Escalator brushes are installed on the sides of escalators and moving walkways to keep people from standing too close to the edges. Loose, low-hanging clothing, shoelaces, soft-soled shoes, and other such items are at risk for becoming caught in the moving track or moving stairs, so these brushes are designed to provide a gentle reminder for people to stand at a safe distance from the moving edges. Common examples of places where these brushes are in use include:
Keeping pedestrians safely away from the gap between the escalator or moving track and the sidewall prevents injuries and ensures safety standard compliance with state and federal regulations.
