An old lift does not necessarily need replacing in its entirety, in fact, doing so may be extremely difficult due to the design or layout of the existing lift installation and the Building . Instead, you can have a Lift Modernisation . What does this involve ?

Lifts which are properly serviced and maintained can last years and tend to have a longer life cycle than most if not all other forms of transportation. it’s not uncommon to be servicing existing passenger lifts that are over 25 years old.

However, like any electrical and mechanical equipment, a lift eventually needs to be replaced or thoroughly updated. It may be more difficult to find spare parts for an old lift, so it may be out of order for a longer time causing issues and delays on your site.

In the case of an existing lift installation it should not be assumed that the equipment complies with all current regulations and/or standards. This is particularly unlikely in the event of equipment that is over ten years of age.
