Elevator solutions for the external building facades

An elevator can be mounted externally on a building facade as free standing or up to a balcony, hallway, own repos or with direct building access. Placing the elevator on the outside of the building has several advantages, such as not being confined to narrow measurements, you have several choices for where the access to the apartments is created, and that you can have it installed without requiring large renovations or inconveniences for residents.

The elevator comes in its own pre-mounted self-supporting shaft which does not strain the building's existing construction and can be quickly installed. It can be mounted to run between all floors from floor level to rooftop. HYDRO-CON is known for producing outdoor solutions that last, our products have a long lifespan, and are resistant to the sometimes harsh Scandinavian climate. We installed the first outdoor lifts 30 years ago and they are still running! The elevator is available in many sizes and with many customization options.

ELEVATOR TYPES
 

ELEVATOR TYPES THAT CAN BE INSTALLED EXTERNALLY

One can choose from three different elevator types to install externally on a building, HSCOLSCO, og LSPO. The one to choose depends largely on which parameters weigh the highest for you. Is it the price, speed, comfort or automation?

HSCO is our high-speed elevator and is in the higher price range, LSCO is in a mid-range and LSPO  is our most affordable elevator solution. Regardless of which product you choose, easy access to and from the street, minimal change to building and inconvenience for the residents, direct access to every storey, and conservation of the main- and backstairways areas. Below is a gallery of some of the external elevators HYDRO-CON has produced and installed.

Do you need more information on the differences between the elevator types, and how to choose the correct type for you, then have a look at our guide.
