Escalator Bollards - Adaptive Safety
The Australian escalators and elevators market stood at $295.5 million in 2018 and is projected to reach $410.7 million by 2024.
With a growing number of escalators popping up around the nation, it is important we ensure that these heavy machines are safe to use.
Most accidents on escalators are caused by user behaviour and not following safety guidelines.
At the start of the year, a dog had her paw get stuck in an escalator on the Gold Coast and
was rushed to surgery, experiencing extensive damage to both legs.
To avoid injury and damage, Australian Bollards have suggested the use of our Australian Standard Escalator Bollards.
These bollards are placed in the centre or at the sides on the top and bottom of escalators to restrict trolleys, prams, wheelchairs, scooters, and more.
The Escalator Bollards are best used when accompanied with an AB-Safety Sticker to identify the do’s and don'ts for escalator use, ensuring safe use from everyone who comes into contact with the machinery.
It is a sleek stainless steel bollard which does not require much space, so it can be easily installed in areas with high foot traffic.
These stainless steel Escalator Bollards are applicable in sporting facilities, supermarkets, shopping centres, large stores, airports, museums, libraries and anywhere else you may want to install an escalator.
The pre-emptive measures ensure that the escalator can not be compromised, preventing possible injuries and property damage.
They also manage foot traffic flow, preventing people from pushing onto the stairs from the side.
Similarly, Australian bollards also offer stainless steel flexible bollards (AB-FLX50-S).
The AB-FLX50-S bollard is manufactured with a flexible insert in the lower part of the post providing it with flexible properties to avoid damage to the bollards if and when they collide with trolleys, baggage and more.
Standing at a height of 900mm, it does not require much space so it can be easily installed in areas with high foot traffic and does not stop the free flow of movement.
