The Model 385 Roller Guide is designed to meet the challenges of higher speed and capacity applications. As a car is loaded, the forces in the system change based on the loading conditions. The Model 385 Roller Guide absorbs this shift with springs located in each individual arm. These springs are designed in such a way that the car will always “float” while running between the rails to provide the smoothest possible ride for the passengers. The Hollister-Whitney Model 385 Roller Guide are configured in a walking beam arrangement so that equal force is applied to each wheel regardless if the elevator has a slight pitch, roll, or yaw due to unequal load distribution in the car. Additionally each arm assembly has an adjustable stop when can be set such that it limits the yaw, pitch and roll movement of the car.
