Elevator Modernization - Elevator Renovation

Elevator modernization tailored to your needs

In an increasingly digitalized world, everything is connected – and elevators are no exception. With connectivity, you can make your elevator smarter and more desirable with new people flow solutions and value-adding services from KONE and our partners.

Modular modernization is ideal if the overall condition of your elevator is still functional, but if you modernise, update and change some systems it would significantly improve elevator performance. By completing a project to modernise or change an existing elevator you can both optimise people flow and operational efficiency and make sure your property is ready to take advantage of future smart-building technologies.

Replace an elevator, add connectivity

Full elevator replacement gives you a modern, connected elevator that allows you to add new smart building solutions and services that increase the value of a building. Replace an elevator and get connectivity built in. The elevator replacement cost is a good investment because it allows you to take advantage of smart building services developed by KONE and our People Flow Ecosystem partners. You can also connect your own services and aim to reduce the cost of a building even more. The result is a tailored experience that evolves with the changing needs of tenants.

Modular modernization

We can modernise and upgrade your elevator’s performance and appearance and cut running costs by updating entire systems – such as the hoisting machinery, electrification system, or doors – in one go. Modular change and modernization are ideal if your elevator is:

  • 15 to 20 years old
  • consuming a lot of electricity
  • doesn’t level accurately with landing floors
  • has an outdated and impractical interior

AVERAGE TIMEFRAME 1-2 WEEKS *

Benefits of elevator modernization

img_D8I1606_highlight_680x425

Performance

Elevator modernization will mean a shorter waiting time, fewer repairs and breakdowns, lower running costs, and enhanced elevator safety features for tenants and visitors. Modern automatic doors and signalization will make sure that your elevator looks good and is easy to use.

Elevator safety

Our innovative improvements in elevator safety give you and your elevator users added peace of mind. The cost of a project to modernise and change your elevator is offset by benefits like better functioning car doors, accurate car levelling, improved lighting, a two-way communication system inside the car, an emergency power supply in case of power cuts, and many more elevator safety features.

Accessibility

When you modernise your installation with a complete replacement elevator project, you can increase the size of the car by as much as 50%, and with elevator modernization, you can install wide-opening doors to make access easier for people using wheelchairs or pushing baby strollers.

Visual appearance

A good-looking elevator complements your building and enhances the elevator experience for residents and visitors alike, saving users precious time. When you modernise, you can completely change the look and feel of the car interior with new functional and durable materials, innovative patterns and finishes, a modern colour palette, as well as mirrors and other accessories.
