Security, service and design aspects determine the job profile of Böttcher TechGrip®-handrails and thus ask for the optimum material quality. In escalators and moving walkways the flexible endless profile band, which runs synchronically with the steps or the plate band, secures the passenger transport.


TechGrip®-handrails are highly resistant to ageing and ozone. Their rubber surface shines and goes on shining through a combination of elastomer components from the ISO-9001-certified rubber mixing facility in reproducible quality. New weave constructions guarantee an optimum of longitudinal flexibility coupled with excellent form stability and C-cross section rigidity. Other plus points are the energy saving low inner dynamic heat generation, redesigned lips with total freedom from weave on the outside and a rubber-free glide bearing as lateral guide function.

  • Excellent straight-line travel of handrail and continuous-loop joint complete the overall picture
  • Functional, safe and presented in a visually appealing design.

Delivery time

Another benefit to the escalator industry is the short production time achieved with the "online production system", which provides for flexible, reliable response to customers' delivery deadlines.


TechGrip®-handrails are manufactured using a production process developed by Böttcher without intermediate transport or storage phases, the use of modern networked control units reduces individual process interventions to a minimum. A high degree of reproducibility and zero-error orientation are ensured.
