Two basic configurations are available: SPEEDWALK™; horizontal moving walkways and SPEEDRAMP™ inclined moving walkways – or a combination of both in a single unit. These completely self-contained systems are designed to move people quickly and safely in a controlled manner between two points on the same level or between different elevations. Both can hold shopping carts securely in place unassisted. And every system is custom designed to meet your specific space requirements. So, when you're ready to move ahead, call us!

Westmont is the only company in the U.S. utilizing a belt-pulley system (instead of pallets). This allows us to create longer walkways that are more attractive, easier on the feet and easier on your budget-with fewer moving parts, they require less maintenance! The belt-pulley principle provides a smooth, unbroken treadway surface in virtually any environment, and the unique "floating comb" design permits both pedestrians and shopping carts to move easily on and off the belt surface. Both SPEEDWALK™ horizontal moving walkways and SPEEDRAMP™ inclined moving walkways can hold shopping carts securely in place unassisted.

Moving Walkways


If pedestrian movement is crucial for the success of your business the Speedwalk®/Speedramp® System is the solution to your pedestrian traffic jams. The Speedwalk®/Speedramp® Systems enables you to move large crowds over short or long distances within a limited space.

By maintaining a continuous flow of passengers, Speedwalk®/Speedramp® systems can eliminate congestion and potential accident situations. The smooth, uninterrupted flow of passengers - at speeds of 90 to 120 feet per minute - provides the control necessary to keep pedestrian traffic moving effectively.

Speedwalk/Speedramp units cost less to operate than pallet type moving walkways. The simplicity of a design with relatively few moving parts helps reduce maintenance costs in comparison to other methods.


Each Westmont Speedwalk® or Speedramp® passenger belt conveyor is a self contained powered belt type unit capable of operating under full design load for ascending or descending passenger service. Each unit is designed, manufactured , and installed in accordance with the standards set forth in the American National Standard Safety Code for Elevators, Dumbwaiters, Escalators and Moving Walks, ANSI A17.1 - 1990 including all revisions to date.

Each unit consists of a support structure, drive machinery, transversely rigid rubber covered belt riding on ball bearing rollers outboard of the treadway, floating combs at entry and exit ends, moving handrails, inside balustrades with stainless steel trim and decks, controls, safety devices and all other parts required to provide a complete passenger conveyor.
