PRELIMINARY CHECK AND PRE-INSTALLATION

WYLTOR Trade‘s electrical control and its components are a system based on CAN BUS technology, all of which is fully LOLER compliant. Each control and electrical system manufactured is checked and adjusted in its entirety before being shipped.

The entire electrical installation is thoroughly checked, as well as all electrical components required for each lift order. The setting procedure includes tuning the control with the motor for each order, “tune and phase of motor”.

The preliminary check and setting of the control that WYLTOR provides minimise the lift installation time and significantly reduce any occurrence of faults.

Having a lift installed requires many safety precautions to be carried out. While your lift installation will be carried out by a well trained and regulated engineer, the maintenance and safety checks will fall to you to organise following the installation.

Your lift will need to meet LOLER (lifting operations and lifting equipment regulations 1998) standards. Whilst LOLER’s supporting body the ACOP, are not governed by law, upholding these health and safety standards in the workplace is, and following LOLER’s recommendations is the best way to get your lift to excel at safety standards.

Lifts require regular maintenance and adhering to frequently updated health and safety standards. Before the first use, your lift will need a full thorough examination to make sure it is fit for use.
Following this, a yearly examination of your lift is good to make sure everything is still working safely, this makes sure that your lift is regularly updated and follows the latest guidance. Your lift should always be inspected by a competent person who has training in lift technology and is aware of the LOLER regulations and legislation.

If your lift is for people, then it must be checked frequently, which LOLER suggests should be every 6 months. This makes certain that the lift is safe enough for people to use, and does not endanger any lives at any point. Whilst goods lifts are only checked each year (or at intervals that suit the installation) regardless of your lift, they need to be stable, reliable and never show signs of wear or decreased performance.

Getting your lift checked is simple. You will need to find a technician who is fully qualified and is aware of these standards. The person who fitted your lift is always an option, and the cost for these inspections and maintenance is minimal, as well as crucially important. You need your workplace to be the safest it can be, and maintaining your lift is the best way to achieve this.
