Stadiums, arenas and convention centers are in the business of moving masses of people quickly and safely – from moving fans to their seats to moving players on the fields to moving crowds through exhibitions.
With thousands of fans gathering at any one sporting or entertainment event, stadiums and arenas require mobility solutions to move them efficiently and safely. Schindler is up to the task, with durable, efficient products and services.
Schindler products and services efficiently move masses through exhibitions, arenas and stadiums all over the world. As varied as the locations and configurations of these venues, so are the mobility solutions we provide. Whether meeting rigorous seismic requirements for stadiums located in earthquake zones, tight installation turnaround schedules, or providing around the clock service… Schindler’s solutions deliver reliable mobility.
Schindler is proud of its partnership with Spectrum Center, home of the Charlotte Hornets. Spectrum Center is the premier venue for sports, globally-recognized concerts, family shows and special events in the Carolinas.
Schindler is excited to be partnered with Prudential Center - one of the top venues in the US for concerts, shows and sporting events. Schindler has been the elevator and escalator provider for Prudential Center for the past decade and looks forward to continuing this relationship into the future.
The Dallas Cowboys football team's home in Arlington,Texas is one big venue. With a seating capacity of 80,000 and standing room that can bring the total number of spectators to over 100,000, Cowboys Stadium is the largest domed stadium in the world. And the superlatives don’t end there. It contains the world’s largest video screen, a 160-by-72-foot 600-ton colossus hovering from one 20-yard line to the other.
The stadium also boasts the largest column-free interior, with a pair of 300-foot-high arches that run from one end of the dome to the other with 180-foot-high glass doors at each end. Schindler provided 22 escalators and 18 elevators.
Schindler provided the escalators for the 80,000-seat “Bird’s Nest” National Stadium which was a centerpiece of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing. Sixteen Schindler escalators transported spectators within the National Stadium itself. Schindler escalators were specified for their reliability and because of their ability to move huge volumes of traffic.
