Schindler

Automatic solid door sills

1960s-1970s

In this period, Schindler were using their QKS6, QKS7 and QKS8 door operator. The door sills design are same as later Schindler elevators with QKS9 door operator.

1980s-1990s

In the 1980s-1990s, Schindler were mostly using their QKS9 door operator for center opening doors, therefore the doors are looking quite similar. This not applied in America.

2000s-Present

Beginning in the 2000s, Schindler choose Sematic Group (for 5400, 5500 and is a standard feature of the 7000) as their door component supplier. They also use door components provided by Wittur Group (usually for 300 P and both 5400 AP and 7000 installed under the project from Hong Kong Housing Authority in Hong Kong) and Fermator (for 3100, 3300, 6200 and 6300 elevators) for some installations. Their QKS9 door component is still used but is now quite rare for new installations[7], while the Schindler 400A elevators in North America are using QKS16 VF door operator.

Schindler 3100, 3300, 6200 and 6300 elevators use Fermator door equipment with direct drive, regardless of region. The size of both the shaft and cab side of the door sill/track is slim. Sematic door equipment can also be used on some 3300 AP elevators as an option, usually for glass doors[8].

For Schindler 5500, it uses door components made by Sematic Group. The doors makes a very unique "futuristic" movement sound when opening and closing, this is because Sematic doors use geared drive. For the sill size, the shaft side sill is always bigger than the cab side sill.

For Schindler 7000, it uses door components made by Sematic Group. The doors makes a very unique "futuristic" movement sound when opening and closing (but different than 5500[9]), this is because Sematic doors use geared drive. For the sill size, the shaft side sill is always bigger than the cab side sill.
