INTRODUCTION TO MODERNISATION
Extending Lease of Life
EXTENDING LEASE OF LIFE
The obsolete components of the existing elevator are replaced by new systems while some of the existing components, which can still be used for many years without causing any problem, are retained.
Generally, elevators that have been in service for 20 years or more develop reliability problems arising from the old technology being unable to meet the increasing demands. System breakdowns will increase and more repairs will be required despite the efforts put in by the maintenance crew. This is the time when it is generally recommended to consider modernising the elevator as a cost effective way to resolve the high maintenance and repair expenses due to system ageing. At the same time, it is timely to look into the improved performance of the elevator to serve the building better.
Improvement in Operation Performance

Elevator Life Cycle Management
The average elevator replacement cycle is 20 to 25 years.
It is recommended for elevators which have passed 15 to 20 years of service since installation to be modernised to meet the standards or specifications of latest models.
