Keeping you and your lift safe in heavy rain

With Queensland’s Storm Season just a couple of months away, now is the time to get in touch with your service provider to ensure your elevator is protected.

Whenever rain is predicted, the Mocon team prepares for a busy week ahead. The aftermath of a storm or a couple of days rain often includes a high level of breakdown callouts from our clients due to water leaking into the lift pit or power outages. To reduce chargeable callouts and keep you and your lift safe in rainy conditions see the following tips from our industry trained technicians:

  1. If heavy rain is predicted, Mocon recommends moving your lift car to the highest level to avoid water leaking into the lift.
  2. Avoid using the lift in stormy weather conditions as power outages can cause them to fault, which can lead to trapped passengers. Not only can this be stressful for the people caught in the lift, but it can also put further pressure on emergency services who are already in high demand during these times.
  3. Keep on top of regular servicing of your lift. This gives the technicians the chance to repair any small issues such as leaks before they become a problem.

No matter the season, Mocon will be able to assist you with any lift related inquiries. From installation, servicing and repair to emergency support and advice. Contact one of our friendly team members today!
