Under the epidemic, urban construction in China is still going on. As the main artery of the city, the construction of rail transit has shown a rapid growth trend.
Recently, according to the news released by the Ministry of Transport, a total of 51 cities in my country opened 277 urban rail transit lines in July, and the urban rail transit passenger volume reached 1.95 billion, an increase of 9.55% from the previous month. Guangzhou is vigorously building a "city on track": by 2035, 30 new ones will be added, 1004 kilometers!
The rapid advancement of rail transit construction has driven the huge demand for rail transit heavy-cut escalator equipment, but also put forward higher requirements for the operation efficiency and safety of the escalator.
IFE, which has been deeply involved in the elevator field for 35 years, plays an important role in major rail transit projects at home and abroad with its solid technical strength and efficient service experience, and has many successful projects. IFE has participated in the Karratha Airport project in Australia. In addition, IFE participated in the first major project in the United States: the heavy-duty escalator project in Los Angeles, the United States, with a safety factor higher than 2 times that of the American ASME standard.
Relying on many classic large-scale projects at home and abroad, IFE ELEVATORS has established a good reputation in the world, becoming a globally trusted elevator brand, becoming a vertical force in the rise of Chinese national industrial enterprises, and laying a solid foundation for the continuous development of domestic rail transit projects.
Over the past 35 years, IFE ELEVATORS has been favored by many major projects at home and abroad from China to the world. We always adhere to the value of "paying tribute to the original intention with ingenuity", and insist on making high-quality products. It supports the operation of intelligent rail transit with high-performance, high-safety and high-quality heavy-duty escalators, and is widely recognized for its solid technology and strength.
At present, major cities in China are vigorously developing rail transit systems. However, the traffic characteristics of places with high density and large passenger flow obviously put forward higher requirements for heavy-duty escalators of rail transit type, and are also a major challenge to elevator brands. Elevators in rail transit not only have to transport huge passenger flow in a short period of time, but also maintain the safe operation of escalators under high-intensity and high-load conditions.
Based on the new trend of rail transit development in China, IFE ELEVATORS adjusted its product strategy and launched the new product GRACES-700 heavy-duty escalator as early as 2021. This escalator is developed in strict accordance with the standards of Guangzhou Metro. Compared with the previous escalator products, it is more intelligent, safer and has better performance. It can be widely used in subway and rail transit fields.

1. High-performance core components to meet high-intensity operating requirements
To achieve large passenger flow, first of all, the quality of the core components of the heavy-duty escalator must be excellent. The deflection of IFE's GRACES-700 heavy-duty escalator truss is not greater than 1/1500 of the support distance, and the thickness of the hot-dip galvanized zinc layer is not less than 100μm. High-quality truss welding brings a safer carrying experience for high-density passenger flow.
The escalator drive host adopts the reducer imported from Germany, which not only meets the needs of high-intensity use, but also saves energy and protects the environment. Between the escalator truss and the building, a cast steel sprocket is used, which is wear-resistant, corrosion-resistant and has a longer service life.
2. Multi-layer protection measures to fully guarantee safe operation
In terms of safety protection, the safety factor of the cascade chain of IFE's heavy-duty escalator exceeds 8 times, and multi-layer protection measures are set up, such as anti-rust measures for mechanical structures, protection of electrical components shells, and waterproof or sealing measures for important parts. There are more than 30 safety protection devices in the whole elevator, which fully guarantee the safe operation of public transportation elevators with high daily loads.
Moreover, IFE has also designed a ladder anti-lifting device. When there are foreign objects such as rollers, strollers, etc. stuck on the adjacent steps, it will automatically trigger the safety device and stop the stairs immediately, minimizing the risk of people trapping and reducing accidents.
3. Large-capacity transportation, greatly improving traffic efficiency
Based on the characteristics of large passenger flow in the current domestic rail transit scene, the GRACES-700 heavy-duty escalator developed by IFE has a maximum lifting height of 25.2m. The height design of the new elevator can meet the standards of first-tier cities in China, maximizing the capacity to carry large-capacity people, greatly improving the efficiency of people's traffic, and vigorously alleviating the problem of congestion.
From 1987 to 2022, IFE has grown from an obscure small company to a globally trusted elevator brand, and has continued to grow and expand. In just a few decades, IFE has been able to participate in the construction of rail transit projects and commercial residential projects at home and abroad. In addition to adhering to the pragmatic attitude of independent innovation, high-quality product strength and efficient and excellent service, our success is inseparable from the forward-looking market strategy that closely follows the development of the times.
In the face of the ever-changing elevator market environment, IFE has repeatedly responded to the market changes in the new era of elevators. While constantly consolidating our own technical strength, we constantly adjust our market strategy and strive to develop a broader market. In response to the new changes in the domestic rail transit market, the GRACES-700 public transit heavy-duty escalator launched by IFE has become a key product for enterprises to enter the domestic rail transit field!
For enterprises, there is no shortcut to technological innovation, only hard work. For 35 years, as a national elevator brand, IFE has never stopped the pace of research and development. We are at the same frequency as the times, guided by market demand, adhere to the drive of technological innovation, and are committed to promoting the intelligent and digital development of rail transit with higher performance, higher operating efficiency, safer products and more efficient services.
