Buffer Elevator
Buffer Elevator

The Buffer Elevator is designed for the safety of passengers in a plummeting elevator and the double buffer system can provide more secure protection. The inner elevator car is hanged by upper spring sets and there are several groups of cushion rubber and spring below it. At the moment of impact, the upper spring set will pull the elevator car while the lower spring set will push. As the extension of buffer time, passengers will land safely.
