Here at Elevators Ltd, we believe that lift modernisation is just as important as lift maintenance. After all, the mechanical components within an elevator must be inspected regularly by a qualified engineer and repaired as and when required. After all, fully-functioning components and an aesthetical interior are the most fool-proof way to make the best first impression. Read on as we go over everything there is to know about lift modernisation…

What is lift modernisation?

Replacing an outdated elevator is a costly affair that most property owners struggle to afford which is why lift modernisation is a recommended alternative. After all, it encourages the replacement of worn components with modern alternatives in order to reduce costs and ensure that a lift manages to reach its longevity guarantee. Generally, a modernisation service will cover the motor, hoist machinery, buttons and electrical wiring.

How expensive is lift modernisation?

Contrary to belief, modernising an elevator is more affordable than property owners realise. After all, modern components tend to use less energy which means that savings are often made during the running of the lift itself. In addition to this, it is also thought to be more cost-effective to modernise individual elevator components rather than invest in a full lift replacement service.

Does lift modernisation increase the lifespan of a lift?

Although every elevator is different, an updated and well-maintained elevator system tends to stick around a lot longer than a neglected one. After all, routine service and maintenance may highlight areas of concern and ensure that they are promptly repaired but modernisation also replaces these components where necessary in order to ensure that the other components do not have to compensate for the damage. As a result, a modernised elevator can outlive an unmodernised elevator by several years.

It is normal that an elevator will begin to show signs of wear and tear near the end of its lifespan. After all, man-made components rely on regular servicing and maintenance from a qualified engineer in order to ensure that they remain in tip top condition for as long as possible. After all, replacing an elevator is often expensive! Luckily, modernisation aims to replace worn components with new ones to save property owners money and time.
