640.DESIGN OF ESCALATORS AND FOLLOWING SAFETY MEASURES
Keywords:escalators, safety elements, design
AbstractTransport of people in buildings and at relatively short distances is possible by escalators. Escalators have a great application in the transport of the people and they represent an important part of vertical transport. As escalators are used at all ages, it is necessary to design them to be safe. Due to the large number of moving parts and the complicated construction of the escalator, it is necessary to perform periodic checks and controls of their correctness and safety for the transport of people. The paper gives an overview of the basic elements of escalators, and some potential dangers and appropriate safety measures for their prevention.
