Atwell Rope Brake
The VG rope brake is a versatile unit that can be used as either a single or bi directional brake and is CE certified by BSI.
The brake operates on the lift ropes and is designated as a “movement prevention” or “speed reducing” means in compliance with EN81-1 1998 clause 9.10. The VG rope brake combines the proven technology of “drop-jaw” type governors with the patented VG linkage mechanism. The brake operates in a similar manner to a VG safety gear except that it has one fixed jaw and one moveable jaw or “drop-jaw”.
- Provides over-speed protection in both directions
- Prevents uncontrolled movement of the lift with doors open when used with a UMD-SRB01 controller
- Can be mounted either side of the traction sheave in any position – horizontally, vertically, at any angle and even inverted
- Its electromechanical design means it is fail-safe
