More than 45.2 thousand elevators have been replaced in Moscow as part of the capital’s capital repair program since 2011. They are used by over 3.6 million citizens. This was reported at the Moscow Municipal Services Complex. In 2023, more than 3.8 thousand new elevators were installed in multi-storey residential buildings, and plans for 2024 include replacing over 2.6 thousand more elevators.

When replacing elevator equipment, the capital standard developed during the work of the Moscow Capital Repair Fund is used. In 2019, new requirements for elevators were established, which pay additional attention to safety and comfort issues.

The capital’s standard for elevator equipment in residential buildings includes a number of mandatory parameters. Among them are an increase in the door opening to 70 centimeters (up to 80 – where the shaft allows), the use of modern wear-resistant finishing (cabin panels are made of metal-plastic, and the floor is covered with corrugated aluminum) and energy-efficient LED lamps (thanks to them, illumination increases up to five times). The new cabs feature a stainless steel control panel with large backlit buttons and Braille text. All new elevators have color displays, mirrors and handrails installed on the side or rear wall. The work uses domestically produced equipment, which in its characteristics fully complies with modern standards and requirements.

The Moscow capital renovation program includes more than 29 thousand houses, the total area of which exceeds 290 million square meters. They plan to repair more than 420 thousand engineering systems and structural elements of buildings, as well as replace over 115 thousand lifts (more than 20 percent of the capital’s elevator background).

Since 2011, the capital has been implementing a large-scale program to replace elevator equipment, which has no analogues in the country. Its pace made it possible to update all lifts that had reached the end of their standard service life and, starting in 2018, to switch to planned replacement.

The rate of replacement of elevators will be maintained in full.
