The HydroElite Experience

When a lift starts to age, you should modernise it instead of replacing it. That will saves money, time, and the environment.

Circular economy for lifts

Circular economy is an expression of economic models in a company, society, or organisation, which highlights business opportunities where circular cycles are used rather than linear processes that have hitherto been dominant.

A lift consists of several components with very varying service life. The lift is normally installed in a very protected environment so the impact from the surroundings is negligible. Components that are not wear parts have a very long service life, such as guides, support frame, lift car and door panels.

Reuse as much as possible

Build robust modular lifts that can be repaired. When, after 20-30 years, it is time to modernise the lift, reuse as much as possible. Finally, when all parts are worn out, it’s time to recycle all the material and replace with a brand new one.



Hydroware’s lifts are adapted to be modernised again and again. There are many reasons to upgrade the lift instead of replacing the entire lift. Read more about all the benefits of lift modernisation here.
