Safety Gears

VG8 Safety Gears

The VG8 safety gears have been designed to suit a ‘standard’ range of lifts, with a range of 2,789kg for a trip speed of up to 1.0m/s and 2,425kg for a trip speed up to 2.63m/s on either 9mm or 16mm Cold Drawn, Machined or Aluminium guide rails.

The VG8 is a compact safety gear and measures just 76mm in height and weighs only 7.3kg. They follow the same pattern as the rest of the VG safety gears, and can be installed for downward operation (TD8.3) or bi-directional operation with either having frames under and above the car (TD8.4) or duplexed together under the car (TD8.5).

VG7 Safety Gears

The VG7 safety gears are custom built for each application, and have been designed for low speed and high mass installations with a capacity of up to 12,000kg for a trip speed of 0.5m/s and 10,650kg for a trip speed of 1.5m/s.

VG7 safety gears can be combined to serve as a bi-directional safety gear, in-line with the rest of the VG range. Furthermore these safety gears can be combined as double or even triple units to brake higher loads accordingly.

The VG7 is factory set, and cannot be adjusted on site.

VG6 Safety Gears

The VG6 safety gears are suitable for general use with a high capacity of up to 5,800kg for a trip speed of 0.5m/s and 3,410kg for a trip speed of 4.0m/s. The VG range of safety gears can accommodate Cold Drawn, Machined and Aluminium guide rails with a blade width between 9 and 19mm as standard. The VG6 can also be supplied in an extended frame, which would suit guide rails of up to 32mm.

VG6 safety gears can be used for downward operation only (Application TD1.2), duplexed below the car (TD1.10.1), or fitted above and below the car (TD1.10.3, TD1.4.2) for bi-directional operation for standard installations, and can also be used on systems with four guide rails (TD1.8) with more options available.

VG5 Safety Gears

The VG5 safety gears are suitable for general use with a capacity of up to 2,545kg for a trip speed of 0.5m/s and 1,680kg for a trip speed of 4.0m/s. The VG range of safety gears can accommodate Cold Drawn, Machined and Aluminium guide rails with a blade width between 9 and 19mm as standard.

VG5 safety gears are unique in the VG range of safety gears, as they provide bi-directional protection (TD1.7.1) against overspeeding within a single frame. The VG5 safety gears can be used where pit depth is a concern, with a space saving of 127mm when compared to duplexed VG2a or VG6 units.

VG2a Safety Gears

The VG2a safety gears are suitable for general use with a capacity of up to 3,770kg for a trip speed of 0.5m/s and 2,150kg for a trip speed of 4.0m/s. The VG range of safety gears can accommodate Cold Drawn, Machined and Aluminium guide rails with a blade width between 9 and 19mm as standard. The VG2a can also be supplied in an extended frame, which would suit guide rails of up to 28.6mm.

VG2a safety gears can be used for downward operation only (Application TD1.2), duplexed below the car (TD1.10.1), or fitted above and below the car (TD1.10.3, TD1.4.2) for bi-directional operation for standard installations, and can also be used on systems with four guide rails (TD1.8) with more options available.

M290 Progressive Safety Gears

The M290 safety gears are suitable for general use with a load capacity of up to 4,000kg at speeds of up to 1.6m/s, and can accommodate Machined guide rails with a blade width of 16mm. The M290 model is used for both downward activation and bi-directional activation.

M247 Progressive Safety Gears
