Lift Refurbishment / Lift Modernisation

Lift refurbishment or modernisation covers the three main aspects of your lift:

Electrics & Electronics – can mean updating the lift car control panels, the landing operating panels and the lift drive control unit and/or machine room.

Mechanics – to ensure your lift provides a smooth, quiet ride and is energy efficient and safe.

Interiors – if you’re just looking for to upgrade your lift interior, try our lift interiors page

Lift Door Re-surfacing –  instead of replacing damaged lift doors, resurface them instead! They’ll look better – at a fraction of the cost of replacement.

Lift Refurbishment Site Surveys

We usually begin with a site survey to determine what improvements are necessary to ensure your passenger lift meets modern standards. This includes an assessment of:

  • Performance in terms of safety, reliability, noise, vibration, floor levelling and general equipment condition
  • Compliance with current legislation such as the Equality Act 2010 (often known as the Disability Discrimination Act or DDA compliance)
  • A complete review of the mechanics and electronics
  • A review of the interior cosmetics

The results will identify the areas which are in need of improvement so you can make informed decisions.

Increased lift safety

Your refurbished lift will comply with EN81-20 so that it meets the latest and highest safety standards.

The modernisation work included with refurbishing a lift results in improved safety, energy efficiency and lift stability. It also reduces noise and ensures a smooth lift operation.

Also included in a lift modernisation is enhanced floor levelling accuracy, back up lighting, door operators and smooth acceleration & deceleration.

Overall, a lift refurbishment means a better looking lift that works better for it’s users and is more energy efficient for it’s owner.


The cost of a full lift replacement can be expensive and is not always necessary! At R J Lift Services, we find that lift modernisation is often considerably cheaper and less time consuming than a full-blown replacement project.

The increased reliability which comes from lift modernisation helps keep repair costs and lift downtime to a minimum which, in turn, increases the cost effectiveness of the project.
