Construction innovation comes to LIFTEX 2016

Energy-saving compact gearless lift motors, wireless lift controls powered by apps, explosion proof lifts, portable lifts and safety devices are just some of the innovative solutions being demonstrated by more than 100 exhibitors at the UK’s only lift and escalator event, LIFTEX 2016 next month (25 -26 May, ExCeL, London).

Show Director Nick Mellor says

“LIFTEX only takes place once every three years, so this is an ideal opportunity for architects, owners, managers, specifiers, installers, manufacturers and designers of lifts to see the latest ground-breaking technology in action”

“Products to save energy, prevent accidents and address crucial accessibility issues faced by many, will be available to view first hand. This is the place to be if you’re looking to save time, money and energy on your equipment.”

Highlights on the show floor include:

  • Platform lifts, stair lifts and a portable platform lift from Terry Lifts. Its Melody 3 Platform Lift also has an added feature of automatic gates.
  • Real-time servicing, maintenance and repair customer management portal from Apex lifts.
  • MEC32 Lift Controller Microprocessor system which brings 32Bit processing to the lift industry from Digital Advanced Control.
  • The first training programme in business administration for lift companies from Docensas S.L, unveiled for the first time in the UK.
  • Energy efficient, compact gearless motors designed to eliminate the space and high maintenance challenges of conventional electric motor / gearbox and hydraulic systems, being shown for the first time in the UK by Lafert.
  • Explosion proof lifts for hazardous areas from Hydrax Limited. These lifts utilise safe hydraulic systems and control circuits by using components that will not spark or react with the surrounding area.
  • Lift evacuation intercom systems and control panel featuring a smartphone APP which connects locally via Bluetooth or remotely via 3G/4G or by WiFi from Safeline Elevator Parts UK.
