thyssenkrupp iWalk is one of the two moving walkway models currently made by thyssenkrupp, the other being the thyssenkrupp Orinoco.

Overview

The thyssenkrupp iWalk is a pallet type moving walkway. A unusual feature of the iWalk is the small, non-rectangular pallets. The pit depth required for the iWalk is shallower than most moving walkways. This might be why the pallets are small, but this is unconfirmed. There is also a slightly elevated version of the iWalk that doesn't require a pit. There is a horizontal, and an inclined model. Like the thyssenkrupp Orinoco, iWalk is designed for commercial and transit applications. iWalk was launched in 2014.
