Ultra roller guide

New life for older buildings

Roller guides travel along hoistway rails to keep your elevator properly aligned as it moves up and down in the hoistway. They help smooth your elevator’s ride by absorbing vibration, much the way the shock absorbers in an automobile’s suspension help it glide over bumps in the road.

Features & benefits

Tests demonstrate that Ultra Roller Guides can potentially reduce vibration by as much as 50% over conventional roller guides.

Rails require less frequent re-alignment caused by car-loading and building shifts

Engineering a luxury ride

As buildings age, they tend to settle, causing shifts in hoistway rail alignment. Continual loading and unloading of the elevator car also contributes to rail misalignment. The result: a notable increase in sway and vibration in the elevator cab, giving rise to passenger anxiety and complaints. Updating alignment will result in a significant reduction of elevator downtime over the life of a building.
