The REN™ escalator cleaning system is covered by U.S. patents 8,337,625 and 9,878,351 and various international patent applications.    REN™ takes its intellectual property rights very seriously, and will pursue any and all violations aggressively and to the fullest extent of the law.

Instructions for use:


Safely block all passenger traffic from escalator before starting cleaning procedure

1)     Mount the REN cleaning pad with the white side to the back of the Pad Holder. Adjust handle angle to approximately 12 degrees.

2)     Fill saturation tub to the white fill line or use specified amount of diluted CS-17 TREAD CLEAN, place the REN pad into the tub and         

        compress firmly with pumping action until the pad is saturated.

3)     Center the REN pad with the oncoming escalator treads, place the REN pad on escalator and apply moderate downward pressure to aid           in the cleaning cycle, making sure to keep the REN pad flat, not tilted forward.  Keep in place for 3 to 5 full escalator rotations.

4)     Repeat the process with a clean REN pad until satisfactory results are achieved.

5)     REN pads can be re-used.  Wash clean the dirty REN pad with a medium water spray using hand squeeze action.  


Safety Tips:

1)     Never stand or step on the device

2)     Keep hands, loose items, clothing, hair & jewelry away from device during operation.

3)     Make sure escalator is completely dry before allowing passengers back on 

4)     Always use the handle to place and remove the device from the escalator

TREAD CLEAN & Dilution Recommendations:

REN™ developed TREAD CLEAN solution for use with Cleaning Pads to achieve maximum results for both restorative, deep cleaning and daily maintenance use.   10:1 dilution ratio is recommended for Maintenance and Emergency spill resolution.

Recommended cleaning solution amount by pad size:


For a 24” pad  -- use 16-oz of diluted CS-17 TREAD CLEAN

For a 32” pad  -- use 20-oz of diluted CS-17 TREAD CLEAN

For a 40” pad  -- use 24-oz of diluted CS-17 TREAD CLEAN


Tips for more effective cleaning:  

1)     Perform a restorative cleaning to get your escalator up to your facilities standards

2)     If your escalator is not quite maintenance condition and has medium dirt/dust, first use  a REN pad dry for several rotations to pick up the           dust. This prevents dust balls forming when moisture is applied.

2)     Schedule regular maintenance cleanings and keep your escalators clean and safe

3)     Have your staff trained and a procedure documented for emergency spill deployment
