Duplex Escalator


What is a Duplex Escalator?

The Duplex Escalator is a modified version of the world renowned Duplex floor scrubber that has been specifically developed for fast easy cleaning of escalators and travellators. Available in two sizes referring to brush width, 350mm & 550mm, the Duplex Escalator will actually clean escalators while they run.

With a Duplex Escalator 350/550 cleaning an escalator is as simple as:
  • Step 1: Position the Duplex Escalator at the base of the escalator with the thin side next to the edge,
  • Step 2: Hold in place and complete two dry cycles to sweep up dry dust,
  • Step 3: Complete two low moisture scrubbing cycles to remove grime,
  • Step 4: Reverse the machine and repeat the process.
  • Step 5: Reverse so the thin side is contacting the other edge of the escalator.

In general a typical sized escalator takes about 30 minutes to sweep and deep clean the steps.

What is a Duplex Escalator?

The Duplex Escalator 350/550 is a purpose built machine for cleaning escalators.
Unlike other machine for cleaning escalators the Duplex Escalator 350/550 machine actually cleans the escalator steps as it operates.
This is possible through a patented guide rail system that allows the user to keep the machine operating smoothly in the one position.
As escalators are cleaned whilst they move the Duplex Escalator 350/550 produce very efficient cleaning results.

What makes Duplex Escalator so effective?

The Duplex Escalator combines dry sweeping and low moisture scrubbing to attain new standards of escalator cleaning. Firsty, the dual contra rotating extra long brushes penetrate deep into the escaltor treads to remove dry dust. This is followed by a low moisture scrub to remove stubborn grime without over-wetting the escalator mechanisms. A patented guide rail system also ensures that the Duplex Escalator tracks perfectly on the escalator.

To clean an escalator with a Duplex Escalator 350/550 you will need to:

  • Step 1:   Position the Duplex Escalator 350/550 with the thin side (side with least space between brush and wall) to the edge of the escalator step.
  • Step 2:   Connect a vacuum to the recover tank lid and do a dry scrubbing cycle to remove dust from the escalator step treads.
  • Step 3:  After dry sweeping remove the vacuum. Then give a low moisture scrub to remove more stubborn grime.
  • Step 4:   Apply water by squeezing the water trigger for 1 second, then releasing for 1 second. Deep cleaning may take a couple of cycles of the escaltor to complete.
  • Step 5:   As an escaltor is usually wider than the Duplex Escalator 350/550, the machine will need to be turned and moved to the adjacent side of the escalator step.
  • Step 6:   Once repositioned repeat steps 2 & 3. This usually takes approximately 30 minutes as a couple of passes are required on each side.
