Lift Repairs vs Refurbish vs Replacement
Use the animation on this page to see the likely results for improving lift reliability and compliance relative to expenditure. Example relates to a typical medium rise 8 person passenger lift.
Health & Safety Repairs only, no improvement in reliability. Items likely to be replaced/repaired: Pit Stop switches, shaft lighting, car top controls, safety barriers, door locks, isolators etc.
Essential repairs to improve critical areas of unreliability, but not cure obsolescence. Items likely to be replaced/repaired: Door operators and locks, car levelling and lighting, car overhaul, bump-rails, button repairs. Short term reliability improvements achieved.
Improvements to key components by replacing various parts associated with unreliability. Reliability and appearance improvements achieved. Replace landing/car doors, new landing/car fixtures and fittings, new travelling cables, new ropes etc.
Replace key components such as controllers, hydraulic valve units and removing obsolete parts. Reliability and appearance improvements achieved. New controllers, drives, machines, hydraulic units, guide shoes, architrave etc.
Full modernisation of all key components on the lift to essentially replace the lift like for like and improve system integrity. Replace all key lift system components/car controls/finishes covering all areas relating to appearance and performance. Reliability and appearance improvements achieved.
Re-install new lift. Provides improved lift life expectancy 25+ years, potentially offering more environmentally friendly technologies including machine-room-less options. Reliability and appearance improvements and life expectancy achieved.
