Most of these elevators will appear in the southern and northern districts of the capital.
About 600 elevators with an enlarged doorway will be installed in the capital’s high-rise buildings in 2021. The work will take place as part of the planned renovation of the capital’s elevator facilities under the regional overhaul program.
Doorways for lifting mechanisms will be increased from 650 to 700-800 millimeters where it is technically feasible. This will significantly increase the availability of elevators for people with limited mobility and parents with wheelchairs.
“The number of elevators, which are planned to be replaced in 2021 with those where the doorway has been increased to 800 millimeters, is about 200 pieces, up to 700 millimeters – about 400 pieces. Most of the cabins with widened openings will be installed in the Southern and Northern Administrative Districts, ”said the General Director
Fund for overhaul of apartment buildings in Moscow Arthur Keskinov.
New lifts will be even faster – modern lifts move at a speed of one meter per second.
The control panel in the new cabins is made of stainless steel, the buttons are illuminated and in Braille. All lifts are equipped with a color TFT display, as well as a mirror and handrail on the side or rear wall.
As the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Utilities and Improvement Petr Biryukov said earlier, this year, within the framework of the regional overhaul program, it is planned to replace more than three thousand elevators in apartment buildings, two thousand new elevators have already installed.
A large-scale program for the renovation of the elevator facilities was approved 10 years ago. As part of it, over 38 thousand elevators have already been replaced. Today, there is not a single elevator in the city whose service life would exceed the established limit of 25 years.
During the work, elevator equipment is used, which is produced in Moscow and the Moscow region. According to its characteristics, it fully complies with modern requirements for the safety and comfort of passengers. If there are several elevators at the entrance, they are changed one at a time so that the residents do not experience any inconvenience.
In total, more than 112 thousand elevators have been installed in the apartment buildings of the capital, each of which is included in the regional capital repair program with an exact indication of the period for its replacement.
For the convenience of Muscovites, the website of the Capital Repair Fund has been posted interactive map with a plan to replace elevators for 2022 and 2023. You can also use the website of the prefecture of the county where the house is located, or the electronic service Fund for overhaul of apartment buildings in Moscow, where you need to specify the desired address in the search bar.
