A peek inside the secret world of lifts


Published on: 05-06-2015

We’d often like to be a fly on the wall on some of the lift installations we have completed – what can we say, we’re nosey! It would be great to see the kinds of people that step in and out of our lifts and the goings on that happen between floors.

It was recently the annual Met Gala which reminded us of a particular lift incident that we wish we could have witnessed first-hand. Don’t know what we’re talking about? The Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Solange elevator fight of course! As epic lift scenes go, it’s probably one for the history books, especially as the family are so notoriously private. But it also begs the question “what other dramas don’t we see that happen in lifts?”


Once we’ve completed our lift installations, and we’ve checked everything is in working order, our engineers return for regular lift maintenance but they never get a chance to stick around and see what drama unfolds. We might start a separate blog of the craziest lift stories we hear. Have you got any?

With the amount of time we spend in lifts during our lifetime, and how frequently we use them, it’s only natural that there would be some drama occurring or some crazy event happening. It’s just that after the lift installations we don’t get to witness them. So go on, tell us, what’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done or seen in a lift?
