Construction of the escalator F - ECO Drive

The construction of our mall type escalators F-ECO Drive were tested from “TÜV Süd” and according to EN DIN 115-1:2018-01 (Sicherheit von Fahrtreppen und Fahrsteigen - Teil 1: Konstruktion und Einbau) and the current “Maschinenrichtlinie 2006/42/EG”. In addition, the calculated values of the load and the construction​were reviewed again manually by means of software by the TÜV Süd structural engineers for handling technology.


All the components of the escalator are fitted on the shoring. The metal frame is made of high-strength, form resistant angle steel painted with corrosion protection, which has a high strength and low deformation. Both structural parts are connected with U-profile steel and sheet steel. A reliable safety of the frame is ensured by using inert gas welding technology and fault detection by ultrasound and magnetic powder. At the support point are elastomeric pads that reduce the transfer of vibration between the support bracket of the structure and the surface of the pillars of the building. The whole structure is protected by full-surface corrosion on RAL 5000 protection paint against rust and pitting.
