Liftinstituut Solutions: safety expertise since 1933



The consultants from Liftinstituut Solutions have amassed their experience by inspecting and certifying elevators and other types of transport installations. With the extensive knowledge the consultants have gained over many years, they are leaders in elevator safety and reliability – providing advice on vertical transport in general and on elevators, escalators, and window cleaning equipment in particular.

    • For architects
      We help architects make the right choice in terms of numbers, models, and specifications for elevators and escalators. With traffic calculations, for example. Our consultants use the most modern software and are aware of the latest innovations in the elevator industry.
    • For building owners
      We help building owners reduce their total cost of ownership with our Elevator Assist program. For example, we can determine the maintenance required for every elevator and the right time to renovate. We also produce long-term maintenance budgets and supervise elevator renovations. This work is based on site surveys.
    • For elevator manufacturers
      We also support manufacturers and installers with the design of new elevators. In particular, we check whether their plans and solutions comply with European and worldwide standards. Almost all our work is related to international codes and standards, such as the European Elevator Directive, the European Machinery Directive, and the standards EN 81-20 and EN 81-50.
