With KONE ReFine™ modular elevator modernisation, you replace only the components that need to be replaced. In a short time you can have an upgrade that enhances the performance of your elevator. You can have an elevator that looks and works almost like new, with less downtime, lower cost and less disruption to passengers and the building. Modular solutions cover the controller and hoisting, signalisation, doors, electrification and the elevator car.
The elevator hoisting unit includes the most hardworking components of your elevator. Replacing worn, outdated hoisting machinery is vital for safety and ride comfort. KONE hoisting units are designed to minimise installation time when modernising elevators in residential and small office buildings.
The bedplate is designed so that most hoisting units can be replaced without onsite engineering and welding. As an option KONE offers traction sheave shaft brakes, which increase safety by protect against unintended movement and ascending car overspeed.
One of the best ways to improve the performance of an old elevator is to modernise its electrification system. KONE modernisation solutions for elevator electrification increase performance, reliability and eco-efficiency. They also improve safety and accessibility by ensuring that the elevator comes to an accurate stop, level with the landing floor. These solutions are fast to install, ensuring minimal disturbance to building residents during modernisation.
KONE elevator car modernisation solutions integrate smoothly with existing installations. The KONE elevator car is built with lightweight and robust materials so that you can add an automatic door when replacing the elevator car, without additional weight.
A wide range of materials, interior designs and lighting solutions is available, so you can match the architecture of an older building with wooden paneling in the elevator, or match a modern building with a stainless steel interior and eco-efficient LED lights.
KONE elevator signalisation provides a stylish interface, while improving accessibility and convenience. When signalisation is modernized, it comes equipped with round-the-clock, two-way voice communication with the KONE Customer Care Centre™.
The unique KONE elevator signalisation solutions provide many attractive choices for designs, colors and patterns. They can be an attractive feature in any architectural context.
Automatic KONE elevator car and landing doors operate smoothly and quietly to give people a sense of safety and comfort. They open wide to improve accessibility, making it easier to transport furniture or a child in a pram. There is a broad range of KONE elevator doors, from slim to heavy duty, for replacing existing doors or installing a door in an elevator without one. The KONE ReNova Slim is so thin - just 62 mm, that an automatic door can be installed in a car-door-less elevator without losing significant space in the car. New KONE ReNova Slim Glass doors create a modern feeling of space in the elevator.
