Elevator renovation for digitally enabled people flow

In an increasingly digitalized world, elevator renovation allows you to keep up by adding connectivity to your elevator. With modular modernization, 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 updating things like the elevator control system and the hoisting unit would significantly improve its performance. Upgrading an existing elevator by updating the elevator control system optimizes people flow and operational efficiency, while elevator renovation makes sure your property is ready to take advantage of future smart-building technologies.

Significant improvements with modular elevator modernization solutions



Modernizing the controller and electrification system of an old elevator will improve its reliability, eco-efficiency, safety, and accessibility. Because our electrification solutions are quick to install, there will be minimal disruption for building residents.



The hoisting unit is the part of your elevator that does the hard work. Replacing worn, outdated machinery is vital for maintaining safety and ride comfort.



It is common for an elevator's mechanical systems to still be in good shape while the car interior is worn and outdated. Our car modernizations bring the interior up to date with a range of modern and durable design options and accessories.



Our elevator signalization systems improve accessibility, safety, and convenience for passengers. They provide fast, two-way voice communication with the KONE Customer Care Center™ around the clock in case of emergencies.



Adding a new, automatic door to your elevator improves safety, but can also add weight and take up space. Our lightweight automatic doors maximize space inside the car and feature smooth, quiet operation.
