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.

We know quality

Every three days, our elevators 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 computerised assembly jig for precise alignment of the tension carriage, track system and main drive.

Sustainable sophistication

Our escalators and moving walks embrace sustainability. Our smart lubrication system uses up to 98 percent less oil than manual lubrication systems. 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.
