Every centrifugal brake or pawl must be replaced at some point. For material hoists and warehouse elevators, this must be done every five years; for passenger/goods hoists,transport platforms and industrial elevators the period is four years. A centrifugal brake includes various parts that can wear or be affected by external influences. Replacing the centrifugal brake is beneficial to the operational safety but ultimately also ensures continuity on a project.
De Jong’s Liften have an exchange programme to arrange the replacement of the centrifugal brakes on your fleet of machines efficiently and cost-effectively. This keeps the chance of a hoist breakdown at a construction site to a minimum!
