Lead Escalator / public Escalator

Lead Escalator
Lead Escalator

Escalator is a common public facility we use every day in public places such as train stations. And it’s also common that people take a wrong direction while taking escalator because it’s hard to distinguish the upstairs from downstairs, it’s almost the same. This phenomenon causes passengers pushing and falling over.
Lead Escalator reminds passengers the correct direction that escalator goes to by the arrow sign site on escalator’s rotating handle. People could distinguish the direction from far. Makes taking escalator safer.
