Elevator Contingency Plan Essentials

June 3, 2020

Has your building been approved to reopen?

This message contains important information that could help limit expensive equipment repair or replacement…

Mandated building shutdowns and social distancing guidelines mean that elevators and escalators are likely sitting idle or hardly used. To avoid damage to equipment, VDA recommends a Pre-Activation Evaluation to ensure all elevator and escalator equipment is in safe and proper operational order.

A Pre-Activation Inspection includes a visual evaluation of all:
Door Equipment
Call Buttons
Shaft and Pit

Why: Servicing your vertical transportation equipment is crucial to keeping them running properly, safely and getting your building’s occupants moving efficiently.

Due to the unknown duration of time the equipment will be inactive, coupled with the possible lack of maintenance, an inspection will prevent any future repair discrepancies with your current Elevator Service Contractor.

Where is the Pre-Activation Evaluation Available? With a current workforce of more than 180 professionals in our offices spread across the United States, VDA is pleased to announce that services are available nation-wide!
