There is nothing worse than unresponsive or badly-designed lift buttons that prevent users from reaching their destination. Not only does it make lift users frustrated but creates an unwanted negative impression of your building.

When it comes to installing a new lift or modernising an existing lift, property and building managers should consistently consider the most essential performance factors, all supporting the lift interface’s effectiveness. Here are a couple of examples:

Aesthetics & Usability

Both lift button design accuracies and faults are easily noticeable by building users. Due to this, property and building managers should carefully consider the choice of lift button interfaces as well as the finishes that would make a strong style and high-tech statement.

For example, the placement of the floor buttons should be in descending order, to mirror how the floors rise in the building and make it simpler for the users to find the right button promptly.

To support users with sight and hearing impairments or mobility issues, it is important for the buttons to be tactile and at a specified height that is in line with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act and Equality Act 2010.
