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.

Comfort and accessibility for all elderly, handicapped, disabled, families with prams, heavy shopping bags and the like are ensured.
Increase in property value
The property value rises significantly on all floors, according to Home, the square meter price rises by almost DKK 2,600.
Home insurance for old age
The home is future-proofed for existing residents in their old age, so they are not forced to move because they can no longer handle the stairs. The number of elderly people in Copenhagen continually increases and is expected to double in 2030.
