Safety-Escalator / Safety-Escalator


Safety-Escalator uses a handrail protrusion to warn passengers that the ride is almost over.When riding an escalator, people who have a visual impairment face the difficulty of judging precisely when they should take a step off the moving escalator. Misjudging this moment can lead to dangerous stumbles. A loss of footing can also occur to people who are simply not paying attention.Safety-Escalator provides a warning that the interface between the escalator and the floor is approaching. The protrusion is part of the static handrail structure, and the moving rubber lining glides over it smoothly.
