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.


According to the DIN EN 115-1:2018-01 the speed of an escalator is depending on the lifting height and the angle of inclination of the escalator. At an angle of inclination of up to 30 ° the rated speed is max. 0.75 m/s. If the angle of inclination a is maximum 30 ° and up to 35 °, the rated speed should not exceed 0,5 m/s. It should be considered that escalators with a inclination angle of 35 ° may only be used up to a delivery height of 6m. From the table below you can see the speed in relation with the head and the tilt angle:
