Neglecting elevator door equipment jeopardizes riding public safety and increases owner liability. Modernizing elevator door equipment is important in making an older elevator system more reliable, safe, code compliant, efficient, and provides a more marketable appearance. This is particularly true with door operators. Door operators undergo tremendous wear and tear in daily operation. Each time the elevator stops, the door operators are activated at least two times, more frequently if occupants manually hold the doors open. Some elevator maintenance companies report that nearly 75 percent of their service calls are for malfunctioning door operators.
