step 100 is a cleaning machine which is specifically manufactured for cleaning escalators. the machine is manufactured with high-quality material and components by a german manufacturer, columbus company. step 100 is equipped with two separate tanks, the solution tank and recovery tank, each of which come with a capacity of 20 liters and provide a cleaning width of 520 mm. the machine components are made of stainless steel, aluminum, and firm plastic which is leak- proof, long lasting and resistant.
step 100 uses either water or the cleaning detergent of the recovery tank and vacuums the dirt and debris into recovery tank and this way there will be no traces of water left on the surface. that is why the escalator can be used right after the cleaning process. as a mechanized machine, step100 can be adjusted to perform on different escalators, and is capable of washing all sorts of escalators.
the stripping brushes can clean both horizontal and vertical surfaces perfectly. there are some control bottoms on the machine, which are used to turn the machine on and off and can adjust different functions of the machine. in case the stairs are too dirty, the operator can add some detergent to the water tank so as to reach the expected level of cleanliness. water and solution splash levels can be set according to how dirty the steps are. the machine is also equipped with smooth wheels which can be used to transfer the machine on the escalator or on any other surfaces. the brake and safety guards protect both the machine and the operator while working and the cleaning process is done in a completely safe and secure manner. when the cleaning process begins, the machine cleans the first step and when done, ascends upward, to clean the next step.
step 100 escalator-cleaning machine special features
step 100 is a unique machine, with some essentially exclusive features that distinguish it from other commercial cleaning machines. some outstanding features of step 100 will be discussed as follows.
efficient stripping brushes
step 100 is equipped with some brushes for optimized cleaning of the steps. though the stripping brushes which are used in step 100 have a very small cross section, they provide the best possible performance when washing horizontal or vertical surfaces.
the machine can only operate when the escalator is off. after applying the necessary settings, and turning it on, the machine will wash the steps one by one and moves upward. step 100 continues moving upward and cleans all vertical and horizontal surfaces thoroughly.
easy to be controlled
step 100 is equipped with a control panel, with several buttons on it, all of which control the functions of the machine and the operator can adjust them all with no complexities. on and off bottoms, upward or downward movement, suction adjustment, and all other functions are quite clearly determined on the control panel.
ease of use
the machine comes with some pre-determined programs and the operator can choose one for each purpose. an important advantage of having these pre-determined programs is that with regard to how polluted the escalator steps are, the operator can choose a program which can definitely help him save water. another positive aspect to bear in mind refers to the control keys which facilitate working with the machine.
the powerful suction system of the machine is designed in a way that cleaning the floor and collecting the waste water happen simultaneously. as a result, the escalator will be ready to be used right after the cleaning operation and there will be no dangers of slipping or risks of falling down.
high security and excellent balance of the machine
this type of escalator-cleaning machine benefits from smooth wheels which facilitate its movements on the escalator. in addition to that, the brake system and the safety guards have contributed a lot to the safety and balance of the machine while operating. the gravity center of the machine is on its front, as a result the machine can keep its balance while moving upward and downward.
