Evacuation lifts are increasingly being installed into new buildings where relevant. With existing lifts being upgraded where possible.

There are many factors to consider when installing a evacuation lift. Many are explained in articles on this website, one question we are often asked are “what different lift components are on a Evacuation lift”.

Shown is a BS9999 evac kit for a lift. You can see in the diagram the system overview. With a brief description on each component.
