficiently even though it is in a harsh industrial environment. We have various maintenance programs, including quarterly, bi-monthly, monthly, and bi-weekly. Our elevator professional will recommend a maintenance program that best fits your needs and will schedule the maintenance when the elevator is not needed for critical use. Our technicians carry most parts on their trucks, so they are readily available to make necessary repairs. ASG technicians are available to work on any brand of elevator or type.

Elevator Drop Test

American Service Group offers Drop Test Services of rack and pinion, traction and hydraulic elevators. We service all manufacturers. The test is performed based on manufacturer's guidelines, applicable code and the Authority having Jurisdiction (AHJ). As mandated by A10.4 Safety Requirements, we test construction hoists with a no load drop test every 3 months and a full load drop test annually. Permanent rack and pinion elevators should have a full load drop test yearly. All tests are compliant with recommended manufacturer's guidelines. The test is conducted by having an elevator loaded to its rated capacity, then free-falling it. The test is ran to make sure that the safety device of the elevator is working properly. Part of ASG’s maintenance program is to complete a full load drop test when any new safety device is installed.

Elevator Permits

When it comes to elevator permits, ASG is available to assist you in this process. Most states require elevator owners to secure a permit to install and operate an elevator. Our elevator professionals have the experience to assist owners with reviewing and submitting drawings to obtain permits, as well as making sure the equipment is compliant and accepted. Whether you have a permanent or temporary rack and pinion elevator, ASG can assist with any permits that might be required. Submittal of drawings, review of drawings, code compliance and acceptance of the specific equipment are a normal part of the process. ASG Elevators is experienced to handle this process for both your rental and permanently installed rack and pinion elevators.

If you have any questions as to the need to permit your temporary hoist or permanent elevator, ASG Elevators can assist you with the process.
