Schindler Elevator Corporation Key Developments

Schindler Elevator Corporation Introduces its Schindler 3100 Machine Room-Less Traction Elevator

Schindler Elevator Corporation introduced its Schindler 3100 machine room-less traction elevator. The Schindler 3100 is an MRL specifically designed to replace hydraulic elevators for the low-rise commercial and multi-unit residential market in the U.S. Easy to order, simple to install, with space and energy savings and a smooth, quiet performance, the Schindler 3100 is the cost-effective choice for today’s two- to three-story buildings. The Schindler 3100 is designed to allow for more usable building and design space by eliminating the need for a machine room or a control closet. It fits seamlessly into the footprint of a hydraulic elevator design, yet provides the smooth, quiet operation of traction technology.

Schindler Elevator Corporation to Provide Elevators for Park Tower at Transbay in San Francisco

Schindler Elevator Corporation has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract with developer, The John Buck Company, to supply and install 20 elevators at Park Tower at Transbay, 18 of which will run on Schindler’s award winning PORT destination-dispatch technology. These elevators will supply Occupant Evacuation Operation (OEO) using enhanced integration with the fire-safety system for passenger egress during a fire scenario. The 43-story structure, adjacent to San Francisco’s Transbay Transit Center, will feature a unique design that incorporates multiple sky decks and 751,500 square feet of Class A++ office and high-end retail space. Once complete, the 605-foot tower will be the newest landmark on the San Francisco skyline offering breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the San Francisco bay. Park Tower at Transbay, located in the core of San Francisco’s most desirable submarket, will be the first to incorporate Schindler’s OEO solution by more closely interfacing with the building’s fire-safety system. Occupant Evacuation Operation is a non-mandatory code released in the United States that describes the use of elevators for passenger evacuation during a fire scenario. The use of these OEO elevators provides a means for a quicker evacuation process in the case of an emergency. Moving occupants more efficiently throughout the tower 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. It 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 7000 can improve building efficiency by: using permanent magnet motors and Power Factor 1 drives which reduce energy consumption by up to 35% and produce less heat than traditional drives; Re-generating energy back into the building’s electrical system; and using recovered energy to power other building demands such as lighting, air conditioning or other equipment.
