Schindler is gaining fast in Sri Lanka – not surprisingly, with the breakthrough Machine Room-less Technology. This innovative elevator system is based on the first major breakthrough in elevator technology in nearly 100 years. Designed for buildings with a maximum travel height of 85 meters, this system allows maximum utilization of building space.

Independent Quality Department

At Schindler, there is no priority higher than the safety of those who travel on our equipment. As part of an ongoing commitment to passenger safety, Schindler has embarked on a global safety program known as “Confirmation of Periodic Safety Inspections” (CPSI) to ensure that 100% of passenger lifts officially maintained by Schindler and its exclusive distributors are certified as safe.

What is CPSI?

CPSI means “No compromise on safety”. In addition to observing all relevant codes and regulations, TPL now proactively carry out this annual safety test and sign off that 100% of the lifts maintained comply with applicable internal and external safety standards – an industry first.

CPSI is a seven-step process comprising over 70 individual tests and checks on key elevator components including:

  • Machine brake
  • Landing doors

Car door electrical contacts

  • Safety gear and speed governor
  • Hoist way slow down speed monitoring devices • Safety circuit
  • In-car communication devices

In Sri Lanka, every Schindler elevator maintained by TPL is inspected annually by a specialized in-house quality department that is independent of the field operations team. An international audit team from Schindler’s Head Office in Switzerland also carry out an audit on a random sample of Schindler elevators, to ensure quality and safety.

All Schindler engineers who carry out the CPSI tests are ‘Schindler-certified’ after a stringent training and assessment program. Only those technicians who obtain a satisfactory pass are authorized to carry out the tests.
