Vertical mobility with style

As a rule, you only spend a few seconds in a lift, so the design must win you over straight away. As, in spite of the short stay, it is a kind of space where you should feel comfortable. And this is precisely what Schindler Elevator Ltd. specialises in. It produces stylish, modern and innovative lifts. This top-quality design has recently been ideally extended with products from Pfleiderer.
Schindler is a Swiss corporation and is one of the world's largest manufacturers of elevators and escalators. They combine design and functionality in their elevators, combining style, colour and other options. The aim is an all-round comfortable and satisfactory transport. Beyond the basic requirement of a high transport capacity per unit of time, however, the sense of space, design and quiet running also play an important role so that the user feels comfortable while driving.
Depending on the area of application, the materials in the elevator are subject to heavy stress. The manufacturer always ensures that the products used are resistant to scratches, pressure and moisture. In addition, the materials must comply with special fire protection guidelines so that they can be used in elevators. Pfleiderer DecoBoard Pyroex is a flame retardant particleboard and is therefore ideal for use in elevators. Pfleiderer Duropal HPL Pyroex also has a flame retardant quality. And there is another reason why HPL is so popular in the elevator industry, because space and weight play an important role in the elevator cabins, which is why the light, thin HPL panels are very popular here. In this way, natural materials such as stone, wood and concrete, which would be unsuitable as raw materials, can also be recreated in the cabins.
The elevator industry is a very interesting and fast-growing market for Pfleiderer, since society is becoming increasingly comfortable and older as a result of demographic change. Schindler elevators are represented internationally, which is why they are always looking for reliable partners such as Pfleiderer, whose products are available worldwide.
