Full replacement

With full replacement we completely remove your old elevator and install a brand-new, accessibility-compliant one in your building’s existing shaft. We recommend this option if:

  • your elevator is more than 25 years old
  • is unreliable, cramped, or slow
  • is difficult for some people to access and use

AVERAGE TIMEFRAME 4-6 WEEKS *

Modular modernization

We can upgrade your elevator’s performance and appearance, and cut running costs, by updating entire systems – such as the hoisting machinery, electrification system, or doors – in one go. Modular modernization is ideal if your elevator is:

  • 15 to 20 years old
  • consuming a lot of electricity
  • doesn’t level accurately with landing floors
  • has an outdated and impractical interior

AVERAGE TIMEFRAME 1-2 WEEKS *

  • more than 10 years old
  • suffering from problems like noisy doors or outdated and impractical signalization
