Provide clarity and solid comfort to your car with this robust design line. Fresh colours, a contrasting rear wall, the option of three different floors or a bare floor make Navona the right choice for residential applications. Stainless steel can be added to rear and side walls. Navona‘s interior stands for long lasting functionality right where it is needed.

Times Square - Modern and versatile

Determine your modern look. Choose from warm or cool colours to create a fresh look or combine the options to enhance contrast for more depth. Use a bare car option to create your style and taste. Times Square adds distinctive features to any public, commercial or residential building.

Park Avenue - Sophisticated and elegant

Discover pure elegance with back painted glass walls or choose wood laminate to create a more contemporary ambiance. The optional wave design, a rounded transition from ceiling to rear wall, gives your car a unique appearance. An additional highlight is a gold or silver shimmer from our metallic glass collection or a brushed bronze or satinated grey finish on stainless steel. Matched lighting perfects the stylish design of this elevator – an ideal fit for representative buildings like high-end residential, hotels and offices.

Sunset Boulevard - Inspirational

Aim high for passenger excitement in upmarket locations like hotels, clubs and restaurants. The combination of premium quality materials, captivating patterns and splashy colour gradients make this car a unique experience. Lighting and ceiling concepts create a fascinating atmosphere. Make your elevator become your stage.

Operating panels and options

Operating panels

Make your elevator easy to operate for all passengers. Energy efficient operating panels all come in high quality materials and finishing. As an option, elegant full-glass fixtures provide the finishing touch to the car interior. High-resolution and easy-to-read indicators make the ride even more enjoyable. 

Mirrors

Mirrors always add a special sense of space to rooms and buildings. In order to give your car more appeal and depth, one sidewall or the rear wall can be provided with a full-height safety-glass mirror.

Handrails

Even though your elevator travels smoothly, handrails convey a feeling of security. Stainless steel handrails match the interior and shapes of your car and can be mounted to the side and rear walls. Illuminated handrails enhance the overall ambiance of the car.

Lighting

A selection of different lighting options lets you add the right atmosphere to your elevator - from warm spot light to ambient indirect lighting. You can either choose from one of the lighting solutions that comes with our interior designs or you can opt for a custom solution.
