Hitachi is the first in the industry to introduce stainless-steel moving sidewalk and escalator steps – they are pressed from stainless steel sheets. The higher strength of stainless steel prevents the step surface or riser from being deformed by umbrella tips or other sharp objects. This substantially extends the lifespan of the steps.
The width and thickness of the "slim" handrail have both been reduced to make it easier for all passengers to grip, especially for children. This is just one more example of the attention Hitachi pays to the convenience of passengers.
The components of the Moving Sidewalk steps, deck covers, landing plates and handrail frames, etc., adopt a stainless steel finish so that the Moving Sidewalks are sturdier and more beautiful.
Aiming for "Easy Access for Everyone", each little part is designed on the concept of "Universal Design".
The edges on both sides of the step are 8 mm higher, and the upper part of the edge tread is diagonally cut. This decreases contact between passengers’ shoes and the Moving Sidewalk skirt guard.
