Having elevators out of commission for any length of time is not just inconvenient, it’s unacceptable in many circumstances.
Water intrusion is one maintenance issue that, if not addressed properly, will continue to cause unnecessary interruptions for repairs.
After experiencing this problem with a number of elevator pits, where multiple applications of various sealants failed to remedy the problem, a condominium complex was seeking a permanent solution.
Following engineer’s recommendations, a grid system was established that outlined a solution which included drilled holes that were filled with polyurethane grout injections. This resulted in a full ‘stop seal’ along with anytime access for future repairs.
