Elevator Mechanics Strike Means Elevator Shut Downs on the Rise

It is clear that the ongoing dispute between unionized elevator mechanics in Ontario and their employers will result in more elevator shut downs. See this link for a recent story from CBC Ottawa: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/story/2013/06/01/ottawa-elevator-strike-tssa-shut-downs-safety-province-escalator.html

What is not so clear is what people will do to provide for temporary solutions. For organizations with multiple elevators such as school districts, universities, and sports complexes, the Garaventa Super-Trac might be the best answer. This is a battery-powered portable stair climbing device, which can be used as an alternative accessibility option when elevators are not available.
