Blue Safety Feet

A new innovation which is helping in the reduction of accidents on escalators. A proven initiative which in some cases can reduce accidents and incidents by up-to 66%!

The process is similar to the yellow safety demarcation application, and is also ready to use within 3 hours of application.

The Blue feet initiative aims to fulfil the need through:

Reflecting an existing culture, such as foot prints used in schools to show the way

Guiding passengers away from escalator edges by aligning their feet with the footprints

Can be applied on any make of escalator regardless of age

Along with the deep cleaning, this process will enhance the look of your escalators

We also offer discounted rates for additional escalator maintenance cleans to keep up the new high standard of appearance 

Again, all work is done out of hours, with No escalator downtime

ESD Customer: “By having blue feet added to alternate steps of the escalator, as well as yellow edging and additional signage, there was significant impact on incidents. As a side issue, they noticed that by painting alternate steps with feet, everyone now seems to stand on the feet themselves, leaving one spare step empty, and this has reduced pick pocketing opportunities; if escalator stops suddenly it reduces the likelihood of stumbling. It was noticeable during a recent visit to the centre that customers literally do stand on the painted feet, making mobility issues more manageable in that the individual has additional space and does not feel as vulnerable”
