We are delighted to announce that we have been selected by Bolton Council to install a new passenger lift in their new state of the art office building. The existing council building has recently carried out a full modernisation and is to be finalised with a complete replacement of the existing lift equipment. This is great news not only for Sheridan Lifts but for the local economy. We are a big believer, particularly in the public sector ...Continue Reading → Share
As an established lift company, we thought we’d heard every story relating to lifts and we’ve definitely heard of people getting a little frisky in a lift from time to time, however, we’ve never seen a lift being blamed for a person’s lack of libido – until now.
A woman in Australia is suing her luxury apartment complex and lift company for loss of “sexual adventurism”, “libido” and for “sexual discomfort and impairment” after she was injured when a lift in ...Continue Reading → Share
In our day-to-day lives we may not pay much attention to lifts, I mean, being a lift company, we do but we don’t expect you to, just knowing if a lift is working or not is all you need to know really. However, if you’re a fan of 60’s set TV show Mad Men, you may be more inclined to savour elevator rides. In Mad Men, dozens of key scenes on the ad-agency series have played out on elevators. In ...Continue Reading → Share
Apparently elevators as we know them are set to be revolutionised with the aid of magnets. The new technology has been developed by ThyssenKrupp and is entitled Multi. Multi is believed to be what is needed to transform the way we move around buildings. The new technology will allow lifts to move sideways as well as up and down. We’ve come a long way from cables and hoists!
Magnetic levitation is used to pull elevator cabins horizontally as well as vertically ...Continue Reading → Share
Lifts make the world go round, well up and down to be more exact, so it’s not surprising that there are actually quite a few popular songs that centre on lifts. Obviously because these artists are American they use that other term – elevator. However, the sentiment is pretty much the same! As our business is all about lifts, (yes, dumbwaiter lifts, platform lifts, scissor lifts; the works!) we thought we’d share the 5 best songs about lifts.

We’re constantly preaching the necessity of lift maintenance for every type of lift. Whether you, as a building or a company, have platform lifts, dumbwaiter lifts or even a scissor lift, you need to ensure regular lift maintenance is carried out. This is because, over time, despite the quality of the lift installation and the lift itself, anything can happen to alter the efficacy and safety of the lift.
We read a pretty ironic story recently of a lift maintenance company ...Continue Reading → Share

Superb quality new high speed lifts for our client in Fountain St central Manchester.
Sheridan’s was asked to provide costs to modernise two duplex lift installations in a prestigious building in Manchester City Centre.
As part of our service when discussing a modernisation, we always provide our clients the option of a complete new lift installation set against a modernisation, when we and our client analysed the cost of both options, it was clear that a complete new set of lifts was ...Continue Reading → Share
