TK Elevator, hailing from German engineering excellence, was born from a rich heritage of innovation and commitment to quality. The brand established itself in Singapore in 2000, and has a strong presence in both residential and commercial properties.

Today, TK Elevator continues to redefine the elevator experience, with businesses in over 100 nations and a workforce of over 50,000.

What is the range of products offered by TK Elevator?

TK Elevator provides a broad spectrum of high-quality lift products that combine German engineering excellence and innovative design. Models available in Singapore include:

  • Zeta300: A high-speed elevator solution best suited for tall commercial buildings

  • Meta200: Ideal for medium-sized residential and commercial properties, where there is equal focus on design and performance.

  • Enta200: A machine room-less lift, perfect for lower height properties like upscale residential buildings

  • Enta300: A machine-room-less elevator that works for both low to mid rise buildings. Thanks to its heavy-duty properties and high-performance capabilities, this lift can be tailored according to specific requirements. 

  • TWIN: A true reflection of German engineering prowess, the TWIN model features two lift cabins in a single shaft. It's a popular choice for high-rise buildings due to its brilliant design and high performance.

What are the notable technologies used in TK Elevator lifts?

TK Elevator lifts are feature-packed with state-of-the-art technology, designed to improve your journey's efficiency and comfort. Here are some of the notable technologies that the brand has incorporated in their lifts:

  • Agile Destination Selection Control: Designed to optimise lift travel times, the system allocates the most efficient lift to get passengers to their destination swiftly. It's a game-changer for busy buildings where lift efficiency is key.

  • Automatic Rescue Device (ARD): This intelligent device automatically takes over in the event of a power failure, safely transporting passengers to the nearest floor and opening the doors to allow exit.

  • MULTI: This rope-free system allows lifts to not only move vertically, but also horizontally, providing unprecedented flexibility and efficiency. Its unique design drastically reduces the lift's footprint, freeing up valuable space in a building's layout. 

How can I extend the lifespan of my TK Elevator lift?

If you are a TK Elevator lift owner in Singapore, it's important to expect and be prepared for issues that may arise due to the lift's regular use.

Keeping your TK Elevator lift running efficiently and optimally requires a regular lift maintenance routine. Equally significant is to modernise your lift as and when it becomes necessary.

Abiding by 2024's Maintenance Control Plan (MCP) by BCA Singapore will help ensure that potential problems are identified promptly and duly rectified even before they can hamper the smooth operation of your lift.

How often should a TK Elevator lift be serviced?

As a lift owner in Singapore, you're required to appoint a registered lift service contractor for your lift maintenance work. By disregarding this, you may be opening yourself up to penalties that can go up to $5,000. 

You can engage registered contractors such as Hin Chong, listed in the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) directory of registered contractors & licensed builders.

With regards to how often lift maintenance should occur:

  • Home lifts, vertical platform lifts, and stairlifts should follow the maintenance schedule recommended by TK Elevator if provided, or otherwise, undergo servicing every three months—whichever is more frequent

  • The maintenance frequency for all other lifts should align with the recommendations from TK Elevator if available, or the lifts should be serviced on a monthly basis—whichever is more frequent

If you're a owner of a TK Elevator lift in Singapore, it's essential to put safety and maintenance at the top of your list. Consider reaching out tous—we offer a free, no-obligation lift appraisal. It’s a great way to understand how we can accommodate your lift maintenance needs.
