The trusted industry standard for mid-rise elevator cabins.
The Model B Roller Guide offers exceptional performance in a compact, easy-to-install package. A broad application range, ease of use, and outstanding value have made the Model B our most popular roller guide.
Typically used on moderate-speed, moderate-capacity elevator cabins, the Model B is equipped with a number of ride-improving features that have made it the preferred choice of so many elevator contractors around the world.
Neoprene Rubber Roller Wheelsare specially compounded and rigorously tested to ensure a smooth, silent ride. Only genuine ELSCO neoprene wheels provide the damping characteristics essential to ride quality, and only genuine ELSCO wheels are engineered with high “memory” characteristics that prevent flat spots. ELSCO rollers are precision ground to within .002 inches (,051mm) “Total Indicator Reading” for perfect roundness and concentricity, then 100% inspected under stress to ensure a secure bond between tire and hub.
Precision Ball Bearingsguarantee years of silent use. ELSCO specifies bearings intended for the high RPMs and demanding loads of electric motors – conditions far more rigorous than typically seen in elevator applications. This means that even after years of operation and tens of millions of cycles, only ELSCO roller wheels remain completely silent. Each bearing bore is machined to a tolerance of five ten-thousandths (.0005) of an inch (,0127mm), and two bearings are pressed into each wheel by a computer-driven press, ensuring perfect fit and alignment.
Fully Adjustable Stabilizing Springsallow the car to float between the rails, eliminating the bumps and vibrations that adversely affect ride quality.
Adjustable Stopsenable precise control of the car’s overall float between the rails, in both postwise and front-to back axes.
Durable Structural ComponentsELSCO castings are made from hightensile-strength ductile iron and aluminum for an optimal combination of strength, durability, and light weight. High quality guide hardware ensures long life and ease of adjustment in the field. All components are inspected and assembled to exacting standards for a lifetime of reliable performance.
