Inspections yield substantial data that can be used to ensure safety and increase the life span of a lift or escalator. The results serve as a valuable input for your maintenance systems and provide early warnings of future problems so you can avoid costs or, at worst, an emergency breakdown.

Kiwa Inspecta inspects all kinds of lifts and escalators. We do inspections at every level, ranging from design review, installation, manufacturing, modernisation, maintenance and in-service inspections. We serve you with skilled and experienced staff, combined with practical procedures and clear-cut documentation. Integrity and respect for our partners are imperative for Kiwa Inspecta and we work very closely with our customers.
