Considering the importance in safety of the escalators and moving walkways, TÜV HELLAS, as an Inspection body, provides inspection services according to the European Standard EN 115-1 (Safety rules for the construction and installation of escalators and walkways).

Considering the importance in safety of the escalators and moving walkways, TÜV HELLAS, as an Inspection body, provides inspection services according to the European Standard EN 115-1 (Safety rules for the construction and installation of escalators and walkways).

Periodical inspections of escalators and moving walkways are of particular importance since they serve the general public in areas with heavy traffic. It should be noted that due to the nature of their operation, accidents occur more often in escalators than in conventional lifts.

Inspection by an Accredited Body ensures that the escalators & walkways conform objectively to the European safety specifications during installation and at regular time intervals.

Inspection according to the European Standard EN 115-1 usually includes the following:

  • Check of safety distances to adjacent building elements
  • Visual inspection
  • Testing of safety devices
  • Operational tests

In addition to the above inspections in accordance with EN 115-1, TUV HELLAS undertakes the following:

  • Design approval and selection of equipment based on intended use
  • Inspection during construction (project supervision)
  • Inspections after significant modifications and expert evaluations
  • Special inspections by experts concerning equipment components or specific operational requirements (ride quality, noise, etc.)

TUV HELLAS is an Accredited Inspection Body by the National Accreditation Council (ESYD) to perform inspections of escalators and walkways according to European standard EN 115-1. TUV HELLAS in the last years has shown considerable experience in escalators & moving walkways, having inspected equipment in big projects such as International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos", new Railway Station of Athens, "424" Military Hospital /Thessaloniki, New Larnaca Airport, shopping centres and cruise ships.
