Lift modernisation is a cost-effective and elegant solution to keeping your elevators modern in function and design without having to replace them every few years.


Lift modernisation complete replacement of a lift system is often unnecessary, especially if a periodic modernisation service is in place to look at the lift system in detail, replacing and modernising only those parts that need attention.


Much like installing a new lift, modernisation begins with detailed consultation and surveys of your current system, paying particular attention to components such as the controllers, door operators, and drive units. We also discuss options on aesthetic cab interior refurbishments to keep your whole building looking modern.


Elite Lifts Expert Modernisation Of Lifts Northern Ireland


We consider every component in a lift during all modernisation projects, considering both wear and tear as well as newer technologies available on the market. By upgrading components over time, even an old lift system can perform like new, gaining all the operational and safety benefits that new technology brings.


We are compliant with legislation


Ever-changing legislation can quickly render a lift out of date, or make them non-compliant risking penalties on property owners; often modernisation can cost-effectively solve the problem. We have helped many of our clients stay on top of safety and access laws with simple modernisation projects designed to meet requirements such as the Disability Discrimination Act, Health and Safety legislation, The Lifts Regulations and various British Quality Standards.
