Elevator & Escalator Maintenance for Building Managers, 2nd Edition
Author: ELEVATOR WORLD
Format: SOFT (Softcover)
Of all the equipment in a building, vertical transportation is the one and only mechanical/electrical system with which building occupants routinely have direct, physical contact. For a building to be a successful venture, in addition to providing a pleasant environment for occupants, its mechanical and electrical systems must provide safe and reliable service - particularly with respect to vertical transportation. While the primary responsibility for maintaining the vertical transportation system rests with the maintenance specialists and contractors, there are many aspects of which owners and managers must be aware. This manual has been developed to explore the responsibilities of building owners and managers, as well as maintenance providers, in an effort to provide guidance in establishing an adequate maintenance program that will be a long-term benefit to building occupants and the equipment that serves them. Also available as a PDF. Softcover | 108 Pages | 2 lbs.
