Otis, a manufacturer of elevators, escalators, and travellators, has introduced new products and service to the Middle East, including the connected Gen2 Life elevator and the expanded Otis SkyRise product family.

The Gen2 elevator was the first product of its kind to replace conventional ropes with flat belts, and is one of the company’s best-selling elevators ever with more than 500,000 units sold worldwide.

The new Gen2 Life elevator cab serves as a smart and functional room in the core of the building, combining new interior designs with smart, connected functionality, including a customisable in-cab display and the ability for passengers to easily call the elevator from their phone.

“Otis has been the undisputed industry leader for 164 years, and we are keen to see our vision for the future brought to life in the Middle East through our latest innovations,” said Maged Nagib, vice president and managing director, Otis Middle East.

Otis also recently expanded its SkyRise product family, designed for the world’s tallest buildings. New to the SkyRise system is the SkyBuild construction elevator.

At the initial stages of construction, the self-climbing SkyBuild elevator uses a hydraulic piston system to move one floor at a time as the building rises.

Construction teams can use it to move through the building quickly and safely, and are not exposed to weather conditions and do not require an external lift. Once construction is complete, the SkyBuild elevator transitions for immediate service as a SkyRise elevator.

Otis has been present in the UAE and Middle East region for more than 50 years, working closely with real estate developers to equip some of the Middle East’s high-rise buildings with elevators, escalators and travellators, notably Burj Khalifa, Etihad Museum, and Al Habtoor City in Dubai, Burj Mohammed Bin Rashid World Central Market in Abu Dhabi, Jamarat Bridge near Maccah, and World Trade Centre in Bahrain.
