This allows modernization to be done quickly, with a minimal impact on the ship’s operation. You can replace the modules that require the most urgent attention, and upgrade the others as needed. In this way you get a safe, reliable and energy-efficient escalator, and modernization that is fast, clean and less disruptive.
- Replacing the old worm gear with a highly efficient KONE drive reduces energy consumption and improves performance. The chainless drive minimizes downtime and increases the availability of your escalators.
- Replacing the old controller with a new microprocessor-based controller significantly improves safety and energy-efficiency. The KONE controller connects to the latest safety monitoring systems.
- Improving the aesthetic appearance of the escalator can make it an eye-catching feature of the ship. Numerous upgrade packages are available to integrate with the design of the ship.
- Safety requirements have become much stricter in recent years. KONE provides solutions to upgrade your escalator so that it conforms with the latest norms and safety standards.
- Good accessibility makes the escalator safer and more convenient for all passengers. Upgrade packages are available for the entrance/exit areas to provide visual and audible announcements as well as travel direction indication.
