Stannah Lift Services has completed the modernisation of a duplex of lifts adjacent to the central stairway and a single lift adjacent to the access on the opposite side of the building at The Old Market multi-storey car park, Paul Street.
All three lifts are 6-stop traction lifts, the duplex lifts each catering for 16 persons/1250kg and the single lift being a 13-person/ 975kg capacity.
Work included new traction drive systems with a high performance motor gear unit for each lift, new electronic controllers and totally refurbished lift cars and landing doors.
Each lift was completed simultaneously, in order to maintain sufficient public access over the six car park levels.
The duplex pair is neatly linked to one call button, positioned centrally between the two lifts, doing away with the usual confusion of which lift to call and where they both are.
