Lift Speed vs Waiting Time from Shotton Lifts

Speed v Waiting Time

We often see specifications for lifts requiring travel speeds of 1.0m/sec or more.

With the great heights that commercial and high rise buildings go to these days, speed is a very important factor in reducing the time (or wait) we have when travelling in a lift. But what if the building isn’t going a great height?

The NBN is rolling out! Are you ready?

How does this affect your lift emergency phone?

The NBN is not guaranteed to work during a power outage meaning your emergency lift phone may not be able to make a call to your lift support centre if you have a power failure.

• Shotton Lifts will supply and fit a 3G GSM module into your lift control system for your lift emergency phone.

Factors you should be aware of when considering servicing of your lift

Safety checks significantly reduce the chance of injury.

Your lift, just like a car, has many parts that need to run harmoniously together for it to work safely or at all. Shotton Lifts are built to the highest quality to meet Australian Safety standards. Over time there is a chance that integral parts will deteriorate if not serviced and maintained.
