Schindler Elevator Corporation Key Developments

Schindler Elevator to Provide Elevators for Comcast Innovation & Technology Center in Philadelphia

Schindler Elevator Corporation has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by L.F. Driscoll Construction Managers & Builders to supply and install 31 gearless Schindler 7000 high-rise elevators at Comcast Innovation and Technology Center, along with 11 mid-rise machine room-less elevators, two Schindler 330A hydraulic elevators, and 10 Schindler 9300AE escalators. The $1.2 billion, 59-story structure, in the Center City section of Philadelphia, will be a vertical stacked campus that includes 1.3 million square feet of office space and a 222-room Four Seasons Hotel. Once complete, the 1,121-foot tower will be the tallest building in the United States outside of New York and Chicago, as well as the larger private development project in the history of Pennsylvania. Moving occupants more efficiently throughout the tower and hotel will be the energy-efficient Schindler 7000 custom high-rise passenger elevators equipped with Schindler’s PORT Technology destination-dispatch system. The system has a two-way communication interface between occupants and the building’s environment and optimizes traffic flow while offering predictive call entry and personalized service. The PORT Technology’s patented access control uses RFID technology to play a significant role in managing and controlling access within the building.

Schindler Elevator Corporation Introduces Schindler 5500 Machine Room-Less Traction Elevator

Schindler Elevator Corporation announced the introduction of its Schindler 5500 machine room-less (MRL) traction elevator, delivering a seamless blend of efficiency, flexibility and performance for mid-rise buildings. The Schindler 5500 MRL, currently available in select North American markets, combines advanced features typically available only in high-rise buildings with proven space and energy saving features. The Schindler 5500 MRL takes configurability to a new level, uniquely combining performance, flexibility, sustainability and design for a wide range of applications. Schindler’s innovative PORT Technology destination- dispatching system is available as an option to enhance movement through the building. PORT Technology can combine personalized access with faster travel times by grouping passengers with similar destinations, and has traditionally been applied to buildings with higher rises. Freedom of design: Schindler 5500 comes standard with a large array of design choices and flexibility in hoistway configurations, delivering freedom of design to architects. An expansive selection of colors, materials, lighting, mirrors, handrails and fixtures permit the designer to create a unique elevator experience. Among these many choices are standard options including a full glass cab with glass doors and wall panels and integrated LED lighting. For a deeper look at the design options available, see the Schindler 5500 Design Brochure. Efficiency and Performance: With a lightweight, durable and flexible suspension traction media (STM) replacing conventional steel ropes, the elevator delivers a smooth ride, free of vibrations "all while saving energy, emitting minimal heat and running quietly. Schindler’s STM requires a much smaller sheave, meaning the system saves space and energy by using a smaller motor. Eliminating the machine room also saves valuable building space and shortens installation time. The highly adaptable system arrives at the building site in shipping modules optimized to ensure on-time delivery and efficient installation. With high performance comes greater sustainability. Sustainable features in the Schindler 5500 include: Power Factor 1 regenerative drives that use 30% less energy while producing energy that is returnable to a building’s power grid. LED lighting that lasts 20 times longer than standard light bulbs & consume less energy. New drive and traction configuration weighs up to 50% less than its predecessor, using less oil. 30-40% greater efficiency over standard systems with PORT Technology. All materials are made with highly-recyclable components.
