Modernization of a lift system means a partial overhauling, where some previous components are kept in use.
The target of a modernization is to obtain modernized lift systems with safety and accessibility levels equal to new lift systems.
A modernized lift system uses newer technologies, is easier to operate, features a reduced energy consumption and is compliant to EN81-80 / SNEL (Safety norms for Existing Lifts).
EN81-80 / SNEL describes 74 hazards that must be removed from existing lift systems in the next years. It is gradually being applied in the EU, but it is also a reference standard also outside Europe.
Existing lifts are being tested according to this hazard list by a certification body. The test result gives information about the current lift status and the list of components that have a higher hazard from a safety point of view. The higher hazard components must be replaced first.
