LEAKING LIFT PITS & ELEVATOR SHAFTS
AWS can carry out repairs to leaking lift shafts without any major disruption or dismantling of the lift mechanism, causing you less inconvenience, down time and cost. We can work outside of normal business hours to reduce any inconvenience, including working nights or weekends. Lift pits can leak for a variety of reasons but they are Usually a mixture of factors such as the existing waterproofing system being incorrectly applied or damaged, it was built in a time before any effective waterproofing system was able to have been installed, neighbouring construction has altered or redirected the local water table, a nearby water main has burst or drainage has blocked, and there has been large amounts of seasonal rain. Water can enter a lift pit though several areas including through concrete construction joints and if there are any other cracks or imperfections in the concrete walls or base, water will enter through these areas too. In traditional brick or blockwork lift pits ground water will enter through any weak points in the brick or blockwork, particularly the wall and floor joints or pointing. AWS has the technical expertise to find the source and repair your leaking elevator pit to a high standard and with minimal disruption.
