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.
- £10kHealth & 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.
- £20kEssential 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.
- £30kImprovements 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.
- £40kReplace 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.
- £50kFull 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.
- £60kRe-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.
