Rope Grippers

Rope Grippers

In recent years, there has been a great deal of discussion about the need and requirement for protection against injuries caused by elevator cars leaving the floor with the doors open and overspeeding in the up direction. That’s why the Hollister-Whitney Rope Gripper®, a remarkable device used to grip elevator suspension ropes to stop an elevator in the event of a mechanical or electrical failure. It is imperative if an elevator overspeeds in the up direction and also in if the elevator leaves the floor with the doors opened.

Roller Guide Shoe

Roller Guide Shoes

Roller Guide SHopes from H-W are “Load Conscious!”. The unique tension system actually causes the rollers to “feel” or “sense” the rail. They adjust for loads near the balanced point and for rail misalignment, while a strong tension takes over to prevent excessive movement as heavier loads are placed off center. Rollers will never leave the rail with this “guide” and the outstanding tension system allows ultra long life of roller wheels. For higher capacities, the ultimate choice is the Hollister-Whitney four-wheel guides. Four wheels control more of the side to side movement.
