Elevator Unit

The Elevator Unit inspects every device, such as passenger and freight elevators, escalators, dumbwaiters, moving walks, ski lifts, sky lifts, and aerial trams. Each device is initially inspected for compliance with code, rules and laws adopted by the State of Tennessee to ensure they are installed properly. These devices are then inspected twice a year for the life of the device.
