The green escalator

Cleaning that doesn't harmthe environment

One of the major benefits of lubrication-free chainsis the lowering of levels of dust and dirt accumulatingon and around the chains. Historically, cleaning theseareas has called for solvents and strong detergents -not so with KONE's oil-free chains.

The lubrication-free ECO3000 drive chain removesthe need to use environmentally unfriendly solventsand strong detergents associated with earliertraditionally lubricated chains that accumulatehard-to-remove dust and dirt.

Reduce daily energy

Stand-by operation adjusts the speed based on usage,increases equipment lifetime and can reduce dailyenergy consumption by up to 30%.

KONE is renowned for producing energy efficient, environmentally friendly drives that are robust andquiet in use. Having dispensed with the need for frequent use of heavy oils and lubricants, the KONEECO3000® has become one of the most environmentally friendly escalators in the global markethelping towards improving a building’s environmental standards.

Red/green coloured lightscan also be provided which automatically changecolour to suit the direction of travel, thereby actingas traffic lights to help passengers to determine thedirection of travel.

Safety options

Standard safety features:• Step inlet safety switches• Handrail inlet safety switches• Step sag safety switches• Chain tension control switches• Speed sensor system• Motor thermic protection• Mains supply isolator• Step band locking device• Emergency stop buttons at both ends of escalator• Emergency stop switches within upper and lowermachine compartments

• Step return protection guards at both drive andreturn stations

Traffic lightsLED traffic lights help passengers to easily determinethe direction of travel when approaching the escalator.

Sprinkler systemSprinklers are vital assets to combat fire in any building.KONE ECO3000® escalators can be installed withsprinkler piping that interfaces with the building’sown fire suppression system.

LSF halogen-free cablesElectrical cables insulated with low-smoke and fume,halogen-free materials prevent toxic gases beingreleased in the event of a fire.

Comb demarcationYellow polyester powder coated combs provide a cleardemarcation line between the moving steps and thelanding areas, helping prevent trips by encouragingpassengers to step safely on to and off the escalator.

Emergency stop buttonAdditional emergency stop buttons can be situated atstrategic points of the installation, free standing/wallmounted to improve passenger safety in emergencies.

Step demarcationYellow demarcation lines help passengers to standsafely away from the edges of the step treads and areavailable as painted lines or hardwearing plastic inserts.

Step upthrust deviceThe step upthrust device detects foreign objectspreventing the steps from levelling correctly as theypass through the transition curves onto the landingareas, e.g. pushchair wheels, and stops the escalatorto prevent mechanical damage.

Handrail speed monitorThis device constantly monitors the speed of thehandrails and will stop the escalator if there is asignificant speed difference between the handrailsand the steps.

Missing step detectorTo ensure the escalator is not returned to service with anincomplete step band, a proximity sensor is availablewhich will stop the escalator if a step has been omitted.

Voice annunciationVoice annunciation reminds passengers how to safelyuse the escalator, particularly when boarding anddisembarking. Customised messages can be providedto suit specific site conditions.
