About KONE Israel

KONE provides technological solutions that create added value in the lifecycle of buildings and towers, both new and existing. Alongside the development, manufacture and supply of elevators and escalators.

Over the past few decades, cities have transformed from low buildings to high-rise buildings and skyscrapers. Soon, towers would contain entire cities, and would be higher, denser and smarter with multi-use areas.

As cities become more attractive and connected, the challenges become more substantial.

KONE manufactures solutions that meet these challenges: transporting and balancing numerous people and reducing loads, while customizing solutions for smart cities and for people who expect a responsive environment. 

Its Not an Elevator, it’s a Digital Platform

The greatest revolutions of recent years, that brought digital experiences to our world, were driven by platforms, not applications. The cities of the future are already characterized by digital connectivity, from the way we use home appliances, through the ways we travel, and up to how we spend our free time. Buildings and elevators transform from mechanical products to digital platforms.

Recently, KONE launched in Israel the world’s first series of digital elevators – KONE DX Class – which redefines the elevator experience through built-in connectivity that creates a personalized experience and improves human transport. The platform transforms the elevator from a closed system to an open, dynamic and secure system, and enables to connect to its all of KONE’s digital solutions and third-party applications, such as drones, Amazon solutions, navigation apps etc. Every future external development would be able to interface with the KONE DX Class and keep the building smart, relevant, flexible and up-to-date for decades to come.

This connection would enable tech companies to develop solutions that would enable unique customer experiences in the cities of tomorrow.

Today, a robotic room-service that is interfaced with the elevator is already installed in the Marriot Hotel, EMC2 In Chicago, where you can send a message to the room service and a robot would take your order, call the elevator and reach your room’s door.

The platform includes all of KONE’s digital services, such as the 24/7 Connected Services system that predicts malfunction and performs preventive maintenance to save future resources before the malfunction disrupts the elevator’s functioning; and the KONE Residential Flow solution for residential buildings, a smart and automated entry control system that enables smooth movement from the main entry to the destination floor without waiting or performing any physical action, remote control, guests monitoring and management and more. The digital experience is also integrated into the elevator with innovative self-repairing materials, and a design that changes from floor to floor and from person the person, a different transport experience.

New Solutions for Safe and Healthy Traffic in the Urban Area

With the reopening of complexes and offices, people’s safety and health becomes a priority.

KONE’s solutions enable efficient travel and minimized gatherings, better air quality in elevators, and less need for direct contact with surfaces:

KONE Elevator Air Purifier – Improves the air quality in elevators, while eliminating most of the potential pollutants, including bacteria, viruses, dust and odors. The system utilizes PCO (Photocatalytic Oxidation) technology that was developed by NASA for removing pollutants in space shuttles.

KONE Handrail Sanitizer – uses UV light to sterilize escalators handrails, with an ongoing chemical-free process that occurs inside the escalator, without any risks for the passengers.

KONE Elevator Call – enables people to call the elevator from any point in its vicinity through an app, completely eliminating the need to touch the elevators’ buttons.

More than 100 Years of Experience

KONE is a Finnish public company that was established in 1910. The company has been operating in Israel for many years through the Israeli elevators company Isralift, which was established in 1961 and served as KONE’s official and exclusive local distributor. In 2013, this cooperation ripened into an acquisition of Isralift, which became an integral part of the Global KONE, and in 2018 the brand’s name was officially adopted and the company’s name was changed to KONE Israel. The integration between the companies enables KONE to combine its local knowledge and experience with the capabilities of a global corporation that specializes in technology, innovation, and safety. The company’s headquarters are located in Helsinki, Finland, and it has eight R&D centers and seven manufacturing facilities, in addition to a network of distributers in 140 countries.
