According to Moscow Deputy Mayor for Housing and Communal Services and Improvement Petr Biryukov, competitive procedures have already been carried out, contractors and brands of lifting equipment have been identified. The companies will start working soon. Moscow is the only subject of the Russian Federation where, within the framework of the regional overhaul program, elevators are not repaired after the expiration of their useful life, extending the term. “Since 2018, in homes owned by the regional operator, elevators are strictly replaced in the year of the end of their 25-year useful life,” recalled the deputy mayor. If there are several elevators at the entrance, they are changed one by one: this increases the repair time, but residents do not go up to their floor on foot. They are replacing the elevators in the capital with new ones, up to 90 percent of which were manufactured at the Shcherbinsky Elevator Plant and the Moslift company.

According to Vladimir Kozhichenkov, deputy general director of the Moscow Capital Repair Fund, domestic elevators will be installed even where there used to be foreign equipment. “Our elevators fully meet modern requirements for the safety and comfort of residents,” he said. All new passenger elevators have a higher load capacity of up to 400 kilograms, unlike the old ones, which could support a weight of 150 to 300 kilograms. The use of telescopic doors helped to widen the door from 600 to 700 millimeters. Thanks to this, it is easy to bring a stroller or a wheelchair for a person with reduced mobility into the cabin. The doors of all elevators have an infrared control system: they will not allow the doors to close if there is some kind of obstacle in the opening – a bag, a dog, a stroller, etc. There is no threshold, the walls of the elevators are made of metal-plastic and aluminum, which does not allow vandals to paint them. The buttons cannot be burned, are made of stainless steel and are equipped with Braille. There is also a TFT color screen and an informant voice in the elevators. The average speed of the new elevators has gone from 0.7 to 1 meter per second. And most importantly, they move almost silently. Last year, for the first time, as part of the review, new lifts of the Strizh series from Moslift were tested. One of its features – do not leave empty.
