5.5 Inclination of escalators

KONE escalators are available with three angles
of inclination: 27.3°, 30° and 35°.

27.3° inclination

• The normal angle for a staircase

• Ideal when the escalator is installed adjacent to a
staircase as it provides a good alignment between
the escalator truss and the staircase

• Recommended for infrastructure escalators

30° inclination

• This popular inclination offers a good compromise
between passenger comfort, safety and the overall
length of the escalator

• Used in both commercial and infrastructure
applications

35° inclination

• Offers the most compact dimensions

• Preferable when space is restricted on site

• Offers the lowest capital cost for a given vertical rise

• Common in retail applications


The maximum angle of inclination under
EN 115-1:2008 is 35°, subject to the
following restrictions:

• The vertical rise must not exceed 6000 mm

• The step band speed must not exceed 0.5 m/s

If other inclinations are required, please
contact the local KONE sales representative.

Figure 5.8 The relationship between inclination angle and overall
vertical/horizontal dimensions of escalators.

Escalators with a 30° angle of inclination or less are
permitted at any step band speed (up to the EN 115-
1:2008 maximum of 0.75 m/s) or vertical rise.

For speeds above 0.65 m/s, the minimum lower
radius of 2.0 and the minimum upper radius of 2.6 are
mandatory, with a minimum of 4 horizontal steps.

5.6 Inclination of autowalks

Figure 5.9 The relationship between inclination angle and overall vertical/
horizontal dimensions of inclined autowalks.

For KONE autowalks, four angles of
inclination are available: 0°, 10°, 11° and 12°.

Horizontal autowalks

By definition, a horizontal autowalk has a 0°
inclination, although we also provide horizontal
autowalks with a slight inclination for uneven
surfaces up to 6°. A horizontal autowalk is
normally used in airports or exhibition centers
for the horizontal movement of passengers.

Inclined autowalks

Inclined autowalks tend to be used in preference
to escalators in buildings where shopping
or baggage trolleys are used and need to be
transported by passengers between two floors,
for example railway stations or supermarkets.
When trolleys are to be transported, special
trolley rollers need to be used. The use of suitably
designed shopping trolleys (according to
EN 1929-2 and EN 1929-4) and baggage carts on
inclined autowalks is permitted.

10°, 11° and 12° inclinations are possible.
When space is restricted on site, 12° autowalks
are preferable as they offer the most compact
dimensions. The most frequently installed
inclination is 12°.
