Otis NextStep was an escalator model made by Otis. It is most likely a discontinued model.

Overview

The Otis NextStep escalator has several safety features. The most distinctive feature is the unusual step design (called the "Guarded" design by Otis) that is designed to reduce the risk of objects getting pinched between the steps and the side of the escalator. The riser cleats are doubled, and the comb plate sits 9% deeper between the cleats. These two features reduce the risk of objects getting pinched between the steps and the comb plate. The edges of the steps are more rounded than a conventional escalator, reducing scrapes if a passenger were to fall.
