Now is the time to think about elevator modernization

An elevator or escalator, like any machine, eventually reaches the end of its life cycle.

Even with regular maintenance and repair, after decades of constant operation – starting more than 100,000 times a year and travelling thousands of miles – it may need to be replaced or thoroughly modernized.

More than one third of the world’s elevators and escalators are over 20 years old. In that time frame, even the best maintained equipment could fall short of expectations.

The purpose of HQ modernization solutions is quite simple: to increase the value of your asset by keeping the elevators and escalators running safely and reliably for the lifetime of your building.

HQ offers modernization solutions ranging from individual elevator and escalator parts for HQ or competitor manufactured equipment all the way to full replacement solutions for almost the entire elevator and escalator installation.

It’s time to consider modernizing if any of these are true…

  • You’re unsure if the elevator complies with current code and safety standards
  • People wait too long in the lobby
  • Passengers complain about poor floor leveling, ride comfort or noise
  • The building’s use has changed since the elevator was first installed
  • The elevator:
    • – is more than 10 years old
    • – looks worn and out-of-date
    • – gets overcrowded
    • – shuts down often
    • – has a negative effect on rental and property values
