Next month’s LIFTEX 2019 (15-16 May 2019, ExCeL, London) is set to discuss solutions to modernise, maintain and improve a building’s lifts and escalators.
Organised by the Lift & Escalator Industry Association (LEIA) and aimed at specifiers, installers, designers and building managers, LIFTEX is an exhibition of 120 leading suppliers showcasing the latest innovations and technology from the lift and escalator industry.
A free seminar programme will also be offered at the event, giving visitors an insight into issues such as: the future for standards and regulations for lifts, duties for owners of escalators, fire safety and evacuation planning, improving the safety of existing lifts and emergency communication lines.
Plus, LEIA will host a free Advice Centre for anyone facing issues with their lifts or wanting to learn more about keeping their equipment safe and maintained.
Space-saving gearless machines without the need for engine rooms or large pit heights. IoT remote lift monitoring devices which can predict faults before they occur and schedule predictive maintenance.
Intuitive apps and data to allow users to order lifts remotely, and intelligent lift planning to organise the user flow for efficiency. Modernisation solutions to bring lifts in older buildings up to date with new constructions. Invisible lifts which only appear when called by the user or home and goods lifts which are integrated into a building design.
“The landscape has changed significantly for anyone tasked with specifying, installing or managing a building’s lifts” comments LIFTEX Show Director, Oliver Greening. “We know that smart technology is revolutionising the way we work and live, but it’s also changing how we move around within these environments. Our exhibitors will be showcasing the latest innovations which ultimately will save space, time, money and energy. If you want to understand the future of safe people flow within your building, then don’t miss this opportunity to attend the only UK event dedicated to lifts, escalators and moving equipment.”
