TWIN elevators for hospital in South Korea
Much shorter waiting times after modernization by ThyssenKrupp Elevator
ThyssenKrupp Elevator is the only manufacturer to offer a system with two cabs running independently in the same shaft. Each cab has its own counterweight and separate safety and drive equipment - but both cabs use the same guide rails and shaft doors. Instead of increasing capacity through modernization with TWIN elevators, it is also possible to reduce the number of elevator shafts required. The freedup space can then be used, for example, to lay IT cables or install an air conditioning system.
Whether it's a new installation or a modernization project - architects and building owners receive optimum support from ThyssenKrupp Elevator advisers in planning the most effective transportation strategy. Advanced analysis and simulation techniques are used to calculate future demand, delivering vital facts for forwardlooking solutions.
TWIN elevators are already being used successfully in buildings in the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Russia and South Korea. Further systems are being installed or planned in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, South Korea and Australia.
