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.

All our Faigle wheels are protected against high humidity and hydrolysis-resistant with high load bearing capability, robustness, sound and vibration dampening and long service life.

Faigle set the benchmark for the industry with the highest levels of product quality and testing. In fact their rollers are so well trusted they are approved by public authorities and by OEMs, including Schindler, Kone, Thyssenkrupp, Otis, Hitachi, Fujitec and Mitsubishi.

Thanks to many years of continuous development and improvement, Faigle wheels are produced using advanced materials to offer exceptional mechanical characteristics to meet modern demands  - TEP technicha are proud to partner with Faigle to supply the world’s leading escalator wheels.

We supply escalator step, chain and trailer wheels for all types of commercial escalator. We also supply wheels for travelators (moving walks) which you will commonly see at airports. We understand from experience that safety, performance, price and low maintenance costs are key requirements for escalator wheels which are used in the movement of people and goods. A few of the reasons why Faigle are the number one supplier in the escalator industry.

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.  

  • Step type escalator
  • Moving walkways
  • Spiral escalators

Benefits Of Escalators

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.

We offer a wide array of wheels to suit a variety of industrial and commercial applications.
