Upgrades for performance, safety and reliability

Schindler offers upgrades in all areas: safety, performance, design, function, energy and appearance to make your escalators run smoother, safer and more reliably.

Schindler Escalator Upgrades

Safety upgrades

Escalator skirt brushes
Brushes mounted on the stationary skirts, just above the moving steps, help keep passengers from placing their feet against the step-skirt interface. In some jurisdictions, tests are required and adding skirt brushes may be mandatory.

Safety combfingers for escalators
It’s important that passengers entering and exiting an escalator clearly see the point where the stationary combplate meets the moving steps. Bright yellow combfingers help call attention to this important transition area.

Step demarcation lighting
This under-step lighting helps passengers notice the “break” between steps, encouraging them to stand solidly on a single step.

Safety signage
There are a few important safe-riding rules that every passenger should follow. Our attractive signs can be added to any escalator to give riders these important messages.

Escalator handrail performance
Upgrades reduce handrail wear and friction and improve reliability.
