Safety involves everyone from technology and maintenance service providers to building owners and equipment users. We have global policies, processes, and guidelines in place to enable that our business activities, including subcontractor operations, are organized and conducted in a structured and globally harmonized way.

Everyone who uses an elevator needs to be conscious of their own behavior, for example making sure children’s hands are held when riding an escalator, and not blocking closing elevator doors.

Building owners and maintenance service providers are responsible for making sure equipment is professionally maintained and kept in good condition.

Safety

At EssKay, we are very serious about the safety aspect and there is no room for compromising on safety. We conduct various customer and employee safety training sessions on regular intervals to ensure that the industry standard safety measures are implemented and practiced.

“A major key to safety is adhering to regular Maintenance schedules.”

Maintenance

Elevator Maintenance Program

ESSKAY Elevators is committed to providing you with the utmost in personal service and professional care for your elevator systems. Regardless of the brand you own, please consider these eight (8) facts prior to making a decision on your elevator maintenance provider.

1. GREAT SERVICE DOES NOT HAVE TO

COST YOU A FORTUNE!

When it comes to elevator service, most property owners & managers cringe at the thought of paying tremendous costs for less-than quality services. Unfortunately, the fact is that in some cases you simply are not getting what you pay for.

 

At ESSKAY Elevators™ We only employ trained mechanics and pride ourselves on providing “TRUE” preventive maintenance services for a fraction of what most other companies charge. The savings of our cost-effective services helps your organization achieve its annual budgets and financial goals.

From our decades of experience, ESSKAY Elevators™ knows the time involved and technology requirements to properly maintain your elevator and escalator equipment. Our realistic pricing is based on this.

2. THE ONLY WAY TO GET TOP PERFORMANCE AND LONG LIFE IS TO DO “PREVENTIVE” MAINTENANCE.

This is a true statement. Any machinery enduring constant use needs constant care.  Regular inspection, adjustment, and lubrication are essential for elevator and escalator equipment. Elevator preventive maintenance keeps your equipment operating at peak performance, helps avoid major replacements, and prolongs the valuable life of the equipment. ESSKAY Elevators™ evaluates your systems and tailors a maintenance plan to provide cost-effective, reliable, and long-term maintenance for your equipment.

3. ELEVATORS/ESCALATORS ARE A VITAL PART OF EACH BUILDING’S OPERATION AND IMAGE.

ESSKAY Elevator™ understands that equipment cost is a significant part of each building’s total annual maintenance budget. We understand your elevators/escalators represent your building to the people who live or work there. We realize the way your elevators/escalators look, how smooth they run, how efficiently they operate and how often they’re out of service, can help or hurt your building’s reputation and its marketability. ESSKAY Elevator™ designs your maintenance plans to ensure optimum efficiency while protecting your investments and image.
