You may wonder what happens with your lift if the power goes out and some people may even find this a very scary thought, especially the idea of being stuck inside an elevator for hours. However, most lifts and elevators are equipped with additional safety systems to avoid just that. If you are not sure about what safety systems your specific lift has, contact the lift manufacturer.
All Cibes lift models are equipped with a battery backup for emergency lowering as standard to make sure that you do not get trapped inside the lift in case of a power outage.
What happens with your lift if the power goes out while you are travelling with the lift is the following:
- The lift stops.
- The battery back up kicks in.
- Now, all you need to do is press any destination button on the control panel.
- The lift will descend to the next floor so that you can evacuate without outside help.
