Schindler 1000 Plus Simple, reliable, and compact

Elevator replacement made easy: easy to choose, easy to plan, easy to own, and easy to use. We designed the Schindler 1000 Plus elevator to fulfill the unique requirements of residential buildings with comfort, efficiency, and style.

Swiss precision, value engineered

Schindler 1000 Plus is part of our new product family, a modular platform of high-quality components that delivers smoother, quieter and more reliable performance. It’s designed to be highly efficient - both economically and ecologically.

Reliable operation

The Schindler 1000 Plus’s standardized components and pre-engineered solutions ensure reliable performance with the highest quality standards. This benefits the entire life cycle of your elevator with easy maintenance, high availability, and minimum downtime.

Smooth ride experience

The Schindler 1000 Plus features a gearless drive system with Suspension Traction Media (STM) to ensure efficient operation and long-term availability. Combined with our new, lightweight elevator car and upgraded fixation system, this provides passengers with both a smoother and quieter ride.

Innovative drive technology

Regenerative drive technology is standard throughout our modular product family, including the Schindler 1000 Plus. This reduces travel energy by 30% compared to conventional technology.

Environmentally sound

Improving energy efficiency is essential for reducing the environmental impact of elevators and the buildings they serve. Eco-friendly features such as regenerative drive, LED lighting, and standby mode while parked, are standard in all Schindler 1000 Plus elevators. This makes it possible to achieve the highest energy-efficiency rating class according to ISO 25745-2*.  

*The classification always refers to a specific customer configuration. Usage pattern, load capacity, customer specific options and site conditions influence the final rating.

Optimal use of existing space

Schindler 1000 Plus benefits from the MRL (machine room-less) layout, traction machines, and compact components that are included throughout our modular product family. This optimizes the use of shaft space and reduces building adaptation costs.

Machine-room-less design

All the key components sit in the shaft, eliminating the need for a machine room and eliminating complex access while freeing up space for other uses.

Reduced headroom

The system requires minimal headroom to fit in the existing shaft headroom.

Smaller motor and traction sheave

Our Suspension Traction Media (STM) saves energy and shaft space by using a smaller motor and sheave.

Built-in controller on landing door

The Schindler 1000 Plus controller panel is integrated into the landing door frame for simple installation and maintenance access.

Wide selection of door sizes for a seamless fit

Ensuring easy adaption to fit different code and building requirements.

Interior design lines

Navona - Functional and durable

Introduce precision and comfort in your car with this robust design line. Fresh colors, durable accessories, and the option of five different floors make Navona an excellent choice for residential applications. Elegant stainless steel options are also available for the rear and side walls.

Panels, handrails, mirrors and other accessories

Linea 100

Our operating panels and fixtures are ergonomically designed to make the passenger experience intuitive, smooth and error-free. Linea 100 incorporates low-energy multiprocessor controls and operating panels fashioned in stylish, tempered safety glass.

Mirrors and handrails

Handrails convey a feeling of security. Schindler stainless steel handrails are designed to blend with car interiors, shapes and textures, and can be mounted to the side and rear walls. Available in curved, straight and straight with rounded ends.

Mirrors heighten the sense of space, depth and comfort in elevators. Your elevator can be fitted with a half-height safety-glass mirror on the side or rear wall of the car.

Landing doors

The way your elevator design harmonizes with your building can enhance your tenants’ response to the overall building décor concept. We offer a full range of colors to help you realize your building’s full design potential.

Designed for next-generation technologies

Benefit from our tools, solutions, and latest innovations for improved equipment reliability, uptime, safety, and an all-new superior passenger experience. Our elevators use state-of-the-art technologies from planning to operation.

Innovation in installation

Schindler’s new INEX (Installation Excellence) method not only reduces construction preparation and resources for our customers, but also improves safety and efficiency on site.

Digital solutions tailored to your needs

All our new elevators are fully enabled for Schindler Ahead – our digital portfolio for smart elevators. Designed on the principles of IoT (Internet of Things) and machine learning, it analyzes cloud-based data to deliver improved uptime, insights and convenience.

Smart operation – clarity and convenience

Digital connectivity allows for better maintenance and management, while creating higher levels of comfort for passengers. With Schindler Ahead, we make sure that our customers can enjoy the benefits of the digital era with confidence.
