You can’t deny the fact that lifts are one of the most awkward encounters that you will face and even lift professionals like ourselves believe this to be true. If you think about, you’re crammed into a small box with people that you don’t know and having to spend unwanted time with them. Although, sometimes it can lead to fate and love, but the majority of the time it’s just awkward. I suppose the only time when lifts don’t become socially awkward is when our guys are performing lift maintenance or a lift installation!

Now, what if there was a way around such behaviour? What if you could step into a lift and not have to pray that someone else joins you? Well fortunately for you there is a solution and it’s quite simple too – a dispatch lift installation. A dispatch lift basically groups people up depending on what floor they are travelling to, which means you don’t have to make that crucial decision as to whether you should keep the door open for late people.

There will be some form of social awkwardness, but it won’t be as bad as you’re all going to the same place. The Financial Times Manhattan building currently has the dispatch lift in place. We’re not sure how it’s doing, but sure it’s going just fine.

It will only be a matter of time before more offices in the UK will opt for this particular lift installation and Elevators Ltd will be ready.
