Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance programs prolong the life of your elevator and keep it running safely and efficiently. We provide this service based on the frequency of use and the age of your elevator.

By initiating a preventative maintenance program, our technicians can keep your elevator operating reliably even in harsh industrial conditions.

We have several maintenance program options, including quarterly, bi-monthly, monthly, and bi-weekly. Our service professionals will recommend a maintenance plan that best fits your needs and budget and will schedule the maintenance visits at times when the elevator is not needed for critical use.

Our technicians travel in fully stocked trucks, so the parts and tools are readily available to make necessary repairs. We are able to work on any brand of elevator or type (rack and pinion, traction or hydraulic), with the appropriate parts handy.

Elevator Inspection

We are licensed in most states and can perform your state elevator inspections.

Elevator Drop Test

We offer thorough drop test services for rack and pinion, traction and hydraulic elevators for all manufacturers.

The performed test is based on the manufacturer’s guidelines, applicable codes 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 performed annually.

All tests are compliant with recommended guidelines. The test operates by having an elevator loaded to its rated capacity, then free-falling it. The test is run to make sure that the safety device of the elevator is working properly. Part of our maintenance program is to complete a full load drop test when any new safety device is installed.

Elevator Permits

We are happy to assist you with acquiring the proper elevator permits. Most states require elevator owners to secure a permit to install and operate an elevator. Our professional team has the experience to assist owners with reviewing and submitting drawings to obtain permits, as well as making sure the equipment meets all code and compliance requirements.

At ASG, our experience allows us to handle this process for both your rental and permanently installed rack and pinion elevators.
