We are excited to have been nominated for Elevator World’s second annual Ellies Award program in the category of “Best Supplier – Other,” and are honored to be among the ranks of such fine North American elevator and escalator industry businesses who go above and beyond for their customers, employees, communities and the industry as a whole.
Voting has begun, and if you feel so inclined, click or tap the link below, then look for KONE Spares under “Best Supplier – Other.“ You can vote more than once, but only once a day. [hint hint] 😉
Yes. It’s time to start scheduling escalator cleandowns.
Escalators, moving walks, and their components should be cleaned periodically to prevent accumulations of dirt, grit, lubricants, and all the candy wrappers, lollipop sticks, bottle caps, and other weird stuff that somehow makes its way into the inner workings of the machine.
Sure, it’s a dirty job, but you know what they say: Someone’s got to do it. The good news is we do what we can to make it quicker and easier.
First of all, remember the barricade. Keep yourself and the public safe. If your current ones are falling apart, which they oft seem to do, give ours a try. They’re going to be some of the best built, sturdiest, and long lasting barricades you can get:
We’ve had great feedback from the field on the OIL-EE. It allows oiling of step chains from outside the escalator pit – saving time and messy clean-up. Features include:
· Heavy duty 2 gallon polyethylene sprayer · 45″ long heavy duty brass wand with replaceable oil brush · Heavy duty trigger handle with lock · Oil flow regulator valve · 56″ heavy duty fuel line hose · Retractable, sealed PVC brush cover with cap to limit oil dripping after use
Remember, scheduled escalator clean downs will, in the long run, save time and money, and also give an opportunity to discover problems that can be addressed before they become safety issues — or an even bigger problem.
In this updated video we re-introduce our new game-changing combination safety brush and lighting system. Its a quick and relatively inexpensive way to improve both the safety and aesthetics of most escalators and autowalks.
