SERVICES INSPECTIONS

Annual crane inspections are a legal requirement, but they're also a chance to focus on the life and reliability of your equipment to protect your investment and prevent downtime. 

Not every crane inspection is created equal.

Annual inspections are a legal requirement under Ontario's Health and Safety Act, but for crane equipment that's critical to your production and profitability, the importance of an inspection goes beyond simple compliance.

We've set up our crane inspection programs to meet the needs of our diverse customers. For those with light-duty, periodic use material handling equipment, annual visual inspections are the best option. Once you increase the duty cycle and capacity of your crane and its importance to your business, it's best to increase the level of inspection. For the most critical cranes, it's recommended to include inspections in a custom preventive maintenance program.

If you have a crane, chances are you have an overhead door, too. A Zelus door inspection offers the same experienced, safety-minded approach as a Zelus crane inspection, and can probably be completed at the same time as we're inspecting your crane. Arrange for a door inspection by contacting us.

  • EXPERIENCED TECHNICIANS

    Zelus inspectors are our most senior technicians. They receive regular training and we keep all training records on file. 

  • CUSTOMIZED INSPECTIONS

    Every field is filled out on the report because it is customized to your equipment and application, and we include photos.

  • ELECTRONIC REPORTS

    We send your report as a PDF, and keep a copy ourselves. No hand written inspection forms that are grease and coffee stained.

  • QUICK TURNAROUND

    Schedule your inspection in advance. Your report will usually be ready in 1 to 2 business days.

  • TRACKABLE

    Easily access information in your report and from the labels we affix to your equipment. We keep a complete component history, too.

  • FLEXIBLE

    We work with you to ensure any deficiencies revealed by the inspection are addressed in a way that meets your needs.
