Every one degree reduction in escalator slope will result in more safety

An important factor resulted in escalator unsafety goes to the larger escalator slope in China, and escalators are mostly in a cliffy shape.
To cater for human body mechanics and habits, China has still been seeking for a technical transformation to existing escalators by reducing the slope, so that accidents would not be likely to take place due to the cliffy equipment. Escalators which have a slope of less than 30 degree should be manufactured and adopted, such as those ones with a slope of 27.3 degree, engineering technologists noted.
Apart from the modification of elevator manufacturing technology suitable for body mechanics, it’s also important to guide people to use elevators and escalators in a proper way and to introduce elevator safety and management rules.
