Schindler 1000 Simple, reliable, and compact

Make elevating simple with the Schindler 1000. Easy to choose, easy to plan, easy to own, and easy to use. Designed to serve low- to mid-rise residential buildings, comfortably, quietly, efficiently, and with style.

Swiss precision, value engineered

The Schindler 1000 is part of our new product family, based on our modular platform of high-quality components that deliver smoother, quieter, and more reliable performance.

Quality through simplicity

Schindler 1000 has standardised components and pre-engineered solutions ensuring reliable performance at superior quality standards. This brings benefits throughout the entire life cycle of your lift: easy maintenance, high availability and uptime.

Smooth operation

Schindler 1000 features a gearless drive system with Suspension Traction Media (STM) to ensure efficient operation and maximum uptime. Combined with our new, lightweight lift car and upgraded installation system, the ride experience for passengers is not only smoother, but quieter too.

Innovative drive technology

Regenerative drive technology is standard throughout our new modular product family, including Schindler 1000. This reduces energy consumption by 30% compared to conventional technology.

Environmentally sound

Improving energy efficiency is essential to reduce the environmental impact of lifts and the buildings they serve. Eco-friendly features, such as regenerative drive, LED lighting and stand-by mode while parked, are standard in all Schindler 1000 lifts, achieving the highest energy-efficiency rating class A according to ISO 25745-2*.

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

Key figures

Capacity 320 - 1000 kg
Travel height Up to 34 m

Speed 0.63 - 1.0 m/s
Drive System Machine room-less, eco-friendly regenerative drive technology, frequency controlled
Group size Up to 2 cars

Minimum space for maximum use

Schindler 1000 benefits from our machine-room-less (MRL) traction system and compact door drive to optimise space and reduce construction costs.

Machine-room-less design

All main components sit in the shaft, saving construction cost and giving architects more space to work with. Schindler 1000 allows a larger car to be fitted into a standard shaft, with reduced headroom and pit dimensions.

Reduced headroom

Selection of door sizes depending on your choice of car size

Ensuring adaptation to different code and building requirements.

Smaller motor and traction sheave

Suspension Traction Media (STM) saves shaft space and energy by using a smaller motor and sheave. STM is provided with halogen-free cabling and wiring.

Built-in inspection and test panel

The inspection and test panel is designed to be incorporated into a standard door frame. This solution simplifies lift installation, provides easy access, and saves space. The controller is available with halogen-free cabling and wiring loom as an option.

Interior design lines

Navona - Functional and durable

Introduce clarity and comfort in your car with the robust Navona design line. Fresh colours, durable accessories, and the option of five different floors make Navona an excellent choice for residential applications. Elegant stainless steel options are also available for the rear and side walls.

Panels, handrails, mirrors, and other accessories

Linea 100

We've designed our operating panels and fixtures to be more ergonomic, making the passenger experience more intuitive, smooth, and error-free. The Linea 100 series uses low-energy multiprocessor controls and operating panels fashioned in stylish tempered safety glass.

Mirrors and handrails

Handrails convey a feeling of security. Schindler stainless steel handrails are designed to blend with car interiors, shapes and textures, and can be mounted to the side and rear walls. A range of handrails is available.

Mirrors heighten the sense of space, depth and comfort in lifts. Your lift can be fitted with a half-height safety-glass mirror on the side or rear wall of the car. To comply with EN81-70 both a mirror and handrail are required.

Landing doors

How your lift design harmonises with your building can enhance passenger response to the overall décor concept. We offer a full range of colours to help you fulfil your building’s design potential.

Schindler lifts designed for next-generation technologies

Benefit from our tools, solutions and latest innovations to support you through the entire product life cycle of your lift. Our lifts are designed to use state-of-the-art technologies from planning to operation.

Plan & Design online

With just a few clicks, you can plan the right lift for your building. Our online Plan & Design tool provides you with recommendations, comprehensive product specifications, and detailed layout drawings.

Innovation in installation

Schindler’s new INEX (Installation Excellence) system reduces construction preparation and resources for our customers, as well as improving safety and efficiency on site.

Smart operation - switching to digital

All our new lifts come fully enabled for Schindler Ahead – our IoT (Internet of Things) portfolio of services. With Schindler Ahead, we make sure that our customers can step confidently into the digital era.

  • Maximise uptime with Ahead Remote Monitoring
    With digital connectivity, issues can be detected and addressed well before service is affected. This helps facilities take timely action to minimise or even avoid downtime. Schindler Ahead maximises uptime thanks to instant, accurate insights. 
  • Real-time insights with Ahead ActionBoard
    Schindler Ahead ActionBoard provides operational, performance, and commercial information in real time, giving customers clear, instant oversight of their entire lift and escalator portfolio.
