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.
