Elevator Modernization & Upgrading

Why Modernize?

Repetitive repairs and constant shutdowns are just a few of the warning signs that your elevator is in desperate need of a modernization. Upgrading existing equipment is the best way to incorporate the newest advances in passenger safety, efficiency, and reliability. Modernization improves elevator comfort, performance, passenger safety, and esthetics — all good business decisions for your real estate investment.

Customized solutions for every situation

Three floors or forty, a rated speed of 150 or 550 fpm, every elevator system is unique. That’s why Atlantic Elevator Service takes the time to create customized upgrading solutions that best fit your equipment. No matter who the original manufacturer was, we have a wide range of capabilities to help you bring older, inefficient systems up to today’s elevator standards. We’re in business to help you save money and energy, improve service, and boost tenant satisfaction and safety.

Improving passenger safety

Safety is one of the most important things to consider when you decide to improve your system. Elevators not equipped with today’s technologies can be dangerous, with unexpected shutdowns, uneven floor landings, unreliable emergency phones, and doors that are unresponsive to passenger movement. Our modernization solutions can address all of these problems.

Improving efficiency and reliability

Inefficient elevator systems waste energy and money, and their long wait times and slow travel speeds cause constant tenant unrest. Atlantic Elevator Service can improve your elevator efficiency in a number of ways, from simply adjusting existing equipment to replacing the system’s “brains” with a new, non-proprietary microprocessor-based control system. Upgrading your system will result in reduced energy consumption, smoother and quieter rides, improved traveling speeds, shorter wait times, drastically reduced repair costs, and happier passengers.

A commitment to non-proprietary equipment

With non-proprietary equipment, building managers who become dissatisfied with their maintenance contractor cannot be held hostage by an installer. That’s why Atlantic Elevator Service insists on installing only non-proprietary elevator controls. This means there are no company-specific tools, devices, passwords, or software necessary to install and/or maintain the equipment. An elevator company that specifies non-proprietary equipment is displaying the ultimate confidence in their service.
