The purpose of KONE modernization solutions is quite simple: to increase the value of your asset by keeping the elevators and escalators running safely and reliably for the lifetime of your building.

If your aging escalators are causing increased repair costs, down time, safety concerns, or rider complaints, it’s probably time to consider installing new equipment. When that time arrives, it’s important to know that you have options!

Modernization vs replacement

When you’re ready to end the break-fix-repeat cycle, KONE KNOWS there’s more than one way to get the job done:

  • You can endure the disruption and additional costs of a complete replacement project, including removal of the old truss.
  • Or you can choose complete modernization with KONE’s award-winning EcoMod solutions.
