Many people are afraid of elevators: tight spaces, strange noises, and a fear of falling are some of the common reason for this phobia.
For those of you who are fearful, we have an interesting piece of trivia for you: elevators are the safest means of vertical transportation there is!
On hydraulic elevators for example the elevator can only “fall” as fast as oil can leak out of the system; this is a controlled decent and this speed is certainly nowhere close to terminal velocity even in the unlikely event of a failure. Every elevator in Georgia is held to a very stringent set of codes and are inspected by the state regularly. Genesis Elevator Company strives to not only meet, but exceed these code requirements every time.
Most of the noises heard while riding an elevator are due to routine maintenance needs such as lubrication or perhaps a small adjustment. More often than not any noises you may hear on an elevator are nothing that should cause riders to fear.
