Schindler 7000 Impressive, powerful, and effective

Schindler 7000 high-rise solutions provide excellent performance, maximum flexibility, and innovative technologies for a premier passenger experience.

Beyond industry standards

Our Schindler 7000 combines excellent high-rise performance with maximum flexibility – for any height up to 500 m, speed up to 10.0 m/s, and in groups up to 8 cars*. This flexibility also includes the design, dimensions, configurations, and applications.

The Schindler 7000 is part of the new, modular-platform product range, perfectly matching the diverse demands of office buildings, hotels, residential, or mixed-use buildings.

* For projects beyond these specifications, please contact Schindler for more information.


The design phase starts with building planning, which is the basis for our advanced traffic simulation. We also talk about aesthetics: choose from Schindler standard decoration lines or go for a customized solution.


An intelligent technology based on 3D modeling, BIM (Building Information Modeling) provides traceability and insights throughout the project life cycle – planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance.

Traffic Simulation

The traffic analysis helps you to choose the ideal product or combination of products to handle the expected passenger traffic in your building.


Create the look and feel you like. Combine colors, materials, lighting, mirrors, handrails, and fixtures to achieve the ambiance that fits both your ideas and your building.


Schindler’s industry-leading new installation methods reduce construction preparation time while improving quality, safety, and efficiency on site.

Schindler SLIM

Schindler's SLIM (Scaffold Less Installation Method) provides a safe environment for our installation team, allowing the installation to start with a very high degree of independence regarding the builder's readiness.

Schindler CLIMB Lift

Schindler CLIMB Lift allows the permanent machine room and permanent elevator cars to be operational in considerably less time, increasing productivity, and contributing to project progress.

Schindler R.I.S.E

The pioneering Schindler double-deck elevators are now available as a standard option in the modular Schindler 7000 elevator system.

Benefits with Schindler double-deck solutions

Excellent ecological performance

Schindler’s sustainability policy is a commitment to reduce the environmental impact of our products and services continuously, across their entire life cycles. The Schindler 7000 elevator is a premium product in which all parts strive towards an eco-friendly goal, optimizing space and energy consumption.

Class A energy-efficiency rating

Improving energy efficiency is essential to reduce the environmental impact of elevators and the buildings they serve. Regenerative drive, LED lighting, and stand-by mode when the elevator is parked are standard eco-friendly features embedded in all Schindler 7000 elevators, achieving the highest energy efficiency rating class A according to ISO 25745-2*. 

Environmental Product Declarations (EPD)

To provide insight into the ecological performance of our elevators throughout their lives, we provide Environmental Product Declarations (EPD). Schindler has registered EPDs at the International EPD® System for all major elevator product lines, taking an important step further in the assessment of the environmental performance of our products, while underlining our continuous efforts towards sustainable solutions.

*The classification always refers to a specific customer configuration. Usage pattern, load capacity, customer specific options and site conditions influence the final rating.


Today, high-rise buildings demand their vertical transportation systems to be not only reliable and smart, but to encapsulate the most innovative concepts and technologies, to brace the buildings for the future.

With over 150 years of history, Schindler has highly advanced technologies and a rich portfolio in modernization projects worldwide.

Plan a customized phased modernization

Schindler offers a phased modernization approach which enables you to plan the scope of modernization to suit your project schedule and financial planning.

In many cases, a complete removal of the large old machines would be too costly and complicated. Often the most practical approach is to reuse an existing gearless machine, provided it is still in good working condition, but install a new drive inverter, which can offer an energy saving of up to 55%.

Modernize smartly with dismantlable machines

With Schindler’s innovative modernization solutions, new machines and equipment can be installed into the machine room without compromising the existing building layout.

Large machines can be meticulously dismantled to smaller parts, passing through existing pathways and reach the machine room with ease.

We minimize disruption to the building operation by scheduling on-site installation work to take place during non-office hours whenever possible.

Boost traffic performance with Schindler PORT

Buildings of any age can be updated to modern standards with Schindler PORT intelligent destination technology.

A Schindler PORT upgrade can be implemented as the first step of a more comprehensive modernization, enabling existing buildings to compete with newly constructed buildings.

The Schindler PORT Overlay solution would bridge the old control system with the new Schindler PORT system, bringing them under one control during the modernization process.
