Benefits of elevator modernization

Performance

A modernized elevator does the job better. You will have less waiting, fewer breakdowns, and less frustration – all from your existing elevator. There will be less repairs with a new, up-to-date elevator controller unit and our cutting edge hoisting machinery, that is designed to last and save energy. You can enjoy the benefits of the renewed elevator doors and signalization, that are reliable, good looking and easy to use.

Safety

Safety is our top priority – our innovative improvements will make your equipment safer, giving you and your passengers increased peace of mind. You will benefit from safety improvements in various areas, such as; better functioning car doors, accurate landing of elevator car, improved lighting to provide better visibility and the feeling of safety, a two-way communication system inside the car, an emergency power supply in case of power cuts, and much more.

Accessibility

Good accessibility is one the main qualities of an elevator. With elevator full replacement, you can reach as much as up to 50% more space in your elevator car. With modernization you can adjust wide opening doors to make it easier to enter with a wheelchair or pram. Effortless and smooth people flow improves quality of life for all people in the building and ensures that the building remains attractive for the current and the potential tenants and owners.

Visual appearance

A good-looking elevator complements your building and makes an elevator ride a pleasant experience. You can have your old elevator car transformed into a modern one as a part of the modernization project. Have your elevator refurbished with stylish, durable and easy to clean materials, without increasing the weight of the elevator. We provide you various, professionally designed car interiors to choose from. Alternatively, you can tweak a ready- made car design or make a design of your own, by mixing and matching materials and accessories according to your personal preference.

Eco-efficiency

Modernization can significantly improve the eco-efficiency of your elevator. We offer an energy-efficient KONE EcoDisc® motor that consumes far less energy than a geared, two-speed traction or hydraulic elevators. You can also enjoy the benefits of energy-efficient LED lighting in the car and our energy-saving drive system that recovers the excess braking energy and feeds it back into the network. We also offer stand-by mode options, where the car automatically goes into energy-saving mode, when elevator is not in use. You can both save money and reduce your carbon footprint.
