It’s another significant win for our team here at Sheridan Lifts.
A North West care provider has signed up with ourselves for an ongoing lift maintenance contract across their 8 sites in the Blackpool and Flyde area, covering a total of 10 lifts. Interestingly 4 of the lifts are chain driven. As a business we can look after these types of lift utilising our vast industry experience and having access to materials should they be required for upgrading the system.
What is a chain driven lift?
A chain driven lift relies on the mechanism of a large chain to transmit mechanical power. The main difference between a chain drive and a belt drive is that a chain drive is powered by a chain loop, while a belt drive is powered, as the name might suggest, by a belt. Materials also differ with chain drives being constructed of metal, which makes them more durable and stronger compared to a belt. These older types of lift require specialist care and knowledge which Sheridan Lifts have in abundance.
Our experience of working within care homes is unrivalled. When it comes to working in environments such as these where sensitivity is required, each and every engineer employed by Sheridan Lifts understands what is required in terms of both professional standards and etiquette.
Business critical lifts such as these within care homes are pivotal to ensure the safe and stress-free transportation of the residents. As such, Sheridan Lifts are on hand 24 hours a day in case of breakdown or emergencies. We will always attend within 4 hours for general breakdown and within 1 hour for any rare episodes of entrapment.
Following a lengthy tender process, Sheridan Lifts were awarded this maintenance contract and our experience and proficiency along with our assured customer service means we are confident of providing a service above and beyond that of our new client’s previous provider.
