LISLE, Ill. Sept. 1, 2021 - KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, announced today KONE MonoSpace® 300, an affordable elevator solution optimized for two-to-four story buildings. KONE MonoSpace 300 provides optimized installation methods of elevator components which helps decrease time on site and helps to deliver a complete and on-time installation. Also, with the long-term lifecycle of the building in mind, KONE MonoSpace® 300 was designed for ease of maintenance. A KONE Care elevator maintenance agreement paves the way for the benefits of KONE 24/7 Connected Services, an add on service, which allows our teams to better predict issues and helps us take action before a potential problem occurs, please visit our website for more details to learn more.
Based on proven KONE technology, KONE MonoSpace® 300 is a machine room-less traction solution that fits inside a traditional hydraulic elevator footprint. During installation, there is no need for temporary work platforms, block-outs, machine rooms. The solution's efficient installation methodology saves elevator construction time and helps keep the project on budget.
Because the elevator controller is located in the top floor's doorframe, there is no need for a separate control closet to air condition. For single-car installations, hallway controls can be integrated into the elevator doorframe, reducing coordination with other trade professionals and simplifying the installation. 'KONE MonoSpace® 300 is a perfect solution for the low-rise building,' says Ken Schmid, executive vice president, KONE Americas. 'This optimized elevator solution comes from proven KONE technology, which is competitively priced, delivers a smooth customer experience and is designed for ease of maintenance.'
KONE offers planning and budgeting assistance services, as well as a simplified contracting process, project management and installation services. KONE 24/7 Connected Services, an add-on service, helps drive optimal equipment performance, and our exemplary elevator installation safety record helps to inspire confidence and peace of mind.
