From modular modernisation to full replacement, we can help

Investing in the continued reliability of your existing lift or escalator will keep traffic moving in a hassle-free and reliable manner. Elevator upgrades are a cost-effective way to keep your lift running instead of a new lift replacement. 

As one of the leading lift refurbishment companies, Stannah has the expertise to bring any lift, escalator or moving walkway up to date, regardless of make or model. Or advise if it's time for a lift replacement.

An escalator refurbishment or lift upgrade improves safety and gives immediate energy savings, improving both the building's appearance and energy use.

Our extensive experience ranges from restoring heritage lifts to their former glory to modernising older lifts to meet the latest standards. Over the years, we've proven our ability to deliver, refurbishing hundreds of passenger lifts in busy Network Rail stations across the U.K. 

We can advise you on how to improve lift reliability and safety, enhance appearance, reap immediate energy savings, and conform to the latest safety standards and regulations. 

Customer service is important to us. Our highly skilled team works with you throughout the modernisation process - ensuring you keep up to date on progress and have a product that feels brand new.
