People rely on architects to lead and manage projects and make hundreds of important decisions, including the elevator design and options. Although this might not be at the top of their to-do lists, it’s always been surprisingly complicated. Until now.

So, a customer needs to design an elevator system. How do they make sure it’s right for the building? Elevators often look similar, but there are hundreds of options for customizing and upgrading them to meet their clients’ needs.

Elevators in luxury hotels need options that add extra comfort and efficiency.

Medical facilities require elevators that can be controlled individually, with special functions to get them to the right floor as fast as possible. In an emergency, every second counts.

Office tenants and visitors expect to move easily around the building with elevators that can handle the morning, lunchtime, and evening rushes. And, the elevators need to have the right level of security.

How to get elevator interior design right

They need to get the elevator plan right, but researching and understanding all the different options is time-consuming. Thankfully, there’s a simpler way for our customers to stay on top of things; an idea we borrowed from the car industry.

When you buy a new car, you can choose, say, the ‘sports’ or ‘navigation’ package to upgrade the vehicle to suit your needs. Schindler has introduced the same concept for our elevator solutions.

The perfect combination of features

Let’s imagine a customer is designing a residential building. The elevators must have wheelchair access, but don’t need to be fully EN81-70 compliant. They choose a Schindler elevator with the Easy Access package and the handrail, mirror, and non-slip floor will be automatically included. Simple and straightforward.

Schindler elevator packages have been developed to address the needs of different buildings and use cases. They help our customers upgrade the elevator, so it’s fit for purpose. But importantly, they don’t affect the shaft dimensions or building interface in any way. So, once a customer has planned the fundamentals, they can easily choose the package that’s right for their project.

Our customers can rely on us

Every year, we install thousands of elevators around the world, and we maintain hundreds of thousands of units in every type of building imaginable. We know what works in a particular situation and what features architects regularly request.

To streamline a customer’s design and procurement process, we’ve turned this experience into packages to make the process easier for them.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the packages available for our customers around the world.

Damage resistant

Extra-robust upgrades for elevators that are heavily used, to protect the elevator car from damage, and minimize future repair, and maintenance costs.KG's to choose the packages that are relevant for their market.

Easy access

Barrier-free mobility for everyone, with features and accessories to allow unrestricted access for all passengers.


Optimizes tenant security and wellbeing, while combatting burglary and intrusion.


Hassle- and damage-free moving. Keeps residential or commercial elevators protected when transporting large and heavy items and helps to avoid costly repairs and unsightly equipment.


Safety and comfort for patients and staff in hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities, such as recessed lighting. Tailored for buildings where hygiene and comfort are of paramount importance.


Additional comfort to provide a peaceful journey through the building through  upgrades that help make elevators in a residential building calm and welcoming spaces.


Extra comfort for everyday operation, including efficient and hassle-free use during the morning, evening, and lunchtime rushes.


Optimizes the elevator experience for guests, travelers, and hotel staff with a range of features designed for security, reliability, and passenger comfort.


Peace of mind for residents with direct elevator access, right from their apartment. Allow tenants to enter their home safely and discreetly, while also easily controlling guest access.

How elevator packages work

Using Schindler elevator packages is easy. A customer can access them via the Schindler Plan & Design tool: our online application that takes the stress out of elevator design. It’s simple to use, requires no knowledge of our products, and covers aspects of elevator design they might not have even considered.

Packages provide two main benefits for our customers. First, rather than thinking about exactly what components and options they need in their elevator, they can leave it up to us. That means they have more time to design other parts of the building. Second, by choosing the appropriate package they ensure the elevators they design are right for the building, resulting in happy users and a happy client.
