replace or modernise

Not all older lifts should be replaced or need to be replaced; this is when lift modernisation is the correct solution.

Well-maintained lift products often last decades. However, as time moves on, so does safety and lift regulations. Therefore, many older lifts require modernisation to meet current-day legislation.

In most cases, lifts are eligible for modernisation. Before we suggest a replacement, we will suggest modernisation to extend the life span of the older elevator. With this in mind, the life span of older lifts can be extended by years or several decades, depending on the extent of modernisation work involved.  

3 reasons to modernise

    1. Improved Lift Performance – Lifts brought up to date electrically and mechanically perform more optimally, reduce energy costs & reduce safety risks.
    2.  Lower Repair Costs – It is much cheaper to repair a modernised lift, as getting obsolete parts is either very expensive or sometimes impossible.
    3.  Added Value – If the lift is situated in public view, a more modern lift brings both aesthetic and performance value, like any environment sometimes a lift needs a makeover and MW Lift Services are well prepared for new lift interior works or mechanical overhauls.
