A clear distinction can be made between escalators for a commercial environment and escalators for public transportation environment. Commercial escalators and inclined autowalks play a vital role in routing shoppers to particular shops or specific aisles in a store. In public transportation environments, the challenge is to get passengers and their luggage to their destination on time.
Different types of escalators and autowalks have their own strengths, as shown in the table below, which will help you understand whether you need an escalator or an autowalk or both.
