Gen2® modernisation

Transform your building

The latest and best where it counts

The Gen2 system revolutionised the lift industry by using new design and technology to transform performance, reliability, safety and aesthetics. Now it can bring all this to your existing building with the minimum of disruption.

The future awaits

Modernise with Gen2 technology

No matter the building, our Gen2™ Mod offers a custom solution tailored to fit even the most challenging framework conditions, allowing you to transform old elevators into a state-of-the-art transportation unit.

Gen2 Mod by Otis is designed to fit almost any traction elevator configuration, regardless of component arrangement or machine room location.


Need more space?

Upgrade to our Gen2™ Machine-Roomless Elevator

With Gen2™ Mod MRL the former machine room will be vacant and can be used by you as (rentable) store or utility room, parking lot or any other purpose you have in mind.


Performance you can rely on

Combining new thinking with the best engineering, the Gen2 system offers incredibly low callback rates – 50 percent lower than your current system. In operation, our patented coated steel belts are far smoother and quieter than traditional systems. From our doors to the closed-loop operator, everything is extremely quiet, safe and reliable.

Elements of innovation

ReGen drive re-uses energy usually wasted as heat, so there’s less need for cooling.

No lubrication

Patented coated steel belts and sealed bearings never need lubrication.

Otis Pulse

LED fixtures

LEDs mean lower energy consumption.

Otis Pulse

Sleep mode

For optimal efficiency, light, fan and control system shut down when not needed.

Working for you, even if the power fails

The Gen2 Life system’s battery-powered Gen2 Switch™ technology option enables operation during a power failure for as many as 100 runs. Powered with 230V single phase power from the grid or from renewable energy sources, the system requires less installed power than a household microwave.

Explore the exceptional

We looked long and hard at everything that matters in elevator design, from intuitive technology and quality engineering to easy installation and peace-of-mind maintenance. The result is the Gen2 system.
