Unique Elevator Designs: Part 2

Lifts in the UK very rarely vary by design. But across the rest of the world engineers have been getting creative on how they design elevators.

Take a look at the ingenious Neri-Go evacuation lift

As we look to the future, the logistics surrounding elevator maintenance become more of a challenge. More and more companies are installing lift systems, and if one of them should fail, ever evolving obstacles are slowing the speed of repairs.

So what can be done to overcome the problem of urban logistics?

One possible solution may ...

Buy or lease: which one is right for your business?

Part 1: Lifts To Aid Mobility Issues

Elevators are a part of our daily lives, and were a vital part of history; as they allowed cities to expand vertically as well as horizontally. We owe a lot to elevators. So to honour one of the greatest inventions, let’s get to know them a little better.

The Key Signs Of A Faulty Lift

You hurry inside, cramped in with everyone else, and let out an audible groan as the lift decides to break down half way through its journey. Not exactly an ideal situation, right?
