While we do like to enjoy ourselves here at Sunset Metal Fab Inc., we realize that there is a time and place for it.
Occasionally we’re contracted by a Windsor, Ontario elevator company for custom metal fabrication, and that’s when put the fun aside and get serious.
Why? Because it’s about precision and safety.
A crane was hired to lift various elevator parts (3 machines, rope brakes, controllers, etc.) 20 storeys, and remove the old elevator equipment. Here the crane lifts a new elevator machine.
Here the old machine is being lifted from the floor on the the platform we created. The floor was about 18 inches below the doorway, so they needed a platform to get the machine out the door.
Here the new machine is being placed by the crane onto the metal platform.
Now the elevator machine is being moved off the platform, into place via the gantry I created as contracted by the elevator company. It can support 10,000 lbs, and the elevator machine weighed 2,700 lbs.
That’s when metal fabrication is serious. I’d like to thank Riverside Elevator for the opportunity to work with them.
Until next time,
