Continuous escalator lubrication with simalube

Escalators that are in constant use often start to squeak. To avoid this, optimal lubrication of the system is required. simalube lubricates drive and step chains as well as guides for escalators automatically, continuously and economically. The simple installation, the continuously adjustable running time and the precise lubrication make simalube an indispensable system for escalators and moving walkways.

Lubrication points
The simalube lubricator continuously supplies the drive chain of an escalator with oil; the brush is attached directly to the U-profile and is available for many escalator manufacturers.
The simalube step guide lubrication system, consisting of a short brush, a mounting part and a lubricator, is suitable for Schindler escalators. Installation takes place directly on the step.
The simalube lubrication system incl. brush lubricates and cleans the chain links on both sides; the plastic rollers are only lightly wetted.


  • No pollution of the shaft walls or the covers made of glass
