TWIN is a model example of technological efficiency and precision. Two elevator cabs travel independently – one above the other in the same shaft. TWIN saves space, reduces passenger travel time and saves energy. Visit website
Save more money
TWIN is extremely cost-efficient. Labor and material expenses are drastically reduced because the elevators share a single hoistway, landing doors and guide rails. For a small amount of additional effort on installation, TWIN pays dividends for years to come for any building more than 164 feet in height.
Handle more traffic
Whether used in new buildings or as part of a modernization project, TWIN can transport up to forty percent more passengers.
Move more with less
Unlike a double-deck elevator system, TWIN can park one cab while the other stays in operation. So when passenger volumes are low, no energy is consumed by moving empty cars. Furthermore, all TWIN elevator systems can be equipped with an energy recovery function that can feed about thirty percent of the energy generated by braking back into the building’s power grid.
Reduce energy consumption
Using TWIN means your building handles higher capacities with less space. By reducing the number of shafts necessary, less construction is needed and additional floor space can be reserved for maximizing leasable space.
