Modernizations for existing lifts EN 81-80 / SNEL



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 EN 81-80 / SNEL (Safety norms for Existing Lifts).

EN 81-80 / SNEL describes 74 hazards that must be removed. 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.
