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.

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 GuardianTM low-friction skirt panels

  • 8 Black or aluminium profile brush guards

  • 9 Anti-slip rubber combplate (indoor only)


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 computerized 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. 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.

60% REGENドライブにより、エスカレーターよりも少ない消費電力で動きます
98% 従来のシステムにくらべ、潤滑油の使用量が少なくなります
