Topping off our three weeks of fun December specials, we have three very special products for you:

KONE Spares Missing Step Detector Kit employs touchless proximity sensors instead of mechanical rollers to detect missing steps. This solution fits most escalators, not just the Montgomery HRs.

A complete rebuild kit for the 60A (round top) gearboxes for Montgomery HR Escalators. With intact gearbox casing, these materials will allow you to completely rebuild your gearbox into like-new condition!

SALE PRICE: $6,500

We like and trust the entire Formula Systems product line so much that we recommend them to everybody, and right now we have the trusty Formula FCU47 at significantly reduced prices that you’ll probably never see again.

For more details, contact us today! 

And remember, these products are only on sale this week, from December 20th to 23rd, so don’t delay.


Our very own Jessica Gross attended CEA’s annual golf outing & dinner on August 6th at Gleneagles Country Club benefitting the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation (EESF).

KONE Spares was a hole sponsor, gave away koozies to keep their drinks cold to all participants and then hosted a challenge on the 9th hole for a prize.

The challenge was marshmallow putting, the basis of the game was to spin 3 times around your club and then putt the marshmallow, whoever got closest to the pin won a KONE Spares golf towel.

The event brought in close to 100 golfers this year and helped raise $4000 for the EESF! It was a great time seeing our industry friends face to face again!

Don’t Take A Child Wearing a Leash or Harness onto an Elevator or Escalator

When properly maintained, and used as intended, elevators and escalators are some of the safest methods of transportation in existence. But if you use a type of harness or leash on a small child, do not take your child on an elevator or escalator.

Anything dangling like a leash — as well as untied shoelaces, long coat straps, etc. — can be caught in moving equipment with disastrous consequences. This goes not only for escalators but elevators as well, as a child (or pet) on a leash could dart in or out of the cab as the doors close, the doors can catch the leash, and the elevator cab goes into motion … again with disastrous consequences.

The best way to protect children around moving equipment is to hold their hand and guide them safely. If using a baby cart or stroller, always use an elevator — never take them on an escalator. And always, always, always keep an eye on them. Do not let them play or linger around elevators, escalators, or even stairs.

Please help spread this important message.

Escalator & Autowalk Safety Tips

  • Instruct passengers to ride safely.
  • Hold the handrail.
  • Ride the escalator facing the appropriate direction of travel.
  • Do not lean over the handrail.
  • Keep feet away from the escalator’s sides.
  • Step over the combplates at the top and bottom of the escalator.
  • Children in strollers should never be transported on the escalator.
  • Physically challenged passengers should never use the escalator.
  • Do not transport freight on the escalator.
  • Attend and hold children’s hands when riding escalator.
  • Children should be accompanied by an adult and never left alone in the vicinity of an escalator.
  • Do not allow anyone, especially children to play on or around the escalator.
  • Do not jump on escalator.
  • Keep hands away from handrail inlets and step.

Elevator Safety Tips

  • Enter and exit the elevator promptly.
  • Watch your step when entering or exiting the elevator.
  • Children should always be accompanied by an adult when using the elevator.
  • Do not allow children to play on or around an elevator.
  • Children should be accompanied by an adult and never left alone in the vicinity of an elevator.
  • No unauthorized person should enter the elevator hoistway.
  • Elevators must not be used in the event of a fire or other emergency situations.
  • Do not transport any long objects by opening the car top emergency exit.
  • Do not jump in the car while the elevator is running.
  • Do not prevent the operation of the infrared door detection-cells with objects.
  • Never wedge an object or any part of the body in the path of a closing elevator door.
  • Comply with the stated number of persons/weight for the elevator.
  • When cleaning corridors or car interior, avoid sweeping water into the shaft.
  • Use the ‘stop’ and ‘alarm’ buttons only when required.
  • When calling the elevator, press only the button indicating the direction you wish to travel.
