Tread-TEQ is a lightweight, one-person operational system designed to clean an escalator in just a few minutes. Using the escalator’s propulsion to generate the cleaning action, so no outside power is required, there’s no need to turn the escalator off whilst cleaning.

The Tread-TEQ Pads also come in the same 3 widths (60cm, 80cm, 100cm) and are available in two tread patterns: V-pattern and W-pattern to suit the various escalator brands and manufacturers. Tread-TEO Pads can be rinsed out and are reusable.

Simply place the long sides of the fit card into your Escalator tread (one side at a time) to determine whether the ‘V’ or ‘W’ pattern is suitable.

you can count the number of ridges in a 30.5cm piece of the Escalator step:

  • 34 Ridges = You need a ‘V’ pad
  • 36 Ridges = You need a ‘W’ pad
