A modernization consists of taking an already existing elevator and upgrading certain components in order to improve the functionality, reliability, and safety of the equipment. The hoistway and the elevator car remain intact while the mechanical and electrical, and in some cases cosmetic, components are replaced with new and better equipment. Not all modernizations require everything to be completely replaced and quotes can be tailored to exactly what is needed for a specific unit.
K & M Elevator offers modernization work ranging from minor cosmetic changes of fixtures and cabs to an extensive replacement of components such as doors, door tracks, controllers, machines, and jacks, all at competitive prices.
