The Great Glass Elevator

 

 

 

 

 

 

Imagine if an elevator could take you wherever you wanted to go; be it in the past, present or even the future. Like the Tardis or Bill and Ted’s ‘Most Excellent Time Machine’ the lift featured in the sequel to ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’; ‘Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator’; has powers beyond anyone’s wildest dreams and can transport passengers to places far away from the real world. Everyone would relish the opportunity to escape from the stresses and ...

What a Let-Down

The residents of Wimborne House on Marine Parade in Dovercourt have become prisoners in their own home as the elevator has been out of use for the past 4 weeks. Obviously those who rely on wheelchairs to get around easily cannot scale numerous flights of stairs without encountering problems along the way and having to ask for assistance so this comes as a real nuisance. People who live in the building do not know when this situation is going to ...

Lifting the Nation’s Spirits

 

 

 

 

 

A 2-0 result against Poland (who incidentally had already been knocked out of the competition) may not seem all that exciting but it meant that the country has now started to feel more confident about next year’s World Cup tournament. We are all aware that Joe Hart has floundered of late and that Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard are getting on a bit but still we remain stoic and focused. Young talent has risen up the ranks and ...

Sheridan Lifts new Payment plans for lift Modernisations

 

Lift modernisation over the last 5 years on a whole has been at the sharp end of the austerity measures on building upgrades. Most maintenance budgets have been under pressure to cut back on expenditure.

Cutting out the waste in any responsible firm is critical, but how far is too far? We had a client who came to us because there lift was breaking down and the costs of maintaining the lift was increasing each month. The lift was dated and ...

Costing a Fortune

 

 

 

 

 

This little church in Springfield, America, has suffered the unfortunate consequences of having to fork out a fortune for having the privilege of a 4ft elevator installed for wheelchair users. Costs have skyrocketed by a massive 2000%; which is quite astonishing as they need to ensure that those impaired by disabilities can travel to and from the building with ease and do not want to discriminate on grounds of physical deficiency. Lift maintenance is integral for this local parish as ...

It Can Happen to Anyone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This poor guy is the unfortunate Nick White, who was trapped in a lift for nearly two whole days. He lost his confidence and self-belief when he was left without food and water for a total of 41 hours and his life ultimately changed from there on in. Once an outgoing, extroverted individual; this gentleman transformed into a shy, retiring man who could not work for years after his traumatic ordeal. All he had done was go for a quick ...

Women and Children First

 

 

 

 

 

 

This faded photograph depicts one of the RMS Titanic’s four elevators; three of which were situated in 1st Class, the other found in 2nd. Steerage did not have the privilege of scaling the decks by lift so had to make do with Shanks’ Pony instead (or on foot, if you want to put it more succinctly). The majestic and awe-inspiring vessel was truly a sight to behold and if you were (un)fortunate to travel on her maiden-and final-voyage then you ...
