When designing mobility solutions for healthcare facilities reliability is paramount. Schindler products are designed to make patients feel comfortable and safe. And they make building managers happy by operating with maximum efficiency and low power consumption.
Schindler’s bed elevator is designed especially for healthcare, retirement and beauty spa facilities. It’s not only durable and attractive. It’s also large enough for patients and equipment, and it’s easy to clean. And special control options for emergency services and cleaning staff are available as well.
Healthcare facilities are sensitive environments full of people. For patient transport, accuracy in elevator travel and stop-leveling is crucial to comfort. Schindler elevator doors open accurately every time. Expertly applied Swiss precision for this highly demanding environment.
Moving patients around a hospital needs to be done efficiently and safely. Schindler installed eleven heavy-duty, custom modular elevators and two escalators at Wellington Regional Hospital for this exact purpose.
Three 1600kg-capacity passenger lifts and several 1750kg-2500kg bed/passenger lifts were included in the project. In addition a priority service function was installed which allows authorised personnel to take control of the lift and go to any floor, including the heli-pad, in case of emergencies.
