We carry a complete line of sliding guide shoes for low-speed hydraulic and service elevators.
ELSCO’s spring-loaded Swivel Sliding Guide Shoesprovide ride quality in a cost-effective package for those applications that do not allow for the installation of roller guides. Unsurpassed build quality and durable materials ensure a lifetime of reliable performance, and a comprehensive array of sizes and gib liner options ensure that that ELSCO Swivel Sliding Guide Shoes are suitable across a wide range of applications.
Spring-loaded shoes allow postwise float, and cushion the bumps and vibrations that adversely affect ride quality. Adjustable Stops enable precise control of the car’s overall postwise float between the rails and Quiet, Low-Friction Molybdenum Disulfide infused Nylon guarantee years of silent, trouble-free use.

Spring-Loaded, Swivel-Mounted Shoesallow the elevator to float between the rails in a controlled manner, greatly reducing the bumps and vibrations that adversely affect ride quality. Swivel mounting allows the guide to follow the subtle contours of the rail, eliminating “slip-stop-slip” shudder and noisy performance.
Molybdenum Disulfide infused Nylon Gibsguarantee years of silent, trouble-free use. Molybdenum Disulfide filled nylon gibs include a graphite-like solid lubricant impregnated into the gib material and provide added durability, particularly in applications where rails are not lubricated. Gibs are made to fit 5/8-in. (16mm) rail blades, and can be modified to fit 3/4-in. (19mm) rails.
Durable Structural ComponentsELSCO slide guide castings are made from high-tensile-strength gray and ductile iron 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. . Rail gibs can be modified to accommodate 18.5-lb. (T140-1B) rails.
Adjustable Stopsenable precise control of the car’s overall postwise float between the rails.
