Escalators are large and expensive machines that are used in building around the world. While these machines seem complex, they are simply a large version of a basic conveyor belt.
The belt works by a series of rotating chain loops, which pull the escalator stairs. Although the design of escalators is fairly simple, they are still dangerous because of their large size and frequent use.
With so many people riding escalators every day, they are subject to extensive wear and tear. If the escalators are not properly maintained, they may break down, which could lead to serious accidents for people that use escalators.
