Shaping how we move through tomorrow’s buildings today.

It's all in the planning and the use of advanced technology.

KONE Online Planning Tools and KONE Lane ensure seamless and efficient modern building environments.

What is the perfect building entrance? For architects and builders, crafting the perfect entryway isn’t just about aesthetics, it’s a critical touchpoint that defines the building’s identity. As you step into a new building, the first impression is crucial. All eyes gravitate towards the entryway - the gateway to your destination. Often, navigating through cumbersome turnstiles can disrupt the initial encounter.

That’s where KONE Lane steps in - an award-winning pioneering fusion of space-efficient design and cutting-edge sensor technology, ensuring seamless and secure people flow. This innovation not only ensures smart building navigation, but underscores the importance of considering such touchpoints in the early stages of construction. By prioritising these details from inception, we set the stage for a lasting and impactful first impression for your building’s users.

First Stop: Innovative Planning Solutions

KONE Online Tools

Before construction gets underway and within the early design phase, KONE has a suite of free online tools to assist with appliance planning. These tools are designed to streamline the planning process, provide valuable insights, and facilitate efficient collaboration among stakeholders.

When installing an elevator, it is crucial to prioritise not only functionality but also its aesthetic appeal and seamless integration with the pre-existing design of the building. KONE’s online tools provide a user-friendly system that allows developers and designers to customise elevator specifications to suit the aesthetics of the building. These modern, intuitive online tools act as a digital self-service platform to support architects, building planners and facility managers in the building design process by providing initial elevator dimensions, 2D and BIM model drawing outputs.

“To allow for early planning, we offer digital tools upfront that account for the physical elements of the elevator, such as its speed, the distance it travels, its size and load capacity. Our nationwide teams are on hand to support builders and architects through the entire process, from the early planning phase right through to the installation, handover and maintenance,” says Josh Lacey, Regional Director for KONE Australia and New Zealand.

Seamless Access, Uncompromised Security

Once planning has been finalised, the next stop is access. Welcome to KONE Lane – a revolutionary solution that redefines people flow and access within buildings, transforming the way we envision construction sites and office environments.

Lacey comments: “KONE Lane is more than just a system; it's a game-changer. It's a modular, interconnected solution tailored to the specific needs of your building and its occupants. At its core, KONE Lane prioritises smooth people flow, integrating touch-free access and personalised user experiences seamlessly into the infrastructure whilst also saving 90% of space compared to traditional turnstiles.
