Schindler 1000 Simple, reliable, and compact

Make elevating simple with the Schindler 1000. Easy to choose, easy to plan, easy to own, and easy to use. Designed to serve low- to mid-rise residential buildings, comfortably, quietly, efficiently, and with style.

Swiss precision, value engineered

The Schindler 1000 is part of our new product family, based on our modular platform of high-quality components that deliver smoother, quieter, and more reliable performance.

Quality through simplicity

Schindler 1000’s standardized components and pre-engineered solutions ensure reliable performance at superior quality standards. This brings benefits throughout the entire life cycle of your elevator: easy maintenance, high availability and minimum downtime.

Smooth operation

Schindler 1000 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, the ride experience for passengers is not only smoother, but quieter, too.

Innovative drive technology

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

Environmentally sound

Improving energy efficiency is essential to reduce the environmental impact of elevators and the buildings they serve. Regenerative drive, LED lighting and stand-by mode while parked, are standard eco-friendly features in all Schindler 1000 elevators, aiming to achieve the highest energy-efficiency rating class A 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.

Minimum space for maximum use

Schindler 1000 benefits from our MRL (machine-room-less) traction systems and compact door drives to optimize shaft space, reducing construction costs and leaving more space for tenants.

Machine-room-less design

All main components sit in the shaft, saving construction cost and giving architects more space to work with. Schindler 1000 allows a larger car to be fitted into a standard shaft space, with reduced headroom space and pit depth requirements.

Reduced headroom

This makes installation highly flexible.

Selection of door sizes depending on your choice of car size

Ensuring adaption to different code and building requirements.

Smaller motor and traction sheave

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

Built-in inspection and test panel

The inspection and test panel is built directly into a standard door frame. This solution simplifies elevator installation, provides easy access, and saves space.

Interior design lines

Navona - Functional and durable

Clarity 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 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 curved ends layouts.

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

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

Schindler elevators designed for next-generation technologies

Benefit from our tools, solutions and latest innovations to support you through the entire product life cycle of your elevator. Our elevators are designed to 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, it also improves safety and efficiency on site.

Our autonomous self-climbing robot system – Schindler’s Robotic Installation System for Elevators (Schindler R.I.S.E) – will enhance quality and speed of construction while maintaining safety on site.

Smart operation – switching to digital

All our new elevators are fully enabled for Schindler Ahead – our IoT (Internet of Things) portfolio of services. With Schindler Ahead, we make sure that our customers can step confidently into the digital era.

  • Maximize uptime with Ahead Remote Monitoring
    With digital connectivity, issues can be detected and addressed well before service is affected. This helps facilities take timely action to minimize or even avoid downtime. Schindler Ahead maximizes uptime thanks to instant, accurate insights.
  • Real-time insights with Ahead ActionBoard
    Schindler Ahead ActionBoard provides operational, performance and commercial information in real time, giving customers clear, instant oversight of their entire elevator and escalator portfolio.
  • IoT enabled units ready for the future
