Speed and safety are not a contradiction in terms

Reference: Auckland International Airport, New Zealand

Walking from the departure gate to immigration can be lengthy and tiring, however Auckland International Airport boasts seven Schindler 9500 moving walks to assist passengers in reaching their destination more comfortably.

All moving walks and escalators in the airport are fitted with energy saving variable speed drives. Due to the periods of inactivity between flights, the units will slow down to a crawl speed after 2 minutes if no passengers are detected. After a further 2 minutes of no passenger demand the units will stop completely. Approaching passengers are detected by a radar system and light beams at each entry point. The units then ramp up to full speed automatically.

This automatic operation gives the Airport huge cost savings on power consumption. The reduced wear on the mechanical moving parts also reduces the maintenance requirements and therefore the downtime.
