Elevator Installation Concerns Surface

Elevator Installation Concerns Surface

Last week, ABC of Alabama was made aware of the Alabama Elevator Board’s concerns regarding ventless elevator systems.

While those concerns were warranted, it was our understanding more than 40 projects had been approved to begin construction and received a temporary halt on installing those elevators. ABC of Alabama reached out to the Elevator Board, as well as the Department of Labor, to become more familiar with the concerns and how our association could play a role in having the industry more informed on the concerns and play a part in getting them resolved.

After several meetings, the Elevator Board did remove the moratorium for those already approved. Our association will continue to monitor the ventless elevator system and work with the Board on its concerns with this new trend in elevator installation construction.

If your company experiences any dealings with this issue, please contact ABC of Alabama staff so that we continue to be aware of all the moving parts of this issue.
