  • 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
    • Compensate for hoistway imperfections that affect elevator ride performance
  • Fully Adjustable Stabilizing Springs

    • Independently adjust the pre-load force of the rollers on the rail to minimize bumps and vibration and ensure optimal ride quality
    • 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
  • 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

    • 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
  • Robust Casting and Design Features

    • Precisely machined castings are tested to meet applicable codes and standards ensuring the guides provide a lifetime of reliable performance
  • Innovative Design Features

    • Patented adjustment features are designed for quick and simple installation, reducing installation costs
    • Hub adjustment and adjustable stop assemblies are pre-installed at the factory
  • Counterweight Applications

    • Recommended for use as a counterweight with the Express-6 at speeds up to 1,400 fpm, and capacities from 3,000 – 6,000 lbs, and with the Express-3 at speeds up to 2,000 fpm and capacities from 3,000 – 4,000 lbs
