Space elevator – Lift Companies

When you were a kid did you ever think “instead of flying to the moon, why can’t we build a really tall lift?” It’s a thought most children have had and that most parents have scoffed at, but now a Canadian firm has produced a patent for a “space elevator.”

The innovative lift would shoot cargo 12.4 miles into the stratosphere and launched from there more easily. It will be a tremendous cost saver as shuttle wouldn’t need to carry as ...

A great way to save you money – and the environment! – Lift Companies

Businesses are always looking to save money where they can, without compromising the quality of the product or service they’re providing to their customers of course. Energy saving lifts are a fantastic way to save a company a large chunk of money and allow them to operate in an eco-friendly way.

A busy building means a lift that will be in near constant use which also means high operational costs. Lifts tend to use up a lot of electricity! However, switching ...

Not a company who will be monkeying around – Lift Companies

The old saying goes that if you pay peanuts then you get monkeys; meaning if you don’t pay very much then you aren’t going to get a very good job done! It is a philosophy we live by here at Sheridan Lifts. We believe that if you go for the low-budget option then you’re going to get an inferior product, inferior service and an inferior company.

Here at Sheridan Lifts, whether we’re completing a new lift installation, a lift repair or ...

A lift with a view and a half – Lift Companies

If you’re going to hold the record for being the world’s tallest outdoor lift then you really should have the word “long” in your name, just like the amazing Bailong Elevator in Hunan, China. The Guinness World Record holding lift stands at 326m and is in the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park.

Over half of the lift (171.4m) is above ground and is built onto the side of a quartzite cliff. Passengers who dare to ride the spine tingling lift are treated ...

Access for all – Lift Company

We live in an age that is all about equality. And that’s the way it should be! No matter your race, gender, sexual preference or physical capabilities the world and all it has to offer should be readily available for all.

A broken lift can have you feeling trapped – Lift Company

Many people depend on lifts for their mobility and freedom, especially older and disabled people who live in high rises or indeed any kind of building which has any number of stairs. So if a lift in a domestic building, or even a commercial building, breaks down it can leave a person literally trapped; unable to socialise, go to work or leave their homes. When a lift breaks down, which is disappointing but sometimes unavoidable, there needs to be a ...

Would you want a deathtrap lift installed in your building? – Lift Company

Yes that’s a serious question! The paternoster lift is a special kind of lift that has no doors and moves up and down the building shaft on a continuous loop. Named after the Lord’s Prayer, you can only fit one or two passengers inside each cabin and they’re thought to be highly efficient; if not dangerous. Paternoster lifts are kind of dumbwaiters for people when you think about it! Passengers must pay close attention when stepping on and off as ...

What were you doing when you were 11 years old? Playing football? Giving your Barbies a detailed back story? You were probably catching up with the latest Dexter’s Laboratory or Hey Arnold episodes. You know kids today; they seem a lot more grown up than we ever were at that age. Whilst we were collecting pogs and Pokémon cards and playing out until our Mum’s shouted us in for tea, kids today are going through break ups and they have ...
