Enjoy a high ride quality with the Schindler 5000

Thanks to our high-quality technology and installation methodologies, Schindler lifts generate minimal noise. Most of the noise created by our lifts does not exceed 50 – 60 dB (A) – equivalent to  calming birdsong.

Enhance your building's performance

Our Schindler 5000 is designed to blend seamlessly into your building. Flexible car sizes, door dimensions, controller options, and energy-saving features enable the Schindler 5000 to adapt to a wide range of projects.


Adaptable design

All the main components sit in the shaft, saving construction cost and giving architects more space to work within their design. Flexible counterweight positioning allows for perfect space utilisation and maximised rentable area, while reduced headroom space and pit depth minimises the lift footprint.


Energy-efficient solutions

A lubrication-free, gearless machine provides a smooth ride quality. Permanent magnet technology and a stable start without high peak current supports better energy efficiency.


Flexible system

The Schindler 5000 features a flexible design with a multitude of car widths and depths available - in 50 mm increments. Car heights are scalable in 100 mm increments, up to 2800 mm and adjustable doors are available in 100 mm increments, with widths from 800 to 1200 mm and heights up to 2400 mm.


Future-ready, secure technology

A Schindler 5000 controller supports the digital commissioning and enhanced maintenance of your lift. The connected technology enables access to Schindler ActionBoard to help facility managers monitor the equipment remotely (with a Schindler service contract). The control software has been developed based on the IEC 62443-4-1 ML3 standard for cybersecurity.


High ride quality

Schindler’s Suspension Traction Media system and a lubrication-free, gearless machine supports a quiet, smooth ride in your Schindler 5000 lift. This advanced technology, plus precise installation methods can limit sound levels to below 50 – 60 decibels (A)*, on average - equivalent to birdsong.


Seamless people flow

Your Schindler 5000 keeps people moving smoothly through the building. With banks of up to eight lifts using a conventional control system or unlimited with Schindler PORT, and the choice of telescopic (T2) or centre-opening doors (C2) and single or double entrance, wait time can be minimised even during peak hours.

Regenerative drives, LED lighting, and standby mode while parked are just a few of the standard features in our Schindler 5000 lift. These solutions not only contribute to reducing the carbon footprint of our lifts but also help conserve energy and lower operational costs for building owners.

Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) are recognised by green building certification schemes, including LEED, DGNB, and BREEAM, which enable Schindler customers to receive credits for their building certification projects. We have registered EPDs at the "International EPD® System" for all major lift product lines.

Energy-efficiency rating class A, according to ISO 25745-2.

The ISO 25745-2 classification and energy consumption always refers to a specific customer configuration.
