An escalator is a moving staircase – a conveyor transport device for carrying people between floors of a building. The device consists of a motor-driven chain of individual, linked steps that move up or down on tracks, allowing the step treads to remain horizontal.
Escalators are used around the world to move pedestrian traffic in places where elevators would be impractical. Principal areas of usage include department stores, shopping malls, airports, transit systems, convention centers, hotels, arenas, stadiums and public buildings.
Escalators have the capacity to move large numbers of people, and they can be placed in the same physical space as one might install a staircase. They have no waiting interval (except during very heavy traffic), they can be used to guide people toward main exits or special exhibits, and they may be weatherproofed for outdoor use. A non-functioning escalator can function as a normal staircase, whereas many other conveyances become useless when they break down.
AUTOMATIC START/STOP TRAVEL DEVICE
The sensor is near the floor plate to detect the approaching passengers and it will start automatically. It will automatically stop when all the passengers leave the lift.
RUNNING DIRECTION INDICATION
The running direction and forbidden display mark have been paced in the inlet and outlet of the handrail. The obvious running or forbidden instruction ensures the safe ridding of the passengers with great ease.
The handrail illumination has been installed in te handrail support. The gentle light adds charm to the running escalator.
PLC control automatic oiling and lubricating system fulfils the ideal automatic lubrication to the transmission chain during the running process of the escalator. It not only reduces the daily repair and maintenance word load, but also prologs the service life of the driving mechanism.
SKIRTING LIGHTING OR LED LIGHTING
The streamline skirting lighting along the step running orbit not only reserves the nice and elegant beams, but also emphasizes the visible escalator during the running in the whole building. It brings about the more cozy and secure riding for vast passengers.
