Bringing the visual appearance of your escalator in line with your building’s look and feel – or turning it into an eye-catching feature – couldn’t be easier. You can replace any or all of the balustrades, access covers, comb plates, skirts and decking, cleaning and balancing steps, as well as the lighting.



It’s important to make sure your escalators comply with all relevant local standards. We offer various solutions for bringing your equipment up to date, including brush deflector systems, dynamic braking, and additional safety signage.
