Quality above and beyond

When your equipment transports the equivalent of the world’s entire population every three days, its quality must be without equal. It is.

  • 1 Unmatched construction

    Otis® escalators use rectangular steel trusses to increase their strength. Seal welds protect them against internal corrosion.

  • 2 Rigorous testing

    Escalator steps are subjected to dynamic load testing not only 5 million times as normally required, but 20 million times. All our facilities conduct step breakage tests too, ensuring step quality and durability.

  • 3 Step chain assembly

    We use a computerised assembly jig for precise alignment of the tension carriage, track system and main drive.

Sustainable sophistication

Defining standards – our safest, most comfortable, and sustainable escalators and moving walks.

Our escalators and moving walks embrace sustainability. Our smart lubrication system uses up to 98 percent less oil and keeps your escalator or moving walk running smoothly. Standby ETA+ or intermittent operational modes, plus LED lighting further reduce energy consumption. In addition, ReGen® drives capture energy when the escalator or moving walk goes down, returning it to your power grid.
