Full Step Refurbishment Programme

A total escalator step refurbishment with a tough powder coat finish

When your escalators are in very poor condition, ESD can provide total step refurbishment to return steps to ‘as good as new’ (some customers have said better than new condition!).

Working in conjunction with your escalator maintenance company the typical procedure is:

Step 1: Your escalator steps are removed by your maintenance company and collected by ESD to transport to our step refurbishment facility.

Step 2: The step components such as rollers, plastic inserts and locking mechanisms are removed from the step.

Step 3: All steps are cleaned and degreased.

Step 4: Steps are bead blasted to remove the existing coating and all surface contaminants.

Step 5: At this stage any damage to the steps ribs can be repaired. Worn/sharp ribs are welded and then machined back to size.

Step 6: The stripped and repaired steps are powder coated in your chosen colour.

Step 7: The steps are reassembled and new rollers are installed. New rollers will make the escalator quieter and reduce the likelihood of breakdowns.

Step 8: The steps are securely packaged and returned to site to be reinstalled in your escalator.
