Escalator & Autowalk Safety

Safety is the starting point for every KONE solution. Our escalators are designed to meet all applicable safety standards, regulations and codes. Additional options use the latest technology to bring you further peace of mind. For example:

  • Traffic signalization solutions and audible alarms provide clear guidance on escalator travel direction.
  • The chainless design of the KONE DirectDrive™ eliminates the risk of chain failure, while the drive’s location outside the step band means easier, safer maintenance.
  • Traffic signalization, skirt lighting, yellow comb segments and step demarcations provide extra visual guidance.
  • Additional emergency stop buttons further enhance safety.
