Key benefits

Victoria escalator - Exceptional rise

Incredible reach

Victoria excels in the most challenging modern urban environments. With an impressive maximum travel height of 75 metres, Victoria safely and easily transports people to the deepest metro stations and highest atriums or platforms.

Victoria escalator - Powerful step chain

Smoothest ride quality

Victoria’s approximately 101-millimetre chain pitch minimises the polygon effect and ensures the smoothest ride quality. Its powerful step chain rollers can be replaced individually, reducing both your maintenance and costs.

Victoria escalator - Tough components

Built to last

Victoria’s heavy-duty components, including its skirts, decking and handrail tracks, are made of stainless steel. This enables Victoria to easily handle heavy loads in any climate.

Victoria escalator - Convenient handrail drive

Greater efficiency

Heavy-duty environments and high rises stress an escalator’s handrail. Positioning Victoria’s handrail drive in the newel, combined with its wedge-shaped handrail, improves both the grip and efficiency as well as increases the component’s lifespan.

Tough never looked so good

Victoria is designed to be the toughest kid on the block. At the same time, a wide range of customisable design options, including diverse outer claddings and handrail drive positions such as in the newel, ensure that your heavy-duty escalator is a great-looking one as well.

Victoria’s stainless steel front skirt stands up to the impact of trolleys and carts. A unique handrail inlet, with its two-way flap system, gives the skirt a streamlined look. It also eliminates the need for unsightly rubbers and brushes as well as improves availability thanks to its kick-resistant safety contact.

Balustrade

Robust balustrade

This 10-millimetre tempered safety glass balustrade comes with a robust decking profile attached to the top of the glass panes. Available in several glass colours, it’s a perfect fit for an open design concept.

Metal Balustrade

Metal balustrade

This angle-fitted closed balustrade is made from bevelled steel plates. Available in different finishes and colours, the sturdy-looking balustrade is well suited to industrial urban designs.

sandwich balustrade

Sandwich balustrade

Featuring a sandwich construction with a stainless steel cover, this sleek, vandal-resistant balustrade is ideal for modern traffic applications.

In traffic applications, lighting is key for guiding passengers, increasing their safety and optimising your infrastructure’s capacity. An important consideration in modern architecture, lighting also influences our mood and enhances urban environments.

Safety lights: Step gap or comb plates

Blue or green step gap lighting, along with comb plate lights at the entrance and exit, ensures passenger safety and adds to your escalator’s visual appeal.

Aesthetic lights: Skirt band or balustrade

LEDs in light-diffusing channels, the full range of RGB colours and different modes of operation create stunning effects above the skirt band or under the handrail.

Aesthetic lights: Truss

Truss lighting in the full range of RGB colours and different modes of operation let you showcase Victoria’s structural sophistication.

Aesthetic lights: Soffit cladding

Spots, light strips or fully illuminated claddings light up the area below the escalator and accentuate your entire building. You can also integrate patterns to put a unique finishing touch on your building’s lighting concept.

Traffic lights: Column

In crowded traffic applications, a traffic light column improves visibility even from far away and helps ensure the smooth flow of people.

Traffic lights: Floor plate

This eye-catching, self-adjusting, robust floor plate light improves visibility, especially for people with impaired vision.

Traffic lights: Robust balustrade

On the Robust balustrade, the standard traffic light is located in the inner decking for enhanced visibility. Or you can choose an eye-catching lighting option that illuminates the newel, highlighting the elegant handrail drive.

Traffic lights: Newel

On the Metal balustrade, the standard traffic light is integrated into the newel for optimal visibility from every angle. No extra traffic light column is needed.

Striking handrails

Whether you prefer rubber or synthetic materials, you’ll find the perfect handrail in a wide range of RAL colours. We’ll even help you brand your handrail.

Stunning steps

As standard options, you can choose between black or silver steps with or without yellow demarcation lines. If you want something more extravagant, we’ll make sure you get that too.

Eye-catching comb and cover plates

A variety of patterns and colours for combs and cover plates, in combination with accentuating comb segments, enhance passenger safety while ensuring a distinctive look.

Powerful details, exceptional product quality

Victoria’s powerful performance is the result of meticulous engineering, select features and refined components. Carefully crafted and manufactured using our advanced production systems, Victoria delivers both an amazing product experience and a sustainable return on your investment.

Handrail drive: Conveniently located

Victoria’s handrail drive can be located in the newel outside of the supporting structure, an indispensable option for higher heights that offers multiple benefits.

Easy access

Great maintainability

The handrail drive is readily accessed for maintenance without needing to remove any steps. As a result, the chain is easily adjusted through a sprocket and the handrail is tensioned via a compression spring.

Less handrail bending

Great durability

Having the handrail drive in the newel reduces handrail bending, thanks to the large guiding radii, and increases the component’s life expectancy.

Simple handrail exchange

Optimal availability

When the handrail reaches its end of life, it’s rapidly replaced within the balustrade using a lock, ensuring minimal downtime.

Step chain: Tough on the outside

The high-precision rolled flat link hardened chains are specifically manufactured for our escalators and come with different breaking loads to ensure stability under any condition.

Step chain pitch

Excellent ride quality

Victoria’s approximately 101-millimetre small chain pitch enables the chain to slide smoothly on our best-in-class track system, minimising the polygon effect for the best possible ride quality.

Even traction on rollers

Reduced wear and tear

Locating the step chain rollers outside of the step chain means that the traction is more evenly distributed and the lifespan of each roller significantly increased.

Outside roller

Quicker roller exchanges

In the unlikely event that a roller needs to be changed, each roller can be replaced individually without opening the chain, keeping any downtime to a minimum.

Sustainable performance, day in, day out

We strive to continuously improve our escalators’ performance and sustainability. This includes increasing our operational efficiency while reducing the resources and materials we use as well as the waste we produce.

Energy efficiency class

Highest energy efficiency Class A+++

Based on the ISO 25745-3 standard and depending on your final configuration, Victoria delivers the highest energy efficiency.

Energy-saving features

Up to 90% reduction in energy consumption

Victoria’s LED lighting cuts energy consumption by up to 90%. You can further reduce the escalator’s CO2 footprint by opting for different operating modes like intermittent operation or for energy-efficiency features like Smart VVVF.

Latest motor technology

Premium efficiency motors

Our state-of-the-art premium efficiency motors reduce power consumption, have longer lifespans and minimise maintenance.

ETA drive

Increased efficiency, reduced maintenance

With its 96% efficiency and lubrication lasting 40,000 hours, our ETA drive is good news for both you and the environment.

Direct drive

Great lifespan and maintainability

With its pre-oiled gearbox, our chainless spur gear drive option is quiet and durable as well as eliminates any chain-related maintenance.
