Lifts and escalators

Lifts, escalators, moving walkways and airplane gangways

For several years, Pontevedresa Industrial has been developing glass applications specifically for lifts, moving walkways, escalators and airplane gangways.

We can supply manufacturers with a wide range of safety glass: tempered Tempered Glass Plus® (TGP), laminated glass Lamidur® and curved glass Curvam, in particular, to ensure maximum safety levels for users.

TGP technology means that we can supply any kind of finish, keeping the symmetry and continuity of the angle of curvature, and the optical quality of reflection and refraction

In the event of breakage, TGP technology ensures that each fragment has at most the equivalent thickness of glass, thanks to the optimal parameterization of the thermal shock applied to the surface of glass during the tempering process.

Glass as a replacement for traditional materials

Changes in current trends point to glass as a substitute for traditional materials, such as steel and methacrylate, which means that digital can replace analog.


Different kinds of glass—anti-reflective, extra clear, block colour or RAL, laminated using polyvinyl butyral (PVB)—can be customized with the following techniques:

  • Total or partial vitrification
  • Screen printing and printing
  • Insertions: fabric, mesh
  • Frosted and customized glass products


  • Lifts
  • Escalators
  • Moving walkways
  • Airplane gangways
