Atwell International - VG Tension WeightA specially designed overspeed governor tension weight incorporating an inbuilt lock down kit and slack rope switch to be used in conjunction with the VG OSG. The VG tension weight weighs a total of 18kg with a tensioning load of 11kg. If used with a standard friction type governor, provisions are included in the design to allow additional plate weights to be fixed to the outside of the frame to increase the overall tensioning weight.

Due to the unique design of the VG overspeed governor’s rope clamping system, the integrity of the system does not rely on friction and therefore allows the use of a specially designed tension weight, the VG tension weight.
