Safety Inspection

Safety Inspection Discription

Modern elevators have two basic sets of safety components: electrical and mechanical.
The electrical components include the elevator controller, sensors and software systems. The elevator's controller serves as the brains of the system. Sensors monitor safety-related functions like car speed and position, and door-lock state or access panel position; and they send the data back to the controller.
Software systems provide independent assessment to validate redundant sensor systems.

The mechanical components include the elevator machine itself, the machine brake, the overspeed governor, the safety brakes (also known as the car safeties) and, finally, the buffers at the bottom of the hoistway.

Project Challenges

The suspension cables themselves are also essential components of the safety system. High-rise elevators today move up and down on many cables - far more than are needed to support a fully loaded car.

  • Electrical Safety Inspection
  • Mechanical Safety Inspection
  • Safety Code Compliance Inspection

Note: It is essential to consult local regulations and industry standards for specific safety requirements relevant to your location. Hiring a professional inspector or technician who specializes in elevator safety is highly recommended to conduct thorough inspections and ensure compliance with all safety regulations.
