The lift shaft descends quite a lot further than the Scanner Room and Supercomputer Room. There is a ladder in the shaft for emergency usage, and various vents along the side of the shaft that Team Lyoko have used in the past. As seen in The Trap, the Seine flows right by the factory lift's shaft.
The elevator can also be shut off via the Supercomputer but it only lasts for 5-6 minutes. Jeremie has used this several times in order to keep X.A.N.A. possessed people at bay.
X.A.N.A. used the Factory Lift in The Trap to trap Yumi, Ulrich and Sissi by damaging the elevator, causing running water to flow via the shaft. Before it was fully flooded, Yumi managed to escape from the elevator and climb the latter back up to the Lab. Before they both drowned, the tower was deactivated and a Return to the Past saved Ulrich and Sissi. In A Lack of Goodwill, a X.A.N.A. possessed William uses the Factory Lift in order to get into the Supercomputer Room and possibly shut off the Supercomputer. Jeremie stopped him before he could do any serious damage.
