Modernization of existing lifts

Even with the most comprehensive maintenance program, all lifts, eventually, require modernisation or replacement. Delaying modernisation too long will result in the same detrimental effects that would result from ignoring the maintenance requirements.

Many do not recognise the symptoms of a declining lift early enough to avoid a crisis. Lift problems, such as downtime and slow operation, are obvious while others, such as high energy usage and electrical noise generation, are not.

Symptoms of Imminent Lift Failure

  1. Long wait times
  2. High energy use
  3. Power quality
  4. Frequent breakdowns
  5. Long wait times and slow performance may be caused by a defective part, or problems may be caused by the age and overall condition of the lift.

Buildings contain computer equipment [such as PC’s, laptops, photocopiers] sensitive to power fluctuations, any form of alternating current can interfere with the equipment, or cause damage. This is common with older lifts, and is caused by the way the lift drive system utilises power.

Not all common issues are as obvious as slow response times or frequent breakdowns. Lifts contribute towards a high proportion of the energy used within a building, without a meter to monitor energy used, few realise exactly how much energy lifts use – especially in high traffic environments.

The most common symptoms of a lift in need of a major overhaul is an increase in service calls. As components wear with age they, require adjustments, often interfering with the operation of the lift, or rendering it unusable until tended to.
