Lift and Elevator Component Upgrades

Benefits of upgrades


Upgrading your lift’s electrification system, control system, and car lighting can significantly reduce the amount of energy it consumes. As well as making your lift more eco-efficient, these upgrades also cut your operating costs.


Lift performance can be greatly improved by modernising components like the control system and door operator. These upgrades improve reliability, levelling accuracy, waiting time, and accessibility.


Making sure lift passengers and maintenance personnel are safe is the number one priority. Upgrading components like the shaft and machine room lighting, the car overspeed governor, or the machinery guards will improve safety and help you better manage risk in your building.
