  • When it is time to replace the safety device on your rack & pinion elevator, you may want to explore your purchase options.  New OEM, Recertified OEM, and STROS are all viable, code compliant options offering a wide range in pricing.

    OEM Replacements

    Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts are made by the elevator manufacturer.   Typically new OEM replacement safety devices will have the highest price tag.  Cores from the expired safety device must be returned to the supplier.

    Recertified OEM

    There are a number of third party companies that have designed engineered solutions for rebuilding and recertifying used safety devices.  The recertified safety device is code compliant and is typically more cost effective than new OEM safeties.  Cores from the expired safety device must be returned to the supplier.


    STROS is an OEM rack & pinion elevator manufacturer with over 50 years of experience.  STROS has designed safety devices that are compatible with most brands of rack & pinion elevators and are code compliant.  STROS safety devices typically are lower priced than other OEMs.  Cores from the expired safety device must be returned to the supplier.
