Why modernise with KONE?

AN INVESTMENT THAT PAYS OFF

KONE lift modernisation improves safety, reliability, accessibility, and appearance, and also lowers energy costs.

HAPPIER BUILDING USERS

A reliable, comfortable, and accessible lift improves the quality of life for everyone in your building.

HASSLE-FREE INSTALLATION

Our professionally managed modernisation process minimises disturbance to tenants and visitors.

Our lift modernisation solutions

img_full-replacement-teaser-442x224

Full replacement

With full replacement we completely remove your old lift and install a brand-new, accessibility-compliant one in your building’s existing shaft. We recommend this option if:

  • your lift is more than 25 years old
  • is unreliable, cramped, or slow
  • is difficult for some people to access and use

AVERAGE TIMEFRAME 4-6 WEEKS *

img_modular-modernization-teaser-442x224

Modular modernization

We can upgrade your lift’s performance and appearance, and cut running costs, by updating entire systems – such as the hoisting machinery, electrification system, or doors – in one go. Modular modernisation is ideal if your lift is:

  • 15 to 20 years old
  • consuming a lot of electricity
  • doesn’t level accurately with landing floors
  • has an outdated and impractical interior

AVERAGE TIMEFRAME 1-2 WEEKS *

img_component-upgrades-teaser-442x224

Component upgrades

Component upgrades are a quick and cost-effective way to make small improvements to things like the lift door operator, signalisation, or lighting system. These types of upgrades are recommended for lifts that are:

  • more than 10 years old
  • suffering from problems like noisy doors or outdated and impractical signalisation

AVERAGE TIMEFRAME 1-2 DAYS *

Performance

Modernisation will mean shorter waiting times, fewer repairs and breakdowns, lower running costs, and less frustration for tenants and visitors. Modern automatic doors and signalisation will make sure that your lift looks good and is easy to use.

Safety

Our innovative improvements make your lift safer, giving you and your lift users added peace of mind. By modernising with KONE you can benefit from better functioning car doors, accurate car leveling, improved lighting, a two-way communication system inside the car, an emergency power supply in case of power cuts, and much more.

Accessibility

With lift full replacement you can increase the size of the car by as much as 50%, while with modernisation you can install wide-opening doors to make access easier for people using wheelchairs or pushing baby strollers.

Visual appearance

A good-looking lift complements your building and enhances the lift experience for residents and visitors alike. You can completely transform the look and feel of the car interior with new functional and durable materials, innovative patters and finishes, a modern colour palette, as well as mirrors and other accessories.
