MEILLER Aufzugtüren GmbH has been offering professional solutions for modernisation for many years. As a result, it has developed many concepts, such as car doors with skates, which have been adapted to third-party landing doors or even to its own earlier generations of doors. At the 2017 interlift, MEILLER presented a new product in its line of modernisation solutions: the Kompakt door series.
As a first step, the car doors are replaced; the old landing doors can remain in place for the time being and are actuated by the new car door. Consequently, operators do not immediately have to spend a lot of money to replace all of the landing and car doors but can instead budget and plan at an early stage for a gradual modernisation. If the landing doors have to be replaced later on, no renewed modification measures have to be made to the car door; only the specially modified door vane has to be replaced with a standard skate.
In addition to that, landing doors are also subject to considerable daily loads due to abuse or vandalism, which in turn lead frequently to lift disruptions or failures. The only remedy in this case is the use of sturdy, resilient components. The use of high-quality components ensures that MEILLER doors work reliably even under the most demanding conditions.
At the 2017 interlift, MEILLER unveiled a new product in its line of modernisation solutions: the Kompakt door series. It is characterised by its extremely low transom heights - only 218 mm for the landing doors and 305 mm for the car doors. This is important, because many old lifts in particular have landing doors with a transom height of 250 mm or less. As long as these doors are hung entirely in the shaft, this is usually not a problem. If they are installed, however, in the wall niche, a replacement with new doors having greater transom heights is not feasible or involves extensive chiselling work.
While many modernisation concepts only promise space-saving solutions, MEILLER states that it strives to deliver high-quality doors with sophisticated technology: The transoms of the Kompakt doors correspond to the design of their standard doors.
