Before starting a major modernization project, it makes sense to take a close look at what really needs to be done. KONE Care for Life™ is a thorough analysis of the condition of the equipment, focusing on accessibility, safety, aesthetics and performance. Based on this assessment, we recommend a modernization plan.
Replace only what’s necessary. Mechanical systems such as gears and hoisting machines can last for decades, but electronic systems and safety regulations could change considerably over time. With modular modernization, you keep the components that work and modernize the rest.
Substantial benefits from full modernization. With more extensive modernization, you can achieve energy savings of 50-70% compared to the old equipment.
- The KONE MaxiSpace™, for example, enables you to have a larger elevator car in the same shaft and save energy at the same time.
- Our KONE EcoMod™ modernization solution for escalators provides substantial energy savings and reduces oil consumption by two-thirds. When modernizing your equipment, we also take responsibility for the safe, environmentally-efficient removal and disposal of the old equipment.
