Single Discontinuous Escalators
Collection of drawings of the front, side, and plan of Single Discontinuous Escalators

Single discontinuous escalators are stacked escalators that connect levels in a single direction. This strategy works best when space is limited, but the one-way traffic is not efficient for people who want to travel quickly between levels. Single discontinuous escalators are generally used in small department stores and retail centers where the non-continuous arrangement encourages customers to slow down and explore more of the store. This discontinuous strategy can also be used with paired escalators.

Single Crossing Escalators

Crossing escalator arrangements provide the most efficient and continuous movement of people by separating each direction of travel into an individual uninterrupted path. Alternating directions in systematic structural stacks, crisscrossing escalators should be considered when space planning and productivity are critical design objectives. The crossing escalator is most effective when servicing building programs that require fast travel between levels such as moving employees in large department stores, between floors of an office building, and for time sensitive public transportation centers.

Moving Walkways

Moving walkways, or moving sidewalks, conveyors or travelators, are motorized continuously moving horizontal or low-inclined surfaces that transport people over short to medium distances. Easy to use by either standing or walking, moving walkways are commonly used in airports, public transportation stations, densely populated cities, museums, zoos, theme parks, retail stores, theater sets, and ski resorts.

Moving walkways can be designed for various customizable lengths depending on use. Handrails of 3’ | .91 m must be maintained throughout the entire length of the walkway. For structural support, a supporting truss with a depth of 3’6” | 1.07 must also span the length of the moving walkway.

Paired Continuous Escalators
Drawings illustrating Paired Continuous Escalators in side, front, and plan views

Paired continuous escalator systems combine two sets of single continuous escalator systems side-by-side. Though inefficient in space planning, this system creates a consolidated and functional destination within a floorpan that allows direct access to multiple floors. Paired continuous layouts can be stacked vertically to further systematize a path of effective travel in buildings requiring productivity and access to various floors. This strategy works best in vertical offices, large department stores, and public transportation centers that can benefit from an efficient bank of escalators.

Paired Discontinuous Escalators

Paired discontinuous escalators are stacked parallel banks of escalators that connect levels in both directions. Like single discontinuous escalators, but with a second adjacent escalator traveling in the opposite direction, this strategy is not efficient for people looking to travel quickly between levels as the circulation requires the user to travel to the opposite landing to continue moving vertically. Paired discontinuous escalators are generally used in small department stores and retail centers where the arrangement requires that customers spend more time inside the retail space.

Escalator & Moving Walkway Widths

The widths of escalators and moving walkways can be adjusted to meet various demands of pedestrian traffic, use, travel speed, and distance. When calibrating the appropriate width of an escalator or moving walkway, three standard design widths for use are 24”, 32”, 40” | 61, 82, 102 cm. 24” | 61 cm widths are suitable for only one person at a time and are best used when traffic is limited or space is a concern. 32” | 82 cm wide designs offers more flexibility for the users and allow enough space for a second person to pass by. 40” | 102 cm widths provide space for two people and also are wide enough for two lanes of traffic.
