Ensure the Safety of Your Elevators

Do You Need to Increase the Weight Capacity of Your Elevator?

We take elevators for granted in our daily lives and use them without thinking twice if they are secure. Elevator test weights are essential for ensuring safety and are a critical component in the testing and certification of elevators.

Mars Metal offers a broad range of casting abilities and can provide custom test weights to meet your exact requirements.

Solve Your Test Weight Problems

Increase an Existing Elevators Capacity


If you need to increase an existing elevator's capacity, you are going to require a new counterweight. Because lead is much denser than steel, you can increase the weight with the same stack height restrictions.

Mars Metal manufactures both lead and steel counterweights according to the size and shape requirements of the client.
