Use of lead in KONE articles

KONE is constantly striving to remove lead from its articles. However, please note that the following KONE articles delivered to the EU contain lead in a concentration above 0.1% weight by weight:

  • Lead filler bits used in the counterweights of KONE MonoSpace 700 ™ and KONE TranSys ™ elevators with low head room or with very little space for the counterweight.
  • Lead-acid batteries in all elevators.
  • Certain electrical and electronic articles within PCBAs and drives in KONE’s electrification solutions.

The aforementioned articles do not pose a safety risk to customers and end-users under normal conditions of use provided the elevator is operated according to KONE’s instructions and the articles are disposed of in accordance with all applicable regulations.
