Times Square - Modern and versatile

The optional wave design, a rounded transition from ceiling to rear wall, gives your car a unique appearance. An additional highlight is a gold or silver shimmer from our metallic glass collection or a brushed bronze or satin grey finish on stainless steel.

Sunset Boulevard - Inspirational

Aim high for passenger excitement in upmarket locations like hotels, clubs and restaurants. The combination of premium quality materials, captivating patterns and splashy color gradients make this car a unique experience. Lighting and ceiling concepts create a fascinating atmosphere.

Operating panels and options

Operating panels

Make your elevator easy to operate for all passengers. Energy efficient operating panels all come in high quality materials and finishing. As an option, elegant full-glass fixtures provide the finishing touch to the car interior. High-resolution and easy-to-read indicators make the ride even more enjoyable. 

Mirrors

Mirrors always add a special sense of space to rooms and buildings. In order to give your car more appeal and depth, one sidewall or the rear wall can be provided with a full-height safety-glass mirror.

Handrails

Even though your elevator travels smoothly, handrails convey a feeling of security. Stainless steel handrails match the interior and shapes of your car and can be mounted to the side and rear walls. Illuminated handrails and skirting enhance the overall ambiance of the car as well.
