Escalators and Moving Walks Based on the Installation EnvironmentEscalators and moving walks divide into three categories based on their area of installation:
IndoorIndoor escalators and moving walks are suitable for closed environments, where there is control over the ambient temperature. Therefore, these types of escalators and moving walks are not subject to elements such as rain and snow.
Semi OutdoorInstall these types of escalators and moving walks outside the building; nonetheless, they have roofs above them to protect against the direct downpour of rain and snow. Obviously, since these escalators and moving walks are outside the building, they are not in a temperature-controlled environment. Therefore, in comparison to the indoor escalators, they have some additional optional extras, based on the geographic location of the installation environment. Examples of these optional extras include coolers, which cools down the device in high-temperature situations, or heater, which heats the device in low-temperature conditions.
To enhance the performance of the escalators and moving walks, based on the geographical location and customer requirements, there are specific optional extras to choose from.
