Problem

This industrial site consisted of a vacant bourbon barrel warehouse that had sat empty for over 15 years. The the bourbon barrel hauling elevator was not running.

Our Solution

The six-stop elevator was revamped. It now travels at 50 fpm and its rated capacity is 2,000 pounds. Traditional bourbon barrel elevators do not have the normal doors and gates that are required on normal freight elevators. Additionally, bourbon barrel elevators are not inspected by the state like regular elevators. We dramatically improved the safety at this site by retrofitting the elevator with gates and doors that comply with ASME A17.3 safety code for existing elevators.

This modernization project took only three months and Angel’s Envy is now on a maintenance contract with us.
