Increased interior space, minimal comb heights and reduced outer dimensions help make transportation more convenient.


The reduced weight, lower static load requirements and modular structure allow for last-minute design changes, while the pit-less solution eliminates the need for any additional civil work These make iwalk suitable for sensitive surroundings.


The thyssenkrupp handrail inlet with a two-door flap system eliminates rubber guards or brushes and reduces unintended activation.


A 30% weight reduction compared to conventional designs provides the chance to reduce floor thickness and thus enhance the visual quality of the building through higher ceilings.


In compliance with international codes, iwalk’s standard 1,100 mm pallet width enables large
trolleys and carts to be used with ease.
