Even when your lift performs well, it can be easy to overlook the importance of aesthetics. With time, many factors can contribute to a worn and tired appearance. Even when every effort has been made to keep your building up to date, an outdated lift can create entirely the wrong impression of a modern premises.

It could be that the back wall of the lift car has been vandalised or that the steel door frame has been constantly rubbed against since installation. If this is the case for your building, Temple Lifts can help with a range of solutions to address the poor visual appearance of any lift.


Our services range from minor aesthetic improvements, or your lift may benefit from an entirely new and modern interior. Our experienced, in-house design engineers will advise you on available options and provide drawings and samples of finishes. With Temple Lifts, we provide every option to help you decide on the best route forward, considering budget and time scales.

Today’s lifts utilise solid state technology in their computer-managed controllers, lift car and landing call and control buttons. Therefore, when assessing poor performance of any lift, the assessment must include the electronic technology that manages it.
