Here are five plans to arrange electric escalators (FUJI Electric Escalator) strategically in different buildings:
A. Single unit:
The single unit is used to link two levels. It is suitable for buildings with passenger traffic flowing mainly in one direction. Flexible adjustment to traffic flow is possible.(for example: up in the morning and down in the evening)
B. Continuous arrangement (one-way traffic)
The arrangement is used mainly in smaller department stores to link three sales levels. It requires more space than the interrupted arrangement.
C. Interrupted arrangement (one-way traffic)
This arrangement is somewhat inconvenient for users, but advantageous for department store owners, since the short detour to the next unit and the spatial separation between up and down travel is ideal for leading customers to see advertising displays.
D. Crisscross, continuous arrangement (two-way traffic)
This arrangement is used mainly in major department stores, public buildings and public transport buildings where transport times between several levels should be kept to a minimum.
E. Parallel, interrupted arrangement (two-way traffic)
This arrangement is used mainly in department stores and public transport buildings with a heavy traffic volume. When there are three or more than three escalators, it should be possible to reverse the traveling direction according to the traffic flow. This arrangement is economical, since inner lateral cladding are not required.
