Starglide’s proprietary system includes multiple technological elements that decrease the risk of injury and facilitate a positive travel experience. Its anti-static and slip-resistant treadway is safer for all travelers. In addition, the belt moves beneath the skirting, ultimately eliminating vertical side gaps. Its continuous profile also prevents
objects from jamming. Both features help reduce the chance of passenger injury and provide peace of mind for those traveling with children or the elderly. With its rotating pulley system, the belt design also provides travelers with a quieter, more comfortable experience. In comparison to pallet walkways, the cleated rubber belt is easier on the joints and offers a solution for travelers that may be in need of more ergonomically-friendly options while getting to their next destination.
The belt walkway system uses a low level of lubricants and outputs low levels of soiled waste. Utilizing rubber belt walkway systems in lieu of traditional pallet systems can also help airports interested in exploring energy renewal initiatives and green building construction achieve LEED certification.
Starglide offers an alternative, more long-term solution to simply replacing or repairing current infrastructure. Its design offers airport operators the ease of replacing their current pallet belt walkway with minimal disruption to the floor. With its relatively shallow pit depth and longitudinal flexibility, it is able to accommodate an extensive range of operation conditions. The Starglide system also utilizes fewer parts and, ultimately, requires less maintenance, which not only saves on costs but it also means less downtime.
