Escalator Kindmover


Kindly designed for everyone

The "Kindmover" escalator incorporates numerous universal design features based on the concepts of "Kind to passengers and Kind to maintenance-persons" for the materialization of a new escalator that is both easy to use and easy to maintain.

SOLUTIONS for Energy Saving

Application of LED Lightings

LED lightings is applied at the skirt guard, step demarcation and comb.
LED lightings has longer life span, more energysaving compared to the fluorescent lightings, Besides, it is environmentally friendly because it is mercury-free.

Contribute to energy and CO2 reduction Poleless Automatic Operation (Optional)

When passengers are not using the escalator, it automatically changes to low speed standby mode. If sensor detects a passenger, escalator will gradually accelerate to its rated speed. *This optional operation can be installed without any truss extension.
Pole-less Automatic Operation is *30% less energy consumption compared to conventional model.

*Truss size may extend due to other additional options.
*Estimated energy consumption calculation : Escalator is in operation at rated speed for 15 times per 1 hour. (Escalator Floor height is 5 meters.) Rated speed continues for two minutes in total when active.

Lighting System At The Skirt Guard (Optional)

The lighting system at the skirt guard is to provide better visibility at the steps. Thus, enhancing the safety of the passengers. The lighting system is also acting as a part of aesthetic of the escalator. It is recommended for the TypeS (slim) escalator, which does not have balustrade lighting.

SOLUTIONS for Safety and Universal Design

The "Kindmover" Escalator Creates a New Standard for Buildings.

Escalator Operation Monitor For Passenger-Friendly Guidance(Optional)


"Arrow signs" and "No entry symbols" displayed on the operation monitor indicate the escalator's operation direction to the passengers and provide passenger-friendly guidance.
Furthermore, when the activation of a safety device stops escalator operation, the location of the activated safety device is shown on the operation monitor so that the maintenance staff can find the problem as quickly as possible.

High Contrast Design Provides High Visibility and Safety

The yellow color of the combs enhances the contrast against the black color of the steps and the landing plate, making it easy for the passengers to distinguish the moving steps from the stationary landing plate.

Safety Cleat System At The Landing Plate

At the horizontal section of the landing, two steps engage and the gap between the steps is reduced so as to prevent objects from getting caught.

Skirt Deflector

Skirt deflector can be installed to prevent passenger from being caught between the steps and skirt guard.

Smart Deck Design using no outwardly protruding screws

The advanced design uses no exposed screws for securing the section between the deck board and the skirt guard as a measure for preventing clothing from getting caught and other similar problems.

Higher Inlet Position for Greater Clearance

Designed with the inlet in a higher position than conventional escalators in order to prevent objects from getting caught in the inlet.

Easier Access to Operation Panel

The operation panel, including the emergency stop button and key switch, is located nearer to the landing plate for easy and safe operation.

Environmental issue

In order to propose safe and secure escalator, Kindmover focuses on environmental issue.
The advance technologies for energy consumption and resource saving concept offers high concerns for environmental consciousness.

Energy Saving

Pole-less Automatic Operation
Pole-less Automatic Operation is *30% less energy consumption compared to conventional model.

*Truss size may extend due to other additional options. *Estimated energy consumption calculation :
Escalator is in operation at rated speed for 15 times per 1 hour. (Escalator floor height is 5 meters.)
Rated speed continues for two minutes total when active.

Reducing hazardous materials

Lead-Free design
Reduction of lead use by employing lead free control board.

Employing LED lightings
By employing LED light, various materials used for light become mercury free.

Lead-free Design of Base Plate, RoHS Compliance and Elimination of Specific Chemical Substances (15 Classifications)

Continuous concern on the RoHS compliance,
eliminating 15 classifications of specific chemical substances, and using the lead-free technique for main circuit boards.
