Our escalators and moving walks are a design to be proud of
Everything we do is built on these principles, combined with our passion for bold ideas and pioneering technology.
Ultimately safe, incredibly reliable, and designed to integrate seamlessly with your building, our escalators and moving walks with a commercial focus are engineered to be whisper quiet and smooth. They also offer a wealth of design options to allow a high degree of individuality. It all combines to encourage passengers to relax and explore your premises thoroughly.
Designed to meet the extreme and varied demands of public spaces such as airports, metros and other busy transport hubs, our escalators and moving walks raise the bar for endurance and reliability. You can expect at least 20 years of efficient, safe service without downtime from our products in classic public ‘hot spots’.
Gone are the days of being hidden from view; today’s escalators and moving walks take pride of place in public and commercial spaces. They help define the way people experience these buildings.
Style and substance merge perfectly in our escalators and moving walks. Take the elegantly tapered handrail entry box that minimises risk of passenger contact. Or the elongated newel, whose sweeping lines give passengers more time to grasp the handrail before getting on.
Using energy-efficient LEDs, our escalators offer you a choice of coloured lighting for balustrades and skirt panels. Traffic flow lights, and lighting at the top and bottom, give passengers subtle directional cues.
With one of the widest selections of finishes for steps, balustrades and railings, our products are designed to harmonise with and enhance any building or project.
Safety and reliability are at the core of all we do, from initial design to manufacturing, and in the many accessories we provide. The drive to keep you safe and moving smoothly is in our DNA.
Our unique Multifunction Escalator Safety Device [MESD] learns your unique equipment and exceeds code safety requirements. The system protects you from a whole range of potential problems, from over-speed and missing steps to handrail issues and unscheduled direction of travel changes.
Our handrail entry box design provides exceptional levels of safety and strength. Its tapered design minimises the risk of passengers – especially our youngest travellers – touching the deflectors, while safety brushes gently guide passengers away from the skirt panels. The skirt panels themselves reduce friction to stop objects getting caught.
Otis® escalators use rectangular steel trusses to increase their strength. Seal welds protect them against internal corrosion.
Escalator steps are subjected to dynamic load testing not only 5 million times as normally required, but 20 million times. All our facilities conduct step breakage tests too, ensuring step quality and durability.
We use a computerised assembly jig for precise alignment of the tension carriage, track system and main drive.
Our escalators and moving walks embrace sustainability. Our smart lubrication system uses up to 98 percent less oil and keeps your escalator or moving walk running smoothly. Standby ETA+ or intermittent operational modes, plus LED lighting further reduce energy consumption. In addition, ReGen® drives capture energy when the escalator or moving walk goes down, returning it to your power grid.
