The beauty of design
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.
At the forefront of safe, reliable technology
From design to manufacturing, we strive to keep you safe and moving.
Style and substance merge perfectly in our escalators and moving walks. The elegantly tapered handrail entry box minimizes the risk of passenger contact. The sweeping lines of our elongated newels give passengers more time to grasp the handrail before getting on.
Energy-efficient LEDs offer a choice of colored lighting for handrails, balustrades and skirt panels. Traffic flow lights give passengers subtle directional cues.
With one of the widest selections of finishes for steps, balustrades and railings, our products are designed to harmonize with and enhance any building or project.
Going above and beyond
When it comes to safety, just meeting code is not enough. The sheer breadth of our additional features stand testament to our dedication to your safety. Employing the very best materials and precision engineering methods, we provide failsafe freedom of choice.
1 Acrylic wedge guard deflectors
2 Increased height anti-fall balustrade
3 Painted yellow demarcation lines
4 Aluminum steps
5 Rounded step nose (4 mm radius)
6 Anti-climb barrier panels
7 Black or aluminium profile brush guards
8 Yellow-coated combs
Our unique Multifunction Escalator Safety Device [MESD] exceeds code safety requirements. An advanced electronic safety system activates brakes quickly and consistently when it detects an issue.
Our handrail entry box design provides exceptional levels of safety and strength. Its tapered design minimizes the risk of passengers touching the deflectors, while safety brushes gently guide passengers away from the skirt panels. The skirt panels themselves reduce friction to stop objects from getting caught.
We Know Quality
Every three days, our lifts and escalators transport the equivalent of the world’s entire population; we care deeply about each and every person.
1 Unmatched construction
Otis escalators® use rectangular steel trusses to increase their strength. Seal welds protect them against internal corrosion.
2 Rigorous testing
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.
3 Step chain assembly
We use a computerized 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 than manual lubrication systems. Sleep mode operation plus LED lighting further reduce energy consumption. In addition, the ReGen drive captures energy when the escalator travels in a downward direction, returning it to your power grid.
