Schindler 1000 Plus - Swiss precision, value engineered

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.

Value for money

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

Smooth ride experience

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

Innovative drive technology

Regenerative drive technology is standard throughout our new modular product family, including 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 stand-by mode while parked are standard in all Schindler 1000 Plus elevators. This makes it possible 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.

Schindler 1000 Plus - Compact design

Compact design

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

Optimal use of existing space

Machine-room-less design
All the main components sit in the shaft, eliminating the need for a machine room and eliminating complex access or creating space for other usage.

Reduced headroom
System designed to require minimal headroom to fit in the existing shaft headroom.

Smaller motor and traction sheave
Suspension Traction Media (STM) saves shaft space and energy 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 adaption to different code and building requirements.
