General information

This elevator serves The Promenade on Level 1 and was installed in 2007. This elevator used to be a Liftronic Unitronic MRL Traction, with Dewhurst, much like Elevators 14 and 15.  In 2017, this got an unexpected replacement by Schindler into this 5500 system, which replaced:

  • Motor
  • Door operator, being replaced with the iconic Sematic 5500 equipment (although the actual doors are unchanged, and they previously had Sematic anyway)
  • Hall lanterns, previously Salient/Dewhurst Triangle, being replaced by Linea 100 latern sets
  • Fixtures, all replaced into Linea 300
  • Internal indicators, previously LCD Dewhurst, replaced into Linea Vetro

Trivia

  • Before mod, the indicator and hall lanterns were useless; the floor indicator (was Dewhurst) displayed only two asterisks (**), and the hall lanterns did not light up at all.
  • When pushed, before mod, the call buttons would usually blink repeatedly, as if the car was about to arrive at that level, as this was common practise for Liftronic elevators of this model. Since Schindler 5500 elevators do not blink the call buttons when the car is about to arrive, this glitch is virtually impossible.
  • This elevator does not have proper 5500 door sills; instead, it has standard Sematic Liftronic door sills.
  • This is the only elevator in the mall not to use Dewhurst fixtures (although it did not enjoy this distinguishment as a Liftronic).
  • This is the only elevator in the mall in which the indicator uses the same font as the buttons (although, like above, it did not enjoy this distinguishment as a Liftronic).
  • This is the only elevator with a voice guidance system in Robina Town Centre that has different announcments to what is usually expected in the mall (the voice says Floor 2 instead of Level 2, as Elevators 14 and 15 say, and Elevator is going up, instead of Lift is going up or Going up.)
