    This document represents a common viewpoint of those parties concerned with its provisions, namely operating/ planning agencies, manufacturers, consultants, engineers and general interest groups. The application of any standards, recommended practices or guidelines contained herein is voluntary. In some cases, federal and/or state regulations govern portions of a transit system’s operations. In those cases, the government regulations take precedence over this standard. The North American Transit Services Association (NATSA) and its parent organization APTA recognize that for certain applications, the standards or practices, as implemented by individual agencies, may be either more or less restrictive than those given in this document.

    Heavy-Duty Escalator Design Guidelines Abstract: This Recommended Practice contains guidelines for transit systems to use to specify heavy-duty

    escalators for use in a transit environment.

    Keywords: escalators, heavy-duty escalators, transit escalators

    Summary: This design guideline is the result of the combined efforts of the members of the APTA Elevator

    and Escalator Technical Forum over the past several years. The objective is to address the specific heavy-duty

    escalator needs of North American transportation systems. It is intended as a guideline of technical provisions

    for the design and construction of escalators that can provide safe, reliable service in the harsh, heavy-usage,

    high-abuse environment of transportation systems. Membership of the Technical Forum includes

    transportation systems, consultants and escalator/component manufacturers.

    Scope and purpose: This design guideline is not intended to be a 100 percent ready technical specification

    for all transportation systems. Transit agencies may find it necessary to make changes to suit their specific

    needs. However, the stringent provisions are the result of the members’ combined experiences and, in general,

    reflect transportation requirements and the need for improved safety and reliability. There are also notes and

    comments in the text to guide the user in preparation of a procurement specification document.
