4 Things You Must Know Before Complying Your Elevator With The 2020 (3.10.12) NYC Building Code
Choosing a the right product for code compliace is a big step which requires an appropriate research which includes multiple aspects.
Below are four main aspects to be considered when choosing a product to go with:
Verify the device you end up working with, indeed meets the highest safety standards. The FSSG meets the highest safety standards (UL Listed and SIL Rated) which are meant to make your elevator/s safer for passengers as well as technicians.
When considering a solution, both device and labor cost plays a role in order to let the elevator company offer competitive pricing. When calculating labor costs, it is necessary to verify the amount of work around overall wiring (to and from the shaft) as well as the in/around the controller. The FSSG does not require any modification in the controller and therefore has reduced labor costs.
Reduce Manufacturer Dependency
The FSSG is a standalone device compatible with any controller or other external system (e.g. 2027 code for single plunger brake) and therefore reducing the dependency on parts-manufacturers when complying to any future code requirements and allowing cost reduction in the long term.
The elevator market has many controller with various configurations, therefore training technicians on the solution might be a lengthy and quite costly. The FSSG is a one solution which fits all cases and therefore allows reducing training costs.
