Whether it’s our passengers, our customers or our colleagues, we put people at the centre of everything we do
Our escalators are safe, reliable and designed to integrate seamlessly with your building. Our moving walks are engineered to be whisper quiet and smooth. Both are custom-made to complement your building’s unique environment.
Designed to meet the extreme and varied demands of public spaces such as airports, metros and busy transport hubs, our escalators and moving walks raise the bar for endurance and reliability. You can expect at least 20 years of efficient, safe service without downtime from our products in classic public ‘hot spots’.
Gone are the days of being hidden from view; today’s escalators and moving walks take pride of place in public and commercial spaces. They help define the way people experience these buildings.
Style and substance merge perfectly in our escalators and moving walks. The elegantly tapered handrail entry box minimises the risk of passenger contact. The sweeping lines of our elongated newels give passengers more time to grasp the handrail before getting on.
Energy-efficient LEDs offer a choice of coloured lighting for handrails, balustrades and skirt panels. Traffic flow lights give passengers subtle directional cues.
With one of the widest selections of finishes for steps, balustrades and railings, our products are designed to harmonise with and enhance any building or project.
From design to manufacturing, we strive to keep you safe and moving.
Our unique Multifunction Escalator Safety Device [MESD] exceeds code safety requirements. An advanced electronic safety system activates brakes quickly and consistently when it detects an issue.
Our handrail entry box design provides exceptional levels of safety and strength. Its tapered design minimises the risk of passengers touching the deflectors, while safety brushes gently guide passengers away from the skirt panels. The skirt panels themselves reduce friction to stop objects from getting caught.
Otis escalators® use rectangular steel trusses to increase their strength. Seal welds protect them against internal corrosion.
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.
We use a computerised assembly jig for precise alignment of the tension carriage, track system and main drive.
Our escalators and moving walks embrace sustainability. Our smart lubrication system uses up to 98 percent less oil than manual lubrication systems. 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.
