Montgomery Escalator Wheels
The Montgomery elevator company was founded in 1892. The company produced elevators, escalators and moving walkways until 1994 when it was acquired by KONE.
Increased Passenger Capacity
The introduction of escalators into cities has expanded possibilities for transport and commerce. The escalator enables high volumes of people to access underground stations, taller buildings become viable and transport hubs become more efficient. The success of the escalator is due to the high loading rate which allows a greater passenger capacity than elevators. A constant flow of people can move more freely and access parts of the urban landscape previously inaccessible.
Whilst providing a functional solution, escalators have also had an impact on contemporary design and architecture. Before elevators and escalators became commonplace, building design was limited to six stories. This was due to the time and stamina required to travel any higher.
In modern cities escalators are commonly found in public buildings, transport hubs, shopping centres and commercial buildings, often taking centre stage. Multi floor buildings are designed with an escalator system integral to the look and flow of the building.
To enhance aesthetics component part colours and materials can be specified to blend with a building or create a bold statement. The classic black handrail can also be specified in a variety of bright colours, balustrade options include glass, aluminum, bronze or steel, and lighting options can create a striking visual impact.
