Our patented Escalator Access Podium is a unique compact and easy to use system ideal for providing access above and around escalators and travellators within department stores, shopping centres, train and underground stations.
The system components are manufactured from lightweight structural aluminium sections, pre-fabricated in the form of modular box frames; which when assembled and mounted in a tower format on an escalator, are secured at four locations on to the escalator handrails, to form a secure, stable and safe working platform at height. Taking under 10 minutes to set-up and no tools required to assemble, the Escalator Access Podium can be quickly installed, providing access to light fittings, decorations or any items mounted above an escalator requiring essential maintenance or replacement, where previously, access has proved to be difficult and unsafe.
Due to its innovative design, the Escalator Access Podium can be safely erected and installed by two operatives, without the need to raise any components to an unsafe or precarious level. The modules are assembled and installed in a simple to understand procedure, using tethered pins and special fittings to make secure.
For ease of storage of the equipment when not in use, the Escalator Access Podium modules are designed to nest inside each other to form an easy manoeuvrable, single mobile, rubber wheeled unit that can be effortlessly and efficiently moved to any location requiring its use.
