Low Noise

Low-noise gearless machine

Mounted on rubber isolation pads, the low-noise gearless machine reduces vibration and minimizes noise in adjacent rooms.

Coated Steel Belts

Coated steel belts

Our patented smooth polyurethane coated steel belts last twice as long as conventional steel ropes, without any lubrication.

Generating energy

We’ve designed this innovative elevator to generate energy when climbing empty or descending. You’ll soon notice the savings on your energy bills.

An exclusive in-cab service

When you chose Gen2 Switch, you get our Digital Multiscreen display as standard. It’s a unique audiovisual intercom that acts as a reassuring videophone in the event of emergencies and a bold, clear digital indicator of elevator position and direction, plus other performance details. Passengers can also enjoy content such as music, news, advertising or messages directly from building owners.

Design that evokes

You can select rich textures and classic materials form our exclusive design packages. Enhance the experience for every passenger with more than 400,000 custom options. Creativity knows no boundaries. Explore these options through our CabCreate™ design portal.
