Lift Refurbishment & Modernisation

Keeping the UK's existing lift stock up to standard

Looking after your lift equipment and meeting all the current lift standards, may mean replacement or refurbishing and modernising your equipment. That's where our expertise can help - and often cut your running costs too!

We start by carrying out a thorough lift survey so that we can then put forward our recommendations for lift refurbishment or modernisation in the form of a detailed specification.

Lift Refurbishment

The work undertaken during a lift refurbishment might include the following:

  • Modifying your lift to comply with current standards/legislation, e.g. The Equality Act (formerly DDA); Health & Safety Legislation; Lifts Regulations (1997); BS7255 Safe Working on Lifts; EN81-80
  • Updating your existing lifts to comply with the recently introduced EN81-20 and EN81-50 and soon to be introduced Lift Regulations (2016), which place emphasis on increased safety
  • Aesthetic enhancements to the lift car and landing doors/entrances
  • Enhancements to control/drive systems to improve: Reliability; Ride quality; Traffic flow
  • Automatic re-levelling
  • Reduced journey time

Lift Modernisation

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. Instead, you can have a lift modernised where we replace obsolete components with their modern equivalent. A lift modernisation would normally be a larger job than a lift refurbishment.

Why Stannah?

Our aim with any refurbishment or modernisation is to reduce the risk of lift failure, making them safer and more comfortable for everyone who interacts with them.

With our nationwide coverage of service branches, we own and manage each project locally. This means less travelling time and more time on site getting on with the job.

For larger scale projects our Major Projects Team can work collaboratively on a lift refurbishment project (such as the London Hippodrome) or take on the Principal Contractor role and co-ordinate other suppliers (North Lincolnshire Hospital Trust)

Our customers know they can rely on us to complete the job professionally.
