WHEELS FOR ESCALATORS & MOVING WALKWAYS
At TEP Technicha quality is our priority, which is why we have partnered with the world’s number one escalator wheel manufacturer. Faigle are the leading name for escalator wheels, supplying around 70% of all rollers used on escalators and moving walkways worldwide.
Escalators and moving walkways are a vital cog in the movement of people throughout department stores, train stations and airports, and as such need to be operational 24/7. The component parts must therefore be reliable, robust and have a long service life. Faigle hand rail step and chain rollers are designed to deliver flawless functionality and longevity in high-traffic areas day in, day out.
Every detail is meticulously designed and tested to ensure safety and smooth operation. Using high abrasion resistance PAS-PU H thermoplastic polyurethane Faigle rollers can withstand heavy loads and continuous operation. The roller ball bearing protection system on the rollers is designed to prevent dust, dirt and moisture entering the bearing which can corrode and shorten the life span – this safeguards against premature failure for outdoor applications in particular.

TYPES OF ESCALATOR
Escalators have become an imperative installation in modern society.
They are continuous moving power driven stairways designed to transport a number of individuals usually over short vertical distances between floors, but also as a horizontal moving walkway. Escalators are often used where elevators would not be practical, due to space or a requirement for continuous movement of large numbers of pedestrians. The escalator has a motor-driven series of individually linked steps on a track which rotate on a pair of tracks.
