Product Description

Patented design features on the Model C roller guide ensure counterweights in high speed applications run just as quietly in the hoistway as the car. Slim design allows for use on a wide range of elevator applications and rail sizes, and it can even be used as a car guide where a smaller roller is required for clearance.

Designed for elevator counterweights up to 1,200 fpm or 10,000 lbs capacity in mid to high-rise buildings, the Model C is a high-speed 6-wheel paired-roller guide with spring suspension, an adjustable stop on the face arm and six premium 3-1/4″ diameter neoprene rollers.

Engineered and tested to meet ASME 17.1/CSA B44 and EN81 standards. ELSCO’s Model C roller guide is constructed from precision machined, ductile iron castings and is assembled using quality parts to ensure your elevator ride will GO UNNOTICED.

  • 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
  • Precision Ball Bearings

    • Industrial grade, high quality ball bearings will last for millions of cycles
    • Dual bearing design provides the roller extra stability to ensure a true ride, free of noise and vibration
  • Tandem-Roller Arms

    • 6-wheels give added stability that can easily handle higher speeds and capacities
    • 6-wheel design steps over misaligned rail joints minimizing counterweight or in car vibration at high speeds
  • 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 horizontal forces which improves ride quality
  • Adjustable Stop

    • On the face arm allows control of the overall float of the counterweight between the rails in a post-to-post direction
    • Allows for precision final adjustments to deal with troublesome hoistway issues
  • Robust Casting and Design Features

    • Machined grease groove around the hub ensures improved distribution of grease to reduce friction
    • Precisely machined castings ensure the final assembly is of the highest quality
  • Innovative Design Features

    • Patented adjustment features are designed for quick and simple installation, reducing installation costs
    • Hub adjustment and Float adjustment assemblies are pre-installed at the factory
    • Face roller wheel rail pressure is easily adjusted to recommended pressure by turning the hub adjustment screw
