Utrymning via rulltrappor
Sammanfattning: The object of this report is to investigate whether it´s suitable or not to use escalators in exits. To make this determination, it is necessary to examine walking speeds and pedestrian traffic. Practical experiments were executed at Knutpunkten, Helsingborg, were travellers were filmed while using the escalators. The experiments were designed to test a number of variables using pre-determined scenarios. The films were later studied and walking speeds and traffic flow were received. The material also gave important insights about peoples reactions and behaviour while using the escalators. The results show small differences in walking speed between stairs and escalators. Despite this, it is not considered suitable to use today´s escalators as a means of exit. This conclusion is based on various factors that were observed during the practical experiments.
