Reduce lift noise

Do you know where your lift's noise comes from? Usually, our lift's noise is caused by the gear drive machines, the guides' friction and poor damping of doors. The neighbours from homes adjoining the machine room are who suffer most from this inconvenience, yet solutions to this problem have multiple benefits that the entire community of owners will enjoy.

Reduce noise

Noisy lifts are one of the main sources of discomfort in residential buildings, whether they appear on occasions or are constant, as they negatively affect the neighbours’ quality of life, depriving them of their right to rest.

These annoying lift noises are a common problem (especially for neighbours that live next to the machine room), and they may be due to multiple causes: poor insulation, poor installation of some elements, wear and tear or even the risk of breakage of any of its components.


In addition, they not only cause discomfort. They can also be the prelude to an undesired stoppage or a major breakdown.


The best way to avoid (and, where applicable, prevent) any annoying noise from a lift is through a proper preventive and corrective maintenance carried out by a reliable and experienced company. At FAIN we advise you, with no strings attached, on the most suitable solutions to eliminate them. Your quality of life comes first!

Gearless machine with permanent magnets

Whether we install rubber buffers (the traditional damping system for lifts) or not, it is most likely that our system will continue to make more noise than desired. To avoid this problem, the ideal solution is to replace the system's drive group with a gearless system with a variable frequency drive.
Less consumption and less deterioration. The compact and highly durable design of these systems provide them a high level of energy efficiency.
They are also more efficient, so you will reduce consumption!

Variable frequency drive

By changing the frequency of the supply current, we achieve a more comfortable journey, reducing vibrations and noise and optimising energy consumption

Automatic lubricator

The lack of lubrication of the lift's guides can produce a very unpleasant noise, which at the same time is very easy to avoid if we install this system, whose refillable tank constantly lubricates them.
In addition: by reducing friction, we can optimise consumption and extend the guides' useful life

Automatic doors

Manual and semi-automatic doors are a problem in terms of accessibility. They are responsible for most of the malfunction notifications, and when they become misadjusted or lose damping, they become a nightmare for the neighbours that live near the affected door, whose jolts will cause more than one shock.
Renovate your system by installing automatic doors, and achieve: a quieter, more accessible, safer system with a longer service life
