Yellow colour plastic step demarcation lines are fitted on the sides and rear of each step. Sound deadening material is coated at the back of the steps for quiet operation.
  • Handrail The handrail is a continuous band design manufactured of vulcanised rubber, factory spliced, with a multi-ply fabric core and steel cord reinforcement.
