Schaefer has established itself worldwide in the course of its 54-year company history as a manufacturer of individual, high quality special solutions. With locations in Sigmaringen, Milan, Barcelona, Shanghai and Vancouver, the company has positioned itself more internationally in recent years and expanded its leading market position.

Own logistics centre in Erfurt

Schaefer is a good address for special solutions. However, in many commodity projects, the focus is less on high customizability of the products and more on cheap standard solutions and short delivery times. In order to expand its product range and service in this field,

Schaefer has opened a logistics centre of its own at a new location in Erfurt for a Schaefer web shop. This is unconditionally oriented to the fastest-possible delivery of standardised control panels and components related to lift engineering.

Overview of deliveries

HandwerkThe articles offered at are available from stock and ready for delivery within 24 hours. If you are in a particular hurry, you can in addition select express delivery. Customers always have an overview of their deliveries in their personal login area and can follow each order and each package online.

Should an article ever be sold out, the reminder function of the shop assists. As soon as an article arrives in the warehouse, interested customers are automatically notified via e-mail.

Continuous expansion

Following the launch, the product range is undergoing continuous expansion. Schaefer has developed new products especially for distribution via, which are now sold exclusively via this channel. These include 60 different landing- or display fixtures in various designs.

For example, the new deep-drawn panel series "PureLine basic" with a depth of 13 or 27 mm and the "SlimLine basic" with a front panel depth of only 12 mm. But tried-and-tested top-sellers like the travel direction displays and lift identifications from the GlassLine as well as selected models of the ClassicLine (brass cast panels) can now be ordered at short notice from stock via

Schaefer light grid – exclusively via

HandwerkSchaefer was already able to present its own light grids at the interlift, which are now distributed exclusively via the web shop on extremely attractive terms. Schaefer light grids cover all requirements of EN 81-20. In addition, two special types also comply with EN 81-70 (action length of 1800 mm).

Advantages of the Schaefer light grid are:
- Simplified and sturdier installation thanks to special light grid base (pin).
- All light grids are suitable both for static as well as dynamic attachment.
- Versions for direct connection to the control or for operation via a separate controller (buzzer box) are available.
- Thanks to a 30 cm cable with plug on the light grid, easy replacement is possible without new laying of the 2 x 4 m lines likewise included in delivery. This saves time and costs when changing the light grid.
- The slim design (10 mm) also permits deployment in the most cramped spaces.
- Detection distance of 0 – 4000 mm
