Washington State Convention Center Summit Building to Feature EHC Global’s Patented NT9000 Escalator Handrail

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 13, 2019 (Oshawa, Canada) – EHC Global (EHC), a leading manufacturer of handrails, rollers, composite steel belts, and components to the vertical transportation industry, is pleased to announce Washington State Convention Center (WSCC) in Seattle, Washington, will feature EHC’s patented NT9000 escalator handrail in their new Summit building. WSCC, one of the largest convention centers in the Pacific Northwest region of the USA, is currently undergoing a major expansion project. The Summit building will be located one block from the existing facility and will more than double the current capacity of the WSCC when it opens in 2022. EHC has supplied TufFlex™ handrail, ADRail™, Field-Splicing, and D-Flector™ safety brushes to the WSCC in the past.

The Summit building will be a transformative project for the region, connecting neighborhoods, bolstering the economy, and creating an iconic addition to the architectural and cultural landscape. Summit’s 21st Century design is vertically stacked and will have a distinctively Northwest feel. The project will enable WSCC to capture business it currently and consistently turns away due to lack of space availability.

“EHC is proud to be providing our patented NT9000 escalator handrail as part of Washington State Convention Center’s exciting Summit Building expansion project,” commented Jeno Eppel, President and CEO of EHC Global. “EHC has provided escalator handrails and onsite splicing services to many leading convention centers and meeting venues throughout North America and around the world.”

Developed by EHC, the patented NT handrail platform was introduced in 1997 as an environmentally friendly and technologically advanced alternative to conventional rubber-based products. The NT suite of value-added solutions, collectively referred to as “NT+”, has been engineered to provide enhanced safety, wayfinding, aesthetics, and branding. The NT+ product family includes ColourRail™, SafeRail™, MotionRail™, BrandRail™, AMRail™, and ADRail™. Available in a wide range of profiles and colours, NT handrail is recyclable, easy-to-clean and requires minimal maintenance.
