Indistinguishly authentic elevators, according to modern technology & safety standards

At XEL, we design and manufacture antique and vintage style elevators (in any style required) which are visually indistinguishable from elevators from late the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

All modern elevator technology is hidden behind styled cladding and visual technical items that are made visible on purpose (construction and drive elements, if applicable) can be executed in the required style.

The cladding materials we use are handcrafted by specialists in their fields, ensuring authenticity and style uniformity.

From the technical perspective, the systems are completely designed to serve the most modern safety and functionality standards, which our specialists implement throughout their flexible engineering works.

Therefore, based on the same unique skills, expertise and dedicated flexible approach as implemented for the luxurious modern elevator projects, we deliver truly unique antique elevator solutions.
