Plan & Design

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.

Smooth operation

A gearless drive system with Suspension Traction Media (STM) ensures efficient operation and long-term availability for the Schindler 1000.

Quality through simplicity

The Schindler 1000's standardized components and pre-engineered solutions ensure reliable performance with superior quality standards.

Innovative drive technology

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

Environmentally sound

Regenerative drives, LED lighting, and standby mode while parked are standard eco-friendly features in all Schindler 1000 elevators, helping it 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. 

Key figures

Speed 0.63 - 1.0 m/s
Drive System Machine room-less, eco-friendly regenerative drive technology, frequency controlled

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 the main components sit in the shaft, saving construction cost and giving architects more space to work with. Larger cars can be fitted into a standard shaft space, with reduced headroom space and pit depth requirements.

Optimized 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

Introduce clarity and comfort in your car with the robust Navona 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

We've designed our operating panels and fixtures to be more ergonomic, making the passenger experience more intuitive, smooth, and error-free. The Linea 100 series uses 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.

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 rear wall of the car.

Landing doors

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