Millions of people around the world use lifts every day. Passenger lifts can be found in residential buildings, commercial buildings, hotels, shopping centres, clinics, public fa- cilities and many other buildings. It is not just people who travel to different floors in lifts – loads are also transported in lifts on construction sites, in factories or other industrial facilities.
KENDRION manufactures safety brakes for lift technology. The brakes are used to hold and position loads. They are equipped with an emergency stop function, which means that they ensure the system remains reliable and smooth in the event of an unexpected interruption in the flow of power (e.g. in the event of a power failure). When it comes to brakes for lift technology, safety is paramount. Kendrion brakes are certified according to the most current global safety guidelines and standards and are offered as a redundant system. They offer exceptional reliability and play a significant role in the safety of transport systems. In addition, the brakes sustain no permanent damage in an emergency stop and therefore withstand many emergency braking situations without having to be replaced. The brakes are equipped with wear monitoring that monitors wear and indicates when the brake needs to be replaced.
Kendrion offers spring-applied brakes for lift technology in different sizes and versions. Thus, the ideal brake for every application can be selected from our broad product portfolio. In addition, the brake experts at Kendrion develop customised solutions that can be tailored to the individual requirements of the customer.
