With the SkyRise lift, we've taken everything we know and pushed it further, combining cutting-edge science and precision engineering to deliver the solutions you need.
Wherever your imagination takes you, the SkyRise lift will get you there.
Flexible solutions to realise your vision
A refined passenger experience
Innovative technologies working together
Unique capabilities to streamline construction
Project expertise to ensure your success
Support you can count on through a lifetime of service
The SkyRise system is available in a range of speeds, duties and rises to support any high-rise project.
The double-deck configuration reduces the number of lift hoistways needed for your building, increasing rentable space by up to 40 percent.
The super double-deck system frees architects to design buildings with floors of different heights. The system automatically adjusts the distance between the upper and lower cars while the lift is moving – without passengers noticing.
The sky’s really the limit when it comes to the Single Deck. Rising at up to 12.5 m/s to heights of up to 600 m and able to handle 4,500 kg, it’s the ideal choice for the highest and busiest of skyscrapers.
Max duty load
Handle double the passenger traffic in quick-fire time with the Double Deck. Rising to 600 m at speeds of up to 12.5 m/s, the Double Deck also cuts lift core space by up to 40 percent - an important feature where real estate is at a premium.
Ascending just as fast as the Double Deck, the Super Double Deck lift is designed to accommodate high-rises with different floor heights. It’s the perfect way to open up architectural freedom while still allowing for heavy passenger traffic.
Every high-rise project brings unique challenges. We help you anticipate them and develop solutions grounded in deep science, precision engineering and our long experience in the building industry.
And by partnering with our sister UTC companies and the United Technologies Research Centre, we’re able to do the big things others can’t.
Get to your destination as much as 50 percent faster.
Because the CompassPlus system knows where people are going before they enter the lift, it gets them there faster than conventional dispatching systems – with less waiting time, less crowding and fewer stops along the way.
Designed for the most demanding high-rise applications, our permanent-magnet SkyMotion machines are among the most energy-efficient on the planet.
Compact, reliable and energy efficient, our state-of-the-art controller employs our patented motion-control algorithm to ensure a smooth ride.
Otis pioneered the use of regenerative drives and continues to advance this technology – standard on all SkyRise systems.
To ensure a smooth, quiet ride, we designed our noise-blocking Q-frame cab and aerodynamic shroud using computational fluid dynamics and wind tunnel tests.
It’s been about safety since day one. That’s why we make the safety brakes for our highest-speed SkyRise lifts from the same heat-resistant materials used for jet-engine nozzles.
less energy loss than conventional induction machines
smaller footprint than conventional machines with SkyMotion
lighter than conventional machines with ReGen Drive
The SkyBuild self-climbing internal lift transports workers quickly, comfortably and safely during construction. Crews spend less time waiting and more time on the job than with traditional external lifts.
The SkyBuild system climbs in one-floor increments to keep pace with construction. And it quickly converts into a permanent SkyRise lift upon the building’s completion.
Your building will inspire generations to come. Our mission is to bring your vision to life.
Designed for high-traffic and high-rise applications, the SkyMotion 800 machine provides optimal energy efficiency with reduced size compared with power induction motor technology.
Designed for high-traffic and high-rise applications, the SkyMotion 400 machine provides optimal energy efficiency with reduced size compared with power induction motor technology.
Otis boosts lift ride quality and breathes new life into older buildings with its Ultra™ system.
Every SkyRise lift project has the support of our global projects organisation. Our dedicated experts collaborate with your team to keep things on track, from concept to completion. And nearly 1,500 Otis scientists and engineers stand ready to solve any imaginable challenge.
The completion of your SkyRise lift installation is just the beginning.
Every Otis lift is a model of safety and reliability. The SkyRise lift is no exception. Remote diagnostics enable our engineers to identify and resolve issues fast. Our eService portal gives you instant access to real-time performance, maintenance and other critical information.
With its unique combination of advanced technology, design flexibility, speed in construction and superior passenger experience, SkyRise lifts can make your building a symbol of excellence for generations to come.
Rising 468 metres above the city’s Pudong District, the Oriental Pearl features 11 spheres of different sizes. The design recalls a Tang Dynasty poem about the sound of pearls falling on a jade plate. Completed in 1995, the tower is equipped with 7 high-speed lifts from Otis, with maximum speeds of 7 metres per second.
Shaped by the intersection of 2 sweeping arcs and a square prism, the building stands as a symbol of the city’s emergence as a global capital. Completed in 2008 and 492 metres high, it is equipped with 62 Otis lifts and escalators, including 16 super double-deck and six double-decker lifts, with maximum speeds of 6 meters per second.
