There’s a lot to be said for modern, up-to-date buildings and facilities. They appear more professional and command higher rentals than less well-appointed premises do. Refurbishment of a building is not complete without considering elevator modernization, to ensure the safety and comfort of passengers during vertical transportation.

A Timeworn Problem

Elevator interiors are one of the first things visitors and potential customers notice. Drawing their attention to timeworn and grubby cabs, doors and fixtures can raise the question in their minds of whether the controls are in the same condition. Regardless of how well you’ve maintained your elevators, a shabby appearance can result in dissatisfaction on the part of your visitors. Elevator modernization is the ideal solution to these concerns.

From a Facelift to a Renovation

At Southern Elevator, we can provide services ranging from a simple “facelift” of your elevators to a complete renovation of your existing equipment. By using non-proprietary elevator controls in all our installations, combined with fast, reliable service, we can perform elevator modernization that results in your elevators both looking superb and working efficiently in a very short time.

Cab Interior Redesign

We specialize in cab interior redesign using a computer simulation program that enables you to view and contemplate multiple different options for your elevator modernization project. You’ll be able to see and experience how the new elevator cabs will look, well before any installations begin.
