Safer escalator / escalator

Safer escalator
Safer escalator

Some people have a fear of escalators, especially the elderly and children. Most of them only pay attention to the yellow border of the pallet,but forgot to hand on the correct position of handrail.It is the main reason why they lose their balance.The escalator corresponds to the location of the handrail and step tread marked with the same color.Thus, they will first hand on handrail, and then step on the same color of the step tread.It has contrasting colors between the step tread.Both can greatly enhance the sense of security on escalators.The pallet of the escalator can be used for advertising to make full use of the escalator.
