The Difference Between Autowalks, Escalator and Elevator

I. autowalks
Conveyor for continuous transportation of personnel in the direction of horizontal or inclined angle not more than 12 °. The structure is similar to the escalator, which is mainly composed of two parts: movable pavement and handrail. The rated speed of the autowalks shall not exceed 0.75m/s. The width of the moving autowalks shall not be less than 580mm and not more than 1100mm. For the autowalks with an inclination of not more than 6 °, a larger width is allowed.

The characteristic of the automatic autowalks is that it can not only meet the needs of large passenger flow, but also meet the needs of frequent back and forth movement of shopping carts in supermarkets.

The escalator is composed of ladder road and handrails on both sides. The width of the escalator is divided into three types: 1 m 0.8 m 0.6 m, and the operation angle is generally 27.3 °, 30 °, 35 °. The rated speed of escalator shall not exceed 0.75m/s when the inclination angle is not more than 30 ° and 0.50m/s when the inclination angle is not more than 30 ° and not more than 35 °.

III. elevator:
The utility model relates to a vertical elevator powered by an electric motor, which is equipped with a box shaped pod, and is used for carrying people or goods in a multi-storey building.
