Your building’s greatest asset is its people. As the world constantly changes, so must our technology. The Gen2’s enhanced design keeps us moving forward, providing faster and smoother journeys through all buildings. Experience every ride in genuine comfort, with reliability at the heart of our performance.

Space-saving design

The Gen2 system's compact lift components fit inside the hoistway and eliminate the need for a machine room. This saves construction costs and frees up valuable floor space for your design vision.
