The current structure of the Elevator Directive and the status of the associated elevator standards provide engineers with the tools and scope for new and innovative PES systems. These systems have already found their way into aviation and the automotive industry, and are now the new game changer for elevators as well. Liftinstituut has plenty of experience in certifying PES systems and is keen to guide you towards PESS certification.
More and more organizations are making demands on the energy consumption of elevators.

Using advanced measuring methods, Liftinstituut can help you make your lift's energy performance visible to your customers. Afterwards, Liftinstituut will provide you with a detailed report, an Energy Performance Certificate, and an energy label.
In places where vertical transport is part of the core transport services, such as in subway and train stations and at airports, the downtime of elevators and escalators must be kept to a minimum.

That is why they want to be sure that all installations run smoothly from the start as well as in the longer term. Liftinstituut helps with the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT).
