There are many people wondering whether escalators and stairlift are the same product or the same. And some use the term “escalator” for stairlift. However, this term is a wrong term for stairlift or disabled lift.

The escalator, which we can usually see in shopping malls, ie shopping centers, has nothing to do with a disabled elevator or a stair elevator.

Escalators are types of stairs with movable steps that allow users to stand up or down the stairs between floors.

This is exactly why escalators and stair elevators are not the same product.

Escalators are electrically operated stair systems that are placed on a mechanism whose steps are constantly rotating. They are useful for moving people up or down. They can carry more people than elevators. Its main areas of use are plazas, hotels, shopping malls, train and metro stations and airports.
