KONE's world-class elevator solutions for residential and commercial buildings offer excellent eco-efficiency, smooth ride comfort, and award-winning design. KONE elevators are powered by the KONE EcoDisc® hoisting machine, which is a gearless machinery. These machines are extremely space and energy efficient compared to traditional gearless, geared or hydraulic drives. Being a gearless system, it provides excellent riding comfort.
The general power consumption and the peak starting currents can be up to 50% lower than the conventional machines. This means remarkable savings in annual energy. In addition, there will be a significant cost savings when purchasing power supply equipment and cables.
The EcoDisc® motor operates at a maximum of just 125 rpm (compared to 1500 rpm in conventional equipment) which means that it is very quiet and has a long operating life. This lift system has won the 10th annual Nova Award in 1999, referred to by the many in the U.S. as the “Nobel Prize for Construction”.
In addition to this state of the art EcoDisc® technology, our lifts now come with 2 hour fire-rated doors (without insulation) as a standard feature, providing even more cost savings in design and construction.
KONE's TravelMaster escalator systems are highly eco-efficient escalators, optimised for retail and commercial environments, providing a smooth, safe ride to ensure a pleasant passenger experience. It incorporates the latest in safety technologies and visual design innovations. We provide standard safety features including comb plate impact device switches and emergency stop buttons for passengers. All KONE manufacturing units are ISO 14001 certified and meet all relevant escalator industry standards and requirements.
KONE has always been renowned for revolutionary eco-efficient technology. The built-in renewed inverter ensures smooth speed regulation during standby operation and minimises energy consumption at full speed. Eco-efficient operational modes save energy by slowing down or stopping the escalator completely when traffic is low. For example, when an escalator is empty, energy consumption is further reduced with KONE’s smart star-delta operational mode, which regulates the current needed for different types of load situations.
Long lasting LED lighting is up to 80% more efficient than fluorescent lighting and lasts up to 10 times longer. Installing a KONE escalator can also help achieve green building accreditation such as LEED or BREEAM certification.
In 2016, U.S. based business magazine Forbes has ranked KONE the 56th most innovative company in the world with KONE being the only elevator and escalator company featured on Forbes’ list.
