VM Elevators were contracted by Safestore to carry out the modernisation of 2 Goods/Passenger lifts, one at 1500kg the other at 2000kg at their storage facility in Newcastle. Both lifts serve 4 floors & are open through. The works consisted of replacing the control system with a UK supplied VVVF panel, replacing the manual car & landing shutter gates with heavy duty Selcom power operated doors. The works also involved modification of the lift cars to accept new entrances, completely relining the lift cars,  full rewire, replacing broken rope safeties with overspeed governor & manufacture, supply & fit new fabricated shaft front returns/headers.
