Use of lead in KONE components
KONE is constantly striving to remove lead from its components. However, please note that the following KONE components delivered to the EU contain lead:
Lead filler bits are used in the counterweights of KONE MonoSpace 700 ™ elevators and KONE TranSys ™ elevators with low head room or with very little space for the counterweight.
All EU elevator delivers are currently equipped with lead-acid batteries.
KONE’s current elevator volume electrification solution and the drives used are exempt from being RoHS compliant and contains lead in amounts currently allowed under RoHS regulation for elevator industry. Please note that all new KONE electrification solutions are designed to be RoHS compliant without exemptions.
