Full Escalator Replacement - KONE

A new escalator or autowalk replacement

Escalator replacement can help

A new escaltor can help if your escalator suffers from reliability problems, or if it no longer fulfills the people flow requirements of your building.

We offer two options for escalator replacement

We can install a new escalator and escalator truss, or we can replace everything except for the escalator truss.


Full escalator replacement solutions

We offer two escalator replacement solutions, both of which will help you cut energy costs and improve safety, reliability, and style.

Full escalator replacement

Full escalator replacement involves renewing the entire escalator, including the escalator truss. In an open, easy-to-access location this can usually be completed in a few working days. Full escalator replacement is an investment that pays off in reduced energy costs, as well as greater safety, reliability, and style. Explore our escalator and autowalk replacement solutions that are available both for new and existing buildings.
