Refreshing the Elevator Cab
June 13, 2008 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
It's not unusual for the owner of a Class A property to want to refresh the cab of an elevator. There can be all kinds of reasons, including the need to stay competitive with a neighboring property. There's one key detail. If an upgrade, even a cosmetic one, is planned of the cab interior, it can be important to weigh the elevator cab before and after the renovation, consultants say. If the weight of the cab increases by 5 percent or more, the elevator counterweight may need to be changed.
