GY and GY 20 - step gap lighting

Another optional safety device, the step gap lighting can serve as guidance to particularly visually impaired persons when entering the escalator.

In the upper and lower section of the step bands, an LED step gap lightning is positioned. When driving, the continuous movement gap-step-gap will cause a flashing effect. Through this safety installation, the passenger will know before entering the steps, if it is in use, and in which direction (up or down) it goes. The available colour varieties are red, green, yellow and blue. Colour-changing LED’s are not recommended, due to possible irritation.
