How often do the brake pads need to be replaced?

Brake pads are a wear and tear part. So, like all wear and tear parts it will depend upon usage and the operator’s habits. On average, we recommend they be replaced once per year.
A complete overhaul of the brake assembly is recommended every second year; where pressure plates, post adjustors, and brake coils are replaced.

What safety device is right for my elevator? How often should it be replaced?

To determine the correct safety device for your elevator you need to consider the total car weight + lifting capacity and travel speed.
To illustrate, consider an elevator car which has a total weight of 6100lbs, a lifting capacity of 600lbs, and travels 208 ft/min.
So, 6100lbs + 6000lbs = 12,100lbs = 53.8kN
The vast majority of safety devices if using kilonewtons (kN) are measuring the braking force.
So, a safety device with a braking load of 60kN will be sufficient to stop the car weight + lifting capacity.
Travel speed is measured in ft/minute or Meters/second
So if travel speed is 208 ft/min, according to American National Standard A10.4-2016 and Canadian Code CSA Z185 : 1987 : R2016; the correct tripping speed of the safety device (overspeed governor) is 280ft/min (1.42 m/s)
Note: Every safety device has an expiry date. Depending on the manufacturer; average life expectancy varies from 3-5 years. ** Please note local codes, rules and regulations may apply.
