Factbook – strictly public


The US secret service CIA has been publishing "The World Factbook” since the 1960s. It contains statistical data on every country in the world, which was kept strictly secret and only intended for members of the government. By contrast, the new Meiller Factbook is not secret at all, but rather accessible at all times to anyone on the company’s homepage.

It not only includes a tremendous amount of data, but also the most important technical information about Meiller lift doors in a clear and succinct form.

Lift doors can be configured precisely

Meiller’s CAD programme has been widely distributed in technical departments and planning offices in the industry for many years. With its help a lift door can be configured as precisely as it needs to be for the particular project. The software converts the configuration data into a corresponding drawing, which can be adopted at the push of a button in the internal CAD system, inserted into the plan of the complete lift and then undergoes further processing as a drawing.

However, various parties have in addition expressed the wish for a product overview of the Meiller lift doors, mapping the most important details and information in compressed form. The Munich-based company has now taken this into account by publishing a fact book and placing it online on its homepage.
