KONE Inc. has received awards from Architectural Products magazine for its KONE TravelMaster 110 escalator and the KONE EcoMod escalator modernization solution.

The awards are featured in the magazine's November issue.

A panel of 50 independent architects, interior designers, and architect, engineering and construction reporters evaluated each product before picking finalists in the categories of attributes, qualities, functionality and performance.

The KONE TravelMaster 110 escalator is tailored for the retail environment and showcases the latest in escalator eco-efficient technology, safety and reliability. Its energy-saving features include a standby speed operation, reduced escalator running speed and optional regenerative drive.

The KONE EcoMod escalator modernization solution is a first-of-its-kind approach to replacing the entire workings of an escalator unit without removing the truss, significantly lowering a project's total cost and decreasing disruption to the building's occupants.
