Elevator modernization & upgrades

Our proven products and installation process can help improve your elevator's reliability, performance, and aesthetics. Based on our over 150 years of experience, we have developed modernization solutions to target the differing age, technical needs, and usage of the elevators in operation today.

Repair or modernization? Giving your elevator new life

Like any technical product, elevators are also subject to a life cycle. After commissioning, regular maintenance, and repairs, a Schindler modernization will help ensure that your elevators continue to perform optimally for years to come. In contrast to a repair, which offers a 1:1 replacement of components, a modernization upgrades components to bring your elevator up to a higher standard. 

From design through installation, and on through service and modernization, our professionals are there throughout the lifecycle of your elevator.

Prepare for the future today. Benefits of a Schindler modernization.

Reliability

Elevators enabled with intelligent electronic diagnostics and remote monitoring help to eliminate the unpredictability associated with older installations and improve the performance of your system.

Availability

Maintenance-friendly components and replacement of obsolete technologies reduce the likelihood of equipment downtime.

Sustainability

Upgraded components and the latest sustainable functions help to reduce the energy consumption of your equipment.

Technology

A modernization helps to enable the latest digital innovations and new technologies to improve the management and maintenance of your equipment into the future.


Our Schindler Modernization solutions

Thanks to our years of experience, our Swiss-precision engineering, and our globally renowned expertise, we have designed the best elevator modernization solutions to address the particular requirements and the unique challenges faced during an elevator modernization.

Elevating energy efficiency

Green buildings play a vital role in shaping the future of construction and sustainable cities. With a smaller environmental footprint, green buildings are one of the solutions proven to be effective in the fight against global climate change.

Our Schindler modernization solutions have been developed to improve the sustainability of the overall elevator system, reducing energy consumption by up to 40%*. Features such as standby mode in the controller, regenerative drive technology, and improved control functions support the energy efficiency of your building. Integrating the latest digital technologies into your existing elevator also reduces the carbon emissions necessary to maintain and service it.

* Depending on the configuration of your Schindler modernization solution and the existing installation.


Plans tailored to your budget

Schindler modernization packages not only offer better reliability and performance, but it also adds value to your existing investment. At Schindler, we can tailor our modernization package and the installation timeframe to your budget. This enables you to financially plan for the necessary upgrades of your elevator - either all at once or distributed over time.

For customers with a larger portfolio of units, we can provide a Schindler Capital Plan. This plan details the best modernization solution for each piece of equipment in your portfolio, a projected timeline for the works and the estimated cost over 5+ years. Let us give you peace of mind with our Schindler modernization planning.

Working with you every step of the way

We will partner with you to find the best mobility solution for your facility. By checking the health of your existing equipment, we can determine what solution is the right one for you.

A Schindler modernization can be done quickly. We’ll aim to limit required building works, where possible, and endeavor to keep any noise, disruption, or dirt to a minimum – always showing the utmost respect for your building and tenants.

After a Schindler ReNew modernization, your equipment becomes easier to service and troubleshoot. The newly connected elevators enable 24/7 intelligent auto callback service and maintenance. This can reduce downtime by up to 34%*.

* Compared to non-connected units.
