The Sky’s the Limit

Technological breakthroughs happen on a day-to-day basis, as we are constantly progressing and evolving as a community. Some are revolutionary, however, and make you sit back in wonderment. Elevator researchers have discovered that they can more than double the height of the world’s highest skyscrapers by replacing tired old steel cables with durable, resilient and hard wearing carbon fibre rope. Even Superman himself would have trouble pulling these super, super strong riggings apart as they are designed to be indestructible. The Burj Khalifa in Dubai stands at a majestic 2, 716 feet tall and is the largest building in the entire world, but even a behemoth such as this can be extended to make it even more imposing and impressive. The Finnish company Kone have been working on these improvements for years and believe that they can transform skylines all over the Earth with their innovative ideas. These amazing ropes could change the face of elevators forever, and take lift modernisation to a whole new level. A single, solitary lift shaft can be extended for more than a whole kilometre if Kone are to be believed, which is truly incredible.

Creating more living space is essential in overpopulated places as all major cities are crowded and cramped, and you cannot move for the amount of people travelling at peak times. If these developments come to fruition then lift installation has to be as thorough and methodical as possible. You do not want to run the risk of making silly mistakes or missing key areas where lift repair is an absolute must. At Sheridan Lifts, we are calm and composed, proactive and proficient. Sure; we have never been in a position where lift installation tasks involve extending a near three-thousand foot building such as the Burj Khalifa, but we would relish the opportunity to get stuck in.

Frequent lift maintenance checks are extremely important if you want to guarantee that an elevator is safe to utilise. You must make sure that the brakes, pulleys and doors are in perfect working order as lift repair can be costly and time consuming, Here at Sheridan Lifts, we promise you will be satisfied with  our excellent lift installation services and we come highly recommended by scores of well-known businesses and colleges.
