The escalator is a combination of a special-structured chain conveyor and two special-structured belt conveyors with a circular motion ladder for up or down between different levels of the building. A fixed electric drive device that tilts to transport passengers. A continuous conveying machine that carries people up and down.
Outdoor escalator requires high degree of protection, electrical considerations for waterproofing, metal components for corrosion protection, rubber products for sun protection and aging, drainage is also considered, and heating systems are required for low temperatures.
It can transport passengers continuously and has greater transportation capacity than elevators. It is widely used in places where commercial buildings and various public transportation places are concentrated.
