About us

New ways forward in lift technology


On January 1st 2003 W+W Aufzugkomponenten, based in Düsseldorf, left the WINDSCHEID & WENDEL lift factory to become an independent company.

Since 1990 our Components Department has been engaged in the development and the distribution of series products for lifts. In 1992 the first “Digital Shaft Copying System” and in 1996 the “FixLicht” system have been presented – the first pluggable liftshaft lighting with fluorescent lamps. In 2001 the implementation of the product series "control buttons, indicator lamps and manual control boxes for lifts" has been effected.

At the end of 2002 we started to develop lift components that comply with the lift standard EN 81-80, which was new at that time. Many serial products emerged from these parts. In recent years our product range has been completed by a multitude of newly developed products and trading goods. In particular the telescopic aprons with a patented triangular locking device have become classics.

Over the last years energy efficiency has become a more and more important subject to the lift industry. Also in this area W+W could present its customers the high-class illumination with LED of the series CabinLED and SQUARE-LED. Since recently energy saving LED tubes for retrofitting conventional fluorescent lamps, suitable for the machine room and as batten lights for lift cabins are available.

Among the newer products are the buffer supports created by W+W, which are suitable for new constructions and modernisation in the shaft pit, and the folding maintenance support for creating a temporary protected space in the pit and in the shaft head room.

Since 2014 W+W has extended and further developed its range of assembled cables and modules according to the CANopen standard. We consider special customer requests concerning the cable assembly on demand.

Quality

W+W attaches great importance to a highest level of product quality with the development, as well as with the production. Comprehensive constant self testings, test specifications and certificates as VDE, ENEC, UL, TÜV, DEKRA and other ensure a constant reliable quality in delivery.

W+W feels confident, that their products fulfill exactly the high demands of the lift manufacturers.

Yours sincerely W+W Management Board
