The ultimate value for low- to mid-rise buildings

A machine room-less gearless traction elevator

  • Everything fits into the hoistway for truly machine room-less design. No need for a control closet — the controller fits into the door jamb, so you’ll have more leasable building space. There’s no need for a control closet because the controller fits into the door jamb. evolution 100 also comes with a smaller overhead and pit. All this will result in more leasable building space.
  • evolution 100 is supported by its rails rather than your building, with no need for overhead support steel. That means installation requires less coordination between trades, helping to optimize costs and keep your project on time.
  • evolution 100 comes in a single shipment with sequential packing for an easier construction process. No cranes are needed during installation. You also won’t need remote runs of wires from the elevator machine to the controller.

Everything you need and nothing you don’t

  • evolution 100 comes with a stainless steel elevator cab, a classic design that is easy to clean and sanitize. Choose from downlight LED and suspended ceiling transfused lighting options for a cohesive look.
  • Auto-rescue comes standard, protecting your passengers during emergencies. In a power outage, passengers are automatically transported to the next available floor and doors open so they can easily exit the cab.
  • evolution 100’s built-in universal door operator technology increases door reliability and provides for quick door operation, reducing service calls for malfunctioning doors.

Incorporating the technology of tomorrow

  • Give tenants a luxurious, smooth ride. By using a finely tuned electronic drive and belts (rather than ropes), the evolution 100 operates without jerky stops and starts.
  • evolution 100 is ultra-quiet, both inside the cabin and out. Operating at just 50 decibels, it is no louder than a standard refrigerator.
  • Maximize uptime with MAX by TK Elevator, a real-time, cloud-based predictive maintenance solution. It’s designed to identify faults before they occur so our technicians can take preemptive action.

Drive efficiency and decrease costs

  • Our advanced regenerative drive comes standard. It feeds unused energy back into the building, so you save money and use less power.
  • Energy-efficient LED cab lights and fans turn off when elevators aren’t in use, which increases sustainability and cost savings.
  • We have material transparency certifications and declarations to help you obtain LEED certifications and credits.
