GY and GY20- Emergency shutdown centrally

With escalators longer than 30 meters

According to DIN EN 115-1:2018-01 Section 5.12.2.2.3.1, the escalators have to be equipped with clearly visible manual emergency shutdowns, which will enable to stop the escalator in an emergency immediately. So that these emergency shutdowns are easily accessible, the mounting is recommended at the beginning and end of the escalators. The visual design is arranged in section 7.2.1.2.2.

At bigger distances, additional emergency stops need to be built in (preferably in the middle). With long escalators the distances between the emergency shutdowns must not exceed 30m.
