Escalator enhancements

With the latest technology and innovative features, our escalators and autowalks are the industry benchmark for safety.

1. KONE Direct Drive

The chainless design eliminates the risk of chain failure, bringing a new level of reliability. The drive’s location outside the step band means easier, safer, and faster maintenance – and minimal downtime.

2. Travel-direction alarm

An alarm warns passengers if they enter an escalator or autowalk in the wrong direction.

3. Clear visual guidance

Traffic-light signalization, skirt lighting, a yellow comb segment, and step demarcations all provide extra visual guidance for passengers.

4. Fall-prevention features

A fall-protection barrier and extended balustrades provide additional passenger protection.
