Since 2009, the New York City Department of Buildings (DOB) has been making dramatic changes to the compliance laws regarding elevator systems throughout the five boroughs. These laws serve as a way to regulate code compliance for over 60,000 elevator devices and to ensure that they are safe to use. Elevator violations are currently the most frequently issued DOB violations.
Some of the revised laws include such issues as failure to conduct and file paperwork for mandated inspection and changes in the frequency in which devices are tested. In addition to these changes, substantial civil penalties for failure to comply can result in monetary damages in upwards of up to $5,000 per device. Building owners also run the risk of impacting the sale or refinancing of a property if open violations exist.
At Coast Electronics, our certified specialists are extensively versed in all changes in NYC compliance laws. We will help bring the elevators in your building up to code to avoid decreased property value and monetary penalties. Our technicians are experienced in maintaining your current system and installing new elevator communications technology designed to fit the growing needs of your property.
