Modernisation solutions: Efficiency and flexibility on every scale

Efficient modernization solution: meet TWIN

You can count on our exceptionally broad range of support, from smaller upgrade projects to full replacement systems, to deliver maximum quality and results.

Our work starts with a professional analysis and, together with you, an inspection of the elevator. This allows our specialists to provide detailed advice on your modernisation options while taking all of your individual needs into account.

When a simple upgrade is required, our re|new packages provide a fast and easy way to keep your equipment up to date.

For partial modernisation, solutions start with individual components, and even in the event of a replacement system, we enable you to take a flexible approach to the building interface. This way, no dust is created, a structural engineer's services are not required, and noisy construction work can be avoided.

In some cases, the entire elevator must be replaced. Our engineers will make sure to build a solution perfectly fitting your specific situation.

  • Safety and reliability upgrades
  • A new look for the cabin and entrance
  • Upgrades required by the authorities
  • Enhanced comfort

You can count on us to identify and install the most efficient solution in your building. Our focus is always on perfecting the interaction between new and existing components. Even the smallest measures equip your system with new functionalities, the highest reliability and enhanced safety.

Full replacement

Compact. Adaptable. Powerful.

If you’re replacing your old elevator system, we offer a wide range of options with or without a machine room.

The challenge with replacements is that every elevator shaft is different; door spaces and ceiling openings vary from building to building. To maintain your building's support structure, we strive to keep the ceiling openings and door lintel supports as they are, and to use the existing guide rail fastening systems, if possible.

Replacement systems

We take ‘made to measure’ very seriously. Our system solutions, make the best possible use of the existing shaft and avoid additional masonry, cutting and painting. This not only limits your costs, it also reduces the amount of dust and noise produced by the modernisation.

Our solutions range from very small elevator systems to our high-end TWIN® system. The latter offers entirely new possibilities for expanding transport capacity within the same shaft footprint.

TWIN®

TWIN®

Fast. Space-saving. Innovative.

Wherever existing elevators have reached their capacity and there is too little space to install additional ones, our space-saving TWIN® innovation is the ideal solution. It features two independent cabins, one above the other, in a single elevator shaft.
