After the international success of Skyrise 1, which was mostly dedicated for use in tall office buildings and commercials with speed ranging from 2.5m/s to 7.0 m/s, Otis has launched a new generation of Skyrise elevators to address specifications for the medium standard market and is an ideal solution for residential developments, hotels and low commercials. Skyrise 2 is a machine room technology using the same components as the MRL Gen2 technology and with speed ranging from 2.5 to 4.0m per second. As the Skyrise 1 car load capacity ranges from 900 to 2250kg, and was already offering a wide range of applications for heavy duty usage and intensive traffic, Skyrise 2 displays car load possibilities from 900 to 1600kg, while also addressing requirements for clinics and hospitals. “Clearly, Skyrise 2 is a cost-cutting solution to developers and designers who are engaged with medium rise projects while keeping a high level of technology and aesthetics,” says Amyn Benyekkou, head of sales and marketing Otis Africa. Skyrise 2 is compatible with CompassPlus, the Otis-patented destination system that can organise travel by grouping passengers and stops to serve a group of zones and floors, resulting in a faster and better organised traffic flow and service. About Otis Otis was founded in 1853 and is the world’s largest manufacturer of people moving products including elevators, escalators and moving walkways. Otis maintains 2 million elevators and escalators in more than 200 countries and is engaged in ethics, safety, green environment and people employment diversity. Otis is a unit of United Technologies Corporation (UTC), a leader in global building systems and aerospace industry.
