Express -16 (Commercial)

When developing a new or existing commercial property, a vital area to take into account is an efficient people moving system. Large buildings used for commercial use, such as offices or institutions, cannot function smoothly without a robust elevator to transport people floor-to-floor quickly and securely. When it comes to high-use commercial lifts we recommend the Express-16, an efficient heavy-duty lift that’s perfect for high traffic areas like public buildings. A demanding environment requires maximum reliability and a large format that can comfortably hold large groups of people.

Design and Functionality

In order to fit seamlessly into a large property it’s essential a commercial lift can be customised to work harmoniously with all existing designs. Flexible car and door configurations ensure the Express-16 fits with available shaft capacities, with the added ability for adaption with buildings that have available space below the shaft. What makes this commercial lift really stand out from the crowd is the combination of its quiet, gearless, energy efficient electric motor, with no machine-room requirements, and it’s heavy-duty doors and wall panelling that ensure reduced sound levels for all passengers. An elevator in constant use is no good if it cannot comfortably move bigger crowds, and with a capacity of up to 21 people the Express-16 takes care of that easily.
