Key benefits

Increased connectivity

With orinoco, you cover longer distances. Travelling up to 200 metres, orinoco improves mobility and connections in airports and metro stations worldwide.

Greater comfort and more capacity.

At airports and other crowded public spaces, orinoco’s unique 1,600-millimetre-wide pallets raise the bar on safety, comfort and capacity

Seamless safety

Its 405-millimetre-long pallets reduce pallet gaps, enhancing safety and providing a seamless look.

Spatially efficient

Combining upper and lower horizontal runs creates the perfect configuration to maximise both comfort and the use of space. orinoco’s compact truss also saves space.

Designed for versatility

Whether it’s adorning the architecture of airports, metro stations or retail environments, orinoco is like a chameleon. Its numerous design features and options enable it to blend in perfectly. orinoco creates an inviting atmosphere while leaving a lasting impression on shoppers and travellers alike.

Unique front skirt

With its two-way flap system and additional skirt protector, orinoco’s unique handrail inlet stands up to the daily abuse of trolleys and carts. Available in black synthetic or stainless steel, it eliminates unsightly brushes or rubbers and provides lasting good looks. Even better yet, a kick-resistant safety contact reduces stops, increasing orinoco’s availability.

Distinctive balustrades

orinoco features four different balustrades: a slim glass version for a lighter, sophisticated look, a robust decking option for a solid impression, a metal balustrade for a more industrial appearance and a sandwich construction that’s ideal for modern traffic applications. Several colours, finishes and LED lighting options increase the design possibilities.

Aesthetic skirt lighting

Located above the skirt band, LEDs in light-diffusing channels, the full range of RGB colours and different modes of operation create attractive effects throughout your installation. Light barriers for automatic restart modes can also be seamlessly integrated into your moving walk.

Stunning pallets and pallet gap lighting

We provide black or silver pallets with the option of yellow demarcation lines. If you want something more extravagant, we’ll make sure you get that too. Optional blue or green pallet gap lighting ensures passenger safety and adds to orinoco’s visual appeal.

Comb plate safety light

Located at orinoco’s entrance and exit, this comb plate light enhances passenger safety. Available in white or in green and red, it can also be used as a traffic light.

Additional customisable features

To create an even more unique ride experience, you can choose from additional features such as exclusive claddings, striking handrail colours and other lighting options. Traffic lights can be placed in a column, newel, decking or in front of the floor plate. For a finishing touch on inclined units, you may want to add a truss light combined with glass claddings or different kinds of soffit lighting.

Ingenious engineering, exceptional quality

orinoco’s versatile performance and exceptional quality are the result of our best-in-class engineering, advanced production systems and selected energy-efficiency features.

Guiding system: Fit to purpose

Precise engineering and flawless manufacturing are key to ensuring the highest ride quality. With orinoco’s superior guiding system, we ensure exceptional passenger comfort certified to ISO 18738-2.

Precise guide rails

Even pallet run

The guide rails are precisely aligned using best-in-class adjustment jigs to achieve a perfectly even pallet run for the highest ride comfort.

Guiding rollers

Reliable pallet run

The pallets are guided on the track through a nose profile to reduce wear and tear, noise emissions and maintenance.

Smooth run rails

Jolt-free pallet run

The rails enable a smooth transition of the pallet chain rollers from the guide rails to the pallet chain sprocket, eliminating the polygon effect throughout the moving walk and enhancing ride quality.

Pallet fastening: Engineered to perform

Our unique fastening concept uses hollow axles that connect the pallets and chain using solid bolts. The result? Easier installation, operation and maintenance.

Pallet bolts

Convenient and failsafe

Connecting the pallets and chain with bolts makes assembly fool proof and disassembly a snap for maintenance.

No pallet chain axles

Easier maintenance

The hollow axle eliminates the need for a pallet chain axis, providing easy access to the inside of orinoco for maintenance.

Oil caps

Clean and safe pallets

Oil caps at the end of the hollow axle prevent oil from leaking and polluting the pallet tread, keeping pallets clean and safe.

Operation: A focus on sustainability

While a moving walk consumes minimal energy in a building, we strive to continuously improve our moving walks’ performance and sustainability.

Energy efficiency class

Highest energy efficiency Class A+++

Based on the ISO 25745-3 standard and depending on your final configuration, orinoco delivers the highest energy efficiency.

Energy-saving options

Up to 90% reduction in energy consumption

orinoco’s LED lighting cuts energy consumption by up to 90%. You can further reduce the moving walk’s CO2 footprint by opting for different operating modes like intermittent operation or for energy-efficiency features like star-delta.

ETA drive

Increased efficiency, reduced maintenance

With its 96% efficiency and lubrication lasting 40,000 hours, our ETA drive is good news for both you and the environment.

Strengthen your safety commitment

Whether you’re planning a commercial building or infrastructure project, orinoco is the perfect partner for ensuring passenger safety. Proven product configurations and more than 50 safety features and options, including motion safety devices, protect both your investment and your passengers’ wellbeing.

High balustrades

Choose between slim and robust balustrades, available with a continuous height of 1,100 millimetres: Minimises the risk of passengers falling over the balustrade

Brake wear monitoring

Automatically switches off the drive when worn brake linings are detected: Helps prevent malfunctioning and flags maintenance requirements

Skirt monitoring

Stops the unit if users are trapped. The optical version distinguishes between types of hits and readjusts: Both mitigate the risk of injuries while the latter also reduces any downtime caused by false alarms
