Future in the present
The age of mega tall buildings is here. Our technological breakthroughs are shaping the future of high-rise living and making the unthinkable, possible. Read on to explore our world of innovations and discover what’s the litmus test for our technologies.
Enter the world of KONE’s high-rise laboratories
Out of KONE's seven global R&D centers, two are dedicated to testing high-rise solutions.
WHAT LIES BENEATH!
Elevators of the world’s tallest building to be, Jeddah Tower, were tested in an underground limestone mine in Tytyri, Finland. The world’s deepest elevator testing facility houses 11 elevator shafts and can test a travel distance of 305 meters. See how a country with no high-rises is shaping the high-rise revolution.
Taking our innovations to new heights
From a carbon fiber composite rope that can enable future elevator travel heights up to 1,000 meters, to a self-climbing elevator that helps speed up construction, to the most rigorous tests any elevator has ever had to go through, see how KONE continues to pioneer game-changing innovations.
Stories from up, above!
From the Far East to the Middle East, from North America to the land down under, see how KONE’s innovative technologies have helped some of the world’s tallest buildings come to life.
