KONE provides with its People Flow™ solutions high-quality accessibility for everybody. The solutions are designed so that they not only conform to tightening safety requirements but also improve accessibility within buildings. These improvements are sometimes small, but they often improve the convenience for the end-user significantly.
The company conducts regularly studies of end-users to ensure that its solutions provide accessibility for all. KONE also maintains an active dialogue with associations that promote the interests of individuals with impaired mobility to understand how the company can improve its products to serve groups with special needs. In order to ensure that KONE solutions provide the best accessibility, the service technicians pay attention to the overall accessibility and People flow in the building on-site.
Accessibility and KONE elevators
Automatic doors, accurate landing and mirror make entry and exit easier for all users. Elevators (link) can also be equipped with seats for elderly and disabled persons. Mirrors are installed to help individuals with wheelchairs move safely by providing better visibility. Increased cabin size provides more convenient building access, allowing for easier transportation, for example for baby carriages, wheelchairs, furniture, and other large objects.
The best way to improve accessibility, however, is preventative maintenance that keeps the elevator in good condition for daily users, and modernizing the elevator to meet the latest safety and accessibility standards.
