With its Swiss quality, Schindler's reputation stands tall in the lift industry as one of the top global leaders.

Across the globe, the company has a substantial employee base of 70,000 individuals, spread over 100 countries. 

Schindler's story in Singapore dates back to the 1960s. Today, Schindler continues to deliver on its commitment to excellence, providing innovative solutions tailored to the needs of the Singapore market, and maintaining a firm foothold in the industry.

What types of lifts does Schindler offer in Singapore?

As a major player in the elevator sector, Schindler's product ensemble is as diverse as it is innovative, adapting to different building types and requirements. Whether you're operating a commercial building or a residential complex, there are a multitude of Schindler products that are tailored to suit your needs. 

Schindler's high-capacity lifts, such as the Schindler 7000, fully cater to high rise commercial and residential buildings with robust performance and fast operation 

Unifying form and function, the Schindler 3000 stands as a versatile lift solution. Its flexibility allows for customisation of car, door, and shaft dimensions to fit any building requirement.

Meanwhile, the Schindler 5000 infuses the latest technological innovations for expedited handling of increased passenger volumes. Every component and material utilised in this model is also selected for environmental reasons and superior performance.

Apart from passenger lifts, Schindler offers specially designed freight lifts for heavy goods. The Schindler 2600, for instance, has been expertly designed to streamline transportation requirements in warehouses, shopping centres and industrial buildings.

What unique technologies are used in Schindler lifts?

Technology lies at the heart of Schindler's innovation strategy. As a Schindler lift owner, these are some of the technologies that might be enhancing the way your lifts function:

  • Schindler PORT Technology: The Schindler myPORT app makes movement within a building smooth and secure—users are able to call for lifts and visitor management can be done directly via the app. On the other hand, the PORT ECO Mode is an energy-saving feature which can reduce power usage by up to 40%, fine-tuning lift service to accommodate traffic demands.

  • Robotic Installation System for Elevators (Schindler R.I.S.E): A game-changer, the Schindler R.I.S.E system can perform lift installation on its own without human intervention. Although everything is monitored by a camera, there’s always a Schindler R.I.S.E Operator to supervise the whole process on site.

  • Schindler Digital Media Services: These services go hand in hand with modern lifts to deliver high-quality infotainment and advertisement solutions. The Schindler Ahead SmartMirror, for instance, works as both a mirror and a multimedia screen. When not displaying content such as ads, news, or facility updates, it functions as a regular mirror. The display creates a virtual 3D effect, ensuring viewers stay engrossed.

How can I extend the lifespan of my Schindler lift?

To ensure that your Schindler lift lasts as long as possible, it's crucial to have a regular lift maintenance schedule and to modernise your lift when needed. 

As a lift owner, it's vital that you acquaint yourself with the 2024 Maintenance Control Plan (MCP) by BCA Singapore. This framework focuses on a life cycle-centric approach, incorporating both preventative and predictive lift maintenance. 

Embracing this framework not only improves the longevity of your lift, but also lowers the risk of unexpected breakdowns and subsequent high repair costs.

How often should Schindler lifts be serviced?

Lift maintenance is a compulsory requirement in Singapore, and all lift owners need to hire a registered lift service contractor—or incur penalties up to $5,000.

Registered lift contractors such as Hin Chong can be found in the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) directory of registered contractors & licensed builders.

The frequency of lift maintenance should be carried out as follows:

  • Lifts in residential buildings, vertical platform lifts, and stairlifts should be maintained every quarter or as frequently as recommended by Schindler, whichever is more frequent.

  • All other types of lifts should be maintained on a monthly basis or as often as recommended by Schindler, whichever is more frequent. 

If you're a Schindler lift owner in Singapore, it's essential to place a strong emphasis on its upkeep and safety. Feel free to reach out to us for a no-obligation lift evaluation and learn how we can cater to your lift maintenance requirements.
