The continued success for over 50 years of the SMI group in multi-directional transportation are a testament to the attention given to detail.
From the early stages in design, much attention was given to travel comfort. The vibrations induced on the mechanical parts have been minimized and generate the least noise. While riding the SMI escalators and walkways, customers will appreciate the lightness in movement.
Handrail and step colours together with lighting systems can be customized to enhance your style needs. Stainless steel or aluminium footboards can be personalized with any logo.
The high quality of the materials and the possibilities of customization ensure that each SMI project is unique. The handrail, the banister, the external cladding and the deep grooves of the pedestrian surfaces all contribute to a relaxed customer experience.
The use of intelligent photocell technology at each end of the escalator and the moving walkway ensures a slow restart of the traction engine from stand-by enhancing the customer experience when the escalator restarts.
The advanced technology of the engine chosen for SMI escalators and moving walkways allows for a 30% savings with respect to traditional motors. Our small contribution for the safety of our planet.
The intelligent technology embedded in SMI escalators and moving walkways insures the exact and prompt lubrication during the lifetime of each unit. Thanks to this approach, the lubrication of the chains is timely, constant and uniform. All the components work in ideal conditions and safety is enhanced.
QSS: Quick step substitution
The steps and pallets of the SMI escalators and moving platforms have been designed to be easily substituted with reduced waste. This feature reduces the time for substitution and increases the time of operation.
SMI escalators and moving walkways can be equipped with Stop&go technology. In the absence of passengers, the coordinated use of intelligent photocells placed at each end of the escalator and moving walkway slows the speed to 0,2m/s and ultimately stops the movement. This allows for significant savings in energy consumption and an efficient use of the materials and mechanical parts.
