Like all mechanical equipment, elevators have a finite life. At some point in time due to safety issues repetitive repairs or performance you will want to upgrade or modernize your existing equipment. Modernizing equipment and upgrading to the latest technology improves passenger safety, tenant satisfaction, efficiency and reliability and is a solid long-term real estate investment.

Factors to consider

  • Safety
  • Code compliance
  • Age and equipment condition
  • Parts availability and support

Customized to your need

Every update is customized to the specific situation and equipment condition. This can range from motors and doors to adding a new non-proprietary microprocessor-based control system. A modernized system reduces energy consumption, improves ride performance and speeds, and drastically cuts repair costs.

  • Elevator controllers
  • Door operators and related mechanicals
  • Machines, machine motors or power units
  • Fixtures and operating panels
  • Cab panels/walls, ceiling and lighting


Modernization eliminates old unreliable technologies and outdated equipment. Old equipment is prone to shutdowns, uneven floor landings, door problems and inadequate emergency equipment. Improving safety and peace of mind are two of the very important key benefits of an upgrade or modernization.

Nonproprietary equipment

Eagle Elevator installs only nonproprietary elevator equipment during upgrades and modernizations wherever possible. This eliminates company specific equipment or software which means that any qualified contractor can work on your equipment. By using nonproprietary equipment building owners can’t be held hostage by an OEM or particular installer.
