Escalator drive

Upgrading the escalator drive will help improve ride comfort, reliability and performance. With our modular escalator modernization solutions, disturbance to tenants and visitors is minimized.


Escalator chains

Our lubrication-free step escalator chains eliminate oil smells and the risk of oil leaking through the cladding. This significantly reduces the risk of fire and makes escalator maintenance easier.


Escalator controller

Replacing an aging escalator controller with a modern microprocessor-based unit will significantly improve safety and energy efficiency. The KONE 501 controller connects to the latest safety monitoring systems for increased peace of mind.

Modular escalator modernization can bring the visual appearance of your escalator in line with your building’s look and feel. You can replace any or all of the balustrades, access covers, comb plates, skirts and decking, cleaning and balancing steps, as well as the lighting.



It’s important to make sure your escalators comply with all relevant local standards. We offer various modular escalator modernization solutions for bringing your equipment up to date, including brush deflector systems, dynamic braking, and additional safety signage.
