No freezing through inclined lift

Reliable operation in spite of freezing temperatures

Enabling the fail-safe, low-maintenance use of inclined lifts at temperatures permanently below freezing point is undoubtedly a demanding task. It requires an energy supply system that effectively protects the cables and does not itself become a nuisance factor. The ice-chain has a long service life and, to a large extent, is maintenance-free.
And, with its intermittent contact points, it is the solution to the specific problem of freezing. As far as the energy supply is concerned, it ensures that the inclined lift is operable at all times. As a result, considerable cost savings are possible, particularly in the area of maintenance, given that the avoidance of recurring expenditure for tests and maintenance significantly increases the economic efficiency of any inclined lift.

When the energy chain rarely moves and temperatures are very low, injection-moulded nubs prevent the chain from freezing solid.
