Elevator Pit Cleaning

Offered as part of annual maintenance or in support of repairs, elevator pit cleaning provides an added benefit of increasing the efficiency of sump pump drains.

As a complementary service to our clients, we offer an infrared survey of the pit condition.

Infrared Diagnostics

We offer this specialized thermography service of commercial-grade quality which ensures a precise diagnosis of the elevator pit condition.

Our clients can benefit from high-end equipment and years of expertise. Our team of professionals always provides a detailed inspection report which allows the proposed repairs to be substantiated.​

Waterproofing

Our specialized methods ensure efficient crack and cold joint repair. Our materials provide monolithic adhesion made possible thanks to Polyforce’s 1.8 Mpa adhesion. Since it is greater than concrete tensile strength of 1.2 Mpa, the patch becomes monolithic and will not delaminate.

We also apply polyurea-based membranes for lasting waterproofing. They cure instantly and are designed to cover large areas quickly, resulting in low elevator down time. ​

A Full Range of Services

From pit cleaning to waterproofing, including infared diagnostics and engineering services. 

 

WATERPROOFING

Floor / Wall Corner

The repair procedure involves a multi-layer coating:

adhesive, patching, primer, fiberglass, and basalt.

Floor / Wall Cracks

Cracks are routed with a saw, filled with adhesive, patched with cement, and waterproofed with primer.

 

​For patches of less than a 1/4 inch thick, polymer cement is used.

Piston Housing

Water accumulated around the piston is removed, the area is cleaned thoroughly, and the space is injected with liquid rubber material.

Block Walls

Specialized waterproofing materials are applied after a drainage system is installed, to ensure lasting results.

Precise Diagnosis

As a complementary service to our clients, we offer an infrared survey of the pit condition.

 

INFRARED TECH

Elevator Waterproofing Thermographers

Our highly experienced elevator waterproofing thermographers use modern, top-of-the-line technology in infrared scanning, to determine and engineer the best waterproofing applications.

 

​A thermal scan will clearly outline all areas of concern and their severity. Precise solutions will be presented to the client in an application engineering proposal.

Industry-leading PU waterproofing spray application, together with concrete adhesives,

permanently restores and waterproofs all common elevator pit surfaces.

Interpreting an Infrared Scan

Nothing hides from the watchful eye of an infrared camera!

 

As the images below show, darker areas - coupled with lower temperatures - show water accumulation.

 

The darker the color and the lower the temperature, the greater the water saturation problem.

Exceptional Materials

Our green technology - solvent-free, no VOCs, fully-recyclable materials - provides a lasting waterproofing solution

that prevents elevator pit flooding and protects sensitive elevator equipment.

Rated To Perform

Designed for hostile environments, our materials have been certified to withstand 25 years of harsh underground shaft conditions.

 

​Their properties are not lost after submersion in water or when applied to surfaces that undergo significant elongation and deformation.

Elevator Pit Cleaning – the First Step!

We offer elevator pit cleaning as part of your annual maintenance, or in support of work done in the pit. As a complementary service to our clients, we offer an infrared survey of the pit condition.

 

PIT CLEANING

Elevator Pit Cleaning

Whether done as part of regular maintenance or repairs, pit cleanin can help with pit diagnosis.

 

1. Can reveal issues with dampness, calcium accumulation, and rusted metal equipment.

2. Any of these issues point to a greater problem - a leaking elevator pit.

Elevator Damp Walls.jpg

Damp Walls

The darker wall surface at the bottom of the pit can be an indicator of two possible scenarios:​

1. There used to be flooding that reached that level (but then the water drained through the floor with the help of a sump pump).​

2. The wall got saturated with water. This would mean that the wall remains damp and can start leaking at any moment, beginning to ruin elevator equipment.

Calcium Around Cracks

Calcium deposits on elevator pit walls are an indication of a problem.

 

​1. Accumulation of this mineral is caused by a significant flow of water seeping from the outside.

 

2. This much waterflow will inevitably lead to elevator equipment damage which can cause a complete shutdown.

Rusted Metal.jpg

Rusted Metal

Rusted metal surfaces indicate that the pit had been flooded to that level.

 

1. This could mean that all wall surfaces might be saturated with water.

 

2. There is danger of flooding and further elevator equipment damage.
