Cable-Driven Glass Elevator – How Does It Work?
The Visi cable-driven elevators are self-standing, complete with integrated hoistway. The cab travels within the clear hoistway…raised and lowered by 2 hoisting cables.
Hidden inside the top of the hoistway, we’ll find the motor… the drums… and the gearbox. These devices wind up the cable to raise the cab, and spool out the cable to lower the elevator.
This elevator has many safeties built in, making it 100% compliant with national elevator code. Brakes are built into the ceiling of the cab. If the cables were to go slack for any reason, the brakes would instantly engage and stop the elevator.
The motor control is very smooth and quiet, providing an excellent ride. You will enjoy 360 degree views while smoothly traveling between levels in your home.
