Engineered and tested to meet ASME A17.1/CSA B44 and EN81 standards. ELSCO’s Express-6 roller guide is constructed from precision machined, ductile iron castings and is assembled using quality parts to ensure the installed roller guide will GO UNNOTICED.

  • Tandem-Roller Arms

    • 6-wheels give added stability that can easily handle higher loads associated with service and hospital cars or higher speed passenger cars
    • 6-wheel design steps over misaligned rail joints minimizing in-car vibration at high speeds
    • The added stability of the tandem-roller arm design also helps compensate for unbalanced car conditions
  • Neoprene Rubber Roller Wheels

    • Precision manufactured using ELSCO’s proprietary neoprene rubber tread compound
    • 65A durometer tread dampens vibration and reduces noise even in high-speed applications
    • Precisely ground tread profile provides a balanced and concentric roller
    • High-memory tread characteristics prevent flat spotting
    • Excellent resistance to oils, chemicals and UV for extended life
  • Precision Ball Bearings

    • Industrial grade, high quality ball bearings will last for millions of cycles
    • Dual bearing construction provides the roller extra stability, ensuring a true ride, free of noise and vibration
    • Precision bearing press process during assembly at ELSCO ensures perfect fit, alignment and quality
  • Fully Adjustable Stabilizing Springs

    • Independently adjust the pre-load force of the rollers on the rail to minimize bumps and vibration and ensure proper dampening
    • Allow for maximum adjustability to optimize reduction in peak-to-peak lateral forces which improves ride quality
  • Adjustable Stop

    • On the face arm allows control of the overall float of the elevator car between the rails in a post-to-post direction
    • Allows for precise final adjustments to deal with troublesome hoistway issues
  • Ten-Inch Roller Wheels

    • Extra-large diameter rollers reduce wheel RPMs at high speeds resulting in a smoother, quieter ride
    • Help deal with hoistway imperfections that can be especially troublesome in high-rise buildings
  • Heavy Duty Castings and Design Features

    • Precisely machined castings ensure the final assembly is of the highest quality
    • Tested to meet applicable codes and standards ensuring the guides provide a lifetime of reliable performance
