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.  

Types of Escalator:

  • Step type escalator
  • Moving walkways
  • Spiral escalators

Benefits of escalators:

  • Capacity – escalators are able to transport multiple pedestrians at a time.
  • Guidance – Escalators can act as a guide to move people towards exists or exhibits
  • Continuous service – unlike elevators/lifts escalators have no waiting interval

Modern escalators can be installed inside or outside and can be reversed to travel in the opposite direction. Even in the case of a malfunction escalators can still function as a staircase, where an elevator would not.

Choosing a high-quality escalator wheel means less downtime for maintenance, repairs and servicing - At our UK warehouse we hold a large stocks of escalator wheels that can be dispatched on a next day delivery service.
