Mandatory Door Lock Monitoring: Deadline Just Weeks Away!

Door Lock MonitorWith NYC DOB, Appendix K3, Rule 3.10.2, the New York City Department of Buildings has mandated that – by January 1, 2020 – “all automatic passenger and freight elevators must provide a system to monitor and prevent automatic operation with faulty door contact circuits.”

For reasons of safety and code compliance, it is imperative for this 01/01/20 deadline to be met, for the system to be installed, tested and inspected. If it is not installed and operational by this time, the DOB will be issuing fines and possibly shutting down your elevator(s).

In mid-2018, we began notifying our NYC customers of this mandate and deadline. We sent proposals individually tailored to each customer’s elevator equipment, followed by several email reminders and phone calls. Time is now of the essence – material and permit lead times are 10-12 weeks from receipt of signed proposals and required deposits.

D&D Can Help!

At this time we cannot guarantee that these will be installed by the deadline, but we will do all we can for our NYC customers. If you have not done so already, we urge you to please submit your signed proposal and deposit so that we may schedule your elevator(s). We welcome your calls with any questions you may have, (914) 347-4344.
